Formidable. Enigmatic. Genre-defying. Fragile. Ballsy. Ambiguous. Raw. Mojo Juju has been called many things and yet she is forever hard to define. By her own explanation, Juju has never felt comfortable with being categorised and is increasingly deliberate in avoiding labels and defying genres. As a result, it is only in experiencing her live shows that one can begin to understand her full breadth.

Joelistics is a rapper, writer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer and advocate for diversity. He founded alt rap group TZU in 2004 and released 4 albums, then went on to release two solo albums with Sydney label Elefant Traks.
