⚶ Jay Cooper
The 21 year old Sydney native, formerly known as JaysWays, returns from a year in North America collaborating and developing with several upcoming US artists & Grammy-winning producers. At his only headline Sydney live show, he will be performing new material before returning to LA in 2018. Jay Cooper combines his raw vocal expression and visual storytelling with the glistening textures and signature percussion that has previously defined his alluring sound.
⚶ Marcus Not Singing
Marcus Not Singing is a solo project of Sydney's own Marcus Whale, one of the most prolific and exciting musician/performers of the city's creative scene. This incarnation sees Marcus conjure a brooding, dark energy through screeching club patterns and vocals as a pure outlet for angst & cathartic release. His voice's distinctive range and emotional power combined with the kind of devastation felt through punk/metal outlooks make for an intense and dynamic performance.
⚶ Selasie Wussah
Underground Sydney artist Selasie Wussah finds a confidence in acknowledging how one's gifts and weaknesses intersect. It's a space in hip hop reserved for those willing to face themselves and let the words be said as they need to. Honing his skills in writing, performing & expanding work, Selasie is a developing Australian artist with a rare talent and distinct global appeal.
⚶ Esar (DJ)
On selection duties is Esar of Sydney's Strxnger Collective. As a producer & beatmaker himself, Esar explores the spaces between hardbody energy & a romantic nostalgia across the spectrum of hip hop, R&B, and alternative beats.
