    Briggs Announces Sheplife Tour!


    Briggs Sheplife National Tour Flyer

    BRIGGS will be hitting the road this October / November for a national run of dates in support of his brand new album 'SHEPLIFE’.

    ‘SHEPLIFE’ is the culmination of generations of observations, experiences and stories. The aggression is there but it’s tempered with a thoughtfulness that is always the separator between the good and great artists. As he said himself: “If ‘THE BLACKLIST’ was the punch in the face, ‘SHEPLIFE’ is why I punched you in the face.”

    With appearances from Ill Bill, Joyride, Hau Sietta and Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu ‘SHEPLIFE’ is the album by which BRIGGS will be compared to for his whole career and he likes that, the good ones always thrive on pressure.

    Featuring the incredible first single “THE HUNT”, with vocals and instrumentation from ARIA-winning legend Gurrumul, and the latest single, the raw and powerful “BAD APPLES’, the critically acclaimed album has received widespread airplay across the country and cemented BRIGGS’ place as a powerful force in Australian Hip Hop. Watch “BAD APPLES” HERE

    Now BRIGGS will be hitting the road with 'SHEPLIFE’, his first Top 20 ARIA Accredited album and Top 3 debut on the Carlton Dry Independent Chart, a 4/4 star review from Rolling Stone magazine and the support of triple j, his peers and fans.

    Catch BRIGGS in your town this October / November with special guest National support HAU (Koolism / JJJ Hip Hop show) who will be releasing his ‘FOOTBALL, FEASTS AND FUNERALS’ mixtape in time for the tour.

  • Souls Of Mischief Announce Australian Tour!

    Souls Of Mischief Announce Australian Tour!


    Souls Of Mischief Australian Tour



    Legendary hip-hop group Souls of Mischief, announce a national tour off the back of the release of their brand new album “There Is Only Now”. The group, who last visited Australia in 2006 with Trent Slingshot, will commence their tour in Canberra on October 31st, before stopping in Sydney and Perth, and finishing their tour off in Melbourne on November 3rd.

    Starting with their landmark debut ’93 ‘til Infinity, Oakland’s four-person rap group Souls of Mischief has blazed the trail for hip hop’s evolution. Members Tajai, A-Plus, Phesto, and Opio have left their mark sonically, lyrically, and stylistically on Kanye West, Just Blaze, Big Sean, Big K.R.I.T., P. Diddy, Vampire Weekend, John Mayer, and many more who have cited them as cultural icons and influencers. Souls is also credited as having pioneered the independent label movement when they started Hieroglyphic Imperium Records in 1997 following their departure with JIVE Records, creating the infrastructure blueprint for other successful independent hip-hop labels. Co-founders of the Hiero label also include Emcees Del Tha Funky Homosapien, Casual, Pep Love, and producer Domino. Souls’ also forged hip-hop’s relationship with the skate, surf, and snowboard communities after iconic skate brands included their music in their VHS videotapes in the mid-90’s.

    The group’s creative output and legacy as a whole continues to thrive, and they show no sign of stopping. In 2013, Souls celebrated the 20 year anniversary of ’93 til Infinity, prepped a documentary film, embarked on a 50-city “Still Infinity Tour,” and released a joint 20th anniversary limited edition tee shirt capsule collection with Ecko Unlimited. They are now prepping for the August 15th release of their sixth studio album, There Is Only Now, a cinematic collaborative effort with renowned producer Adrian Younge on Adrian’s newly launched Linear Labs record label.

    There Is Only Now sees the Souls of Mischief crew members trading bars with a cast of hip-hop and soul luminaries. Narrated by A Tribe Called Quest member Ali Shaheed Muhammed–as DJ for fictional local Oakland radio station K-NOW–the album’s story unfolds under his all-seeing eye. Busta Rhymes makes an appearance as the story’s villain, Womack, on “Womack’s Lament,” while William Hart of the legendary vocal soul group, The Delfonics, lends his buttery falsetto to the contemplative “Another Side of You.” Snoop Dogg drops knowledge on the situation between Stoney and Womack with an ice cold verse on the title track “There Is Only Now,” and Scarub from Living Legends goes in on “Stone Cold.”

    Souls of Mischief and Adrian Younge have created a hip-hop album like no other. Recorded solely on 2″ analogue tape, using only acoustic live instrumentation played mostly by Adrian himself, and recorded together as a group in one room, the project boasts incredible dedication, discipline, and skill sets that few others in the modern day can match. Adrian employed no computers, no drum sampling, and everything was recorded in one take. The result of a special moment for all involved, There Is Only Now proves that after two decades in the rap game hip-hop’s Fab Four remains committed to the expansion of their legacy as hip-hop innovators and pioneers.
