About the Line Up
Gabriel ‘DyspOra’ Akon is an award-winning Hip-Hop recording Artist, Sonic Activist, Poet & founder of the playback 808 Kingdom. The nomadic troubadour was born in South Sudan and raised across various locations in East Africa until his family migrated to the South Australian city of Adelaide.
After spending his formative years in a Refugee camp in Kenya, DyspOra saw music as a key tool in breaking down cultural, lingual and racial barriers which led him to begin writing poetry at the age of 12 & had graduated to writing rhymes by the time he was in high school. He began releasing weekly freestyle videos on YouTube in early 2010 and it was during these sporadic sessions with local producers Luke iLL and Meta Beats where he was inspired to create the playback 808 imprint and began recruiting team members and future label mates.
Known for his sonic activism and dynamic lyrical abilities, DyspOra’s musical roots can be traced to various cultural soundscapes. The Playback 808 founder is the current ambassador for the Timpir Foundation which provides education to more than 1400 Children in South Sudan. DyspOra has been featured in publications such as Swampland, VICE, Complex and global advertising agency 72 And Sunny’s book on Modern Australia. His story has been told on ABC news, SBS & Rolling Stone magazine and was recently named the 2017 best male artist at the South Australian music awards after a captivating performance of his single Open Road with Elsy Wameyo. The 25-year-old has performed at major events including Clipsal 500, Listen Out Festival, Root Down Festival, Miss Africa, Groovin The Moo, Scouted festival & Sanaa festival. These performances have allowed him to share the stage with Skepta, Skrillex, Paul Kelly, Hilltop Hoods, Amine, HorrorShow, Seth Sentry, Thundamentals, Funkoars, Kerser, Masego and Man Made Mountain. DyspOra is preparing the release of his long awaited ‘AUSTRALIEN’ project in March 2019.
