It’s been a crazy ride since Sydney hip hop/producer/horn trio True Vibenation put out their second album ‘ON’ 1-year ago. The album was named as the Triple J Hip Hop Show’s ‘Album of the Week’ and they hit the touring circuit hard, selling out their Sydney launch at Newtown Social Club and playing to packed venues across Australia.
Word quickly spread and it wasn’t long before they were on the plane to Africa for their first international tour, playing in front of thousands with main stage festival appearances and selling our their first international headline show in Mozambique.

On their return to Australia they decided to keep the party going with their brand of electronic beats, live horns and deft lyrics for a show that leave every ounce of energy onstage and the audience grinning from ear to ear.

Made up of twins * VULI* and Moody and childhood friend Klue, the inner-west Sydney trio have developed a strong following thanks to a live show which revels in making you dance in a semi ʻspecialʼ, unselfconscious way and songs that combine infectious hooks and razor sharp raps with roaring horns and genre-bending electronic beats. They even have a self- made instrument that literally turns audience members into human drum machines.

With hundreds of shows under their belt, festival slots at Sydney Festival, Peats Ridge, Future Music, Secret Garden, Subsonic, Woodford and Changing Lanes as well as support slots with Jurassic 5, Chali 2na, Dead Prez, Foreign Beggars, DJ Kentaro, Horrorshow and Thundamentals plus a new record in the works True Vibenation’s fan base is only set to keep growing as they spread their vibes to the rest of the world.

The Sydney lords at it again! Listening now you can almost hear the cries of "heaps good" at a TVN gig being drowned out by busy footwork.

Effortless in every sense. As always with the TV boys, there's a unique blend of sounds that guarantee to make you feel good.

A tinkering droplet in the production, and that controlled energy in the vocals. You guys hold my attention the whole way through with this damn clever jam.
