It’s time we got back to basics in Canberra. We’re about getting organised, thorough and providing as much help to upcoming hip hop artists as we can. We’re putting on a series of events in order to bring the music back to the capital, and inject some hip hop sensibilities into our town. More opportunities for cats straight out of the bedroom, and those of us who have been hibernating. You’re part of it already, so here’s your chance.
The Next Movement Pt. 5 will be on Thursday, May 23rd, and we’ve got a very talented local line up for you. Please see below:
In a little over 12 months, Stateovmind has released two EP’s, supported numerous touring artists and taken out the 2012 JJJ Unearthed ‘Groovin The Moo’ Canberra slot. Since then, he has returned to the studio and is currently putting the final touches on his second solo EP ‘Better Than Postcards’ which is due for release in a little over a month. Stateovmind always brings a high energy show and is looking forward to joining what should be a memorable TNM Part. 5
B.C is a rapper from the North Coast of N.S.W. With a love of performing, B.C never fails to impress with his energetic, poetic and unpredictable live shows. Despite being a new name to the scene, B.C comes to the mic with the evidence of many years experience. Combine this with his passion and spontaneity, and you’e got yourself one hell of a show.
D’mannik & Tweed
Canberra locals D’mannik (MC) & Tweed (DJ/Backing vocals) have been collaborating on projects since 2011. After spending most of their time producing and recording other Canberra and Melbourne acts, they decided to join forces for a live-show, spending less time in the studio and more time on their own creation. D’mannik and Tweed bring a diverse sound, combining elements of the ol’ school with the sounds of today.
19 year old Topazz has been writing songs since the age of 16. His first release, ‘Stopping the Future’ received a lot of positive feedback, now sitting at over 1100 views on youtube. Topazz is currently working on his debut mixtape, ‘ Entwined’. With influences such as Childish Gambino, Flume and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, it’s safe to say that Topazz has his sights set on great things.
Context will be on hosting duties and Danggers will be on the one’s and two’s throughout the evening. Remember that we will have an open mic from 8.30pm so be sure to jump up and show us all what you’ve got.
