As revealed at BigSound last week, we are psyched to have A.B. ORIGINAL join the Laneway fam as performing artists and the festival MC’s. Uncompromising in their mission, the duo make powerful, trunk-rattling hip-hop in the spirit of U.S. heavyweights N.W.A. Made up of Briggs (2015’s NIMA Album of the Year recipient) and Trials (ARIA Award winning producer), two friends who are hell bent on flipping the game on its head and speaking up about the issues that affect Indigenous artists in Australia. Their forthcoming debut album Reclaim Australia promises to shake up the establishment and amplify the duo’s message. Take a listen to the explosive single ‘January 26th’: there’s just no stopping these two.
