• Baro 528x476



Hailing from Melbourne, 18-year old rapper BARO is the face of the new wave of Australian hip-hop artists. Part of the crew 90’s RD, a local collective that are intent on turning the local scene on its head, his interests extend to clothing, art and film but it’s his authentic approach to songwriting that is attracting attention. He recently subbed in for Vince Staples at Flume’s closing Splendour in the Grass set and has drawn comparisons to hip-hop frontrunners like Earl Sweatshirt and Joey Bada$$ as well as King Krule. In 2015 Baro shared his debut EP 17/18 - it’s mature and refined as hell. With an ambition that knows no bounds, the sky’s the limit for Baro. [Melbourne only]
