Bio

The monster made by Electrik lemonade. since joining the electrified funk hip hop group in 2012 Barney has gone from a boiler making gutter spitting fire dragon to a well established MC, Singer, Guitarist and scrote yodeller. Playing festivals and music venues from All over Australia his on stage presence and energy is one thing to look out for, just like a monkey picked from the jungle this guy can make you swing, bounce, and get you throwing all of your shit his way.

With heavy influences from the likes of his baritone brethren Chali 2na, blues brother Ray Charles, and freethinker Horrorshow, Barney Trub's sound is moulded into a melodic rap style that will keep your head nodding like a Dagwood dog, and with hooks that could silence Connor Mcgregor...well, who could argue?

Mix this with the stylistic beats of Funky G, the top hatted puppeteer and you have a fresh sound that'd make you cut the top knot of your man bun off quicker than the first snare hit.

Give this fresh, smart ass, monkey loving truth spitter a listen and be the judge for yourself.

Digging this tune - the crusty drum loop, the keys, the vocal sample, the groove. If I needed to compare it to anything, think like Tuka meets, say, Daniel Merriweather.

I can still feel the goosebumps running down my arms and back that these deep and searching rhymes sent to me. Powerful yet subtle, and brimming with sensitivity, this verbal portrait's prowess is amplified by the simple but fitting music. Excellent track if I've ever heard one.
