Tasman Keith shares new single ‘CONFIDENT’; announces forthcoming debut mixtape

Off the back of two sold-out shows in Sydney and the 2020 J Award for Best Australian Music Video Of The Year overnight, ascendant Bowraville-born rapper Tasman Keith today shares his latest single, ‘CONFIDENT’, and announces the forthcoming release of his debut mixtape To Whom It May Concern due this year.

Muscular and minimal, ‘CONFIDENT’ leans into the trunk-rattling, bare-bones style of previous single ‘BILLY BAD AGAIN’. With twisted, nocturnal synths, skittish percussion, and a late beat switch leading to a raucous, half-time climax, ‘CONFIDENT’ is not the first time Keith’s music can compare to Kendrick Lamar’s. What makes the comparison all the more apparent is Tasman’s finely-tuned craft; a flow that moves between leisurely, unapologetic aplomb and razor-sharp lucidity, oozing tenacity, perseverance, and an elemental self-assuredness no matter which gear he’s operating in. The result is goosebump inducing furore.

“Over the three verses in this song, I’m speaking to three different things,” Tasman shares. “In the first verse, I’m speaking on the confidence within myself. The second is me showing my confidence to the suits in the industry, and the third is showing it to racists/bigots. The third verse is also a moment where all three things are addressed in one verse.”

2020 has seen Tasman’s profile continue to rise through collaborations and guest features, appearing on Jimmy Nice’s ‘Same Water’, Northern Territory producer Kuya James’ powerful single ‘No Country’, including its own stripped-back version ‘No Country (Piano In F Minor)‘, and alongside Jessica Mauboy on ‘First Nation’, the second single lifted from The Makarrata ProjectMidnight Oil’s first studio album in over 18 years. Tasman capped yet another banner year with his debut TV performance twice on the second season of The ABC‘s live music series, The Sound.

Despite ‘CONFIDENT‘ being only his second solo release of the year this far, Tasman Keith continues to live up to its title – and then some.  ‘CONFIDENT’ by Tasman Keith is out now, buy/stream it here. To Whom It May Concern Mixtape out Dec 11.

Hooligan Hefs Drops His Hard-Hitting New Single And Video For “Send It!”

Since his monumental breakthrough in 2019, Western Sydney emcee Hooligan Hefs has been redefining homegrown hip-hop with his street-ready anthems, trademarked with his own unapologetic flair and uniquely brazen style. A newfound pioneer of Australian drill, the Samoan/Chinese artist today drops his new hard-hitting, party rap single “SEND IT!”.  

On the single, Hooligan Hefs notes “me and open till l8 cooked this one up over a year ago, when we made it, we knew it was a big tune, keen to finally get it out to the people. This is the song for summer, grab your drink, SEND IT! and party hard.”

The single also comes along side an epic new music video, directed by Jaen Collective. On the video, Hefs adds “we just wanted to have fun with it, so we pulled out the mailman idea, something different, but you know we had to still party.” 

Dubbed the biggest rap act and breakout solo act in Australia for 2019, Hefs backed that up earlier this year by releasing his highly-anticipated and #1 iTunes debut EP, Living In SinThe EP saw Hefs delve into a more reflective and reserved side of his artistry, working with melodic vocalists and fellow Australian rising stars like Blueboy and Billymaree and UK drill favourite Dimzy of 67.

Now with five singles landing at #1 on the YouTube trending charts, over 70 million plays on Spotify, one ARIA Platinum record (“No Effect”), three ARIA Gold records (“The Party”, “Tell Em I’m Doing Eetswa and “IYKYK”), headline performances at Lost City, Meredith Music Festival and Spotify’s ‘A1 Live’ event and collaborations with global stars including AitchS1mba and Dimzy, Hefs is one of the few Australian rappers with proven worldwide reach. With the release of his new single “SEND IT!”, Hefs delivers yet another smash hit that’s best played at festivals, clubs and kick-ons, and one that’ll stay on repeat all summer.

With Hefs having been in the spotlight for just over a year, his achievements read like that of a seasoned veteran. But for Hefs, the best is yet to come.
