Haiku Hands exploded into the music scene with their electronic pop mix of punk, rap and attitude. Emerging from the world of visual art and live performance, their energy is a treat to experience. After working with Urthboy, Lapalux and Hermitude, these women know how to throw a party.

OKENYO's expressive and achingly beautiful melodies invite listeners on a journey through the underworld, a mirror world of reality where personal stories meet ancient mythology. Enigmatic, mysterious and evocative in her lyricism and storytelling, OKENYO emerges from the pack as a uniquely charismatic artist, part of a new generation of powerful women set to make their mark.

Clypso is a Sydney based producer whose sound is a collage of hyperactive beats, grimey basslines and afropunk infused electronica, or as her facebook page describes it, troppo chilli flakes. Influenced by afrobeat and Atari-esque synths, Clypsoblends and blurs tongue in cheek samples with urban laments over jungle beats and shiny synth riffs. It’s happy pill music with a bit of bite.

Primarily driven by African influences, Ayebatonye is not one to stick to any particular genre. Her unique sonic palette prances between disco, 90s house, Detroit techno & anything with a sick drum beat!

One of Sydney’s hip hop MVPs, DJ (and radio presenter at FBi) Mowgli May is a rap-club powerhouse obsessed with uncovering forward-looking pearlers from Australia and beyond.
