A.B. Original


'For hip hop fans, Reclaim Australia is a masterclass in how to do it by two of the country’s best.' THE MUSIC

'Briggs and Trials set the room on fire.' THE MUSIC


The collaboration between Briggs, the Yorta Yorta rapper, writer, Black Comedy star and The Weekly with Charlie Pickering regular, and Trials, the Ngarrindjeri MC and producer, better known as A.B. Original, is one of the biggest names in Aussie music today. This is the Aboriginal Australian experience set to a heavy hip hop groove, undiluted and unapologetic and the award-winning crew behind it is Festival bound. 

Inspired by Nineties West Coast gangster rap yet with a sound all of its own covering dispossession, black deaths in custody, racial profiling and racism, A.B. Original’s debut album, Reclaim Australia, was awarded the prestigious 2017 Australian Music Prize.

Together this hip hop duo has taken the airwaves by storm with their outspoken, uncompromising rhymes delivering socially conscious messages. Now the guys are bringing their fiery live show to the Top End. Expect music that demands a response.
