5 YEARS ON (volume ⬆️): I love that such a difficult time for me as an artist resulted in this record that gave me so much back….

5 YEARS ON (volume ⬆️): I love that such a difficult time for me as an artist resulted in this record that gave me so much back.

It was an ambitious concept started in my mid 30s and released in my late 30s. I wiped my ego almost clean and entered without the burden of expectation so I enjoyed the release; the touring and everything about it, in a way that I’d kinda forgotten after so many years of album cycles and gigs and all the industry stuff.

Funny how the more professional and adept you become as an artist, the less enjoyable it can be. I gave everything to this record but I gave less of a fuck about *success* and just appreciated the privilege of being able to do it. Turned out that was the sweet spot 😍

Too many brilliant artists I got to work with who I can’t tag. Many barely use facebook anymore cos of how facebook uses artists. But I have so much love for Hermitude, Pip Norman, Kira Puru, Bertie Blackman, Jane Tyrrell, B Wise, Nic Martin, Sarah McCloskey, L-FRESH The LION, Mirrah, Okenyo, Jayteehazard, Claire Nakazawa, Meklit, Sampa the Great, Montaigne, Rahj Jordan, Dggz, Elefant Traks, Caitlin Park, Broken Yellow, Jen Ng.

Ty to Sereen Sounds for cutting this video together.

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.

Sophiya Channels Her Boss Alter Ego With New Single ‘Chief O’ Kief’

After making her long-awaited return earlier this year with the hard hitting ‘Rosie’, Melbourne rapper SOPHIYA is back for more this week with new single ‘Chief O’ Kief’. Originating from a freestyle recording she wrote last year, SOPHIYA pays tribute to her favourite recreational herb while also going deeper in her mission to personify self-empowerment with this latest single.

Over a deep, rumbling bass, she remains as formidable as ever on the mic as she effortlessly takes aim at Melbourne’s underground rap scene. Drawing inspiration from pioneering rapper Chief Keef, SOPHIYA explained, “Chief O’ Kief is an alter ego I created that runs the streets in the underground rap scene of Melbourne. The song pays tribute to my favourite recreational herb.”

Released alongside the song is another stellar visual from SOPHIYA, taking her on a wild trip down the rabbit hole thanks to a very welcome herbal surprise. “I thought it would be perfect to release a super chill music video during these uncertain times for everyone to enjoy and de-stress,” SOPHIYA said

SOPHIYA is always one to bring her community along with her, and this clip is no different. Teaming up with models Jassyyfizzle, Babygyal, Vanessa Librea and Iannah as well as linking up with formidable dancer Xavier Gibson once again, the ‘Chief O’Kief’ video also sees SOPHIYA work with previous collaborators 76m Films X Fun Films who she worked with on the ‘White Ivory’ video, as well as Johnny Yayo who directed the video for previous single ‘Rosie’. “I thought it would be dope to fuse their styles to bring together two of Melbourne’s best filmmakers.”

New single ‘Chief O’ Kief’ also sees SOPHIYA once again in the producer seat, working alongside rising Melbourne producer HAMLEY for added co-production flair. Also teaming up again with DOPAM!NE for mixing duties, ‘Chief O’ Kief’ is an exercise in SOPHIYA’s versatility, effortlessly switching up her flow without ever missing a beat. From the addictive hook that will be stuck in your head for days, to the playful, spitfire verses she lays down like it’s no big deal, ‘Chief O’ Kief’ puts her impressive lyrical prowess on full display.

From receiving love from triple j, triple j Unearthed and tastemakers Acclaim and Purple Sneakers, to unleashing a show-stopping freestyle for Red Bull’s 64 Bars series (which sits at 500K views and counting), SOPHIYA’s brand of empowered, bold and braggadocious hip hop continues to shake things up. And there’s still plenty more to come.
