3:32 minutes (4.1 MB) Dub Ninja a.k.a. Dan Sommariva-Rojo (drummer from fresh local acts Agency Dub Collective and Organic Intelekt) has unleashed his production skills in a prolific partnership with an 808 and other noise tweaking devices to create expansive electro-dub sonic landscapes.
4:20 minutes (4.93 MB) Organic Intelekt formed in 2004 after late night free-style sessions of 3 oclock Bogey and Rojo D over home-made sampled beats. Tracks came together from these sessions and the pair soon enlisted a bassist, pianist and DJ for some live gigs in Nth. Melbourne. Though now a well rehearsed live band, the format was always intended to replicate the sound of spacious loops in sample based music, as opposed to a busy funk-hiphop crossover.
5:15 minutes (5.36 MB) Cinco Locos is a randomly occuring entity from the tropical verandahs of Darwin with the five crazies; Byron Williams (AKA Toe-Fu from the Herd) on vocals and guitar, Phil Eaton on Bass, Ingrid Smith on Saxophone, Jodie Kell on Trumpet and Justin Moon doing beats and samples.
"Metropolis Mission" is a feature track from Culture Connect's new self titled album.
Culture Connect are a seven-piece live hip-hop outfit originally hailing from Darwin, with half the crew now calling Bris-Vegas home. Featuring four MCs and a band made up of bass, guitar, drums, and samples via MPC and keyboard, the crew bring a dynamic live show that is renowned to get the crowd amped up and dancing while still delivering food for thought.
