Big Village is an independent record label representing the new wave of Sydney’s finest Hip Hop artists. Tired of jostling for recognition as individual groups, Big Village artists came together to forge a joint identity and carve out new opportunities on their own terms. To celebrate the label’s formation, they will be throwing a massive launch party at the Sandringham Hotel on Saturday August 7th.
Performing on the night will be the full Big Village stable, consisting of Daily Meds, Loose Change, True Vibenation, Tuka (Thundamentals), DJ Max Gosford, DJ Morgs and hosted by Jeswon. The label was founded by the artists it represents and members of all the groups contribute their expertise to the running of the organisation. With True Vibenation, Loose Change and Daily Meds already having released projects under the Big Village banner, 2010 will continue to see more high quality releases from the BV stable including a Big Village mixtape and debut solo albums from Tuka (Thundamentals) and Ellesquire (Loose Change).
The night will be presented by Freshly Squeezed, Newtown’s monthly dose of quality live hip hop entertainment. Now in its fourth month at the recently renovated Sandringham Hotel, the night is building a reputation as a new home for the Sydney hip hop community and has been host to a slew of exciting NSW and interstate acts and enthusiastic and diverse crowds.
