UK to AUS – Yizzy Releases the video for ‘Yeah’ RMX feat. Shadow and Nerve

Keeping the international Grime momentum moving: Yizzy, Shadow and Nerve are releasing the slick visual for ‘YEAH’ RMX.Set against a monochrome filter, the track kicks off with striking cinematic horn samples moving straight through to Yizzy’s high energy chorus -throwing back to the old school call and response Grime bars, juxtaposed with the choral samples that legendary producer Mr Virgo has become well known for.

One for the club and for the car, ‘YEAH’ RMX is 4 minutes of unrelenting power. Shadow and Nerve’s respective verses embrace the 140BPM energy whilst giving it their own unique Aussie flair – musically and visually.

Yizzy is an MC demanding attention. A massive 2018 for the artist saw him release the critically acclaimed EP: ‘SOS’ – stacking up several million Spotify streams, and numerous end of year lists.

Both Shadow and Nerve are known figures on the Australian hip hop scene and are now emerging onto the global grime scene with features on the Triple J show and 100’s of live shows under their belt.

Pushing for international grime to be more than a passing trend – this collaboration is defining the evolving scope of what it might look like.

Macshane Makes His Mark On 2019 With Long-Awaited Debut EP, The Macshane EP

Half man, half machine: Macshane is a rap anomaly. Born and bred in the Perth hills, he exploded onto the Perth music scene out of nowhere in 2015, and quickly rose to prominence as an MC and force not to be reckoned with. Now, he’s set to make his mark on 2019 with the release of his long-awaited debut EP, The Macshane EP.

Drawing on influences from all corners of hip-hop and electronic music to deliver intricate wordplay, complex flows and a unique perspective on concepts and themes, Macshane explores all of this and more on his debut EP. In 2018, Macshane released three singles further highlighting his innate skills not just as an MC but as a lyrical wordsmith as well, capitalising on his collaborative friendship with producer Unkle Ricky to create genre-defying tracks that see the two working in perfect harmony, with the pair “bouncing drums and melodies back and forth until we found a vibe.”

Straight off the back of his most recent single, ‘I Said’, which was described by Macshane as a “declaration of intent, a call to arms and an assertion of self in three minutes of fury,” Macshane is doubling down with the release of his long-awaited debut. Describing it as “nothing less than a journey from conception to writing and recording,” he went onto say he felt “lucky to finally tap a highly talented musical medium to unleash my thoughts, struggles and self realisations.” “I finally learnt to speak my mind and make music for myself as opposed to appeasing a trend or particular sound. Therefore I was unapologetic in dealing with themes such as self doubt, relationships, and ultimately the battle between who I think I am and what others think of me.” Solidifying his reputation as one of the country’s finest rappers, Macshane delivers a consistent body of work that isn’t afraid to dig deep into his own mind as well as society at large. Not shying away from trying new things and subverting preconceived notions of rap and hip hop in Australia, Macshane lays it all out on the table across seven tracks that each showcase a different element of his artistic identity.

With four singles already out in the world and three previously unheard new tracks, The Macshane EP highlights a rapper truly stepping into his own as an artist, and serves as not only the end of one chapter but the start of another – this really is just the beginning for Macshane.

The Macshane EP is out April 12th.

Talakai Enters 2019 With A Heavy Release

“Dream big, chase that, dig deep ‘cause I live for the lottery.” Talakai enters 2019 on the same high he left 2018, with a huge and heavy release.

Lottery, features dirty, dense production and heavy lyrics however, in Lottery Talakai brings the bounce, with an echoing, resonating hook which carries an underlying message of persistence and positivity.

After touring late 2017 off the back of the “Get Bodied” viral video series Talakai has been on the come up, playing sold out shows around the country and making cheeky appearances on Triple J’s Hip Hop show.

Far from the young kid coming up locally in the Newcastle scene Talakai has taken the movement nationally, oozing bravado and lyricism to rival the countries best. Gearing up for a huge 2019, Talakai sets his sights on the top with his debut EP in the works. With 2019 off to a blazing start, you can catch Talakai supporting ChillinIt on his sold out  The Ashes “Women Weed and Wordplay” Tour throughout March, April and May.

