According to an unidentified source, holidays have been brought forward to put us all out of our collective misery. Actually, that’s what we thought in our house last night, when we danced in the kitchen late on a Sunday evening. And, when the Wu Tang hair brush mic comes out, you just know that Monday is coming for you. With a vengeance. This week’s new music is dedicated to you. Bloody Monday.
1200 Techniques: Flow Is Trouble feat. Ghostface Killah
Last month, Australian hip hop legends 1200 Techniques (DJ Peril, MC N’fa and Kemstar), dropped a huge track featuring Ghostface Killah from the notorious (and our firm family favourite) Wu-Tang Clan. We’re loving the video filmed on the streets of Melbourne, including Fitzroy, my brother, my hood.
There are a few things I love about this; a. Peril and N’fa were a huge part of my clubbing days in the 90s, and I love that they succeeded beyond Carousel nighteclub b. Ghostface Killah from Wu Tang Clan and c. the video captures some of Melbourne’s best street art.
Get ye to the single launch happening at The Workers Club on Thursday 3 December. Tickets on sale now.
Tiggs Da Author: Georgia
Southern hemi Summer is coming. It can be heard and felt in this snappy song.
Tiggs Da Author is a particularly individual proposition. Born and raised in Tanzania before moving to London at the age of eight, 25 year old multi-faceted rapper, singer, songwriter, and producer Tiggs Da Author (nee Adam Simon) is another eclectic soul graduate, who I would easily compare to the likes of Pharrell Williams and Janelle Monae.
Savages have unveiled new track ‘T.I.W.Y.G.’, an unflinching musical attack from the band’s highly anticipated second album, Adore Life, which comes out on 22 January.
LDRU: Keeping Score
It’s true. This song appeared on a Tune. post from a few weeks ago, but LDRU has since released the accompanying video, and the song has gone bah-nanas.
Peaches: I Mean Something feat. Feist
Watch the raucous new video from Peaches for I Mean Something – she’s teamed up with ‘advanced style’ burlesque legends, filmmaker Silas & Feist. Peaches is an expert in eye opening. Lovers of garish fashions won’t be disappointed.
Innerbloom is lifted from the forthcoming Bloom, the second album from Australian trio, RÜFÜS. They’ve almost wrapped their massive, sold out, world tour; and their debut album, Atlas has just gone platinum.
