Hip-Hop’s Johnny (From the Burbs) beats back with ‘Bradenton’

Australian alternative hip-hop artist and producer, Johnny (From the Burbs) [Johnny Guagliardo] is back with his 2018 sophomore mixtape, 'Bradenton'.

This fresh release is an intimate and eclectic collection of tunes that explores a more lyrically-focused, production-driven and matured Johnny. Spanning just over 14 minutes of 5 self-produced tracks, Bradenton is highlighted by aggressive and political songs that tackle shared issues on personal and international scales. From the vicious anthem 'Bastard' that reflects on self-worth and personal doubt, to the closing track 'Antidote // Bradenton' which delves into the on-going gun control debate in the US; the Western Sydney local begins to prove his own straight from the get-go on this mixtape.

With the release of Bradenton, JFTB shows the different levels of conflict the youth of Australia is passionate about. Guagliardo demonstrates that even the smallest voice from the Western suburbs of Sydney has something important to say.

Working with the likes of artists such as TIMBA (featured artist on 'Winter'), Blaine Stranger (mixing and mastering) and Tom Elliot (providing add. production and vocals on 'Bastard'), Bradenton is going to show that Johnny (From the Burbs) does not necessarily follow what everybody else may be doing, but is instead more than content with writing, producing and recording music that attempts to bring something new to an ever-expanding genre.

Guagliardo has been described as "the most chiller MC in Sydney" (HAPPY MAG), a welcoming remark made towards JFTB's unique alternative hip-hop 8-track EP.

2017’s mixtape saw Guagliardo working with some of Sydney's finest talent, with two tracks produced by Northern Beaches local 'Chay Ell' as well as additional production credits from the likes of Tom Elliot (of Korky Buchek), who has returned to work on JFTB's upcoming release.

2018 is set to be a banner year for Johnny (From The Burbs), with Guagliardo blessing his cult following with another string of eclectic tunes. Brace yourself for BRADENTON.
