NEW WAVE – 6GS
Made up of Moses, TAKTiX and KiD LaZE, the rising trio New Wave share their new single ‘6gs’. Produced by KBeats and TAKTiX, the Melbourne-based group sample Kirk Franklin’s ‘Revolution’ and deliver an upbeat trap offering. The three emcees take turns bragging on the extra 0’s they’ve earned since their debut last year on ‘Reasons’. Both as a group and solo artists, New Wave have dropped multiple tracks this year including their HoodBars episodes and ‘Rather Be’, a sample-heavy drill flip. The ‘6gs’ music video is shot by 3k video director ZacoBro, who captures the group with fast-paced edits and animations.
TRIPLE ONE – PETER RABBIT
(Directed by Martin Guilfoyle)
Sydney-based Triple One arrive with their new single ‘Peter Rabbit’, a carefree and garage-inspired pop-rap release. The track features production from the group’s very own Billy Gunns, frequent collaborator 18YOMAN and Pokari and Nerdie from 1300. Following their last sold-out tour in April, they’re now leading a National Treasure Hunt with prizes including merchandise and VIP packages to A Dangerous Method Tour in November. Racking up over five years experience in the scene, a music video directed by Martin Guilfoyle is almost essential to every release by the alt-rap quartet. Speaking on ‘Peter Rabbit’, Marty Bugatti says “it’s about chasing distractions so that you don’t have to deal with reality.”
CHANEL LOREN – ROLLIN’
(Directed by Angie Osman)
Chanel Loren continues to claim 2022 as her own with laidback latest single ‘Rollin’. Off the back of her previous three releases ‘Playlist’, ‘Disappear’ and ‘Some Other Time’ featuring Arz, the Sydney-based artist’s delicate vocals skim across the stripped back and soulful production by James Angus. With Chanel’s lyricism capturing her version of self care, ‘Rollin’ is “about the beauty of being vulnerable in relationships.” Directed and produced by Angie Osman, the music video acts out the track’s ideal setting and adds to its understated blue feeling. Four tracks deep into her debut year and Chanel has solidified herself as one of R&B’s most exciting and consistent new acts.
CHARBEL – GARDENIA’S THEME
(Directed by Charbel & Jack Voegt)
Wollongong-raised artist Charbel drops visuals to ‘Gardenia’s Theme’, the introduction to his July-released debut mixtape. Produced by Finbar Stuart and Riley Hilder, the track is a jazzy hip-hop cut that leads listeners through a world of psychedelics and puppets. Directed by Charbel and Jack Voegt, the ‘Gardenia’s Theme’ music video follows his train journey from man to puppet. The visuals are taken from the accompanying short film released alongside Gardenia Ave. Including previous releases ‘B4 DA SUN’ and ‘WHO DAT’, as well as featuring Agung Mango on ‘GAMEOVER!’, the 7-track project remains one of the best full-length releases in 2022.
JAECY – CITY LIGHTS (ROLLIN’ ROLLIN’) FT. RAF RECEIPT
(Directed by Kev Blindside)
Jaecy reveals visuals for ‘City Lights (Rollin’ Rollin’)’ featuring Raf Receipt, the last entry on his Movin Groovin mixtape. In their second official collaboration, following last year’s ‘NICE TRY’, Jaecy and Raf link once more for an Afro-infused R&B and rap cut. Via The Area Movement, the track features production by Déjà Miru and warm melodies by both of the Sydney-based artists. Directed by Kev Blindside, the ‘City Lights’ music video begins with footage from a live performance before slow-fading between some smoother shots. These visuals arrived the same time as Jaecy’s freestyle on Triple J’s ‘Bars of Steel’.
HAUNTZ – IN GOD WE TRUST
Hauntz delivers the music video to the title track of debut EP titled In God We Trust. The Sydney-based rapper provides a powerful ode to overcoming adversity and finding purpose in life. ‘In God We Trust’ is preceded by a handful of tracks released throughout 2021 and early ‘22 including ‘Skyfall’ and ‘Need Somebody’. The accompanying video clip is directed by Ideal Productions and was filmed in Woodberry, his first stomping ground and “the place I associate with both the best and worst memories you could imagine.” The newly-released project IGWT is 7 tracks long and features ADHD and Lee Monro.
