JUNOR

As founder and curator of hip-hop media platform AUD’$ he has helped break several notable Australian acts – the first radio DJ to ever play The Kid Laroi, hand selecting Kwame to join him as a co-headliner for his debut national tour and giving an unsigned Sophiegrophy a live cypher performance slot early in her career. This lead to a takeover of the Hip-Hop Show on Triple J and AUD’$ being proclaimed by host Hau Latukefu as the “go-to spot covering radio, visuals and online content.” Having now twice co-hosted the nation’s premiere hip-hop showcase at BIGSOUND, working regularly with international names including Rae Sremmurd, Madeintyo and Iggy Azalea, and as official curators of “The New Australia” playlist with Apple Music, AUD’$ position as a key emerging influencer in the global hip-hop scene is evident.

Suldusk

Suldusk began as Emily Highfield’s one woman project, weaving acoustic tones of Dark folk with elements of Post Rock and Atmospheric Black Metal. Debut album Lunar Falls creates a powerful panoramic of shimmering guitars, haunting melodies and atmospheric density. The album’s undercurrent theme is about living on the margins and the quest for self identity. Nature provides a source of refuge and guidance throughout this quest.
