Northside Records X Hiatus Kaiyote 

Record Store Day BEAT BATTLE

We’ll be firing out the first copies of the debut 12” from Hiatus Kaiyote’s forthcoming record, “Get Sun” ft. A face melting string & horn arrangement from the one and only Arthur Verocai !! Now this is a very important part: to celebrate our future soul cherubs’ 12” single, we’re throwing back to some original Hiatus Kaiyote Fitzroy folklore business: a beat battle for the chance to win a signed copy of the record AND a pair of NINJA TUNE x AIAIAI headphones.

For those who don’t know, back in the ye olde days of Hiatus Kaiyote’s beginnings circa 2011-2012ish, they played at The Evelyn every Tuesday night. We went every goddamn week. It was hot. But what was special, was each week they’d choose a theme or a song for local beatmakers to flip, and host a beat battle !!



  • Cook up your finest beat with that aforementioned sample
  • Shoot your track across in .mp3 format (and feel free to throw in a video of yourself playing it too) to by 5pm this Thursday 10th June
  • Tune in to our gram on Saturday to find out who wins the signed copy of Get Sun!!

Put the word out there people ! We wanna hear what you got !
