Prepare to get your mind blown when Melbourne MC Eloquor [Donny Pelsoczy] unleashes his third effort, From The Oceans Of Karana, this month. A ‘concept record’ in the truest sense of the word, this is one epic baby that is literally akin to an offspring rather than a mere piece of music in more ways than one.


“I’ve got a five-year-old son and I also have a one-and-a-half-year-...

The release of a new Australian hip hop album is not a groundbreaking proposition in 2012. Seeing an entire rack of local albums at JB Hi-Fi or finding out that an Aussie hip hop album has hit the top of the ARIAs is not out of the ordinary. In 2002 however the idea of homegrown hip hop culture becoming a profitable industry was still out of reach. That all changed in large part thanks to one...

Melbourne's Illy is currently halfway through a capital cities tour with Sydney crooners Spit Syndicate and Elefant Trak's newest signing, Sietta. Adelaide, Hobart and Sydney have all hosted the treble of acts thus far with Melbourne doing so later this month. Despite this industriousness, Illy has had to overcome more than his fair share of medical dramas in the weeks preceding the tour....

‘Maturity’ ain’t normally the first word you’d think to associate with Adelaide hip-hop rascals Funkoars, but on new album The Quickening DJ Reflux aka Dan Yates insists the lads have had a lot of growing up to do and that it certainly shows. If first album Who’s Your Step Daddy was the endless party and second album ‘The Hangover’ was pretty self-explanatory, then think of The Quickening as...

Adelaide-born hip-hop collective Funkoars, consisting of Mr. Trials, Uncle Sesta, Sketchy Hons and DJ Reflux, are some funny dudes. 


Once asked where the name came from, they replied “Funkoar is the dreg of society. It is the funnel in which all morals and conscious are drained into the river Styx.” Heavy. I wouldn’t go that far, they’ve done some pretty cool things – toured...

So if you're like 99% of the population, you've been wondering if the Funkoars had been abducted by aliens over the Adelaide Hills 12 months ago. Well, fear not! We've got some good news.


The illustrious Funkoars have been hard at work on their latest Full Length Album The Quickening and Beat have been lucky enough to score an exclusive look at the full tracklist for the album...

Drapht's latest album The Life Of Riley has unsurprisingly been one of the biggest local releases of the year, and now we get to hear the record in its full capacity a the MC heads out on the Party, Party, Party Tour.


Life Of Riley is so far the only album by an Australian artist to debut at number one on the ARIA charts this year, and has undergone heavy radio rotation ever...

How did you boys form, how long have you been producing and performing together and what was the first track you ever produced?

Scott Free: I started out collaborating with another MC, NKS of Madizm, and a few friends of mine hit me up about another MC friend of theirs who recently made the move from New Zealand and had a bit of talent. So we got together, laid down some...

As more time passes Vents Uno becomes more agitated with society and all the bullshit that it has to offer. A few years on from his brilliant debut the follow up has a lot of pressure to succeed from a loyal fan base and I’m sure from the artist himself. This release slams from start to end and should see Vents elevate himself to one of the bigger names in Australian music, perhaps not Hoods...
