Bora Veli…It's Aussie Hip-Hop for people that don't like Aussie Hip-Hop.

Following in the footsteps of hip-hop acts with an indie sensibility, Bora Veli brings geek chic beats to the scene. Banging drum patterns, and introspective rhymes combine to present a refreshing standpoint. Virtual synth driven leads and chopped-up glitchy samples hint at a future with digital nostalgia. Inspiration was drawn from Gorillaz, Das Racist, The Cool Kids and M.I.A.

After studying the careers of Hip-Hop's greats, Bora identifies most with producers that also rap, i.e. Pharrell Williams, RZA and Kanye West. The beats come first and foremost. As an example, Bora spent four days straight working on the Kick sound used on the track 'Race' to make sure it knocked.

Bora’s debut album comes in the form of "Connecting", which is being offered as a free download to fans. The 13-track LP features verses by up-and-comers gorillajunk and The Debauchery. It was self produced and mixed by Bora with Karen Thompson (Calvin Harris, The Bumblebeez) mastering the tracks at The Exchange in London.

On this album, Bora's perspective is of a creative intellectual living on the superficial Gold Coast. The tracks 'Mermaid Beach' and 'Gold Coast People' speak of being a social outcast, while taking a swing at the mainstream egocentric monoculture of the city. The track 'Dream Music Video' aims to show that Australian Rappers can express their ambitions without boasting, whilst 'Ferrari Versace' uses boasting to test the artistic understanding of the listener.