Red Bull Music Continues ’64 Bars’ Rap Series, Shares Second Episode With B Wise

Red Bull Music continues its studio rap series ‘64 Bars’, sharing a second Australian episode with South West Sydney rapper, B Wise. The series showcases 64 bars of razor-sharp raps – no bells, no whistles, no hooks from trailblazing artists.

First created at Red Bull Studios, Auckland, ‘64 Bars’ recently launched in Australia with an episode from Brisbane independent artist, Jesswar. Grounded and deep-thinking, B Wise jumps into the ‘64 Bars’ booth to deliver sharp-witted verses with a meaningful message. Following last year’s acclaimed debut album Area Famous, that was recently named FBi SMAC Record of the Year – B Wise has leapt from strength to strength, sitting at the forefront of the local hip-hop landscape with hard-earned perspective and experience.

The 64 Bars project was first founded at Red Bull Studios Auckland with David Dallas, as a simple method of having handpicked MCs hit the booth and lay down 64 bars. The series launched to critical acclaim with Brooklyn-based world-renowned rapper Talib Kweli and has since travelled the globe with regular episodes from Japan and now Australia. Taking rap back to basics, 64 Bars gives audiences the chance to hear their favourite artists flex the skills that launched their careers, and places a firm eye on rap’s upcoming best voices.

Tune in to Red Bull Music & Culture for the latest episodes of 64 Bars.

Interview: Mitchos Da Menace Breaks His ‘SILENCE’

aahh: Compared to your previous two releases, how do you see ‘silence’ the album representing your evolution as an artist?
Menace: Brother, I was hoping that the fans could answer that question for me. Since you’re asking me though, you listen to the first album, the second album and then the third one. From that, you can see the evolution. It’s maturity bro. I had to mature with my life experiences and what’s going on at the moment and that is portrayed in my music. I’m the MENACE and you all know it now! MGR.

aahh: On the title track SILENCE you state that “you like silence but can’t stand it” can you elaborate further on the ideas behind this track and the title of the album?
Menace: It’s me saying I like to be alone but it’s going be the death of me… I self destruct in different terms, it means a lot on a personal level. I actually got a beat from Oagz called “Serenade Of Silence”. I made the album from that beat and that idea.

48954505_2107667019289797_312038737083105280_o.jpg

aahh: How do you see independent artists such as yourself shaping the future of hip hop in this country?
Menace: We are the future of Aus Hip-Hop. We have so many talented artists making moves. From Manu Crooks heading to the USA and us collaborating with UK artists. We have helped shape it whether people accept/or like it or not! We carve lanes and inspire people in the local scene!

aahh: There have been numerous positive comments we’ve read about the beat selection on the new LP. What was your process for choosing the beats on the album?
Menace: I’ve been in a dark place over the last year Jim. This includes stuff with my family and myself. I needed to get a lot off my chest. The beats I picked touched me, to be honest. Deep dark and melodic.

aahh: You’ve opened silence with a small intro, can you tell us more about this and how it relates to the wider concepts on the album?
Menace: In simpler terms, it means “We stay silent, if a problem arises, me and my family take care of it, we don’t speak out to others, stay silent” – Mitchos The Menace!

aahh: What’s next for Menace?
Menace: I have a really big year ahead. 2019 will change a lot of lives, I’ll be giving 100% in everything I do! Keep your eyes peeled, you might even catch us overseas! MG201L7 .

Turquoise Prince Releases Brand New Single ‘Some Nights’

“Turquoise Prince is fast gaining notoriety for his irreverent humour, irresistible charm, and explosive live show” – All Aussie Hip Hop

Turquoise Prince is back with a stellar new single titled Some Nights. The upbeat track, which premiered on Triple J’s Home & Hosed program, is the first official offering since the much-celebrated release of Lighter, however in the interim the Canberra-bred MC/rapper (who was recently named as one of YouTube’s Artists To Watch in 2019) has successfully kept his growing legion of fans satisfied; releasing the cheeky banger Eric Banas and the hard-hitting street track Concussed a special collaboration with buzzing rapper ChillinIt.

