Longer bio: 

Combat Wombat are a political hip-hop crew based in Melbourne, Australia. Armed only with samplers, mics and turntables, powered by solar energy and an uncompromising belief in Truth over Spin, Combat Wombat delve into issues of national identity, indigenous rights, the government’s treatment of refugees and alternative energy, bringing reports from the front line of resistance.

Renowned for blasting raw political fire in these unsettling times, MC Elf Tranzporter, MC Izzy Brown, producer Monkey Marc and DJ Wasabi will take you on an unforgettable ride of truth and rights, mixed with dub-heavy bass and boom bap style hip hop beats.

Combat Wombat’s music is charged with a sense of urgency and rawness from their frontline activism and community engagement. Combat Wombat have travelled and toured across Australia, spearheading a wide range of political and environmental causes with their music, sound systems and political events.

Combat Wombat’s third album, Just Across The Border (2017 Pumpkin Records), is a hip hop album with a revolutionary attitude. Paying equal homage to the golden era of hip hop and sound system dub reggae, it was recorded and produced in Monkey Marc’s solar-powered studio in Melbourne, Australia. From bass-heavy speaker-blasting hip hop to cinematic musical epilogues and raw sonic beauty, Just Across The Border is truth-exposing, riot-inspiring music to tear down borders and break down the walls of racism and injustice we live under.
