Named Rolling Stone’s “25 Under 25,” within just one year, Rich Brian has gone from ‘the kid with the pink polo shirt and a fanny pack’ to a respected artist and rising international star. In February this year he released his highly-anticipated debut project, “Amen.” The work chronicles his humble beginnings as a homeschooled teenager from Jakarta, Indonesia, to his newfound role as a global icon. At only age 18, Brian’s achievements include a debut on The Late Late Show with James Corden, recording with Pharrell, directing his own music videos, selling out shows throughout the U.S., Europe and Asia and teaching himself English of which he’s spoken fluently for the past five years.

Joining Brian is “the internet’s favourite R&B princess” (Noisey) and 88rising label mate, 19-year-old Indonesian R&B artist NIKI. Slamming the door on the conventions of teen-pop stardom, NIKI is the epitome of self-reliant artistry: writing, recording and producing her own music, amassing millions of streams and praise along the way. A mesmeric blend of silky production and cathartic lyrics, NIKI’s emotionally-rich music draws inspiration from both her experiences between Jakarta and the U.S., along with the 90s R&B she grew up with on YouTube.

Don Krez is one of the most sought-after and influential DJ/Producers emerging in hip-hop’s new underground scene. As a DJ, Don Krez has played stages all over the world, rocking crowds of of thousands. As a producer, he’s caught the ears of underground heavy-hitters like Pouya, Smokepurpp, Wifisfuneral, Chris Travis, Xavier Wulf and more. “Don Krez is responsible for the uprising of the South Florida music culture.” (Elevator Mag)

For anyone unfamiliar, now is the time to catch Rich Brian, an artist quoted to have a “mainstream potential [which] is unprecedented,” (Vulture) and one who “deserves his triumphs to date” (Pitchfork).
