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.

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.

Far from an overnight success that he may appear to the casual fan, ChillinIt has been patiently developing and honing his craft for many years into one of the most exciting rappers to emerge out of Australia. Getting somewhat of a breakthrough via the influential Hustle Hard TV YouTube some six years ago, the talented and versatile Sydney rapper has recently released his excellent debut album “Women, Weed & Wordplay” to widespread critical acclaim and success. With an impressive independent 1.5 million-plus streams with no playlist help or distribution deal in the first week alone, the proof is in the numbers for the versatile wordsmith with the album charting at #1.

Along with contemporaries Wombat, Nerve, Talakai, Shadow, Huskii, Lil Sknow, Mitchos Da Menace, Triple One, TRYL and Skrub, ChillinIt has led the charge for the new generation of skilled emcees to emerge from down under – aided by the excellent work that the affiliated Body Bag Media platform has been able to develop. Building on the style of the independent foundation created by the likes of Kerser, Fraksha, Fortay, and Alex Jones before him, ChillinIt has certainly emerged in the last year or two with a legion of fans and a strong potential to take his refreshing sound truly global. His music has already organically linked him to the UK, scoring a spot on JDZ Media and a collaboration with English grime emcee Kamakaze.

The charismatic ChillinIt oozes star factor and has cultivated a family of fans known as the #420Fam. It is easy to see why he has developed such a rabid following in the recent years, with skills and authenticity on the microphone only matched by his energetic live shows that have many saying are some of the best in the country. There’s no rapping off phones, there’s no stumbling and fumbling his way through live shows just near complete hungry, raw, professionalism. Amassing tens of millions streams/views in the last year or so alone, ChillinIt definitely has the potential to be one of the first rappers from Australia to truly break through to the contemporary American market and has already sparked significant major record label interest. The hungry rapper is keen to showcase his many different styles with lyrical content to match almost any mood.

If reaction videos were a gauge of his potential overseas, he may eventually prove to be as fire globally as he is at home. With a strong, consistent work ethic already in the young talented artist, it will be an interesting few coming months to see how ChillinIt is able to negotiate his increasingly new levels of success which only seems to develop by the hour. A truly talented rapper at the core, Australia is proud that such an artist is leading the charge and expect him to level up again soon. Expect to see him on further major Australasian tour support and festival slots by his own accord soon – before taking the world by storm.

Check his debut album “Women, Weed & Wordplay” streaming now and catch up on his extensive back catalog before it’s a Chill takeover. #420Family

After generating an inescapable buzz in Australia and underground hip-hop scenes across the globe, Sydney’s Triple One have now released their new single ‘Showoff.’ Having accumulated well over 20 million total streams, Triple One are Australia’s most promising emerging hip-hop act, and state their mission once more on ‘Showoff.’

Premiering on triple j, ‘Showoff’ features the group’s signature blend of hard-headed rap, melodic hooks and intense production. The accompanying video clip is shot in a nostalgic high school setting, but with very subversive undertones – featuring cameos from Triple One’s favourite rap colleagues and collaborators including ChillinIt, Wombat, Huskii, Lil Sknow, Raj Mahal, Talakai, Turquoise Prince and Freesouls. The video was created by Entropico, with styling by Asia Carino and photography by Cole Bennetts.

“The Australian hip-hop scene is crazy right now, we wanted to unite some of our favourite artists to replicate our own high school days,” Triple One say. “That, and we wanted to wear school uniforms again. Forgot how to do a tie, but we got there in the end.”

Thus far, Triple One’s career has progressed entirely organically, reaching all corners of the globe through online sharing. Fan favourite track ‘Autumn Collection’ has reached over 5 million streams online, while cult singles like ‘Doozy’ have become instantly quotable anthems, displaying the group’s ability to switch between R&B and rap with slick confidence.

With sell-out shows and recent festival appearances at Listen Out and Bigsound, Triple One will continue hitting stages all over the country including Festival of the Sun and Falls Festival this summer, with their shows earning a notorious live reputation. Triple One are not to be missed live, but stand well back if you’re scared of getting your beer spilled.
