Widely regarded as a figure at the forefront of the next generation of Australian Hip-Hop; Juñor is one of the hardest working creatives in the country. Juñor is actively writing, recording, touring & releasing around the country as a vocalist, producer, engineer, DJ, & radio host.
It’s been a rapid ascension for Juñor since bursting onto the scene in 2015. Following his independent EP ‘Fluorescent Connections’ debuting at Number 6 on the Australian iTunes Hip-Hop Charts, the dreadlocked emcee has been credited with pioneering psychedelic hip-hop locally, and has accrued a gig resume that includes shows with Brother Ali, Tuka, Tash Sultana, Midas.Gold and Alex Lahey.
Since that eye-catching debut, Juñor has gone on to rack up tens of thousands of plays via his 2-part ‘Free Mined’ mixtape series, endorsed by both Spotify and Triple J Unearthed, and perform at major events including Beyond The Valley, NYE On The Hill, Rabbit Hole Festival and Federation Square Summer Series.
2017 promises to be a breakout year for the Melbourne based talent whose new single and first international collaboration ‘Top Flight’ has quickly received acclaim across the music landscape. Named ‘Single of The Day’ by the AU Review, the release featuring Los Angeles’ based emcee Mann and produced by Chance The Rapper collaborator Nate Fox, has found itself played on Triple J, FBI Radio and Triple J Unearthed as well as being selected in the global ‘Best Of The Week’ playlist by Apple Music alongside names including Selena Gomez and Travis Scott.
Following the release, described by Pilerats as “The laidback stoner-rap anthem Australia has been missing… it’s wavy rap done to perfection,” Juñor took Top Flight on the road, linking up with fellow rising star Kwame for the ‘First Class Tour’ – 3 dates in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney throughout June to packed houses.
When not performing in his own right, Juñor is regarded as one of the country’s premiere Hip-Hop DJs, touring regularly with Ivan Ooze as well as playing club sets across the country. Previous slots include on the Wu-Tang Clan Australian Tour, at BIGSOUND on the much publicised ‘The New Wave’ Hip-Hop Showcase, at Rolling Stone Live Lodge for ‘The Future Is Now’, and at Melbourne Music Week.
Since launching in October 2016, Juñor has been host and founder of Australia’s premier independent hip-hop media platform AUD’$. The fresh start-up has exploded in popularity reaching approximately 100,000 people online every week, and has been endorsed throughout the industry – most notably from national broadcaster Triple J where Juñor hosted an AUD’$ takeover episode of the Triple J Hip-Hop Show in June showcasing the latest emerging urban talent from across the country. On the third Sunday of every month, Juñor hosts his own curated show on TRANSMT.TV titled ‘Sesh with Juñor’ where he displays his his broad tastemaking appeal.
