Utopia with live performances from Tamaki Makaurau's concious hip hop and neo soul heavy hittersThird3ye, Eno X Dirty, Badcrop, Bailey Wiley and Illbaz.
A night not to be missed.
Third3ye / Gvrdengang / Ygb / the Growroom
Based in Auckland "City of $ales",Third3ye represents a collective of like-minded artists, coming together to produce a spiritually-conscious form of Hip Hop "They were into crystal healing before we had crystal meth. While you were looking for your keys they were looking for enlightenment ".
ENO X DIRTY / YGB / OZM / RMC
Remember when local Hip Hop shit was good? Before drake cover band rappers were dressing like they were going to a paint party. Before the garden sprinkler hi hats and shitty pitched down Jodeci samples. Before the shape triangle changed it’s government name to the letter A. Eno x Dirty are the sound of then.
Badcrop / the Growroom
Badcrop is the dying pot plant next to the tv in your living room. Ambassadors of the growroom and organic poets, these introverted beings can be found in a room at the top of St Kevins arcade cultivating vibrations at strange hours of the morning.
Few artists come new to the game with such a fearless and complete approach to music. Bailey Wiley filters neo-soul classicism through modern, rightous production and true live musicianship. The star of the show is that golden voice -effortless and organic, itʼs like having honey poured into your ears.
Illbaz / Ammonation
A fucking legend. ILL BAZ is everywhere in Auckland City. Pretty much took every dj's job. A machine on the turnies. Who is this guy anyway.
