Red Bull Sound Select Announces Their Next Instalment for April Curated By Laneway Festival

This April, Red Bull Sound Select returns with a lineup programmed by Laneway Festival’s Travis Banko. Heading to Parramatta for the first time at the Albion Hotel on April 28, South West Sydney MC B-Wise, New Zealand-via-Zimbabwe’s rising export TAPZ and one-to-watch MANU CROOK$ will come together to celebrate the rise of afro hip-hop in the heart of Sydney’s Greater West.

Red Bull Sound Select is returning to Sydney after a stint of successful shows over the past few months.

It’s going to be quite a different surrounding to their previous digs in the CBD as they head out west to Parramatta, but no less heavy when it comes to the talent on the line-up.

Appearing at the Red Bull Sound Select event this month will be B-Wise, TAPZ and MANU CROOK$.

Headliner B-Wise has come a long way since his debut in 2015. The Nigerian-Australian MC was the opening act for Red Bull Sound Select’s second ever Australian instalment last May with Tuka and Sampa the Great. Since then, he’s reached new heights releasing tracks ’40 Days’ and ‘Lately’, signed to renowned label Elefant Traks, featured on Urthboy’s latest album, and supported the likes of Vince Staples, Schoolboy Q and Freddie Gibbs.

TAPZ is one of New Zealand-via-Zimbabwe’s brightest exports. Since featuring on Hermitude’s colossal crossover hit ‘The Buzz’, TAPZ has amassed millions of plays for solo singles ‘Killa’ and ‘Run Don’t Run.’ Signed collectively to Winterman & Goldstein, Kanye West’s management label G.O.O.D Management and Control Music Group (Phoenix, Hudson Mohawke) – there’s no stopping his bright future.

Rounding out April’s lineup is Ghana raised, Sydney-based emcee MANU CROOK$, whose singles ‘Everyday’ and ‘Blowin Up’ have had support from the likes of The Fader and Beats 1’s Zane Lowe. Alongside recent single ‘Assumptions’ and a forthcoming debut EP, MANU CROOK$ has his sights set on hip-hop’s international scene.