TPC_SomeNights_Packshot_JPG_2

Some Nights offers something different. The dreamy yet club-ready garage beat provides a canvas for Turquoise to lay himself bare with musings on a lost love. “It’s a song that’s close to my heart, I wrote it when I was in a sad place, everyone’s been there.” Introspective and vulnerable, this is a side of Turquoise that is always there, often hidden behind a tough exterior, but never forgotten.

His music journey started with a diss track about his Year 7 teacher Mrs Gupta, eventually graduating to rap battles against his Canberra classmates. And whether those early battles resulted in praise or punch-ons, Turquoise was addicted to showmanship. Today, Turquoise Prince is an artist that critics still find impossible to categorise, and one who thrives on unpredictability with catchy, colourful results.

His breakout single Like Your Friends is upbeat R&B at its best, while the mesmerising Lighter takes things down to a lounging tempo. Hard-headed bangers alongside underground stars (ChillinIt, Mitchos Da Menace) feature Turquoise rapping with a Tongan warrior mentality, and collaborations with local hip-hop heroes (Horrorshow, Hau) have proven that this young shark can easily swim with the veterans.

Turquoise is steadily carving out a name for himself as a live performer, having already tackled some of the biggest stages on offer (Groovin’ The Moo, BIGSOUND and Spilt Milk) and taking on national tours with electronica stars Boo Seeka and rap staples Spit Syndicate. March 2nd will see him headline the One Day event One Day in the Capital on his home soil in Canberra alongside Sophiegrophy and Joyride.

2019 looks to be Turquoise’s biggest year yet, with a handful of singles, big-name collaborations and gigs in the works; and he’s determined to keep everyone on their toes. “I might drop some R&B tracks, I might drop some hard tracks,” he says. “I don’t know, I can’t even tell you what I’m having for lunch.” No matter which route he takes, it’s easy to see that Turquoise Prince is quickly working his way into Australian music royalty.

PREMIERE: Masked Wolf Delivers Fiery New Single, ‘Vibin’

After making a last-minute debut in 2018 with ‘Speed Racer’, Masked Wolf gave new fans a hint of the nocturnal, trap-tinged hip hop he’s been busy crafting. Now, ready to make 2019 his, Masked Wolf is straight out of the gates with his strongest release yet in ‘Vibin’.

MaskedWolf_Vibin.jpg

As Australian hip hop continues to transform and as the New Wave continues to assume a new identity, the stories coming out from emerging artists are getting closer and closer to the streets. So many different sounds all thriving within the same genre makes for a crowded space in which new artists are trying to be heard, so it really takes something else to separate from the masses.

For Masked Wolf, it’s all about paying tribute to his influences which are so prevalent in his music, but still sounding unique, and it’s through his storytelling that he maintains this. “I want to tell my own stories in a way that remains true to who I am,” Masked Wolf said.

Dedicated to the hustle and being true to yourself, ‘Vibin’ is complete with huge drops, booming bass and eccentric synths to lay down the perfect foundation for his rapidfire verses to float above. Masked Wolf sounds positively untouchable on ‘Vibin’, pushing forward his ethos of “I do me, you do you.”

Teaming up once again with internationally acclaimed producer Tyron Hapi for production duties, Masked Wolf strips back the dark side we heard on ‘Speed Racer’ while still focussing on his ambition and drive, opening himself right up for all to see on ‘Vibin’.

Assuring fans there’s a whole lot more still to come, ‘Vibin’ marks the start of what is set to be one hell of a year for the fresh-faced Sydney producer. A new member of the Teamwrk roster, Masked Wolf’s 2018 single, ‘Speed Racer’ amassed over 150K streams in just a few weeks, and now he’s ready to really unleash with ‘Vibin’.
