INSTORE ANNOUNCEMENT

INSTORE ANNOUNCEMENT

Next Saturday we have the pleasure and privledge of hosting a great of the local beat scene.

BILLY HOYLE.

he will be releasing his new album, BRUXO released on HOUSE OF BEIGE

As somewhat of a follow up to the “Os Afro Sambas Reworks” project, “Bruxo” is another release inspired by Hoyle’s deep love for Brazilian music. Sampling rich sounds from flutes, Fender Rhodes, guitar and even melodica, it fluctuated between being a completely vocal or instrumental-only album throughout the creative process, eventually leading to a mix of the two with contributions from Tom Scott, Cazeaux O.S.L.O & N’fa Jones. The backbone of these pieces is formed by the world-class Myele Manzanza, who played drums on every track, shifting between boom-bap grooves and also flexing his incredible chops. Damian Smith also adds life to this project with various solos and keyboard parts that colour in the instrumental pieces.

The instore will feature the HOUSE OF BEIGE djs from 3pm before and after the show. The INSTORE will feature the Live drumming of MYELE MANZANZA and some fresh MC’s.

The show will be wild! Can’t wait.

SATURDAY 24th August at 3pm!

Sat. July 6 – Instore with DRMNGNOW

Instore Performance and 7″ Single Launch Party

 

Lots to celebrate!
Leaps & and Bounds Music Festival, NAIDOC Week and more.
New 45 on sale. Cop it while it’s hot.
AUSTRALIA DOES NOT EXIST bw. ALWAYS REMEMBER
Northside Records NR023S. Ltd. Edition

Neil Morris, or DRMNGNOW, is a Yorta-Yorta man and musician with a purpose. DRMNGNOW (pronounced Dreaming Now) is a project which is firmly focused on raising awareness around Indigenous justice in a post colonial society. This work is complex and is as equal parts system challenging as it is celebratory. 

The single Australia Does Not Exist has been  re-visited featuring Kee’ahn, a proud Kuku Yalanji, Jirrbal and Torres Strait Island woman, exciting emerging artist,  and intergral part of the DRMNGNOW live experience . Her voice as an Indigenous woman speaks powerful volumes on this iteration of DRMNGNOWs debut track first released January last year. 

Always Remember is a new song also ft Kee’ahn and Paul Gorrie adding a soulful touch to this piece on the hook. It is a song about Indigenous resillience in the face of colonial violence. It is a song that reflects on the link to thousands of years of spiritual power that the indigenous experience holds. 

This seven inch release is as part of Naidoc Week and to give eternal life to important local songs.

SO CRATES Mama Danced On Soul Train 7″

WE ARE EXCITED TO PRESENT THE NEXT RELEASE ON THE NORTHSIDE LABEL, COURTESY OF MELBOURNE HIP HOP GROUP SO.CRATES, MADE UP OF BEATMAKER SKOMES & WORDSMITH CAZEAUX.OSLO.

In the late 1970’s Cazeaux O.S.L.O.’s mother contributed to the Brown [read Black is beautiful] American cultural treasure chest by dancing on a television show called Soul Train. This is fresh, truly fly and absolutely cold crush. He made a song about it. That’s the truth.

It was first performed at an instore appearance at Northside Records in 2018 which brought the house down and Chris Gill has been hassling the band to release the song ever since. It only seems fitting Northside ended up pressing this gem to wax!

On the A-Side we have the original version in true So.Crates boom-bap soulful fashion, and on the B-Side Skomes digs into his UK Garage roots and ups the tempo for the club! Fresh!

GET DOWN WITH US FOR THE LAUNCH AT THE CURTIN THIS FRIDAY NIGHT!
