RaRa are a hip-hop group hailing from the skies of Melbourne. Formed in early 2011, RaRa are four relatively psychotic dudes (from the broader RaRaKIN collective) who have blended their freaky energies together to usher in a sound fresher than milk in the udder. Plates, Naetra, KL and River Deep are hip-hop aficionados with a punk-break-shit-mentality. Their live sets around Australia have been spastic and funky, bizarre and energetic, always inclusive of the sporadic, exclusive of mundaneness. Vicious rhymes, deafening passion and the ability to turn a squirming, chin stroking room into a whitewash of bodies getting thrown against each other like a riptide; they only fear quietness and attack introvertedness as does a hyena’s clitorus. RaRa are a predator on the scene of Australian hip-hop that has paid a little too much lip-service to sample based hip-pop. Less of a breath of fresh air and more of a spike bat to the balls for a scene bogged down in creamy, sugary vocals. RaRa are exemplary of the knowledge that hip-hop ought to be raw, it's supposed to be in your face and it's supposed to challenge. Their first release, the RaRaEP has arrived to remind everyone that rap music does not belong on Light FM. Watch out for the Mixtape!
