Bio

SUPEREGO is a collective of producers, rappers, singers and multi-instrumentalists out of Fremantle, WA, who want to push the boundaries of hip-hop in Australia. After transitioning from act POW Negro in 2018, their sound has taken on a new direction. The 5 piece deliver experimental, electronically influenced, drum driven tracks with thoughtful, often aggressive bars and glitchy sax lines. Having shared stages with the likes of MIdnight Oil, Blackalicious, Remi, Sampa The Great, as well as having collaborated with imbi the girl on their track ‘i used to’, SUPEREGO is ready to introduce their unique blend of sounds and influences.

Brought together through their love of hip-hop production and unique live music, SUPEREGO have quickly gained a reputation around Australia for their energetic and enigmatic live show. SUPEREGO speak to the black experience in a predominantly white Australia, as well as the unique social and individual challenges we face in the modern world. SUPEREGO draw upon an array of influences from the US underground hip-hop scene, to UK experimental pop.

Their latest offering 'Caller ID' speaks to the inner turmoil we face when dealing with feelings of inadequacy, helplessness and self loathing; the result of the differences in the masks we wear to hide these feelings, so as not to burden those around us, and our own internal grief.

For the first time, we introduce the vocals of Toby Batchelor to a SUPEREGO recording. Bars are handled by Lachlan Dymond, one of two MCs in the group.
