The Hilltop Hoods let a bit of info out via Twitter this morning.  The information? well it seems after leaving Obese they’ve managed to keep/hold onto/get back the rights to the albums they released while signed to Obese.  The upside of this is that now they’re free to reissue those releases and they’re doing just that.

On Friday 13th November 2009, we made our way to the Rosemount for a hip hop gig, Able was launching his new 5-Track EP. A great night was had, some great tunes were played and an EP was released.

Able’s new EP Ice Cream Won’t Save You is a must hear release, if you haven’t heard this yet I suggest you get out and have a listen as this is not your normal Australian Hip Hop sound.  There’s a very interesting sound for Hip Hop brewing over here on the west coast of Australia and Able is one of the guys stirring the brew alongside other members of The Community.

Sydney artist Phatchance is set to drop his debut album Inkstains next Friday, the 20th of November, Chance contacted me and eventually after a discussion it was decided he’d send me a copy of Inkstains to listen too and i’d give him my thoughts and some promo via this blog (it really is that easy). I’ll be clear though, i’m not bought these are my thoughts un-edited, un-compromised.

Horroshow (Solo & Adit) are preparing to drop their sophmore album Inside Story this Friday on October 2nd via Elefant Traks.  Judging by the tracks which you can catch over at MySpace, this album is just exactly what we’ve come to expect from the Horrorshow crew after the auditory awesome that was The Grey Space.  If anyones to thank for making things sound different in Aussie Hip Hop this year, it’s the Elefant Traks camp, so don’t sleep on their releases this year. You can also check out their single Thoughtchrime (Doin’ My Think) online now.

Will this be the last release from a Certified Wise artist on Obese Records or via Obese Distribution? only time will tell i suppose, but I’m willing to go out on a limb and say yes, feel free to proove to me or tell me I’m wrong.  The new album from Adelaide’s Cross Bred Mongrels titled Certified Wise has been produced by DJ Debris who actually used to be a fully fledged Cross Bred Mongrel prior to joining the Hilltop Hoods.  The album looks be another defining point in what i would consider to be the rawer side of the Certified Wise crew and i guess could explain why the credits for State of The Art never mentioned Cross Bred Productions/Studios.
