Stumbled Upon #080 - Netsuke (London, United Kingdom)

the AU interview: Big K.R.I.T (Mississippi) on Australian tour, B.B King, southern hip hop, and more

If Kendrick Lamar is running things on the west, and J Cole is defining the east for a new generation, then the third coast is most definitely held down by Big K.R.I.T. The Meridian, Mississippi emcee took a bit longer than the aforementioned to really make a dent in the mainstream hip hop scene, but once he did he had more than just the utmost respect from his peers, he quickly received the adoration of millions of discerning hip hop fans around the world based off of his strong, thoughtful lyricism and varied style which saw him creating trunk-rattling dirty south hits right alongside poetic tracks like "The Vent" and "Red Eye" across numerous acclaimed mixtapes and two very strong studio albums.

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.

the AU interview: Katie Wighton from All Our Exes Live In Texas (Sydney) talks Young Henry's Small World Festival

Ahead of their performance tomorrow at Small World Festival in Sydney - presented by the fine folks at Young Henry's - we caught up with Katie Wighton from Sydney's All Our Exes Live In Texas to talk about the festival, the best music in Australia right now and we ask the all important question: what makes a great boutique festival?

Stumbled Upon #079 - Small Feet (Stockholm, Sweden)

In our 79th instalment of "Stumbled Upon", we meet Swedish rockers Small Feet, and chat about the Stockholm music scene, their upcoming US tour, and the Aussie links to the debut record From Far Enough Away Everything Sounds Like The Ocean.

the AU interview at BIGSOUND: avaberee (Brisbane) on girl power and their new ep

Genevieve, Aimee and Irena make up the Brisbane trio Avaberee. They chat to the AU about their showcase and future plans.

The trio had a great pump-up prior to their own set "watching Rainbow Chan and Emma Thomson backstage who have killer female vocals." Click through for the full interview...
