“Since his first releases in 2018, Viennese rapper Bibiza has been a guarantor of progressive hip-hop from the Austrian capital.”- diffusmag (Translated from the German original)
Bibiza raps. Bibiza produces. Everything is designed and developed in a DIY manner. Not on his own, but together with the chosen family around him – prodbypengg, Eli Preiss, Liebcozy, Supergerne and the rest of the swift circle – because everything rises and falls with mutual support.
With the help of YouTube tutorials, Bibiza started making his first beats and rapping at the age of 14. His new home and connecting point to the local scene were the Rap Battles at the Viennese club The Loft. With a lot of love, the first tracks and videos were created in 2018, and in 2019 the first album “Copypaste” was released. 2020 followed not only the second album “Bis Dato” but also 2 EPs, which included collaborations with Mavi Phoenix (“?!”) and SLAV (Combo EP).
As of July 2, Bibiza has released eight singles in 2021 alone, which will be compiled in a mixtape. In winter 21, the debut of the “Indie Bibi” arrived. Following the motto ‘diversity’ rather than ‘simplicity’ pieces appeared like “Live like a hippie”. Since then, one can also experience Bibiza at selected shows with a full live band.
