    Perth rapper Bitter Belief has just dropped a brand new music video and track and shows why he is one of the best rappers coming out of Perth at the moment with 'XLR8.'

    Bitter Belief has been smashing the new music this year with massive releases and shows throughout Western Australia including a recent Perth City Cypher featuring Dekstah, D-Vine, Bkame, Greesy. This track shows of the intricate wordplay skills and flow Bitter Belief is well known for and complements the beat incredibly. The new video is filmed around some insane looking cars and has the wonderful Perth city in the background while utilizing the hotted up cars including a golf buggy.

  • Australian Hip Hop Artist Spotlight - Demolition

    Australian Hip Hop Artist Spotlight - Demolition

     

    Demolition Tristan Yuile aka Demolition

     

    Demoliton

     

    From freestyling to writing poetry all the way to rap battles Demolition has immersed himself in every aspect of hip hop within his grasp since he first fell in love with the genre. Standing center stage amongst his sound is the unique deep tone that could only be Demolition, along with an array of melodies and hooks blended within a rhyming scheme that keeps listeners tuned in to his clever and intricate story telling.

    As a performer you can expect to see an artist that doesn’t hold back on stage no matter the crowd or venue. You can expect to hear a freshly polished set of your favorite, or new favorite, tunes from his latest works, as seen while supporting the likes of Cortext, Paulie P, Bam Bam, Manaz Ill and Greeley and more.

    With the release of his latest album “Faith In The Frequencies” Demolition shows his ability to work with artists of all types from the scene, such as Tys & Mitchell James, Shaye Bianchi, Jaks, Cortext, Kogz, The SBX General himself Mc Optamus and many more.

    Faith in the Frequencies was just the beginning, so get ready.

    We caught up with the rising Australian hip hop artist Demolition for a quick chat.

    Demolition

     

    OHHS - Hey mate hope all is well, You only have recently landed back in Australia after a year or two break overseas how was that?

     

    Demolition - Yeah I've been back around 3 weeks I was in Vancouver for just over a year I didn't do any shows or anything but I kept on top of writing tracks and learning new production techniques etc as i'd like to produce my own beats one day soon, so I didn't really take a break but I did have an awesome time while I was there, Vancouver is an amazing city.

     

    Did you get a chance to see some local hip hop while traveling?

     

    I was fortunate enough to get free entry to a naughty by nature gig, Treach and Kay gee, and saw the local supports, to be honest i wasn't that impressed at the time, it wasn't till further down the track when i saw some rappers busking in the street using loop peddles and keyboards to make beats using mostly their voices and synth sounds, then rapping over them, that i got into the Canadian hip hop. It probably didn't help that the music scene in Vancouver is over flooded with artists I mean there's musicians everywhere its crazy.

     

    Did you find they have a different way of doing things in your eyes or was it very similar to the local scene?

     

    It was similar in some aspects i guess. They have a huge thing with weed being medically legal, although any one can get it really, and its cheap, really strong and everywhere most artists seemed to just talk about getting high and seemed quiet stoned on stage too haha but I guess that's just a difference in our cultures and I only got to see a small part of their scene so I cant really make any assessments to be honest. all I can say is i enjoyed most of what I saw.

     

    What was the main reason for you getting into the hip hop culture?

     

    The main reason... well damn there's a few aghhh I guess it comes down to the fact that I used to try my hand at singing but it wasn't a path I could follow really I just don't have the pipes for it in the way i would like, I was fortunate enough in 2003 to meet a guy in high school who was into hip hop and he started teaching me how to rap and then we would freestyle for laughs. Optamus (Downsyde, SBX) came to our school that same year with, My now good friends, Delta Forse and were doing workshops and performances and we spit some freestyles with them at lunch time one day and he was really supportive and acknowledged that we might have something so he, for me personally, was a huge impact on the reason why I got into it but I guess the essence of why i'm into hip hop is due to my love of music in general. I mean there's no feeling better then when you finish writing a song you go in and record it, mix it, master it and then get to perform it in front of people that are really vibing of something as simple as a thought that crossed your mind one day at work or driving home or even just laying in bed.

    Faith in the frequencies by Paul Deej

    Your last album Faith In Frequencies that was released at the start of the year and was a solid debut release featuring some strong local talent like Optamus, Cortext, Bryte Mc and some production from Perth producer Rob Shaker. How did the album come about and what was it like working with the other artists?

