Another packed out show at the Enmore full of excitable young hip hop fans, coming out in force to see rising star Mac Miller. Like Kendrick Lamar recently, Mac Miller has been filling up rooms across the country with very little radio support. Hip Hop really seems to be popular at the moment as folks just seem to be more connected with what is popping in music more globally.

The 21 year old rapper from Pittsburgh, has been killing it in the States. Like the Beastie Boys years before him, he just makes hip hop that your average teenager who likes to party and get stoned can relate to. Frat Rap… kinda.

Anyways, Mac Miller’s show at Enmore went off. Great energy. The crowd was so into it, it felt like the place was sold out as the place went bonkers. He also did a heap of covers, including getting everybody to sing Michael Jackson.

Listen to Mac Miller Freestyle and Interview on Stolen Records…

EL-P – one of those odd balls kids of the hip hop world. After years of putting out groundbreaking indie hip hop material, it only seems like now EL-P’s music is finding a comfortable place for it’s self in context with what is happening in the indie music scene.

Touring with Laneway Festival, EL-P did an extra show in Sydney at Oxford Art Factory for the hardcore fans. The old Co Flow fans that can mumble along convincingly to every indecipherable EL-P lyric, came out in force.

An amazing show. A whole lot of energy, a lot of jumping around, particularly when he dropped ‘Drones Over BRKLYN’. Oh and supported by Purpose, who was dope!

Out of no where. Sold out shows across the country. No significant radio play. Only now they are starting to catch on. In this post record sales and post radio era, underground hip hop is just as popular as ever with a new generation.

Last night went off. Never have we scene the Enmore bounce like that with a crowd full of dedicated hip hop fans. Kendrick did a mix of both old and new material, which all went down amazingly and then ‘bam’ came out for a third encore. Massssiivvvveeee!

So good to see a young hip hop artist come out here, when they’re career is really popping, rather than wheeling out the same old geriatrics chasing 19 year old girls around the backstage.

Let us know what you think? Highlights? Who else do you want to see come out?

I only got there at midnight really unsure what I would find when I opened the doors to that dark burrow buried at the back of Goodgod Small Club. To my surprise I found a packed room and a dancefloor in full swing.

Thumping Caribbean rhythms and so much booty shaking. When the night was done we were picking up discarded bum cheeks dislodged during violent ass moving.

Thanks to the Dance Central crew for an awesome performance, and everybody that jumped in the circle.

Look out for the next party, last Saturday of January 2013.

It was a half n hour of power. In just 30 min Foreign Beggars, Borgore and 12th Planet exploded onto the airwaves with massive basslines and so much energy. Twitter was going crazy as the transformed the show into something you would expect to hear on London pirate radio.
