PROFECY: THE RELEASE OUT NOW (DIGITAL ONLY)

Artwork

Growing up in the northeastern NSW town of Lismore, Profecy had little to no exposure to the ever-changing Hip Hop scene of Australia, through which he developed his own unique sound by trial and error. Profecy then relocated to Brisbane in 2010 where he completed and released his debut EP ‘Let the Music Play’, which gave him exposure amongst the larger Hip Hop community and enabled him to perform alongside some of Hip Hop’s best selling artists including Thundamentals, Illy and M-Phazes.

In 2013 Profecy gained positive recognition from music critics nationally when he dropped his ten track mixtape ‘The Arrival’. Now in 2014, Profecy is back with his forthcoming EP ‘The Release’ set to drop as a digital only release through Obese Records Distribution August 29thexhibiting the constant search for the witty wordplay and startling beat.

Walk With Me encompasses youthfulness in the most adept way possible; the anger, the unrequited emotions, the frustration and bliss and the bittersweetness of life. Walk With Me is bass heavy, but still carrying a summer-breeze sense to it.

Profecy, already receiving positive feedback from the media, is quite hopeful to receive a warm welcome back with ‘The Release’.

“Honest rhymes coupled with killer vocals.” - Maggie Collins, Triple J

“Quite honestly one of the finest Australian hip hop tracks I’ve heard in some time, with stand out production. Definitely an artist to watch.”Mark Dragham, TheAUReview

Cooking with Caustic: From Mercury to Pluto, out 18.07.14

Hailing from the artistically bountiful Blue Mountains come Cooking with Caustic, a soul/hip hop/funk collective unlike any other.

Cooking with Caustic consists of core members Caustic (beats, keys and production), DJ Cost (turntables), Jarv Benaud (bass), Stephen Noble (saxophone), and Marc Brown (trombone).

Though they’ve been jamming for years; first meeting whilst working in hospitality together, From Mercury to Pluto is the group’s debut LP. The album pays homage to the classic sounds of 90’s hip hop, as well as focusing on big beat, groove, and turntablism.

“Rather than an album being about one vocalist, this is about a collection of voices that work together but provide the listener with variety too. We also have a focus on instrumentals, where turntables and musicianship can come to the fore.”Caustic

Guest vocalists on the LP include Queen B, Blackjack Davey, Madame Wu (Madame Wu and Elise Graham), Mikoen (Daily Meds, Reverse Polarities), P.Smurf (Daily Meds, Reverse Polarities), Mute MC (Reverse Polarities, Mute X Roleo), Tenth Dan (Big Village), Charlotte Craib (Rumpunch), Broken Thought Theory, Ev Jones (Jones Jnr), and Loose Wayne.

“A lot of us are kind of science/music/cartoon nerds. Hence all the sci-fi samples and references.
Voice samples are mostly from old radio shows, there’s something awesome about those old accents.”
Caustic

The track ‘Journey from the Inside Out’ features Mute and Blackjack Davey, explores themes of birth and life’s journey in a sombre fashion, juxtaposed with its cartoon-like production. With its 50’s doo-wop backing vocal performed by the band, the heavily swung beat and double bass groove gives the song a lurchy feel.
‘About to Fly’ features Tenth Dan, Madame Wu, Ev Jones, and Queen B. Lyrically the track is about doing the things you love, cos you only live once”. Though uplifting overall, the track’s minor key combined with the melancholy of the lyrics gives the ‘About to Fly’ further depth. “There’s a bird call throughout which was recorded from my garden. It’s a wattle bird, they make that call a lot in the morning, so it’s a real waking up in the mountains sound for me.” – Caustic

‘No One’ is an instrumental track speckled with vocal samples which include the words “no one”. The track got its origins from a pitched down guitar sample taken from a Two Toes track, and a Queen B vocal sample from a 2005 recording. The beat; constructed from MPC sequenced beats, is layered with live drums and percussion.

Possessing a cohesiveness and maturity rarely found in a debut album, Cooking with Caustic have come to define their own unique brand of music in the form of From Mercury to Pluto.

“Music’s a pretty compulsive creative outlet for us; we fill most of our time with it. The band’s a big creative family.”Caustic

The D.Y.E: Sorry for the Stickers EP, out 13.06.14

Introducing The D.Y.E. A three man hip hop group from Melbourne’s north, hell bent on getting their music to the people.
Made up of DJ Marshall, MHz and Slam Master D, The D.Y.E already have two mix-tapes to their name. The debut EP entitled Sorry for the Stickers, references the infamous D.Y.E stickers, which any local could tell you, have been plastered all over Melbourne.

With their energetic party sound reminiscent of J5 or Beastie Boys; The D.Y.E pride themselves on being masters of the live show. The EP’s general vibe is custom-made for a festival crowd, with plenty of call-and-response and catchy hooks.

‘Lighters in the Sky’ is a track about the ongoing rejection aspiring artists encounter when trying to secure shows and opportunities.  In this song, the trio maintain the idea of being able to play a huge show one day, seeing lighters in the sky is what keeps them driven. With a sample from Bedouin Soundclash, the track features vibrant vocals from Melbourne jazz/soul singer Mo.

Watch video clip for first single ‘Lighters in the Sky’ featuring Mo here.

No Matter the Weather’ is a syncopated, beat driven track featuring metal-core turned blues singer Emil on the hook. The lyrics reflect The D.Y.E’s rain or shine mentality to performing, determined to deliver no matter the weather.

‘Front to the Back’ is a traditional call and response crowd-pleaser with a strong emphasis on cutting samples. The track demonstrates the diversity of DJ Marshall’s samples arsenal; featuring pop culture references from Ferris Bueller and Shepard Fairey, to original recordings from 1970’s news-radio broadcasts.

“The D.Y.E are here to entertain.  There are 10 year olds out there that have a tighter flow than me, but they ain’t got the presence or style to back it up.” – The D.Y.E
