Brothablack

Australia's pioneer of Indigenous Hip-Hop Brothablack is back with some heavy ammunition in the shape of a new album “More Than a Feeling”, along with a renewed hunger for mainstream recognition.

Crowds got a taste of Brothablack's new tunes at the Sydney Festival Becks Bar and helped him to blow the roof off the hothouse at this year's Big Day Out.

Busting out beats for more than 15 years, Brothablack has old school Hip Hop running through his veins. He first made his mark on the scene as a founding member of the Indigenous Hip-Hop crew, South West Syndicate - 1992 to 2003 notorious for their quippy and in ya face act.

Brothablack proved his worth in 2003, picking up a Deadly at the Sydney Opera House for most promising new talent in Aboriginal music with the South West Syndicate boys.

The single Brotha's Back was included in Triple J's Hip Hop show compilation and he has been featured as a part of AusMusic Month for Next Crop '06.

His breakthrough single ‘Are you with me out there' fast became an anthem for underground Hip Hop goers and has recently added some genuine south-west side grunt to the smash hit TV series ‘Dangerous' (Foxtel) soundtrack.

Brothablack is also an accomplished actor/performer with more than 100 performances under his belt. His theatre productions include Urban Theatre Projects' The Longest Night (Adelaide Festival 2002) and Back Home which was a resounding success at the 2006 Sydney Festival & in June of 2007 Brothablack toured Canada with this groundbreaking production, giving the international scene a taste of his exceptional talents as a performer.

Brothablack has a long history working in remote and urban Aboriginal communities teaching hip-hop and helping mentor young people to assert their skills in the subculture.

Brothablack continues to develop his own musical/artistic output whilst actively promoting and encouraging younger and emerging Indigenous hip-hop artists.

In 2004 Brothablack joined forces with UK production unit The Turbomen to produce an album of cutting edge Aussie Hip-Hop. He is now poised to hit Australia with his take on the traditional Hip-Hop blueprint in his solo debut Album “More Than a Feeling”.
