ZVNE is a 22-year-old hip-hop artist based in Perth, Australia. Writing and recording since the age of 17, he draws on personal experiences, creating a sound both relatable yet unconventional.
It’s a mixture of heavy bass lines, soft melody and clean vocals. It’s about coming to the realization that you’re truly on your own, and is an accolade to anyone who has ever had to make the choice to leave a certain person, situation or lifestyle in order to grow.

Zsa Zsa LaFine - She Hot     Electronic, House, Hip Hop, Dance 21/10/2016
Proper party music for proper party queens and geniuses. Bass that belongs on Oxford St at 4am, spilling onto sidewalks, holding back boozy barf to make out with your bestie.
New single from Sydney's Zsa Zsa LaFine, 'She Hot' is the happiest diss track imaginable. It's part 90s house anthem, part devotional modern day Tumblr hip hop with a beat produced by rapper/producer Simo Soo. This is an empowering sugar rush wake up.
