BOY SODA – 3 LITTLE PIGGIES FT. JORDAN DENNIS & CHARBEL
(Directed by Dexter Lola)
BOY SODA enlists Jordan Dennis and Charbel for his stoner anthem ‘3 Little Piggies’. Proceeding ‘Willy Shakespeare’, the NSW-raised artist gets a dream blunt rotation in the booth for this ensemble. Produced by FINBAR, the track begins with the soulful hook and a narrative-based verse from BOY SODA followed by features from the rapping half of FLY BOY JACK and Wollongong artist Charbel. The smoker’s circle is shot in the trippy music video directed by Dexter Lola. Dropping THE DISTANCE BETWEEN THINKING AND FEELING EP earlier this year, ‘3 Little Piggies’ moves us towards his next body of work YC-TAPE: Vol 1.
POETIK – FOR MY CITY, PT. 2
(Directed by Villz Visionz & POETIK)
Samoa-raised rapper POETIK delivers ‘For My City, Pt. 2’, the sequel to his biggest track to date. Producer Kay Dub lays down the laidback piano keys and hip-hop instrumental for the proud Pasifika artist. Blending his distinct vocal cadence with his 90s West Coast flow, ‘For My City, Pt. 2’ is more proof he makes only timeless music. Releasing the accompanying music video by Villz Visionz and featuring on Lawd Lance’s ‘Guess Who?’, it’s been a busy week for the veteran emcee. The NZ-born artist will release the third instalment of his HAMOFIED EP series on Friday 11 November.
GOLD FANG – BIG NATTY RASTA
Trinidad-born artist Gold Fang crafts a tribute to his homeland with new single ‘Big Natty Rasta’. Produced and co-written by NLV Records label-mate Swick, the infectious track embraces the Sydney-based artist’s Rastafarian background both sonically and thematically. Speaking on ‘Big Natty Rasta’, he says “It’s not you trying to be the clean-cut person, it’s about you embracing who you are – embracing growth and authenticity.” Created by The Sesh, the music video depicts him getting his hair braided before lighting one up and rapping the song in a studio space. Gold Fang has had an incredible 18-months since bursting onto the scene last year on Big Skeez’s ‘Where Yuh From’.
AY HUNCHO & NASA NOVA – RELEVANT
Sydney-based artists Ay Huncho and NASA NOVA release ‘Relevant’ as the last single before their EVIL TWINS EP. The 5-track project is set for release Friday 4 November and culminates the explosive year the Biordi Music artists have had. The triumphant trumpets echo over the drill production of Fiss Bass Beats and BruceBeats, while the two deliver their unremorseful bars. Filmed by Cerne Studios, the ‘Relevant’ music video captures Huncho’s sold-out show at Canberra’s Fiction Club with ‘Free NASA NOVA’ flashing on screen. EVIL TWINS will be the second project from both rappers in 2022, following Huncho’s two-piece Enemy of the State and NASA NOVA’s debut EP For Mine.
MOE. – P’S
(Directed by DKV)
Melbourne-based Moe. delivers his first official single for 2022 and debut music video with ‘P’s’. Mixed and mastered by MixedByTrae, the self-produced track is a lively R&B offering that oozes an early 2000s influence and insanely catchy melodies. Directed, filmed and edited by DKV, the visuals match the naughties vibe as Moe. and his mates drive around grabbing snacks and buffing their car up with flying capabilities. ‘P’s’ embodies and soundtracks the excitement of first getting your licence and cruising around with mates – you’ll have to turn this one up when you stop at the traffic lights.
YNG MARTYR – OVERTHINKING
(Directed by Josh Davis)
YNG Martyr chooses between money and love on his latest single ‘Overthinking’. Marking his second release via Warner Music after ‘IT HAPPENED’, the Canberra-based artist performs his heartbroken and introspective melodic raps over the guitar strings and trap instrumental of Logan M and Tasker. He describes the track as “a crossroads type song centred on the internal decision between love and purpose.” Directed by Josh Davis, the short mob-style music video depicts a rise to luxury and simultaneous descent to loneliness. The First Nations artist has come a long way from rap battling in COD lobbies, spending his time this year at festivals like This That, Golden Shores and an upcoming live performance at Spilt Milk.
