Australian Hip-Hop Artist Hau Joins FMG

Australian Hip-Hop Artist Hau Joins FMG

Frequency Media Group are pleased to announce Hau Latukefu has signed with the label.

With 20 years of writing and performing under his belt (best known as the front man for ARIA award-winning duo, Koolism), Hau first ventured into solo territory with the release of his mixtape, Football, Feasts & Funerals, with new music due out later this year.

In 2008, Hau took the reigns as presenter and producer for the Hip Hop Show on Australia’s leading youth network, triple j – but that’s not the only place you would have heard him taking over the airwaves, with a huge list of guest vocals with a number of notable artists.

Those spots include guest vocals for fellow Australian legends including The Hilltop Hoods, Urthboy and Hermitude, new wave of artists such as Remi, Briggs and Mr Hill & Rahjconkas. and internationals such as UK pioneer Rodney P, US wordsmithCasual and more recently, Oddisee.

Taking up residence with Frequency Media Group, Hau will again be keeping good company as he joins one of the Pacific’s most domineering urban labels which has been home to a huge number of Kiwi all-stars including David Dallas, Savage,Aaradhna and P-Money.

Hau’s Football, Feasts & Funerals mixtape is available for free download from bandcamp here and check out the video for single ‘So Deep’ here.

Australian fans can also catch him performing with fellow Aussie rapper Briggs on his nationwide tour. Full tour details, including ticketing, can be found here.
