HUNGY

HUNGY by Hydrofunk Records

Release date 21st February

Hydrofunk would like to Introduce ‘The boy of many colors that came in the falling rain (which is the meaning and translation of his name) Coedie Ochre Warrah, indigenous rapper, producer, dancer, visual designer/editor and many other things. His tribes are the Yidinji Bar Burrum & Mamu of north QLD Australia.

Born in a place called Koonorigan on Bunjalung (butterfly) country he grew up with many elders teaching him culture dance and art. Since showcasing his culture with them for years he took up Hip hop on the side and the results are a combination of tribal and modern music , where the past and future meet. His totem animals are cassowary and possum.

’HUNGY’- meaning hungry in street slang (and also a form of underground cooking in Maori language funnily enough) is a song about Coedie being a hungry artist and being fed up with being held back by things in life. The chorus has two parts one of which he sings “YAMANI set me free!” Yamani being the rainbow serpent (Aboriginal creator spirit) in his tradition language (Yidinji).

He calls out to his ancestors, spirits and creators to set him free to run a muck and make some movement in the industry,
