The digital release of LYRIC ON MY LIP and the documentary celebrate the 15th anniversary of the album, which was put out by the Bristol-based Full Cycle Records. The label was established by legendary DJ and producer Roni Size who, with Reprazent, won the coveted Mercury Music Prize, helping Full Cycle Records become one of the most important drum and bass labels of the time. Size is also credited with discovering and giving Tali a shot - as one of the few female MCs in the industry at the time.
When Full Cycle Records folded, so too did any chance for the album to be released digitally. But with Tali acquiring the rights to the masters, so began the process of working towards the record’s first-ever digital release.
The documentary, which follows Tali’s journey from LYRIC ON MY LIP to now, as one of the few female MCs in the industry at the time, includes interviews with Size as well as other iconic names on the scene such as Bryan G, DRS, DJ Marky, A.I. Concord Dawn, Dynamite MC, DJ Dazee, Stamina, Rob Machete from Respect in LA, as well as many other people who were 'there'.
It is a celebratory snapshot of one of New Zealand’s most internationally successful artists – an important part of the country’s rich and diverse music history that has so far largely gone untold.
Tali often performs with DJ Emma G (Soulside Sessions) DJ Aroha, Chiccoreli (Liquid Lowdown) and with her live DnB band.
