YG Announces Triple One As Support For Australian Tour

YG has revealed that Sydney motley crew Triple One will be the national support for his Australian tour which will hit our shores in two short weeks.

Continuing their whirlwind year, sharing the stage with YG will be among the many highlights. Their breakout hit ‘Tarlo’ brought their vicious and volatile raps to the masses with an add-on triple j, leading the way for singles ‘Valentine Kid’ and ‘Showoff’ to follow. The crew boast over 600,000 monthly Spotify listeners and were crowned triple j unearthed’s Feature Artist of the Week in June.

YG will be joining us to launch his most recent, third studio album ‘STAY DANGEROUS’ released in August and features guest appearances from A$AP Rocky, Nicky Minaj, Ty Dolla Sign and more. The full length debuted at #5 on the US Billboard 200 – his third top ten in the US – with single ‘Big Bank’ going Platinum. In Australia, it debuted at #15 on the ARIA Album Charts.

The tour will coincide with his slot at Spilt Milk in Canberra which has sold out, making the national tour the only place to catch YG.

YG’s debut album ‘My Krazy Life’ dropped in 2014 with features from Drake and Schoolboy Q amongst its guests, sending the 14-tracker to number two on the album charts. His follow up ‘Still Brazy’ took a more political route, the viral, anti-Donald Trump single ‘FDT’ became an anthem during the presidential election in 2016. YG also entered the ARIA Top 20 charts in 2016 with Jeremih, featuring on his international knockout hit ‘Don’t Tell Em’.

Over his time in the music industry, YG’s collaborated with the best including Mariah Carey, Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, Drake, Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj and 50 Cent solidifying his heavyweight status.

YG heads back to Australia after his debut 2015 co-headline tour with long-time collaborator Ty Dolla $ign. His follow up 2017 tour sold-out in record time and forced a reschedule to accommodate all his die-hard fans. He then returned to the US to support Kendrick Lamar on the 15-date D.A.M.N tour, ensuring his incredible high energy live show is certified by the best.

Get ready to party this November as YG and triple One storm through the nation.

Tasman Kieth Releases Debut EP ‘Mission Famous’

Following up the fire-spitting ode to personal triumph, My Pelopolees, Tasman Keith has flipped the table with the music video for Divided; a smooth flow about the harder times, depression and the blurred lines between shared experiences.

Divided was the final taste of Tasman Keith’s debut EP ‘Mission Famous‘ ahead of its release today, Friday, October 26. To celebrate it’s release Tasman is now the cover photo for the official Australian Hip Hop Spotify playlist, ‘All Aussie Hip Hop’.

600x600bf

A loud voice in the fight for recognition, compassion and acceptance for individuals struggling through mental illness; Tasman takes the stories of those in his circle, combines them with his own personal stories and challenges his audience to find the line.

“Divided speaks from a standpoint in which I’m finding myself in the same position as many people do, dealing with depression and issues that are tough to face. Throughout the entire song, I dip in between speaking from a personal experience and taking the experience of others that I have seen be affected by these issues, people in my circle, family. The challenge for the listener is trying to find where that line is drawn, which parts are my truth and which parts are the truths of others,” said Tasman.

2017 marked a major milestone for Tasman; bursting on the independent hip-hop scene with his debut studio single ‘Might Snap’ which followed multiple underground mixtape releases since 2014. ‘Might Snap’ went into rotation across several community radio platforms including FBi Radio and received critical acclaim on triple j Unearthed. Shortly after, Tasman teamed up with ARIA nominated producer James Mangohig and Bad Apples Music’s Nooky to begin the process of compiling his debut studio EP.

Tasman has since shared the stage with renowned artists such as A. B. Original, Briggs, Birdz and Caiti Baker and performed at the Blue Mountain Music Festival and the Bad Apples Music House Party. Tasman had also collaborated with renown writer, poet, and rapper Omar Musa for the lead single ‘Assimilate’ on his album, ‘Since Ali Died’.

Tasman echoes the powerful message he presents in his music, using his platform to be a powerful voice for social justice and Indigenous issues. He was invited by lauded UK hip-hop artist, poet, writer, and activist Akala to sit on the Sydney Ideas Panel during which Tasman spoke passionately about the importance of using hip-hop as a medium to shed light on important issues facing his community and society at large.

Remi & Raiza Biza return with new collaborative EP Black Hole Sun, out now

New Zealand’s Raiza Biza and Australia’s hip-hop frontrunner Remi Kolawole has recently shared their new EP Black Hole Sun via their respective imprints Low Key Source and House of Beige Records. With the record’s beat-making in the hands of Detroit’s legendary hip-hop and production maestro Black Milk, the 6-track masterpiece flows between infectious grooves and features from the likes of Sampa the Great and Baro. Ahead of their upcoming Australia & New Zealand tour, the collaboration is also treating fans to the wild visuals for debut single “Runner” ft. Baro.

