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.

Canadian Zeds Dead headlines Hard Australia Event

Canadian headliner Zeds Dead who will bring their bass heavy performance to Australia as part of their world tour for their debut album Northern Lights. Dropping at the end of this month, HARD Australia attendees can expect to hear a number of new tracks from the highly anticipated upcoming album, including collaborations with Diplo, Pusha T, NGHTMRE, Elliphant & Twin Shadow. 

Joining the duo, will be the Miami based act GTA. In even more good news for HARD Australia fans, GTA also has a debut album to showcase at this event. Out early October and featuring tracks with Vince Staples, Tinashe, What So Not and more, GTA are expected to bring some serious heat to the stage.

Destructo reveals his spot on the lineup in what will be a huge moment for HARD Australia. Having collaborated with Ty Dollar $ign, YG, Pusha T and Wax Motif (amongst others), Destructo sits comfortably between the upper echelons of hip-hop and dance music's often separate worlds. From founding a US music empire to consistently delivering a high-quality musical output, Destructo's return to Australia is highly anticipated.

Also on board this December is OWSLA and Mad Decent affiliate Ghastly. From Arizona, the DJ and producer has overtaken many of his peers in the electronic realm – from collaborating with NGHTMRE, Diplo & JAUZ – to forging his dark, melodic productions in high-energy performances wherever he goes.

REZZ also joins the line up; another producer and DJ whose output is highly prolific and frequent. Recently tipped by inthemix as a producer to watch in 2016 and now making her Australian debut – REZZ, from Niagara Falls has proven how high she can climb with her hard-hitting productions that have caught the eye of Skrillex’s website Nest, received releases on deadmau5’s mau5trap label and drawn comparisons to Gesaffelstein.
