Grieves knows what he’s doing. His latest release with Budo, Together/Apart, embodied love and life, while throwing around sophisticated rhythms like they’re going out of fashion. From slow crawling beats to huge explosions, it was an album that had only a couple of misses – but when there’s 16 tracks on it, most would consider that acceptable.
Grieves is another one of the talented artists signed to Rhymesayers, and his latest video is a prime example of why.
“Boogie Man” stares you in the eyes and smirks, as it eerily builds tension. Just wait for that beat to drop.
Aussie hip-hop artist Phrase just released the video for his new single “Apart”! It’s the first single from his brand new LP Babylon, and features Davey Lane (You Am I guitarist), whose vocal parts bring the whole song together. Even though the clip sees Phrase killing his troublesome piñata brother, the song is about as sunny and bright as they come.
Phrase has also put the whole of Babylon up to stream before it’s released, for those of you interested. Well worth a listen, especially as I’ve got a feeling there’s gonna be a few big ones on this release. triple j would be mad not to throw some of these tracks on high rotation.
You can stream the whole album over here, and grab a free mp3 of “Shut Em Down”, provided you part with an e-mail address.
