Baro is creating some of the smoothest hip hop in Australia right now.
Having caught the ear of triple j presenters with his early work Word Smoother, his latest mixtape Howgoodisgood has caused quite a ripple, with many shocked at the maturity, complexity and sophistication of the 17 year olds’ viewpoint and slinky beats. Early spins on triple j have followed. Drawn from an Odd Future, Chance the Rapper, MF Doom kind of world, Baro’s tunes also hark back to the sound of A Tribe Called Quest – they come off like modern classics.
Fresh from supports with Allday, Coin Banks and Citizen Kay, Baro is one of the most promising MC/vocalist/producer-type artists going around.
