JUST ON THE DOWN LOW //

Thursday, October 29th, 2009 by Nicole Norelli

We’ve been fortunate enough lately that every time a festival pops up, [and let’s face it, there's one almost every weekend now] the sun pokes its head out and gives us a warm summer welcome. Low:Fi Festival was no exception. A shocking 30 degree concrete heat beat everyone into believing we really might be in NY’s Brooklyn, with Aberdeen Street partitioned for a Chapelle style Block Party.

Low:Fi Festival brought this thirsty lil’ place on earth some serious international hip hop, dubstep and drum and bass:

Noisia destroyed, Qbert threw records into the crowd, Supernatural gave one hell of a set encouraging fans to hand him objects from which he’d rhyme “but this is freestyle my friend so I don’t need a pen.”
Local acts NAIK, Kitpop, Rokwell did just thatand of course NAS with one of the hottest looking and sounding lineups, tighter than a nun’s a-hole. I’m sorry, I mean, what can I say in praise that’s more succinct than “they were freaking awesome!”?

Kicks, hot chicks, no more than the average dicks, well the police got rid of them quick never seen a force so evident in Northbridge at an event like this undercover cops would quash any need to smoke green [yes its those who get stoned who turn violent, Go figure!]. Whilst backstage was one giant session, so where’s the lesson in removing citizens who teach the young and help the disabled? All we desired to Do The Right Thing was a hydrant to bust, and everything would’ve been Spike Lee.

In comparison to the Future and Stereo and Summadayze etcetera where the majority of kids can sell and pop pills quicker than it kills… y’all just need to chill…and kick it to some tunes on the down low… //

NAIK // IN THE SHADOWS ON THUNDER MOUNTAIN // ALBUM LAUNCH

Wednesday, October 7th, 2009 by John

NAIK-album-launch

After years of slaving in the studio, local producer NAIK and resident Cut & Paste digital effects genius,  is finally set to unleash his debut album ‘In The Shadow Of Thunder Mountain’ upon us. An exotic blend of psychedelic guitars, twisted samples, booming synths and crunchy beats, this release is set to knock socks straight off.

With foundations in sample based music, this first offering from NAIK takes the musical collage concept one step further. The addition of live instrumentation and progressive song structures has seen Naik forge his way into uncharted territory with this release, developing a unique sound that owes as much to psych-rock as it does to hip-hop.

The album was intricately compiled over a number of years at Naik’s personal studio and then mixed by Heliocentrics producer Mike Burnham, making sure every bit of analogue crunchiness was preserved.

Naik launches ‘In The Shadow of Thunder Mountain’ this Friday [October 9] at The Funk Club [upstairs at  The Leederville Hotel]. Support comes from from Assembly Line [live], Ta-ku, and Diger Rokwell [live].
