  1. Album Review: Flu - FTIBAG

    Album Review: Flu - FTIBAG
    F#ck This I’m Buying A Gun This film/album is monumental. Full stop. If the writer of this article attempted to foolishly describe this release in full detail, then he would be a beardly man with many a forgotten dream. FTIBAG is so layered, textured and brilliant. It is the sort of film that surreptitiously works on all of your senses...

  3. Nerve – Til Death ft Retayner & Wombat

    Nerve – Til Death ft Retayner & Wombat
    Nerve – Til Death ft Retayner & Wombat Sometimes the direction of Australian Hip-Hop concerns me, there’s so much ego involved in the scene, unnecessary beef and bullshit, a general lack of respect and some music reflects that. On the other hand, those doubts are quelled constantly by the younger talent in this country. The insurgence of new talent and...

    Peeps 'One With Me'
    Peeps – One With Me ‘One With Me’ is the single from Peeps’ sophomore release “Dying To Live” the follow up to his debut Ep “Waiting To Die.” There are few words to describe this track without one personally listening to it, if you take the time to rotate it, listening to the delivery, lyrical content, production, mix and the...

    Gig Review! Kerser live @ Max Watts With Rates, Jay UF and Skrub & Nerve
    KERSER live @ Max Watts W, Rates, Jay UF Supports: Skrub & Nerve   As evidenced by tonight’s turn-out, where Hilltop has history Kerser has an army of soldiers loyal to whatever ABK 225 does next. Never has a homegrown rapper been such the puppet master as this Sydney-sider. Tonight could very well be a recruitment drive. Outside the event at...

  10. Album Review: Context - Rogue Astronaut EP

    Album Review: Context - Rogue Astronaut EP
    Context - Rogue Astronaut EP Cover Boom bap. It’s a phrase used loosely in this astrological age. Context & Jimmy Flipshyt are names synonymous with the genre. Transmitting their dusty frequencies through the stratosphere for what a mere mortal may perceive as thousands of Earth days, it’s fair to say they have been making noise in Melbourne for quite...
