Seth Sentry – The Waitress Song

August 1, 2011

Amidst the “one-upping” so prevalent in the hip-hop scene, it’s refreshing to have artists such as Childish GambinoHoodie Allen and Chiddy Bang who are willing to play it down a bit. The likes of such dynamic artists certainly have it over the Australian scene though which still has some ground to make up. So it’s a good sign tracks like this come along.

Seth Sentry is an unsigned Melbourne emcee and a fellow rapper of 360 and Pez, two of the bigger names in Australian hip-hop, and is on the up, with “The Waitress Song” featuring heavily in Triple J Unearthed in 2009, and it’s still getting some heavy rotation on my iTunes. The relaxed storytelling style is easy to listen to…I love it, and if you’re a fan, check out “Train Catcher” off his EP titled “The Waiter Minute EP”.

360 feat. Pez – Just Got Started

August 1, 2011

This track by Melbourne emcees 360 and Pez is perfect for any summer afternoon. When Lupe Fiasco played in Sydney in 2009 Pez was along for the ride as a local support artist, and along with fellow Aussies Muph and Plutonic, got the crowd pumping for the superstar that is Lupe. “The Festival Song“, a hit collaboration between these two, featured on Pez‘s “A Mind Of My Own” in 2008, and now this time around the artists have swapped it around to have Pez featuring.

Just Got Started” heavily samples The Whitest Boy Alive‘s “1517” to great effect, and comparisons with “The Festival Song” are sure to be made. But, there’s nothing wrong with that; the laid back melody and rhymes they drop is their style, and it’s a refreshing break from the brash and arrogant personalities of the dominant hip-hop artists.
