Bio

Hailing from Melbourne’s Western Suburbs, Craigiewave is a refreshing new voice to rise from the city’s underground music scene — proudly wearing his Polynesian heritage, his heart and his individuality on his sleeve.

With roots in hip-hop, Craigiewave has spent the last few years honing a sound that transcends traditional rap tropes, trading them for a variety of global sounds and influences that span across Grime, Garage, House and Drill. 

Craigie uses his music to subvert the social norms that might be used to box in a young Polynesian artist in Australia. Sonically and stylistically Craigie is something of an outlier within his community, documenting his growth as an artist and as an individual through music and touching on a diverse range of topics like family, identity, vulnerability and sexuality.

there's electricity crackling and buzzing throughout the entirety of this track. makes for a track that's impossible to tear your ears away from.

this is like having a coupla logs in the fireplace but not letting it crank to high heat. it's a warm and comforting type of sound but doesn't get too hot. and for a first up offering i'm super keen to hear more.

The tone...the vibe...it's an immaculate feel on this one from Craigiewave. Need more of this good smooth energy in my life.
