There’s little doubt GREMLNS are one of the hottest upcoming crews in the Southern Hemisphere. With viral viewership online, international press attention, national radio play and an insane live show, this barely-out-of-high-school collective from Melbourne’s South-East have the potential to take their bedroom raps to a global audience. Very quickly. And this latest instalment, the TWO ZERO EP from crew member GS Phantom, represents a significant step forward in that journey – one we’re excited to premiere exclusively through AUD’$.
Phantom (real name Subuot Latita) like many of his close circle, was born and raised in South Sudan before emigrating to Australia. It is a fusion of these cultures that gives us the artist we see today; talented, hardworking and with a noticeable air of finesse. Inspired by the likes of Lil Yachty (whose Teenage Emotions album drops the same day, not by coincidence), Rich The Kid and Famous Dex, Phantom is fast beginning to sit amongst those he considers idols.
The TWO ZERO project (tracked, mixed and mastered entirely by himself) represents a coming of age for Latita; with the title capturing the fact that he’s only just reaching 20 years of age. Born out of a desire to put together a complete project, GS Phantom manifests the same manic work ethic that has birthed the new generation Atlanta trap stars, with an uncanny ability to knock out brand new, well-rounded tracks in less than half an hour – “I’m just tryna’ get this money mane, gone keep grinding and ain’t gone stop no matter what!”
The 11-track release, stacked with features from his cohort including Kaè and Lord Levi, brings a range of unique energies together. Rather than being a thematic body of work, the project captures a diversity of sound, all built upon the millennial mentality of pure enjoyment; “Just have fun with what you love doing the most. Whether it be music, sport, painting… you don’t always have to be 100% serious all the time!” says Phantom when asked what message he’s trying to get across.
TWO ZERO is a project that will catapult GS Phantom to the forefront of not only his own crew, but of the emerging global generation of Australian Hip-Hop stars. Check out the private stream below, available exclusively through AUD’$, and cop the release tomorrow when it goes live on all digital stores and streaming services alongside Phantom’s brand new website at gsphantom.com.
