So adorable you might just want to keep her in your pocket, everybody please welcome Tkay Maidza! The Adelaidean hip-hop princess filling your bedroom/dancefloor/life with tasty rap burgers with a side of BANGERZZZ.
You would have heard the track Brontosaurus which is scoring some super sweet airplay on Triple J – coming in at #148 in the Hottest list- as well as attention from all the right industry peeps (including Alex from Bad//Dreems – interview coming soon!). But it’s not all she has to offer, with more rap/rave double whammy collaborations with fellow Adelaidean Badd Cop for Handle My Ego which has just the right amount of ‘tude.
After just finishing her Brontosaurus tour (with a show that landed on her 18th birthday, BLESS!) Tkay is sure to be set for bigger and better things in 2014 including joining the cool kids of Australian EDM* on the Nina Las Vegas Presents tour. Between what one can only imagine is time spared fighting off label offers, Tkay is working on her EP and the release of her Brontosaurus film clip.
If you missed her in Melbourne, you can still catch her on the Brisbane, Sydney and Adelaide legs of Nina Las Vegas Presents tour (check the dates here) as well as UniSA’s Gear Up festival with the likes of Miami Horror, San Cisco, Deep Sea Arcade and Pond.
P.S. I wrote this at around 4:30am. Despite the un-godly hour, listening to Brontosaurus again has almost amped me up enough to hit the town. Put it on your pre-drinks playlist kids.
