OUTSIDEIN FESTIVAL

Live Review: Big K.R.I.T + Milwaukee Banks + Preacha - Oxford Art Factory (27.09.15)

"A lot of people, when they come to my shows they get a good understanding of how much I believe in my own music...", Big K.R.I.T told me on the phone a few days prior to starting his debut Australian tour. The Mississippi emcee was to headline Outside In festival and also play a few solo shows around the country, and while he let me know what to expect, I still wasn't prepared for just how much energy and passion he brought to the stage. While I unfortunately missed him at Outside In, I made sure to catch him at Oxford Art Factory the following day, where he was given some great support from Aussie duo Milwaukee Banks and local DJ Preacha.

Photo Gallery: OutsideIn Festival - Manning Bar, Sydney (26.09.15)

The OutsideIn Festival returned to Sydney on Saturday, filling the Manning bar with a diverse range of local and international artists from electronica to hip hop. Some of the highlights included Sable, Cosmo's Midnight, Devin The Dude, Pender Street Steppers, Africa HiTech and headlining the main stage - Big K.R.I.T. It was an incredible day. Check out photos from the event here:

Six Artists Not to Miss at OutsideIn Festival in Sydney

OutsideIn Festival returns to Sydney this September 26 with a mass of great performers. With local and international artists from genres ranging from hip-hop to electronica, the festival is a melting pot of this generation's contemporary sound. So for all you music lovers out there, here are six artists you should definitely not miss at OutsideIn this year.

the AU interview: Cosmo's Midnight (Sydney) on the development of their new live show & a new EP sound!

There's definitely going to be a particular excited buzz in the air this weekend, when Sydney twins Cosmo's Midnight take to the stage at this year's Outsidein Festival at Manning House. Having consistently built themselves up as one of the country's cool fresh contenders in a wave of talented electronic and house producers, the music Cosmo's Midnight have thus far released have demonstrated a love for blending R&B and bright electronic influences with some effortlessly dreamy soundscapes.

the AU interview: Devin the Dude (Houston) on his first Australian tour, career, DJ Screw, and more

Rap-a-Lot Records may not have the same profile the great southern rap empire once had, but that certainly hasn't stopped the label's legacy from flowing freely throughout both the underground and commercial hip hop of today. The Houston-based label played an unmistakable role in lifting "Southern Rap" to the point where it has played a highly influential role in not just the hip hop industry, but the contemporary music world in general. From DJ Screw to OutKast, Devin the Dude to DJ Toomp, you can find a lot that borrows from the south these days, even with performers like Miley Cyrus and that confusing EDM perversion of "trap music". It's then reasonable to call these Southern rap figures originators, and few deserve that title as much as the aforementioned Devin the Dude, who is finally making his way out to Australia as of next week for a five-show tour. I caught up with the man often referred to as "raps best kept secret" to find out more what he has in store for us.

CLOSED Win a double pass to boutique music festival OutsideIn

With their biggest line up to date right around the corner, Sydney festival OutsideIn at Sydney University's Manning House will once again be bringing that refreshing mix of hip-hop, soul, electronica, grime, and house for a full day of good times.

Sable, UV Boi and more added to Outsidein Festival line up!

Outsidein has confirmed its latest additions today, making the Sydney festival definitely one to be on your radar if it's not already. Joining the already announced artists including Devin the Dude, Big K.R.I.T, Total Giovanni and more are some great Australian and international performers who are representative of Outsidein's diverse range of musical tastes!

Electronica and grime acts lead the second line up for OutsideIn Festival

Sydney's exclusive boutique festival OutsideIn has already made waves with a hip hop-heavy first lineup announcement, but now it's time for the slightly more electronica-leaning second announcement which comes with the very welcome news that Red Bull Music Academy will once again host a stage at the event.

the AU playlist: 10 songs we cannot wait to hear at OutsideIn 2015

For fans of hip hop and soul, today's first line up announcement for OutsideIn has been some big news. First, we've got neo-soul luminary Bilal heading down with his 8-piece band in tow, and then we've got two southern rap heavyweights from two very different eras, both obsessed with Cadillacs: Devin the Dude from the 90's, and Big K.R.I.T from the now. In addition to this, we've got nice list of acts that span various styles in electronica, techno, and house, most of which have a very loyal fanbase to place Sydney's most innovative boutique festival once again at the front of the pack of music events happening later this year. While half the line-up is still yet to be announced (20 acts coming, to be exact), we thought we'd look at the current list of names and bring you 10 songs we cannot wait to hear live at Manning House on Satuday 26th September.

OutsideIn announces first line-up for 2015

Following the 'save the date' announcement from OutsideIn, the innovative music festival has today revealed their first-round line up, continuing it's eclectic aesthetic and dedication to carefully curated line ups.
