Legendary DJ Z-Trip announces shows in Sydney and Melbourne

Legendary DJ Z-Trip has announced shows in Sydney and Melbourne for January next year.

Z-Trip is considered to be one of the best live performance DJs in history. Notably for being dubbed as the Rick Rubin of the DJ world with his roots based in Hip Hop, but he covers and loves all music styles.

Z-Trip received the title of "America’s Best DJ" and still remains on the top 10 lists year after year.

Just like Rick he helped design his own signature series DJ mixer, the Rane 62Z. Z-Trip has collaborated with some of the very best to ever do it: Nas, Bassnectar, Public Enemy, DJ Shadow, Rakim, Shepard Fairey, Talib Kweli and many others.

Z-Trip’s sound has a unique place in todays music scene. As a performer, he is one of the very few able to play traditional festivals like Coachella, Lollapalooza, Bonaroo, SXSW and Australia’s Big Day Out, as well as the EDM circuit. His Electric Daisy Carnival and Electric Zoo sets were both festival highlights.

His artist debut album “Shifting Gears” received 4 stars in Rolling Stone. As a producer, he worked on Activision’s DJ Hero series. 

He’s also a featured avatar in the game alongside Daft Punk, Tiesto, Grandmaster Flash and Deadmau5. Z-Trip also remixed tracks for Nirvana, The Beastie Boys, Dead Weather and The Jackson 5 to name a few. 

Most recently, he collaborated with Lee Scratch Perry to rework Bob Marley’s classic “Punky Reggae Party” and with Brillz for Jay Z’s hit “Dirt Off Your Shoulder”.

Z-Trip is known for his YouTube video rocking 40K with LL Cool J in DC on the 4th of July.

ABRA adds Sydney and Brisbane to debut Australian tour

ABRA has added intimate headline shows in Sydney and Brisbane, ahead of her appearance at Victoria’s inaugural Pitch Music & Arts Festival.

ABRA is an outlier. Moving around with her missionary parents, ABRA was born in New York and raised in South London, before eventually landing in Atlanta. Like her upbringing, ABRA’s music isn’t specific to a place, a time, or a sound. Instead, it’s a blend of influences, informed — but not defined — by its surroundings. Utilizing different components of Miami Freestyle and electro-funk 808’s topped with her own airy R&B-tinged vocals, ABRA’s voice and sounds are familiar, but uniquely contemporary.

Every note on the ‘Princess’ EP, released via True Panther Sounds, is written, produced, and performed by ABRA – often in the solitude of her bedroom closet. As an introverted youth, she dug into the internet to find community and inspiration. Ultimately, ABRA found solidarity within The Awful crew, a collective of friends, artists and collaborators creating their own hypercolor, DIY version of Atlanta’s burgeoning weirdo-rap movement.

Amongst features on various Awful Records’ alumni tracks, her own music and image is revered. She conceives her own videos and acts as art director for all packaging and photo shoots. ‘Princess’ is a portal into her self-contained universe and it shines with a profound confidence. Never compromising on her vision or artistic process, she has moulded her surroundings into her strict aesthetic and vision. No longer a lone outlier, she is a leader and lightning rod for a world of fellow outsiders. ABRA is a true ‘Princess’ in a monarchy of her own creation.
