speak of the devil

Post by earthloop » Thu Jan 05, 2012 6:45 pm

I just had to post this. I am just loving this track...and the video. (edit...please wait for the usual adverstisement to finish ... :x )

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tb_Ogb0zzhA

Once I played it I haven't been able to stop. Play it twice and you will be hooked. Notice how they have gathered some of the local kids off the streets together to perform in the clip...showing how talented our Aussie kids are. :D :D :D :D

P.S. Hermitude are fantastic. Check out their other vids on UTube

Aussie Hip Hop...is there a distinctive Aussie style? Apart from the accent of course. In the past I have not been a big fan of hip hop outside of wonderful artists like Lauren Hill (whatever happened to her?) and similar artists. In recent years though I have slowly warmed to hip hop produced by Australian artists such a The Hilltop Hoods, The Herd, Bliss n Esso, Pez and Drapht... there are lots more!

I have become interested in hip hop as made in Australia because it is very much about social comment and rooted in local culture. The big difference between American hip hop and Australian hip hop seems to be that there is no emphasis on race. Most hip hop artists here are white...an interesting thing which invites some comment re the meaning of hip hop culture generally.

Just thought I would say this to add some clarity to why I posted a hip hop track link here. In Australia it seems that there is a connection between the (very musical) styles made here and earlier American styles as demonstrated by Lauren Hill/The Fugees etc.

Cheers (and a belated happy new year :D )

drugs. Of course, one might say.

Apparently she's back, and getting good reviews for touring with a show playing the entire An Education album, which is pretty baller, tbh.

the meaning of hiphop culture has always been unity, at least that is how we understand it here in america. those who say otherwise have been those
trying to use the power that hiphop generates to make one listen for the sake of dividing people. division is decidedly not hiphop and has never been so from day one.

nice vid

The video/choreography style was awesome.

Yeah that is how I have always seen hip hop. I think that is what I see in hip hop here. At least that is what I was trying to say :lol:
