Dribbles, a member of the now-defunct ‘Madizm,’ a member of ‘Street Life Descendant’s,’ and a solo Hip Hop Artist has been cleverly creating his own version of modern day satire since he began Emceeing in late 2004.

Dribbles, often known as Big River – undefeated in his time as a battle rapper – blends satire and Hip Hop to deliver with soul, passion and intensity. Once described as “so offensive that it is not offensive,” and also the “Australian version of Ol’ Dirty Bastard.” Dribbles deftly uses his wordplay to intermingle differing styles of satire, embracing the use of irony, sarcasm, wit, parody, juxtaposition, exaggeration, and yet at the same time, speaking from the heart in a way that many can relate to.

Dribbles has released a Vinyl single, a Mixtape, 5 digital releases and 2 albums available on CD – all up that’s over 130 songs released in his career.

Dribbles joined ‘Madizm’ alongside Judz, Mandle, Nikko KS and Planz. The quality and consistency of tracks between Dribbles & Mandle solidified their working relationship and the the duo went on to perform a few small gigs and many collaborative works, including the single “When You See Us” released on vinyl by Mass Mc on DoubleBeef Records. Mandle tragically passed away in 2011 and his death led to the demise of Madizm and left a long lasting impact on Dribbles – which is evident, not only in his music, but also in his personal life and battle with drug addictions.

Dribbles continued with his solo career, with the independant release titled ‘First World Problems’ in 2013 whilst also joining the Western Australian “supergroup” Street Life Descendant’s with members that include Beni B.J.A.H, Beside, Big Moggo, Bitter Belief, Chile Chillz, Complete, Cortex, D-Loc, Dex, Dista, Dynasty, MX Axis, Mr. Grevis, Ness, Relevance, Verdikt and Xzakt. Street Life Descendant’s have performed as support acts for Bone-Thugz-N-Harmony and Cypress Hill.

First World Problems features the single of the same name, as well as the popular hit ‘My Diamonds,’ which has an accompanying video filmed & edited by Rory Highside. My Diamonds was also released on Itunes and Spotify.

In his 10+ year career, Dribbles has collaborated with Andradi, Bamboo MC, Cheap Sober, Chevy Levett, Complete, Damo, Dista, Double D, Filthy Fil, Fluence, Havok, Ideas, Kerser, Kirsty, Mandle, Mike Hunt, Mikey Banks, Okwerdz, Omac, Porsah Laine, Real Deal, Reejay, Stannard, Tavern Slander, Tornts, Web Three, Willis, Wordsmyff and Zhane White.


“It’s brash, it’s rude, it’s politically incorrect and it’s all that’s good about hardcore hip hop. Do not sleep on the future of rugged beats and rhymes”

“Dribbles’ delivery can best be likened to scraping your ears off with a cheese grater. Brutal and abrasive yet imbued with character, his presence on the mic leaves you hanging off each line.”
