Playlist : Land Back

Mon 2 November

An hour of empowering bangers from hip-hop to Afro-funk, that reinforces the party as its own form of protest.

Being a voice for change isn’t always a choice. For many people, the personal is political; and communicating that experience is the only way to come up for air.

This mix from RISING music producers Hayley Percy and Paul Gorrie finds empowerment in celebration. There are important messages behind the music for sure, but it’s also just a bass-heavy mix stacked with bangers, that reinforces the party as its own site of protest.

There’s Malyangapa, Barkindji rapper Barkaa’s hilariously brutal takedown of white privilege; Mo’Ju’s monolithic, righteous, ‘Native Tongue’; downbeat meditations from new-era Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander rappers Water Streets; skittering jazz-hop from Noname; and Afro-funk, from the inimitable Fela Kuti and Roy Ayres.

Turn it up.
