True Vibenation are refreshing, talented, innovative and fiercely independent.
With each member playing horns as well as handling writing and production duties, the trio signals a new generation of hip hop artists who pay homage to the sharp lyricism of the past but enlist an updated production aesthetic combining synths, warm samples and live instruments with banging 808 drums and unique rhythms.
Made up of twins Verbaleyes and Native Wit and childhood friend Klue, the trio hailing from Sydney?s inner-west, has developed a solid reputation for an electric live show and sound which is just as comfortable alongside a live band as it is in an electronic setting.
“The guys bring a markedly different approach to hip hop than the hooky, radio-friendly Oz-hop that’s been on your airwaves lately. Their compositions range from concious, soulful hip hop to post-Brainfeeder type bass music, to afro-funk/hip hop fusions that bring the brass skills in to play, all rolled up with high IQ and a big dose of creative fun. True Vibe have built solid foundations.”
