A.B. Original

Profile:
A.B. Original is the collaboration between Briggs (2) (Album of the Year recipient at the National Indigenous Music Awards 2015) and Trials, ARIA Award winning producer for Drapht, Illy (4), Hilltop Hoods, Seth Sentry and The Funkoars among others.

A.B. Original was born when the two artists were invited to perform at triple j’s 40 year celebration, Beat The Drum, in January 2015. They produced a short but powerful set which also included the special performance of 'The Hunt’, a collaboration with Gurrumul Yunupingu performed earlier on triple j’s live at the wireless.

They write songs in the spirit of N.W.A. and Westside Connection, while lyrically bringing attention to issues closer to home. Respectively coming from the Yorta Yorta and Ngarrindjeri tribes, Briggs and Trials are socially conscious outspoken Indigenous artists. They bring a new voice to Australian hip hop as A.B. Original.
