The over-the-top, bazooka wielding action star of hip hop, word master Celph Titled began his professional entrance into the rap game as a teenage
lyricist and local production staple during the late 90's indie 12-inch vinyl boom.
After relocating to New York City, fresh out of high school, he began working as an in-house producer and A&R. All of Celph's early records were
released on vinyl, including tracks from his original group, Equilibrium, and singles from career-long partner-in-rhyme, Apathy. He has been the
leading member of two legendary crews, The Demigodz and Jedi Mind Tricks' Army of the Pharaohs collective and has become well known for his standout
quotable-filled performances and hard-hitting East Coast-style production featured on the crews' respective blockbuster releases. Notably, in 2004
Celph featured on Australia’s own Terntable Jediz "All Out War EP" title track.
In 2005, he was invited to be an official part of the Fort Minor project, which was executive produced by Jay-Z, which lead to a nationwide tour with
Fort Minor in 2006. Since then, Celph has released a unique compilation entitled, "The Gatalog"; a four-disc set which captured a long discography of
Celph's guest appearances and freestyles, going all the way back to his early releases from 1998. This is still a top-seller to date! He subsequently
worked with 'Diggin' In The Crates (D.I.T.C.)' multi-platinum producer, Buckwild, on his critically acclaimed 2010 debut solo album, "Nineteen Ninety
Now embarking on a focused solo career with over ten years of industry know-how, respect, international touring and die hard loyal fans, the
"Celph"-made independent pastor of punch lines sets out to solidify his stamp on the scene as a major factor once and for all. Celph is sure to knock
out Aussie fans with newcomer, and leading emcee in his own right, Blacastan.
Qualified chef-turned-rapper from Queens, New York, newcomer Action Bronson has built up a loyal following since he decided to leave the kitchen for a
recording studio only 18 months ago. However, the man Rolling Stone magazine recently called the “Artist to Watch” didn’t stray too far from the
kitchen, as he is well known for rapping about his culinary delights. His experiences lend a unique flavour to his rhymes, where you’ll find witty
mentions of duck prosciutto, Tunisian olives, smoked brisket and other delicacies along with vivid imagery of a modern-day Viking pillaging his way
across New York.
Actions recently released debut studio album “Dr. Lecter”, (which is available via digital download) has been described as “a peppery stew of food
jokes, weed talk and pro wrestling shout-outs” drizzled liberally over his producer/DJ pal Tommy Mas’ deft boom-bap loops, akin to the classics from
the late 80’s / early 90’s Hip Hop era. Action delivers a variety of techniques that are far beyond the capacity of someone who only picked-up the
pen a mere three years ago.
It’s impossible to hear Action Bronson’s music without noticing that he sounds a lot like the Wu-Tang Clan’s Ghostface Killah. Bronson is by no means
a copycat, but the resonance and urgency of his delivery could sound very similar to those of the Staten Island originator. Featuring on Wu-Tang
Clan’s recently released “Legendary Weapons”, Ghost and Bronson appear on a track together, titled “Meteor Hammer”, with Boston MC, Termanology.
Critics are adamant that it is pretty easy to tell the two apart.
Action is suited to release an album “Well Done”, which was entirely produced by New York’s Statik Selektah, and includes special guest emcees. Catch
him on Aussie shores for the first time showing off his catalogue of beefy verbal treats, with Tommy Mas serving up the musical desert on the decks!
A prolific wordsmith and integral member of Melbourne crew Lyrical Commission, Brad Strut has been fine tuning his craft and contributing to the
growth and evolution of Australian Hip Hop since the early ‘90s and has created for himself, a rock solid position in the Australian Hip Hop scene.
With numerous releases since 2001 and a who’s who of collaborations, this groundbreaking artist featured on Jurrasic 5’s DJ Numark’s mix CD, “Hand’s
On” and also worked with the infamous Australian criminal identity Mark Brandon ‘Chopper’ Read on the track “Chop Chop” for the soundtrack to the
movie Trojan Warrior.
There is no disputing that Brad is an accomplished live performer, as he has shared the stage with the likes of Tha Liks, Hilltop Hoods, Eternia,
Apathy, Kool Keith, The Roots, Swollen Members, A-Trak, Aceyalone, Foreign Legion, People Under The Stairs to name a few, and has also played all
major Australian festivals such as Livid and the Big Day Out.
