Event Details

After supporting The Internet the last time she was in Sydney Melbourne's young songstress Kaiit is back to perform with support from New Zealand Hip Hop artist JessB alongside DJ's DIOLA and Nicole Tania to make it an all-female affair.

KAIIT

With honeyed vocals, fierce rhymes and a bold eclectic style to match, 20-year- old KAIIT is alluring audiences to the sweet sound of soul. Hailing from southeast Melbourne, the young songstress has been singing for as long as she can remember. Born in Papua New Guinea, Kaiit bounced back and forth between Australia and her homeland before her family eventually settled down in Melbourne. She grew up listening to alternative music, with her parents embracing the likes of Pink Floyd.  Kaiit is blessed with an enchanting voice that crosses musical boundaries. Her love for jazz and neo-soul is evident in her music, drawing upon Inspiration from her idols Amy Winehouse, Lauryn Hill and the contemporary sounds of Noname Gypsy and SZA. Kaiit's artistic background in both beauty and fashion is apparent in her inimitable style and edgy aesthetic.

JESSB
Quickly making her mark on New Zealand hip-hop, Jess has already racked up over 450,000K streams, collaborated with award-winning legends SWIDT, and secured the first female appearance on David Dallas's '64 bars' - a Red Bull backed project whereby MC's are invited to take the mic and freestyle over a fresh beat. She came in and handled it first take. She's got a vibe, and she's super confident", says Dallas.

JessB has already conquered New Zealand's biggest festival stages, Rhythm & Vines, Northern Bass and Soundsplash and most recently Auckland City Limits. She was also selected to open Stormzy's two NZ shows in 2017. Of Kenyan descent, JessB grew up in Auckland and naturally gravitated towards hip-hop from an early age. Raised by her adoptive parents, hip-hop offered an avenue to explore her identity in a way that felt natural - providing a cultural touchstone as a minority in New Zealand.
