Founder - Prolific Studio
“I’ve started Prolific Studio so I can assist in nourishing the amazing talent Melbourne youth have to offer musically.
The 9 towers lockdown was a devastating time for our community. Witnessing the injustice and inhuman way our people were treated. This has brought so much anxiety within our community.
When MAV gave me the opportunity to curate and produce an EP compilation for the Shelter 2 project, it was a great honour to be able to work with a group of talented and resilient young people who experienced the effects of this lockdown.
Especially as a past Flemington housing estate resident, this project was very close to my heart.
We have a long way to go to repair the damage made. However I’m a true believer that art can open dialogue and begin the healing that we all need.”

Trapped Inside is a hip-hop/rap song aimed at exposing the effects that the covid-19 lockdowns have had on the community – “from the east to the west, from the north to the south”.

The song, How we feel, came from a collective expressionist point of view from my peers and community’s experiences during last years harsh lockdown of the housing estates in Flemington and North Melbourne.

Barricaded In is a spoken word piece I wrote describing the treatment of the residents of the 9 towers lockdown.

When I heard that the Shelter 2 project is collaborating with local creatives. I decided to submit the beat I made during the lockdown.
