The Kiwi Hit Disc has been rebranded as NewTracks from April 2015.
NewTracks is still a 28-track monthly compilation of the best new radio-ready releases by New Zealand artists - like the Kiwi Hit Disc was - but it is delivered via our new www.newtracks.co.nz site rather than a CD in the post.
There will still be a disc version available upon request but we will only have limited numbers. If you have a particular reason you still need a CD copy, please contact Tania Dean.
From April, radio stations and other registered music media users who used to get the Kiwi Hit Disc in the mail will now log in at www.newtrack.co.nz to access the latest monthly release and will be able to download broadcast-quality copies of the songs.
The Kiwi Hit Disc has a proud 180-volume 22 year history. The first Kiwi Hit Disc was produced in 1993 and since then, we have delivered close to 5,000 of the best New Zealand songs to every radio station in the land, from the biggest national networks to schoolyard radio stations.

The name and how it's delivered have changed but the mission remains the same - connecting great songs by New Zealand artists with audiences via the broadcast media.
