She Rex:

In prehistoric times the fierce roar of dinosaurs dominated the earth. Fast-forward sixty million years and those earth-­‐shattering rumbles have evolved. Enter She Rex. The mammoth pound; shrill guitar riffs; the grizzly growl of a heavy bass line and the swag a colossal She King can spit. The kind of sound that makes rocks roll.

She Rex has been a project in the making for the past three years. Tired of the same of hip hop and rock scenes, front woman NIkkita and drummer Tash Adams A.K.A. The Hitwoman dreamt of creating a new sound that was fresh, feisty and fierce whilst oozing femininity. Inspired by The Black Keys, Queens of the Stone Age, MIA and Rage Against The Machine their journey began.
With the set complete, She Rex, has been unleashing their acclaimed live show to the Sydney masses for the past year, playing hot spots, Brighton Up Bar, The Standard, The Annandale, Manning Bar and Goodgod Small Club amongst many others. With a healthy collection of tracks to their name, their first release 11th Hour epitomizes their journey until now. This is their time.

Citizen Kay:

Originally born in Ghana, then moving to the Capital of Australia while still very young, Citizen Kay has grown up with an ambition to make his way into the music scene. Beginning as an aspiring songwriter with a love of hip-hop, he began rapping under the name 'Kay'. Since 2008 Kay has become well known for rapping in the Capital. He has written, produced and recorded songs for himself and collaborated with many others, gaining a reputation as 'the go-to guy' for other artists around town.

Focusing on honing his beat making and building his reputation over the years; Citizen Kay is set to release his debut EP this April. Included on the long awaited release is current single 'Ansah Brothers' featuring Kay's little brother Genesis Owusu with the cheeky clip following the brothers to a driving range.

Deadbeat and Hazy:

This mad pair is hell bent on taking Hip Hop to the next level as they pave their way into Sydney’s live music scene. Deadbeat and Hazy are creating their own version of Alternative Hip Hop with DJ/Producer Hazy pushing forward relentlessly layering and infusing his Hip Hop beats with virulent low frequencies. Deadbeat’s deep flow fits perfectly to the Hazy beats as he throws light on current social issues, as well as paying homage to the grand party atmosphere of our fine day.

Between them, determination is rife and the list of venues hosting the pair is growing fast with successes at; The Standard, The Annandale, Brighten Up, The World Bar, The Sando, Oxford Art Factory, FBi Social, The Abercrombie, The Backroom, Club Sabotage and The Flinders.

Kidd Shamm:

After having 3 original tracks flying around the Triple J Unearthed Hip Hop Charts, Kidd Sham has been in lockdown working on a mix tape that’s gonna shake your mind up. This mix tape has been stewing in the creative juices of the mind of Samuel Hinks AKA Kidd Sham since he started writing at 12 years old... and yes it’s a mix tape, and yes you’ve heard a mix tape, but you still haven’t heard THIS mix tape! His unique voice and lyrics have been compared to the likes of Frank Ocean, and with a live show that’s second to none... Watch this space for his debut release from the 21 year old singer/songwriter/rapper dropping May 2013.
