Bio

imbi is an experience. Through intention, authentic expression and musical magick imbi transfers tantalising and tangible energies to audiences around the world. imbi uses fluid lyricism, poetry, harmony and the raw power of their voice to share vulnerable feelings and foster intimate moments with every individual they perform for/share space with. Having performed for audiences across so-called ‘australia’ and Aotearoa (N.Z.) imbi has left many strong impressions, continuing to expand their practice of performance and push the limits of crowd engagement/intimacy every time they sing.

Slim Set are a rapper-producer duo hailing from Western Sydney. They mangle electronic and rap sonics into a hybrid sound that’s unique in the Australian music landscape. Slim Set’s 2020 included a peak time set at Golden Plains, where they shared a stage with huge names like The Pixies, Sampa The Great and Hot Chip. They also took part in Conscious 2020, a music program run by Campbelltown Arts Centre, alongside A-Girl, Spvrrow and T-Breezy. They burst onto the Australian rap landscape in 2018 with ‘Cooked’ and ‘Lazy’, which ended 2018 as the #1 and #2 most played songs on FBi Radio. Those singles saw them nominated for three FBi SMAC awards and support international acts including The Streets, Flohio, AJ Tracey and Sir Spyro.

Oi this is fire! Atro has smashed the production, imbi's vocals are taking me higher + Kal bringing the hype. Can't wait for more of this!

"Prickly shit, like two sides of velcro it sticks" - true on all accounts. Slim Setta and Imbi are a match made in hell of this drum and bass goodness
