GALLVS - The Flood     Hip Hop 13/06/2019
Born Mo Yousif, GALLVS is yet another shining example of the beauty and artistry that grows from immigration in this country.
‘The Flood’ starts with GALLVS leaning into the influence of his hip hop hero Kid Cudi – letting his melodic vocals float over smoky piano keys. However, the song takes a sharp turn early on, quickly morphing into a more atmospheric boom, as industrial beats, future bass chords, and GALLVS’ own barking vocals take over.

Talakai - Me You Them Us     Hip Hop, Electronic 13/06/2019
Heavy flows, knockout punchlines and razor-sharp wordplay Talakai hits heavy featuring dark beats and anthemic hooks. Australian grime's finest.
Me You Them Us is the accumulative flex that has been 10 years in the making. “The track started as a dissection of the world universe, u-verse, i-verse, us verse and that formed the basis for the hook. We were going to sit on this but the crowd reaction when I played it on tour with Chill was f***ing mental.”

Hip Hop infused - mellow beats. The song fiercely expresses this idea that so many of our cultures, philosophies and religions all share the same message. Love; yourself, others, the animals and the world around. There are so many similarities in the stories of the old world that we think are much more than mere coincidence.

Celebrating my Egyptian heritage has always been at the forefront of what I do, but ‘Gold In My Veins’ allowed me to do so in a way that let me explore a new lane of sounds I was yet to touch, inspired by the bounce and grooves of early 2000s Pharrell and Neptunes produced music I grew up with.

LEVZZ - GO 2     Hip Hop, RnB, Hip Hop, Atmospheric 01/06/2019
I've been making music all my life. One of my first toys was a toy guitar
My Girlfriend would always ask "why don't you ever make a song for me?" My answer was "I can't force a feeling for a song it has to come from within" and I feel that the song shows that. The aggression mixed with the bright sounds was how I felt when making the song.
