Mathas | White Sugar Film Clip

Friday, October 28th, 2011 by John


Mathas White Sugar Still

After a good couple of months piecing together, the debut film for Perth based wordsmith Mathas is finally live and on-line. White Sugar focuses on personal flaws, habitual behaviour and the extreme consumption of heavily refined and processed foods in the Western world.

White Sugar is a mixture of stop motion photography, live-video and green screen, handmade out of an assortment of sweet treats and 30kg of salt (because it was cheaper than sugar). White Sugar is a collaboration between local creatives (and Cut & Paste family) Tom Mathieson (aka Mathas), John Macliver, Dominic Pearce, Nicole Norelli and Jordan Shields.

As you’ll see when you scroll below the clip is a swirling journey through a vicious candyland, where ripe raspberries and Chico Babies go for the throat, whilst the product advertising of yesteryear repeats in a droning, endless loop. The only way forward is towards total zombification and a posse of buzzword angels on your shoulder, lulling you to a lolly-encrusted catatonia. Enjoy!

Last weekend saw the Cut & Paste: Micro-Festival launch the tenth issue of the Cut & Paste DVD. Kicking things off in the balmy sun at 4pm the Bakery was filled with Perth’s first Silent Micro-Cinema, a Hurben/Planet Clothing collaboration (which had sticky tape horns and limbs hanging from the rafters) and a plethora of vintage and retro game console and canvas hangings adorning the sea containers.

The Micro-Festival saw unique collaborations between Felicity Groom and Diger Rokwell, Naik, Zeke, Kit Pop and KZ the Boogieman from Cosmo Gets, in addition to 6s & 7s playing their album Choose the Sentinel Blooze from beginning to end, as the Panda Band did with their yet to be released album. Soulfister, Abbe May, Rex Monson, Tomas Ford, Mathas, Chris Wheeldon, Gemma Pike and the Cut & Paste Sound System were all on hand to round out the musical entertainment.

The man with his stills camera in hand, Bradley Serls was there to grab everyone in their Micro-Festoval festivities… See if you’re featured in the gallery!

BEAT DOWN // THIRD TIME LUCKY

Friday, November 12th, 2010 by John

BSP_06112010_0367

The Bird was at capacity by 9pm and a line of keen punters ran down the street and around the corner. For beat aficionados it was the place to be. Nineteen beatmakers took to the stage in a series of heats, then the hopefuls were whittled down to eight as things started to get to the pointy-like-a-stylus end. As the quarters went to the semis and then bang to the finals, it was Perth’s prodigal son of the beat Ta-ku who took out his third successive Beat Down Title – a three-peat! (Thanakfully he has now been retired and we should see a new champion arise out of Beat Down Four…)

Beatmakers who appeared on the night included Rob Shaker (2nd Place), Creed birch, Ian johnson, Axis, Ta-ku, Mathas, Raize, Silence, Fybdz86, Konflikt, Alphanumerics, Leonidis, Daniel Oath, Mike Viture, M’da V, Gravy.

We have video footage from all the rounds  so you will be seeing edits come out via. our video channel sometime in the coming months…

BSP_20102010_0106

Last night Rhode Island native, and arguably one of Hip Hops most influential poets/lyricists graced the stage of the Rosemount Hotel, in his first ever visit Perth.  Coincidentally this will also be the last time he will perform here, as Sage announced earlier this year that after the LI(F)E On The Road Tour he will be on indefinite hiatus. Supporting Sage was Mathas, Thorts & Kadyelle, Delirious and Dj Silence

The Community and Flow Lab were responsible for bringing the great man to our town and gave us what many in Perth will be calling the gig of 2010!

As always, Mr. Brad Serls was on hand to grab some snaps for us, check them out below.

JAMBOREE FOR JOCELYN FUNDRAISER //

Sunday, January 31st, 2010 by John

JamboreeJoceSundaeJamboree for Jocelyn is a fundraising event for a good friend of Perth’s music community, Jocelyn Bartlem. Last year Jocelyn suffered life changing spinal injuries that have put her in financial and physically tough times.

Jocelyn is positive, beautiful and vibrant young woman with a love for life, her friends, family and Perth. Jocelyn has touched the hearts of all that have had the privilege of meeting. Even in this tough situation Jocelyn has maintained her positivity and out going personality.

Now it’s our turn to help Jocelyn, as she faces some financial challenges in face of on going treatment and rehabilitation.

Cut & Paste, The Community and Sundaes at The Rosemount are throwing down a mini day festival on Sunday February 21 to raise as much money as we can for Jocelyn on her way to recovery.

Jamboree for Jocelyn features Perth’s finest live-acts and DJs taking over both inside and outside the Rosemount Hotel in full effect. All artists have donated their time and Cut & Paste will be donating all the profits from Sundae to the cause.

Jamboree for Jocelyn is a free event with donation tins passed around during the event, as well as auctions from local artists in Perth.

SERIOUSLY SOUND SYSTEM 2009 // ALL SYSTEMS GO!

Tuesday, December 22nd, 2009 by Cassie

Seriously Sound System Line-Up‘Twas the Sunday before Christmas and the fun and funky of Perth congregated in the Hyde Park parklands for a musical celebration of summer. Seriously Sound System – RTR’s festival of local music was on again!

Hundreds basked in the 35 degree heat of the day drinking in the great tunes and the great Coopers served up to chill us out. The afternoon’s entertainment was comprised of RTR jockeys Rex Monsoon, Mama Cass and Sardi riding the decks, a sprinkle of dope rhymes from Mathas and some electro beats by The Transients, Declan and Gonzo.

At 5 o’clock The Brow Horn Orchestra took to the stage. The 9 piece ska/hip hop outfit consisting of percussion, brass, keys and vocals put on an entertaining show, grabbing the audiences’ attention with their fun music and quirky stage presence (which included partial nudity from Rezide ending up in naught but cock jocks). Taking us into the evening was the beat-mastery of Diger Rockwell, Naik and Micah VS Ben Mac.

With only a couple of hours of the night left, energetic twelve piece band Askari Afrobeat Orchestra took to the stage. This talented collective controlled the dance floor with their afro funk party music. Dan Tha Man and Rok Riley fed the vibe with a fun face-off and capping off the night was The Typhoons. The hip hop act teamed up for their last performance together before MC Able relocates to M-Town. Putting in their all, Able, Galaga, Alley and their army of talented musicians pushed out a kick-ass performance while basking in the audiences’ enthusiasm and appreciation.

RTR did it again – SSS hit the festive nail on the head!

Help! I’ve given birth to a 10 pound hairless Sasquatch! //

Thursday, September 24th, 2009 by Nicole Norelli

“Help! I’ve given birth to a 10 pound hairless Sasquatch!” would have been the cry of the mother of an infamous yeti; but I caught her bopping around, grinning from ear to ear, proud of a baby son strutting on milk crates, bumping out rhymes to a full house on stilts.

Yes, if you found yourselves with a golden ticket to a sold out Scotsman’s-land last Sunday night, you would have witnessed the birth of WA’s own: Maxabillion’s Piece for Pieces EP and Mathas’s debut album 10 Pound Hairless Sasquatch, released on Community Records.

The albums were presented back to back, with very special guests and Community’s best Diger Rokwell, Arms in Motion and Deph One spinning the wheels like a fixed gear bike without brakes, and MC Able throwing out duet tricks for kicks with love on “P.L.R.T”.

Always doing it in style, with a 200 strong crowd keepin’ it local and loud and one hell of a proud night: Big ups to the Earthheads! //
