The Local Frequency has once again teamed up with The Get Down Events and became an official sponsor for their upcoming event ‘The Get Down 14′, which is set to take place on Saturday September 14 at Horse Bazaar.
With a stacked lineup that includes some of Melbourne’s most talented Hip-Hop, Rap, Trap, Soul and R&B artists, there’s no doubt the night is bound to be huge.
In preparation of the night, TLF invites you to familiarise yourself with each artist (and their music) listed on the bill by checking out their profiles below:
Currently one of Melbourne’s hottest female MC’s, Kobi Spice is independent, hungry and ready to takeover the industry. Her latest single ‘Cut Me A Cheque‘ comes in the form of an upbeat banger (featuring Hudson Taylor) that’s peppered with trap-fused sonics and a catchy chorus.
Furthermore, having already spoiled her fans with a healthy string of releases, Kobi looks to be gearing up in preparation for her forthcoming EP. You can support her movement by raising funds to go towards new sound equipment, distribution costs, press photo shoots and a music video via her Go Fund Me here.
Royalty Noise are a Melbourne-based band, founded by Ethiopian-Australian rapper and producer, Mikiyas Alemu (Bizz). The group reflects a soundscape that channels Dub-Reggae and jazzy R&B sonics, as well as dexterous lyricism to create a progressive Hip-Hop sound.
After earning a reputation for their impressive improvisation sets throughout the city, Royalty Noise released their debut album ‘Daily Rituals‘ in 2014 and follow up EP ‘Common Ground‘ in 2016. The band is now currently in the process of readying their next album ‘Unnatural Selection‘ which is due for release on August 24, 2019.
Emerging artist STRICTLY DT is originally from Seattle, Washington, but later moved to
Perth in 2005. He started writing poems and songs at the age of 10 and became a recording artist at the early age of 17. Since then, STRICTLY DT has gathered experience working with a local independent label, whom he released his first four projects with.
However, DT recently decided to try a different route and manage himself in order to gain a deeper understanding of every single facet that’s involved when being an independent artist.
His 2017 mixtape ‘Leave A Message‘ was the beginning of a new inspired style of writing and performing that focusses on self-reflection and presenting a message. This lead him into his latest project titled, ‘Note To Self‘, featuring Sydney-based producer Ralph Radical.
Melbourne-based singer/rapper Hon3y is all about spreading peace, positivity and empowerment among young women in Hip-Hop. Further, she demonstrates her determination to promote these themes by providing a fresh and contagious energy within her music.
Hon3y is a talented artist who looks to take the game by storm with her multi-faceted skill set and admirable consistency. Check out her latest efforts as part of New Wave Infinity’s Foodworx Cypher here!
