Yuin MC and esteemed Australian rapper Nooky shares his debut EP Junction Court, out on October 11 via Bad Apples Music. The 7-track journey stems from moments of heartache and loss to the personal trials and tribulations that have followed, delivered through the lens of his political eye, complex wordplay and rich Indigenous pride.
Paying tribute to his hometown stomping ground by name, Junction Court brings to light the frustration, anger and helplessness faced at a time of grievous loss, meanwhile drawing attention to the everyday battles faced by fellow First Nations People. Nooky claws for survival amid all-consuming struggles from past and present, grappling with ongoing social, political and personal turmoil to deliver a snapshot of life in its rawest form through his most refined sound and honest rhymes yet. Balancing between heated energy and softer moments, the series of tracks leave no stone unturned as he delves into his own introspection while facing paradoxes between feeling incomplete and belonging to a broader community binded in heritage.
Raiza Biza – Bygones Album
A hypnotic culmination of hundreds of hard drive demos, eclectic musical inspiration and collaboration, enter Bygones – a record striking the balance between the intricacies of electronic production and at times, melodic half-sung poetry, delivered with raw intensity.
The nine track record features cameo appearances from Sudanese-American rapper/producer extraordinaire Oddisee, Australia’s REMI and B Wise along with AmmoNation collaborators Blaze the Emperor, Embher, VULC, and more.
Speaking with a sense of urgency in his flowing baritone voice, Biza’s work has always carried a socially conscious heart, backed up by honest storytelling and captivating jazz/soul infused production as the aura to his words. His new material follows a new sound arch, and with those changes comes a newly found freedom.
