Louie Knuxx – Wasted Youth Free Download

Leave a comment

One of my favourite albums out of NZ ever, any genre. Hard copies of this sold out years ago so Louie is giving it away in prep for his new album Funeral For Two (I think…I might have made that name up though…)

Everything coming out of Jay this year has been dope. Cinematic soundscapes coupled with someone who can verbalise melancholy and hopelessness without coming across like a cockhead or teenage girl.

This is burner of a track off their new album, out today.

Interestingly Louie Knuxx drops part of a line that he used when he was first telling me about how I didn’t really understand how good R.E.S. are.

New album is available on monday. It’ll probably be the best recording from the southern hemisphere re; raps this year.
Reference the same ‘pac line that Louis Knuxx did last year..

And the Interview

I forgot to ask why the first track* promo-ing anything he does has a tupac reference. Wanna answer that cuz?

is just a co-incidence, dont think theres any on the new shit. I used to be a big pac fan but couldnt listen to his music for bout 6 years after i got out of jail cos thats all i heard and was surrounded by dudes that wanted to be pac.

*beat from fly, lyric reference in “This Summer”

Breakin Wreckwordz main man in CHCH comes through again. Kid is amazing. 22 on the beats is, I’m assuming, Scratch22 of yesteryear.

One of the best out of New Zealand at the moment, even if they do listen to too much UB40)

These guys dropped this yesterday
Download Red Eye Society – Hush

It’s pretty heavy, almost on some throwback sound but not quite.

New album out soon.

tourettes – Out of Water (clip)

Leave a comment

Tourettes is a bit of an anomaly for me. I don’t often like rap that comes with the pretensions of poetry. Nor people that spout forth their ideals with vitriol. Somehow he’s always got a pass from me though because I really like what he has to say/rap. And he does it with an economy of phrase that’s not present enough in a lot of music. Never one to follow in another’s path, the beat and the raps are on their own shit, don’t expect it to sound like any other NZ/Melb(currently residing) MC.

I think He’s got more stuff coming out soon, if not I’m sure we’ll be trying to put him on a show again soon.
