Live Review: Horrorshow + Tuka + Left. - The Gov, Adelaide (05.04.15)

My Easter Sunday wrapped up at The Gov, where Sydney's brought their stripped back 'Listen Close Tour' to an end. Considering the Adelaide show on the tour wasn't a part of the original run of dates, it was fantastic to see that the gig had sold out tonight. Supported by Tuka and Left., the night saw three acts who are normally known for some huge hip-hop and electro/soul sounds, mix it up and present their music in a raw, inventive fashion.

the AU Weekend Gig Guide: Easter Long Weekend Edition!

Live Review: One Day Tour - Enmore Theatre (19.09.14)

Think of all the great hip-hop collectives you know of which have put out an album as one, from Wu-Tang to The Diplomats to Dungeon Family. The dynamic that makes collectives like these work so well in the studio is developed through years of constant collaboration and refinement, so that when that day comes when the group is set to drop an entire album, the fans see shades of each artist that can only be brought out when they are part of a team. This is what happened on Mainline, the debut LP by Sydney's One Day crew, placing it as one of the more refreshing hip-hop albums of the year, with a dynamic not often seen on the Australian circuit.

Violent Soho, Sia, Courtney Barnett and more nominated for 2014 Carlton Dry AIR Awards!

Album Review: One Day - Mainline (2014 LP)

Spit Syndicate, Horrorshow , Jackie Onassis and Joyride all have a few things in common. Firstly, they all hail from Sydney's inner-west. Secondly, they are all a huge part of the hip hop scene in Australia and actively part of its development. Finally, they are all members of the clique known as One Day and - to the joy (and perhaps surprise) of many hip hop fans - have just released their first album together.
