Live Performance from:
TAK UN DA
Lash’s hard hitting punch lines delivering a mischievous style and a dynamic live performance. Late 2015 saw the release of his debut EP ‘Anonymous Antics’ and its clear there was no looking back for Lash.
Anonymous Antics was a step back in time for Lash as he took on his own past and continues to take on his present. Exploring places and attempting to relive all the moments he has never taken himself or his audience too within his music and digging deep into why "Lash" is who he is.
After emerging onto the stage less than 18 months ago, dropping two mixtapes and his debut EP Lash has gone opening for and supporting hip hop heavy weights such as Pharoahe Monch, Rates, Relic & Ghetto Socks, L Fresh the Lion as well as many more.
Continuing to play regular live shows and with a steady stream of releases Lash has made a name for himself as one of Canberra’s best up-and-coming hip hop acts. Stay tuned.
TAK UN DA
Tak-Un-Da (TK) through a steady consumption of US East and West-coast hip-hop his lyrical presence is enforced by his eclectic style put together through an exposure to a legion of different cultures.
Teaming up with producer Sammy Sosa the pair have been working on hidden library of beats and verses in preparing for TK’s upcoming ‘untitled’ debut record whilst keeping everyone in anticipation of whats to come next.
Dropping hit singles across the board from 2015 and into 2016, with notable favourites like Got Next, Toxic and STFU show casing collaborations with Producer Ventures and rap duo The Ansah Brothers.
Tak-Un-Da’s performance at ‘Fashfest' 2015 highlighted his artistry and passion for performing, with TK going on strong to play shows in Canberra and Melbourne. February 2016 saw TK taking to the stage of HyperNova joining the likes of Chvches, San Sisco Basenji and Ed Fisher.
From those ever smooth emotionally charged harmonies to deep lyricism based on spirituality, politics and drug what rock has been left unturned.
2015 saw a massive year for Jedbrii having released his debut project the ‘Mindstate's Mixtape’ this well received release saw gaining air time on the Triple J Hip Hop Show, it was safe to say
Jedbrii was not going anywhere.
With the Mindstates Mixtape released things quickly ramped up for Jedbrii, taking to the stage with DJ ILL Gato the pair went on to support such hip hop icons as Brother Ali and Devin the
Dude, the Tougne, Nfa Jones (1200 techincs), Mr Carmack and the legendary DJ Houseshoes from Detroit.
2016 is set to be no different and surely will see no slowing down for Jedbrii who is currently working on his debut full length album, aiming to drop later this year. Do yourself a favour and get familiar with Jedbrii.
