OZ HIP HOP

Deece 21 Mar 2005 17:18

I know most of you play in rock bands, but I was interested to know how many of you have been to an Oz Hip Hop show?

We are small in numbers, but are starting to really do well with regular spots down fitzroy way and of course Revolver (who have of course supported the cause for years).

I'm the MC half of B wiv Deece, Melb bassed MC/DJ duo, playing around Melb city at the moment. I've been suprised by the love we've been shown, not just from Hip Hop heads, but that from people who have never been to a Hip Hop show before. Most of our gigs have been played to none hip hop people.

Anyway the point of this thread is to find out how aware the Indie Initiative fam is of Oz Hip Hop?

Cheers,
Deece.

If anyones keen to give our tunes a listen we have mp3's at http://www.mp3.com.au/BwivDeece</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

The genre seems to be growing steadily. Not a big fan myself. I think I just can't get my head around the accent and the lyrical content.
I really liked that N.Z group from a while back 'How Bizarre' or whatever it was called. I know it's not Oz Hip Hop. But they did well all over the world with that track and I'm sure their roots where in Hip Hop. I'd like to know what the international potential of Oz Hip Hop is like...maybe the accent would get more attention o/s.

In RE: to an overseas market, Hilltop Hoods are currently packing out shows in the U.K.
I think the accent is hard to grasp at the very begining, only because it sounds so unuseual, but if your a proud Australian, it grows on you very quickly (of course you need to like hip hop to start with) and befor you know it you'll love it.
I'm sure most of you would have caught a TZU set in your travels? To me thats what a live hip hop show is all about. Have you caught them, what did you think?</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

Go to London Deece, forget Melbourne. I wish a 4 piece rock band (and equipment) could be transported as easily as a hip hop duo.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

Hey
I know it's a plug, but I think it has some relevance. There's actually a hip hop vs rock nite at the Belgravia Hotel in Footscray on the corner of Nicholson and Buckley St Footscray. Form of Audio will battle Jika, with the audience voting which they like better. Hip Hop or rock. Also Jika's drummer will battle Form of Audio's deejay and the Mcs from Form of Audio will the singer of Jika. and its on this Sat 26 of March and starts at about 8pm. I think its a wicked idea because too often bands and acts get too segregated with other acts that are very similar, so this is a fresh approach to mixing styles and audiences I think.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

Yea travel wise it is hell easy for a hip hop duo, thats a huge plus....

I'lll have to check out the hip hop V Rock night. I've always thought it would be a great Idea! Great to hear it's down footscray way too, is this a regular thing?</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>
