A Few Questions With Sammsonite of The Optimen

So recently we sent the questionnaire in the direction of none other than Brisbane’s The Optimen, first up we have Sammsonite (Producer/MC).  You can currently check out tracks from The Optimen’s new album The Out of Money Experience on their MySpace page, but i have a feeling that’s all going to end soon.  Alternatively, if you want to get yourself a copy of the album, drop a comment anywhere on our site before Sunday 18th of April to enter our competition to win or just grab it on iTunes.
