Bio

Milwaukee Banks have been redefining the sound of hip-hop in Australia since their inception. With production more in line with Australia’s rising underground of inventive electronica talent, Milwaukee Banks eschew the Australian hip-hop tradition, bringing dynamic atmosphere through forward-thinking beats and exploring deep introspection with incisive poetic flair. They’ve played attention–garnering sets at Laneway Festival and Golden Plains, and supported the likes of Raury and Big K.R.I.T.

“Australian hip-hop production has come a long way from chipmunk samples and generic beats, but rarely has it sounded like this.” The Guardian

Into this. Dyl's always been a well-loved rapper on Unearthed and Edo's production as Flight Tonight showed heaps of promise. I knew the two of them teaming up together for this hazy thumper would be good but, yeah, it's REAL good.