     

    It was a real mission to a degree I mean you don't really know or understand what it takes to put out an album until you've traveled that road yourself, but i will say its really rewarding and I got to work with some of my favourite artists and a few I never dreamed i'd get to work with I mean I never expected in a million years that Optamus would not only be rapping but co producing on a track, City Of Kings, on the album he even wrote the hook for the track which turned out incredible. most of my beats came from Creed Birch, he makes the style that seems to fit me best, with the exception of some beats from Big Tybes and one each from Cam Bluff, Cortext and Andrew Wright. Rob Shaker mixed and mastered the entire album down at Shakedown Studios with the exception of some feature verses and he nailed it, it was a real experience to work with some one that knows what their doing and has been around the scene, I mean i'm real new to doing this thing right, everyone that was involved in the album was only involved because i wanted them and chose them to be and luckily for me their some of the sickest artists we have in Australia, there were moments where I was concerned as its not easy to get feature artists on the same page as you because its not their project its yours and you have a time frame in your head and you want to meet that time frame but it drags out waiting for verses or hooks or when i'm available to record but I stuck to it I knew what i wanted and it was worth the months of pestering Mc's to write or record. all in all i love the album and think it really was a learning experience and will make the next one(s) that much better.

     

    How do you find the Perth local scene to be going, there seems to be a lot of local events being put on and also a lot of local releases, seems like people be busy?

     

    I'ts really dope to be fair most artists I meet are really supportive of one another and their seems to be gigs going on every weekend if not every other night lately so its great and lots of releases being worked on from what i can see. a great one to get onto which is free is from Aero D a mate of mine from the Down South Crew he just released some tracks as a lost sessions album and its so dope, as is to be expected from him.

     

    Demolition

     

    Any locals we should keep an eye out for?

     

    Ohh so many dope artists some of whom i'm proud to say are good mates I mean there's Cortext i'm sure every Mc in Perth will tell you to look for him he's a beast then you've got cats like Dista, Paulie P, Kogz, Macshane, Marksman Lloyd, Coin Banks and so many more also my good friend and Hype Man/collaborator Jaks is another guy to look for, when he releases something it will no doubt be pure fire.

     

    Are there any shows on the cards now you are back?

     

    Most definitely, I've already hit up the Rosemount for the Moms Spaghetti nights organised by Shaker and performed at a 21st birthday party all within the same week i had a dope time it was really good to be back in front of people doing what i love. it was also good to reunite with Jaks we have a blast on stage every time. I really cant wait to do another show and i'm rehearsing the hell out of my set at the moment so i can really deliver for the crowd.

     

    Have you been working on anything new lately you want to discuss with us?

    Well I have huge plans for my next album and I've started on it already i'm going about it with a whole different approach and its not like anything I've done before i'm feeling confident with all my abilities and will be singing on it as well this time and putting more effort into making music from the ground up, instead of just writing over beats and using the usual structure, i want to really make music and really feel every track i put out. I will say i'm not going to include too many features this time and this album wont be as big ill probably make as many songs as i did previously but ill choose only the best ones and the ones i feel fit well with the theme/style of album i'm creating. I really want to work with a few different producers too depending on the feel of the song as to which producer I choose, but essentially the plan is to spend a lot of time down at Shake Down studios again.

     

    You're an independent hip hop artist, what have you found to be the hardest thing about being an independent artist and releasing an album?

    The hardest thing I guess would be exposure I mean i could make track after track and that's great and there's nothing wrong with having no one ever hear them because i love doing it, but my goals are to perform for people and id like to get to the point where i'm doing some big shows because its what i love doing, so getting the music to the people tends to be the hardest thing for me but i'm slowly working on fixing that problem its all just a learning curve.............and I learn fast.

     

    Is there anyone you want to shout out?

     

    I want to shout out to Rob Shaker hes taught me so much and is always there to help me the second i need it the dudes a warrior, also to the DSC boys the SMA crew and the SBX members that were a part of the album. Also to Shaye Bianchi who co wrote the title track  amongst others with me and really nailed every session we had together her voice is incredible.  I don't want to list everybody because its a crazy list but to any one that was a part of the album or that helped in its conception a massive shout out, from the Mereenie wolf pack to the people in the crowd at the shows to anybody that gave me a lift to the studio or advice on the album MUCH LOVE.

     

    Can you leave us with your top 5 Australian hip hop albums?
