For those unaware, One Direction are a teenage British boy band who are just the right combination of good looks and shitty pop music to seduce the hearts of young girls worldwide, and just young enough for Kony to kidnap. They released an album called Up All Night (which has dominated charts worldwide) and got away with it because of their young, clean...

In the two and a half decades since his thermonuclear breakthrough with pioneering gangsta rap outfit N.W.A., you’d be hard pressed to articulate a time period where Ice Cube has resembled anything close to creatively dormant. At the age of 21, Cube had jettisoned from N.W.A. and released yet another landmark LP in AmeriKKKa’s Most Wanted – the first instalment of one of the finest...

One of the West Coast’s most beloved hip-hop stalwarts, DJ Quik has just announced a whirlwind tour of Australia – his first appearance in the country after a career spanning more than twenty years. 


A prolific producer with a discography that spans eight full-length records (hence the moniker, Quik), his continued endurance on the hip-hop scene as an MC, instrumentalist and...

Whilst not entirely neglecting rap’s traditionally favourite topics – pussy, weed and guns – Immortal Technique also perceptively commentates on issues ranging from class struggle to media deception to conspiracy theories, often spitting venom upon the government and appealing to a paradigm shift amongst the social consciousness towards intelligence, information and inquisitiveness....

With the ingredients of a record label’s wet dream, Yelawolf continues in the grand white-trash tradition of mentor and label boss Eminem. Cementing his persona, the Alabama wordsmith has a thick country twang and tattoos. After several acclaimed mixtapes, Yela adapts his formula to the grand stage that has birthed the likes of 50 Cent on his Shady Records maiden voyage, titled...

Produced by Fatboy Slim, this hip hop hoe-down by UK up-and-comers Rizzle Kicks blends Wham-like pop guitar samples with dancehall beats, banjo and upbeat yet bluesy backing vocals. This kind of high energy, tongue-in-cheek rap follows on from The Streets and seems idiosyncratically British – it has more in common with Supergrass and The Specials than Snoop Dogg. But anyway, it’s...

Just when you thought all the beats were used up, here come these two wise guys, with their slow rocking boom crunch opera, to show you something different. Doing so much with so little is a wicked kind of genius. The Blades of Glory sample they chunk into the otherwise straight-faced gangsta rap flow is kind of hilarious, and I didn’t even like that movie. It’s just a spastic little...

“Real name, no gimmicks,” he said in one of hip hop’s great opening salvos. With that Obie Trice announced himself to the world. The fact that this introduction was being facilitated by a titan, in the form of Eminem, didn’t hurt either. Add to that the fact that his emergence on Shady Records coincided with the release of the blockbuster 8 Mile and the unleashing of 50 Cent. Whether that...

So then, what's the band name and what do you 'do' in the band?

I'm Adam Sait, one half of electronic duo Killbot Kindergarten. I produce beats, play synths and sing when I'm forced to.


What do you reckon people will say you sound like?...
