Sacredd is a self-produced female hip-hop artist from Adelaide, South Australia. Embodying an alternative approach to both her craft and overall presence, Sacredd delivers catchy punch lines, bouncy flows and hard hitting production.
Sacredd kicked off the first half of this year with the release of her single “Blue Gem$” on all digital platforms. Blue Gem$ highlighted the artist’s ability to execute an array of smooth deliveries, and as a result landed itself on numerous Spotify curated playlists such as The Drip, Fresh Finds AU/NZ and A1 HipHop. As well as gaining attention from Triple J’s Declan Byrne and the EDGE 96.1’s DJ Nino Brown.
Towards the end of February Sacredd returned with her single ‘Freak($)’, a much darker UK Drill inspired track which also gained notable placements on Spotify playlists Local Hype and Beats n’ Bars. Sacredd’s third release for the year titled ‘Pep$i’, was released April 14th gaining itself a spot on both Triple J’s Home & Hosed and continuous daily rotation on Triple J Unearthed radio.
To top off the official halfway mark of the year, Sacredd’s most recent single PPP continued the momentum on July 14th with Spotify playlist placements on both The Drip & Local Hype, shortly followed by PPP finding itself in rotation on both Triple J and Triple J Unearthed
Sanctified is small extended play of music containing three pre released singles from 2022, and three unreleased tracks. The three pre-released singles (Blue Gem$, Pep$i, PPP) bring upbeat and motivated energy, while the unreleased tracks (Yankees, Committed, Secrets) bring more raw lyricism with UK Drill inspired deliveries, with a touch of vulnerability within the final track ‘Secrets’. Sanctified captures the self-assured, can do attitude and resilience that Sacredd has to offer.
