A.B. Original - January 26

A.B. Original - January 26
A.B. Original is the collaboration between Briggs (Album of the Year recipient at the National Indigenous Music Awards 2015) and Trials (ARIA Award winning producer for Drapht, Illy, Hilltop Hoods, Seth Sentry and The Funkoars among others).

A.B. Original have just released their second single ‘JANUARY 26’ which features vocals by Dan Sultan. and is lifted from their forthcoming debut album ‘Reclaim Australia’

Since forming this project at triple j’s Beat The Drum event, A.B. Original began writing songs in the spirit of N.W.A and West Side Connection, while lyrically bringing attention to issues closer to home. Respectively coming from the Yorta Yorta and Ngarrindjeri tribes, long time friends, Briggs and Trials, are socially conscious outspoken Indigenous artists. They bring a new voice to Australian hip hop as A.B. Original.

Their debut album, titled ‘Reclaim Australia’, will be released later this year via Hilltop Hoods’ label Golden Era Records and Briggs’ new Indigenous hip hop label Bad Apples Music.
