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,

Kobie Dee – Still Standing feat. Liyah Knight

Since 2018, the 22-year-old MC has captured audiences across Australia with his effortless flows, precise delivery, and an uncanny knack for storytelling that connects deeply with his listeners. In his short time on the scene, with just a couple of tracks released and a handful of freestyle videos floating around, Kobie has quickly found a loyal following. His first official singles “Right Now” and “This Life” captured the attention of fans and industry heavyweights alike, acclaim which was soon amplified when he stepped into the booth for triple j’s Bars Of Steel, which has since clocked 870k views across platforms and saw a surge of support from the industry and fans alike. Last year’s live performance alongside fellow label mates at the Vivid festival Bad Apples House Party also cemented his status as one of the most important voices in Australian hip-hop.

As an artist, Kobie Dee is deeply engaged with his community through live performance and youth mentoring programs, where his passion for his culture and people is inspiring new generations. Tune in for what’s in store for this young, groundbreaking artist in 2020.

About this track…

Kobie Dee’s latest offering is a heartfelt and profoundly moving track about the hard-hitting topics of the Stolen Generation and challenges experienced by Aboriginal people. The song was produced by Accent Beats and features the rising singer/songwriter Liyah Knight, whose tender vocals play the perfect counterpart to the rawness of Kobie’s lyrics.
