Again this pairing have come through with the goods.
Jay still miles ahead of 99% of rappers in Australia and NZ and Netts putting out yet another superbly polished piece of music.

Off his free release ep (link is on the blog somewhere) this first single is nice. Beat by thus cuz Nettsmoney and he’s nailed the stoner vibe perfectly. Video suits it to a tee.

I Haven’t listened to this yet so i can’t comment on the quality aside from Mr DNA got a couple beats off Nettsmoney so those will be nice.
Mr DNA is a local Melbourne kid, I think he’s responsible for the HIpHop nights at RATS and he was good enough to book Young Leans first headline show.

Jay Roacher + Nettsmoney

These two are seem like they’re on the cusp of becoming a force to be reckoned with in the Australasian hiphop scene. Everything they’re involved in together has been of a calibre that far exceeds their non-existent budget’

Jay is, by my count, one of the best rappers in either country at the moment (even if he does focus a bit much on battling) with the right balance of technical wordplay and pop sensibilities to still sound good. And polite enough to let Riz Kid go first on this one.

Melbourne based Nettsmoney has a history of crafting solid beats for NZ artists, including a lot on the Breakin Wreckwordz label but seems to be on a bit of a creative bent of late, choosing to create hiphop beats that don’t sound like hiphop beats.

Netts on the video edit for this one too.

Only complaint is my same one about 360/pez yelawolf/rittz doing tracks together. Is there really a point in a guest/collab when they sound similar?

Whether it’s witch-house, a lex luger beat, something out of the Hypnotize Minds camp or just random stuff showing up in my feed, I’m getting a lot of ominous sounding music coming my way. Stuff with the aesthetic of a horror movie score.
Here Nettsmoney goes the Slowed and Thowed route to add some menace to a Jay Roacher track

Jay Roacher – Dance Dance Revolution

Jay Roacher (nee Jaberwockie) is one of a handful of guys from NZ that i think stand up, quality wise, to international standards. Usually on some depressing introspective shit and always with good beat selection, in this case my boy Nettsmoney. I know dubstep is reaching critical mass, but thank christ it’s not on some boom bap feel good shit.
