The Public Opinion Six + Emcee 1/6 official record launch


SHADOWELEC-350We love it when our friends put on shows – and this time around  it’s a mad collab between HopeStreet Recordings, Scatter Scatter Tropical Discotheque and Shadow Electric! On Saturday February 7, Shadow Electric will host The Public Opinion Six and the Hope Street gang for the official launch of the ‘sweet sixteenth’ release from HopeStreet recordings (1/6: Cosmetic Love bw. The Public Opinion Six: Jappo). Joining them are Emcee 1/6, DJ Manchild and the Public Opinion Sound System for an action packed night of Afro-Brunswick-trophop, disco and soul.

From the press release: “Another sure-fire, super-heavy afro-dynamite-soul hit from those likely types down at Hope St headquarters!! And yes that’s right, it is the sweet sixteenth 45 released by this Melbourne record label juggernaut and there is only one way to celebrate it – teaming up with those cats from The Scatter Scatter Soundsystem and turning out a huge party down at The Shadow Electric!

Two sides of heat, each fronted by a different vocal weapon from the artillery of The Public Opinion Afro Orchestra will be translated live for you on Saturday Feb 7th. Rapper One-Sixth and singer/percussionist Lamine Sonko are joined their pals The Public Opinion Six (formerly The Afrobiotics & also the rhythm section behind the POAO) for two sets of afro-funk power. Then later DJ Manchild & the Scatter Scatter Soundsystem take over and turn the volume up to 10 with their massive party blend of tropical beats alongside live percussion and MCs.”
