These are good tapes, lemme tell ya. hand numbered, attractive lil things and there's a mystery bootleg tape we'll be selling on the night to spice things up.

Born & raised in the Northern Territory and now based in Melbourne, Birdz has seen accolades galore following the release of his debut record in 2017, Train of Thought. Combined with a compelling Like a Version performance, the young emcee was launched into the national spotlight through support from community radio, triple j and triple j unearthed for his honest words and raw perspective on prolific social issues. The debut record, awarded Best Independent Hip Hop Album at the 2018 AIR Awards, included singles “This Side” feat. Serina Pech, “Rise” feat. Jimblah, and the politically charged “Black Lives Matter”, which collectively hold over 600k streams on Spotify.

This first taste of Birdz’s forthcoming EP is set to lead the way for many new releases on the horizon from Bad Apples.
