A.B. Original is the collaboration between Briggs, the Album of the Year recipient at the National Indigenous Music Awards 2015, and Trials, the ARIA Award winning producer for Drapht, Illy, Hilltop Hoods, Seth Sentry and The Funkoars, amongst others. A.B. Original was born when the two artists were invited to perform at triple j’s 40 year celebration, Beat The Drum, in January 2015, where they produced a short but powerful set which also included the special performance of “The Hunt”, a collaboration with Gurrummul performed earlier on triple j’s Live At The Wireless. A.B. Collection write songs in the spirit of N.W.A and West Side Connection, while lyrically bringing attention to issues closer to home. Hailing from the Yorta Yorta and Ngarrindjeri tribes respectively, 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 will be released later this year via Hilltop Hoods’ label Golden Era Records and Bad Apples Music, an Indigenous hip-hop label established by Briggs.
