Mildura-Swan Hill, NSW
Mildura locals WZRDKID are the winners of our One Night Stand competition for 2014. The duo will be taking their experimental hip hop to the masses at One Night Stand in Mildura on Saturday May 17.
Tell us about your music. How did you develop your sound?
So our music is basically what we would call experimental hip hop. We first begun working on music together with the intention of just trying to make something we would want to hear. Developing our sound was a natural process. Just basically jamming out and coming up with something we liked.
What’s your greatest source of inspiration for making music?
Tough one. Our inspiration comes from all sorts of different places and also we have individual influences. Some artist we like are Pink Floyd, Madlib, Ratking, Kanye West.
You’re the winner of our One Night Stand competition. What are you most looking forward to about playing the event in Mildura?
The whole thing! A chance to have our music heard by so many people who would have no idea who we are, and a chance to meet the other bands!
What can One Night Stand punters expect from the WZRDKID live show?
We've been working really hard on our live show. We are playing with a live band! So that will be tight
