Strictly DT - Melbourne via Perth via Seattle artist Strictly D.T returns with his first new music in two years on the contemplative and empowering track My Life. Since breaking out on his own as a fully independent artist and releasing the first of a new chapter of self reflective works with his EP Note to Self in 2019, Strictly D.T has garnered a reputation as one of the country's most madly respected lyricists. Fast forward to 2022, with an International Songwriters Competition win endorsed by Ziggy Marley, Lorde, Booker T. Jones, Tom Waits and more under his belt, the unstoppable artist is finally back with some fresh bars to sink your teeth into.

Since moving to Australia Strictly D.T has supported the likes of Mos Def, Common, Pete Rock & CL Smooth, and has hosted his own shows as well as making an appearance on triple js Bars of Steel alongside some of the best established and emerging rappers around Australia. D.T has worked with the likes of veteran DJ Tek, Sydney based producer Ralph Radical, and most recently with the HALO Vocal Ensemble, selling out both the Melbourne Museum for Melbourne Music Week, and Northcote Town Hall for Melbourne Jazz Festival, as well as performed packed shows at the iconic Fremantle Arts Centre, Mojos Bar and the Rosemount Hotel.

Trix William - Having multiple years of performing under his belt, gracing the stage up and down the coast of Australia became a regularity. Trix William was recognised for his strong tone and diction, his ability to weave complex lyrical flows with precision, fierce fiery delivery and uniquely expressive lyricism inspired from his roots growing up as a coastal kid in the Northern Rivers of NSW. Trix William expands his musical diversity through innovation, honest inspiration and the culmination is a unique and engaging listening journey that will keep you guessing where the vibe will take you to next.

Former Australian Coast2Coast Winner, Producer, Singer and Songwriter, Trix William is working on numerous single releases to debut in the course of 2k22.

Aero.D - Melbourne based/Westcoast-raised lyricist Aero.D has been putting pen to page since primary school. His songs are cathartic, forged from a desire to accurately represent himself, his perspectives and emotions through his words. Aeros sound is introspective, abstract and ethereal blended with both traditional and newschool HipHop sensibilities.
