In The Past Beats Inside Me Like a Second Heartbeat, Urthboy has released what may be his most personal (and successful) album yet. The record has been reaping in the praise and his recent preview gigs in Sydney and Melbourne went down incredibly well – perhaps expected from the hip-hop stalwart who has remained a strong part of the genre’s progression and development.
A long-awaited tour from the Elefant Traks head honcho is now creeping up on fans, with a run of national dates locked in for May and June. And, as we’ve seen from previous Urthboy tours, the guests he has linked up with for the tour are equally as impressive as the headliner. In both L-Fresh the Lion and Okenyo are two artists that more and more music fans need to be paying attention two, representing some incredible and promising music still to come. Be sure to roll up to these shows early and catch them doing their thing.
