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.

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 .

UK To Australia: UK Grime Artist Yizzy Release’s ‘YEAH’ Remix feat. Nerve & Shadow

Traditionally rooted heavily in London culture, Yizzy is making pioneering moves to bring together the global grime talent base starting by teaming up with two of Australia’s best: ‘Shadow’ and ‘Nerve’, for the first major international Grime collaboration on this remix of his high octane banger – ‘YEAH’.0N1A2794.jpgThe 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 is 4 minutes of unrelenting power. Shadow and Nerve’s respective verses embrace the 140BPM energy whilst giving it their own unique Aussie flair.Yizzy is an MC who demands attention, his rapid rise in the scene proves that he is a force to be reckoned with. A massive 2018 with the critically acclaimed ‘SOS’ EP saw Yizzy stack up several million Spotify streams and numerous end of year lists. Causing serious heat in the underground, previously collaborating with Terror Danjah, Treble Clef and Skengdo and AM, it seems there is no stopping him for 2019.

Both Shadow and Nerve are known figures on the Australian scene and recently emerging onto the global grime scene with features on the triple j show and 100’s of live shows under their belt. One of the front runners of the next generation of grime, Yizzy is pioneering not only the sound but also the changing scope of what next generation grime means.
