Bio

A shift in direction and a brand new project, Sydney’s most ambitious beat maker Waza returns with a single “Rocks and Bones”, featuring a dreamy new talent and foreshadowing a spectacular upcoming LP release.

2015 saw ‘The Art and Techniques Sessions’ come to light, an experimental story told through music in three parts. Such an aspiring project naturally attracted an impressive musical rap sheet, drawing love from all across the nation’s airwaves, with adds and appearances on triple j’s Breakfast Showand The Hip Hop Show, FBi, 2SER, 3RRR and Unearthed.

Shedding his hip-hop roots, “Rocks and Bones” sees Waza getting back to something a little more straight up sonic, but no less sensory. Placing emphasis on synth and melody the song is a treasure trove of lush production, polyrhythmic melodies and a massive beat that feels like it’s swinging from a pendulum, the cherry on top comes in the lavish vocals of Brisbane songstress Aquila Young. “Rocks and Bones” is just a taste of Waza’s upcoming LP ‘Crooked Jaw’ slated for release in 2016.
