Ciecmate & Maggot Mouf are Known Associates.
For over a year these 2 contemporaries have locked themselves in the studio once a week to diligently shape and craft a new offering, “Ashes to Dust”. Ciecmate & Maggot Mouf trade verses back and forth, bar-for-bar in an epic team effort that interlocks prose and sonic aesthetics seamlessly. The joint delivery puts forth a tag-team approach reminiscent of a classic Hip-Hop style that has not yet permeated Australia’s often individually focused scene. The insane turntable prowess of Dj No Name Nathan (2 x ACT DMC Champion) stitches the release together, officially making Known Associates a triple threat.
