Robbie-V & The Cosmonauts

Ex frontman of local outfit “The Dialers” Robbie-V is about to unleash his new project “The Cosmonauts” this weekend at the Reefbeats Festival at Cairns showground along side acts such as Thundamentals, Salmonella Dub Soundsystem and Tijuana Cartel.

Robbie-V grew up in the small rainforest town of Ngunbai (or Kuranda, as it is more commonly known) located in Far North Queensland Australia and from a very early age he was constantly subjected to excessively loud music by his “hippy” parents. Fortunately though, they had an extensive array of music and an impeccable taste allowing a developing young mind to soak it up like a thirsty sponge. Every last drop.

As a grasshopper he was blessed to learn the art of Hip Hop, which are the study and teachings of the fundamental creative elements of life. Starting as a Graffer (Painter/Designer), performing as a B-boy (Dancer/Theatre), progressing to a Turntablist/Beatmaker (DJ/Producer) before travelling to Melbourne, Australia to pursue his passion even further.

Although always writing Rhymes (Poetry) and able to spit in a cyper with a skin full, the courage to perform as an MC (Singer/Actor) always seemed to elude him. Until one day that sneaky stage just slipped itself straight up and underneath his feet whilst this frightened deer was temporarily blinded by the spotlight. He instantly found it’s warm glow to be completely calming and soothing, as it seems he had finally returned home.

Robbie-V and The Cosmonauts make their live debut this Saturday the 7th of July at Reefbeats festival at Cairns Showground.
