Drax Project


With over 180 million streams across various mixes and platforms, a top 30 placing on Billboard’s US radio charts, and multi-platinum sales here and in Australia, the breakthrough success of ‘Woke Up Late’ is enough to confirm Drax Project’s place in New Zealand music history.

’Woke Up Late’ wasn’t even their first placing on a Billboard chart; that came through their collaboration with US rapper Famous Dex. Drax Project went on to grow a huge fanbase at home and abroad, buoyed by hits including ‘Catching Feelings’.
