APOLLO BROWN, DAVID DALLAS, P-MONEY, SUFF DADDY & CHASM FEAT. SPECIAL GUESTS
Grindin' presents a night of global Hip Hop featuring artists from across 3 continents including Australia, New Zealand, Germany and America.
APOLLO BROWN (DETROIT/MELLO MUSIC GROUP)
Apollo Brown is best known as the go to producer in the Motor City Hip Hop circuit and has collaborated with artists such as Danny Brown, Oddisee, Diamond District, Rapper Big Pooh of Little Brother, Black Milk, MED, Grap Luva, Kenn Starr, Finale, Magestik Legend, Paradime, and many more.
Having signed to Mello Music Group his album projects include "The Reset", a series of reworked tracks in true remix tradition, "The Brown Study" as half of a collective with Boog Brown, and the "Gas Mask" LP as one-third of The Left with DJ Soko and Emcee Journalist 103. An LP which garnered respect from Hip Hop legends such as DJ Premier, who named it in his top albums of 2010 list.
In 2011, Apollo started a highly anticipated year off with the instrumental album "Clouds", that was a being named to several relevant top 10 lists for the year and another collabo album called "Daily Bread" with New York emcee Hassaan Mackey.
2012 has been a massive year for Apollo releasing his most recognized work so far, the collabo LP "Trophies" with DITC founder/head member, the legendary O.C. and "Dice Game" with Detroit's own Hip Hop heavyweight and J.Dilla protege Guilty Simpson.
Apollo's credo is simple: "Everything I make, I try to make it my favourite album of all time." He is building on the foundation laid down by Nas's "Illmatic" and Black Moon's "Enta Da Stage" in hopes of taking it one step further, and most important, is past the trepidation felt in the past. Radio is good, but Apollo's music is for the children of the underground.
DAVID DALLAS (NZ/DUCK DOWN)
Fresh off a 40 plus date tour of America David Dallas will be performing an exclusive set including tracks from his new release "Buffalo Man" EP which has all the songs inspired by, sampled or interpolated from Jamoroquai.
P-MONEY (NZ's #1 PRODUCER/DJ)
P-Money is New Zealand's most renowned Producer/DJ. His incredible talents in the studio and behind the decks have made him not only a household name in NZ but an artist to watch internationally.
SUFF DADDY (GERMANY/MPM)
With his drunken boom-bap madness with a 2010 state of mind. Dope beats, sick samples and twisted mini-korg licks, fueled with weed and Pilsetten. This is not your average Prenzelberg producer. Germany's Suff Deezy is on his own shit.
CHASM FEAT. SPECIAL GUESTS
