Podcast: ‘Talking Tunes’ With Ladi6

The latest episode of Talking Tunes features Ladi6, a talented rapper and singer from New Zealand who has stories about everything from studio battles to working motherhood to her own development over time.

Welcome, welcome, one and all, to Talking Tunes: a lively podcast brought to you by the crew at Girls Are Awesome and the amazing producer and songwriter, Vackle. In these cozy chats, you will hear various up-and-coming to well-established artists get down to the nitty gritty on their professional careers as musicians, their IRL work lives as well as in-depth analysis of one particular song. This podcast is perfect for anyone musically interested or inclined, passing fans or anybody who enjoys generally well-informed colloquial conversation (this podcast, unlike our other output Københavnerlivet, is hosted in English).

This episode is centered around badass rapper and singer from New Zealand, Ladi6, who dives into her more than ten years of experience in the music industry with the enthusiasm of a proper maverick. We caught her while she’s busy on tour with the reggae soul band, Fat Freddy’s Drop, and our conversation spans these touring topics to her transition from rapper to solo singer to her studio life and being a working mother.

The song in focus is called “Walk Right Up”, a warm reggae tune off her 2010 album, Time is Not Much. Tune in!
