BABYFACE MAL – YA RAB
(Directed by Jordan Blanch)

Melbourne’s Babyface Mal drops ‘Ya Rab’ as his first new music since The Crib Vol. 2. The 66 Records signee quickly became one of the biggest break-out stars of 2021 with his collaboration alongside Nerve on ‘Superhero’ and solo records like ‘Daughters & Sons’. Dancing across the dynamic drums with bilingual bars, the production by Aywy and Sid Mallick utilises familiar sonics from Mal’s Egyptian Arabic heritage. Coinciding with the track, the music video brings this inspiration to life with visuals directed by Jordan Blanch. After a few months off replenishing the vault, Babyface Mal is back in full effect.

KYE – BOSSIN’
(Directed by Triana Hernandez)

KYE unveils her most energetic moment yet with new single ‘Bossin’. Almost a year since the release of her debut Good Company EP, the new track is the Zimbabwean-born artist’s first single of 2022. Produced by Styalz Fuego and Rudy Sandapa, the UK-garage influenced track nods to KYE’s upbringing before moving to Australia. The music video, directed by Triana Hernandez, evokes the club and dance essence of  ‘Bossin’ with kitsch 2000s visuals. KYE has also announced her Club Bossin’ tour that will visit Melbourne, Sydney, and Brisbane, and showcase a lineup of all-female talent.

RENZI – SLIDE FT. JAECY & MOSES
(Directed by Kev Blindside)

Western Sydney artist Renzi enlists Jaecy and Moses on ‘Slide’ from his debut project. Mixed and mastered by Dejamiru, the second track from Paintin’ Pictures showcases Renzi’s signature and unique vocal inflections over punctual trap production by PAX and Rizzo. Featuring Bankstown’s Jaecy and Moses from rising Melbourne group New Wave, the two emcees rap across the reverberating electric guitar and drill-influenced 808s and drums. Directed by Kev Blindside, the ‘Slide’ music video unites the trio to perform part of the record in front of three white luxury cars. Renzi’s fresh 9-track project features one other guest verse from JAY6 on the previously-released ‘Paid The Price’.

KHI’LEB – CHEQUES FT. CREED THA KID
(Directed by Joshua Ratahi)

Two of Brisbane’s youngest stars, Khi’leb and Creed Tha Kid, team up on ‘Cheques’. Following ‘Where The Food At?’, the Elefant Traks signee’s second single of the year strikes just over a month away from his upcoming debut EP. ‘Cheques’ is a bass-heavy offering about making a name for yourself, guided by the production of Liam Thomas and MESS. The short visuals place Khi’leb and Creed in a fast food restaurant for the music video directed by Josh Ratahi. The young artist will share his first EP titled Project in the Suburbs on September 30, almost four years since his debut track.

DENNI, CHAZZA, GREELEY & LACHY HAMILL – 1 TO 100
(Directed by Lachy Hamill)

Chazza links with Denni, Greeley and Lachy Hamill on ‘1 TO 100’. Fresh off his latest project Heard Mentality, the new collaboration from UK rapper Chazza and the three Tasmanian artists strikes as a result of his recent travels throughout Australia. Over the Latin guitar strings and punchy trap drums by Lariken, Denni sings the melodic hook and divides the barrage of verses from Chazza, Greeley and Lachy. From reacting to plenty of music videos via his YouTube channel, Chazza makes his debut on the Tasmanian-based channel THCtv for ‘1 TO 100’. Shot at Alchemy Bar & Restaurant in Launceston, the visuals are also directed, filmed and edited by Lachy Hamill.

YOUNG6IX – SPIN IT FT. NAMZ60
(Directed by Adz.mov)

Young6ix and Namz from Section60 connect on ‘Spin It’. Following his breakthrough return on ‘On My Back’ and his recent JD sponsorship, the Mount Druitt rapper is injecting a youthful and raw antidote to the Australian drill scene. Produced by i.amsolo, the forbidding track sees tearing bass-lines and drums welcomingly interrupt infectious verses from the two rappers. Directed by Adz.mov with Navsrevenge as DOP, the flashing ‘Spin It’ music video finds 6ix, Namz and everyone else dressed head to toe in Hoodrich. Young6ix is gearing up for his debut EP set for release sometime this year.
