You may or may not have heard of Zane Lowe, the 44-year-old Kiwi mu­sic pro­ducer/DJ/ra­dio host who is now pretty much run­ning the show at Ap­ple Mu­sic, but El­ton John, Lorde, Beck and Frank Ocean are among those who are reg­u­larly in­ter­viewed by him on his show, streamed around the world. It’s been quite the jour­ney for Lowe — the son Derek Lowe, one of the orig­i­nal Ra­dio Hau­raki pi­rates — from start­ing out as a mem­ber of elec­tronic band Breaks Co-op to find­ing suc­cess in Lon­don as the host of the BBC’s Ra­dio 1 show for 12 years. Chris Schulz spent some time shad­ow­ing him and his story on Lowe cap­tures the crazy, high-oc­tane world he now moves in.

Also this week, Greg Bruce spends a night at Diner en Blanc, and Ruth Spencer imag­ines what fa­mous psy­chol­o­gists Freud, Jung and Pavlov would make of to­day’s trends.
