Tim Driver is one half of hip hop duo Dillastrate. Inspired by the life and works of J Dilla. The duo combines modern digital sounds with analogue soul, bringing you the best of both worlds. With an intimidating range of styles, from delicate soul to intense electronica and everything in between.

The Hot Grits is Afro-soul-meets-Aotearoa roots and energy. The Hot Grits sound is “What do you get when you fix a pound of Fela Kuti’s Afrika 70, two cupfuls of The Meters, 250g of thinly sliced early James Brown and a level dessert spoon of psychedelic rock?”
