MANU CROOKS – BASTARDS
(JAEN COLLECTIVE / AARON BULL)
He’s back in a big way. Manu Crooks might not have been very active in the last twelve months but he continues to deliver quality over quantity. A unique, unmissable cadence over production that 2013 Yeezus would be proud of. Black and white flashes. Baseball bat swings. Sydney cameos. Everything this guy does is a movie.
SVNO – LIKE WE DO FT J EMZ
SVNO from Planet Vegeta laces this Suga Suga like beat with hauntingly beautiful vocal runs surrounded by family and associates from the extended Polynesian community. ONEFOUR‘s J Emz comes through with another solo feature powerfully lamenting his situation while up in church. This promises to be one of the biggest joints of 2020.
SWISH MUSIC – BLOW
Another cypher / crew cut from QLD collective Swish Music foreshadowing their impending come up. Heap of action packed into less than three minutes, a catchy hook ties together a some sharp verses. Keep an eye out for the Unamii numbers scheme which steals the show.
TKAY MAIDZA – YOU SAD
(JOCELYN ANQUETIL / LUCY HAWES)
Latest single from the AU Queen’s new album, So Sad is full of bright colours and animations perfectly capturing the weird aesthetic of the project. Part Austin Powers, part Alice In Wonderland, special shoutout for the extensive catalogue of vintage mobile phones.
ECO$YSTEM – FESTISH
The latest banger from the 66 Records signee shows him ganged out at Melbourne Hip-Hop HQ Marshall Street Studios flexing his festish for money. Heaps of cool edits and cuts in a style reminiscent of early Young Thug makes this one go even harder than just the audio.