The impeccable release absorbs all the free-flowing vocals and dynamic production afforded by the lineup of cross-nation collaborators, making for a melting pot of hip-hop and soul visions in one stunning reel of beats. Recent track “Runner” ft. Baro gave the first taste from the team; a high tempo, beat-driven hip-hop track electrified by dancing production from Black Milk, slick lyrics and cheeky verses from Melbourne friend Baro. Dropping the knees to a lower body groove, “Jiggy” expels deep bass strums to drive formidable vocals, backed by the smooth rhymes of Sampa the Great for a spine-tingling track and a force to be reckoned with. Stepping behind the mic for the feverous “Freeman”, Black Milk joins Remi and Raiza for a stunning marriage of hip-hop vocals atop a slowed down beat, explosive bass hits and spiralling keys.

Livestock” sees a refrain from special guests for a perfect homage to the chemistry behind the Remi and Raiza partnership, embodied in flowing vocals and blissful harmonies beside Black Milk’s ascending beats you can’t help but shimmy along to. “P.O.M.” continues the killer showcase of collaborative vocals while Black Milk curates yet another undeniable deep groove that slides into the finale in “Genesis”. A thought-provoking and powerful speech sustained by rolling production and defiant rhymes delivered once again by Sampa the Great, the track is a seamless sign-off to the record.

Accompanying the new EP is the video for recent sensation “Runner”, following the late-night escapades of Remi, Raiza and Baro, plus a cameo from Remi’s long-time musical collaborator (and half of REMI) Sensible J, who mixed the record at House of Beige Studios.

In celebration of the EP Remi and Raiza Biza will be bringing their new record in its entirety live to select stages in both their home countries this November. Kicking off on Friday November 9 on Remi’s home turf at Melbourne Northcote Social Club, the boys will then head to Sydney’s iconic The Lansdowne Hotel on Friday November 16. They will next venture to Caroline in Wellington on Friday November 23 to meet Raiza Biza’s national fans, before wrapping up at Auckland’s Neck of the Woodson Saturday November 24. Fans can also catch Remi with his full live band at Southern Comfort’s multi-stage party Southern Sounds, hitting Sydney on Saturday December 8.

REMI are firmly placed at the top of Australia’s soul and hip-hop spectrum, having performed sold-out headline tours across Europe & Australia as well as shared the stage with the likes of Joey Bada$$Danny Brown & De La Soul. Hamilton-based Kiwi-Rwandan rapper Raiza Biza has also seen global success, taking his captivating storytelling to stages across Europe, Australia and New Zealand. No strangers to collaboration, the artists have previously worked together on REMI’s Divas and Demons track “Hate You”, with Remi also backing up on a remix track for Raiza’s “Strong Woman”. Their guest vocalists have also long been part of the family, with Remi and Sampa each featuring on one another’s latest records as well as Sensible J’s debut solo release “Fire Sign”.

Needing little introduction since rising as a young hip-hop star, Detroit visionary Black Milk made his first major mark on the industry with his work on Slum Village’s records before going on to work with the likes of J. DillaDanny BrownRZABlack Thought (The Roots), and Pharoahe Monch. Now signed to Nas’ record label Mass Appeal Records, where his latest multi-genre masterpiece FEVER was released, the prolific producer and rapper continues to expand on his acclaimed and diverse portfolio now with this new collaborative gem that will keep you moving with each and every listen.

JamarzOnMarz, an Australian Lyricist and Saxophonist, releases his first single, ‘Amnesia’, from his forthcoming debut project. After the release of the Spotify Viral Chart hit, ‘Fire Extinguisher’, JamarzOnMarz is making a return to his worldwide audience with another controversial hit, but this time produced by the renown CashMoneyAp. Lyrically, ‘Amnesia’ delves into an uncharted Hip-Hop territory, as it dabbles with themes of gay sexuality and culture, and calls for a reinvigoration of competitive rap in Australia.

“I’m in my own lane. Who else can get straight people rapping gay lyrics?” – JamarzOnMarz

Three things inspired Jamarz’ amnesia: one, Grindr ‘hook-ups’ that became possessive (Jamarz identifies as gay), two, the use of party drugs inherent in gay nightlife culture, and thirdly, the Australian music industry overlooking his talent and accomplishments. Jamarz cements his self-proclaimed rise to rap “suprem[acy]” with clever plays on his sexuality; “Our closets aren’t on par, masc[uline] can’t match marz bar for bar”, and his alto saxophone subtly sampled throughout the track.

On a recent Instagram Live, JamarzOnMarz stated that ‘Amnesia’ is “the greatest Australian rap song, ever”. Jamarz’ confidence has built up over the past year following a performance with Solange in her band; for four sold-out shows at the Sydney Opera House, a set at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games on a LGBTQ line-up; with Courtney Act and Marcia Hines, and a Guinness World Record Toga Party; at the iconic Riverstage in Brisbane.
