    Alerts Drops New Suffa Produced Track “Southside” With Purpose

    Adelaide Mc Alerts

    Adelaide emcee Alerts has dropped his new single “Southside” via YouTube tonight featuring Purpose, produced by Suffa of the Hilltop Hoods, mixed by Simplex and featuring cuts by DJ Sanchez. The three-minute offering from the pair gives a full 360-degree insight into growing up in the Southern Suburbs of Adelaide, affectionately known by many as the Southside. Per capita, the Southside of ADL has arguably produced more nationally prominent rappers than anywhere in Australia with the likes of Hilltop Hoods, Delta, The Funkoars, Terra Firma, Prime, Prime, K21, After Hours and Train Of Thought all coming from the South and this track continues the legacy of quality – check below.

    Alerts first came to national attention on Simplex’s debut Obese Records solo album “Audio Biography” through the standout posse cut track Opus Operandi along with Australian legends Delta of Nuffsaid Records and the ever-talented Motions. His memorable show stopping live performance accompanying this song at Home Grown for Da Klinic’s 10th birthday bash in July 2011 at the now defunct HQ Complex main room really put him on notice. The track earned a place in esteemed Sydney DJ’s Shan Frenzie’s memorable Show & Prove mixtape showcasing the best hip hop released that year across the country along with the likes of Trem, Bias B, Drapht, Mantra plus more.

    Alerts would go on to collaborate significantly with Kimence, as well as with a careful selection of Adelaide best including Mnops, Social Change, DJ Dyems and most recently Conseps. It is his stand-alone music however which has really established himself in his own right and led to support slots with the likes of Royce Da 5’9, Ras Kass, Kerser, Kings Konekted, Tech N9ne, Raekwon & Slick Rick, Skrub, Complete, ChillinIT & Wombat, Rates, Delta, Cormega, Spice 1 and Fat Joe since 2015 leading him to headline his own gigs. Having performed all up and down Adelaide, Melbourne and Tasmania, Alerts has built a reputation for himself somewhat the old-fashioned way as a writer and performer from the ground up with a swell of support.

    Back in late March 2018 almost two years ago to the day, Alerts dropped his impressive debut “The Prisoner” track produced by Simplex of Terra Firma. With the captivating visuals to the song executed by Josh Davis & Heath Kerr (Heata) of 1984 Films, the 4:20 minute offering has been played over 42,000 times on YouTube alone – a strong effort for his first independently released, unfiltered track.

    Following a busy period of extensive performances across the country, the in-demand follow up was the three and a half minute “Get It” single released in June 2019, again produced by Simplex. The continuity in production work of the pairing of Alerts and Simplex sounds and feels like a natural fit and served as popular follow up to the breakthrough The Prisoner track. The music video is again Executed by Josh Davis and Heath Kerr of 1984 Films, really showcasing their diverse talents behind the lens. Get It also spawned a recent remix by Simplex, providing a fresh take on a heartfelt track.

     

     

    Stay tuned – more Alerts music on the way soon, from the Southside to nation wide.

  • New Music! Kimence - One View

    Kimence - One View. Available Now For Purchase

    Kimence One View Kimence One View

    ‘One View’ is the debut solo album by Adelaide MC Kimence featuring guest appearances by K21, Simplex, Alerts, Psycho Les, Raph.A.L, Mnops, Monsta Gunjah, Tana Kingi and Jayde Lowther with production by Suffa, Simplex, Trials, Psycho Les, Admin and More.

     

    Kimence has been writing for most of her life. As a young person, writing poetry aided her to rationalize and evolve through troubled times. Since then, Kimence’s relationship with the pen has not only become rewarding, but empowering.

     Testament to Kimence’s knack for networking, One View includes production mastery from some of our country’s best. Including Simplex of Terra Firma, Suffa from Hilltop Hoods, Trials of Funkoars, Admin, Psycho Les of NYC group The Beatnuts. Among the hand-picked vocal contributors are K21, Simplex, Alerts, Psycho Les, Raph A.L., Mnops, Monsta Ganjah, Tana Kingi & Jayde Lowther.

     Title track, ‘One View’ sees Kimence team up with long-time collaborators Simplex and Alerts for a fast paced exchange. Bold horn loops, crashing symbols, and sparkling piano lines together with premium scratching make ’One View’ one of the most hard hitting tracks on the album.

     Retrospective track ‘The Quest’ is set around Kim’s struggles during the making of her album, and the journey of “a female trying to make it in a man’s world”. The haunting Simplex production is driven by heavy beats, and minor guitar loops, emphasizing the stoicism of Kimence’s words. Showing her thematic versatility ‘Hooked Baby’ is a comical number characterized by 70’s guitar loops. The beat, supplied by Admin, came with the key sample which motivated the track’s gold digger theme.

     A big advocate for her local scene, Kimence’s reverence for hip hop music and its positive impact on the community is what drives her. Being a female emcee is widely regarded as a tough gig, but Kimence has earned, and continues to earn the support of industry heavyweights with her tenacity and conviction.

     “I would love to not only see my music enjoyed by others, but to see this album inspire other females who have a passion for Hip Hop to step up and make it happen.” - Kimence

    One View is available now for purchase here.
