KID SELZY: DIAL M FOR MELBOURNE, OUT 04.04.20

Almost 4 years since Melbourne underground rapper Kid Selzy released The Creepshow LP he now returns with the highly anticipated follow up album Dial M for Melbourne.

Themes range from stories of St. Kilda locals, to the effects anti-depressants and being homeless. There are also songs about everyday life and how Kid Selzy views the world. Listening to the vivid images he paints with words the audience is able to see the world though his perspective.

The Dial M for Melbourne LP release has only two collab tracks as Selzy wanted people to buy the album for artist, not the guests appearing on it. GargoyleGutz Illuminate feature on a banging posse cut and Hospa the Horrible drops a verse about a binge. The rest of the album is a personal journey into Selzy‘s life and thought processes.

Production for the album is handled by EndemicTorntsIllumiateBonezy 2 BladezWikPaddy-OKid Selzy and more.
Dial M for Melbourne will be released on April 4th through Selzy‘s independent label Frank Castle Entertainment co-owned by a.DD with distribution handled by Obese Records.
