OBESE DISTRIBUTION : MR GREVIS - THE SAMPLER, OUT NOW (Purchase link and 'So High' clip now available)


Photobucket
The Sampler
Mr. Grevis


Release Date: 20.07.2012
Record Label: NRA Records
Distributed By: Obese Records

Mr. Grevis is Western Australia’s audacious new hip hop representative. His impressive debut album The Sampler is a comprehensive body of music and lyricism which exhibits Grevis’s conscientious grasp of the genre. After turning heads with track ‘The Youth’, first premiered on triple j’s Unearthed, Mr. Grevis went on to release lead single from The Sampler - ‘Drift Away’ featuring Melbourne songstress Jess Harlen to rave reviews. With its carefully assembled collection of premium beat-makers, select guest vocalists, and poignant themes, The Sampler is enlightened and honest.

With half of The Sampler’s production credits due to the dexterous Dazastah, other beat contributors include fellow WA residents Rob Shaker, Paulie P and Creed Birch. From soul samples and harpsichord loops, to synth-strings; The Sampler’s stories are transcended by its synchronised soundtrack.

An unabashed autobiography, The Sampler is a lyrically raw Aussie hip hop album which prides itself on conviction and genuineness. With no room for ignorance or complacency, The Sampler tells stories of hardship and morbid realisation, though through it all Mr. Grevis is ultimately a fierce optimist.

Lead single ‘Drift Away’ featuring Jess Harlen was designed to take one’s mind off all the dramas in life, by instead putting everything in perspective. With production by Creed Birch, the beat is chilled and soulful, ridden with piano riffs.

‘The Youth’, produced by Paulie P, is an expression of frustration towards the general disrespect and ignorance of youth today. Touching on tech-addiction, drug addiction and petty crime, Mr. Grevis questions the source of self-absorbed behaviour.

‘Give It Back’, also produced by Paulie P, is a comment on the increasingly capitalist nature of the music industry.

A promising new artist, Mr. Grevis has an exceptional knack for captivating and relatable storytelling.

Is Paulie P Draphto trying his hand at making beats? If not, who the fuck is the bloke, and how do SBX and extended fam keep pulling killer beatsmiths outta nowhere and shit. Shit is unfair.

Keen as for this McFly, should be nuts by the looks of things so far

Paulie P is a vet of the WA hip hop scene... he is a part of the Lower Class Kings band as the MC, if you ever get a chance to see them don't miss it. Dope as fuck full live band hip hop! And a top bloke to.
