BIG SOUND: Music Industry Summit & Showcase
10 - 12 September 2008, Fortitude Valley, Brisbane, Australia
09:10 PM The Moon Bar - Empire Hotel, 339 Brunswick St Fortitude Valley
Coming up in a city more renowned for its relaxed atmosphere and lazy Sundays, there has been an undeniable insurgency to the Australian hip hop establishment on behalf of Brisbane during days of late. Responsible for much of this noise from north of the border is Pure Product - a three man team of rhyme writers (Tendancee, MARVEL and 4thDegree, plus DJ Butcher) that dip the pen deep into the poison well before taking it to paper. Whether expressing their dissatisfaction and disdain with the corporate and commercial direction hip hop has taken in recent history (even in this country), or providing picture perfect imagery depicting both the positives and negatives to the lives we lead, all rich in wordplay and delivered with a chilling calm or a firestorm ferocity, depending on the content, this is one group of vocalists among very few that have learned how to play the game and not the occasion.
