Presented by Queensland Poetry Festival

Hit the floor with two of this nation’s most hard-hitting underground hip-hop duos. Morganics & MC Wire are joined at the mic by Ezekiel Ox with DJ Marze to bring you words from the city and beats direct from the streets of Sydney and Melbourne.

Morgan Morganics Lewis is an award winning Hip Hop artist, director and community worker.

He is the 2016 Freestyle Rap Games Champion of Melbourne and his Hip Hop feature film, Survival Tactics and album For My Friends and My Enemies are out now.

Wire MC an MC and guitarist, is a Gumbayngirri descendant hailing from Bowraville, NSW. As well as performing at venues and festivals around the country, including Homebake, WOMadeliade, Yabun and the Dreaming Festival, Wire MC travels to remote communities around Australia conducting hip hop workshops for young Indigenous people.

Ezekiel Ox & DJ Marze are a double act that can go all night and still have time for coffee in the morning. After residencies at The Espy and Laundry in Melbourne, as well as Narana Fest with Archie Roach in Geelong, they headed up to Woodford last summer wowing audiences.

Ox has previously written and performed his solo spoken word shows RANT! and BLOWTORCH across Australia, as well as being the pulsating front man of Mammal, Full Scale, The Nerve and Over-Reactor. Marze is resident DJ for Seeks, Birdz, Philly and others, and casually spins for Briggs and the crew.

A night big on freestyle, poliics and dancing, come get some danger from the tongue and the needle.
