NEW 2DOGS RELEASE 22-11-2016

Its been quite a while since we saw a release from the 2Dogs, it probably because they have been helping out a lot of musicians and bands around the country, weather it be recording or touring.. So finally after all these years they have decided to put together a mix tape feat beats that were left unused from previous sessions that never got used for anything, so they decided to put it together, did some tweaks and added some cuts and drops mixed it all up in a 30 min mix for your enjoyment… It comes out on digital & cassette just because they can, the cassette also features a remix of Mad Blunted feat QLD Hip Hop Icon Lazy grey, which never really got the proper exposure it deserved and will only be available on this tape…. img_2156

check out the mixtape on our Soundcloud page

We have a couple of shows coming up September & October

September & October will see Hydrofunk Crew hitting the East Coast of Australia for a series of nights, with new music from the label.

Tigermoth will be previewing and promoting music from His up and coming Album Effort & Essence2Dogs their reputation has been built on the back their memorable live performances and live collaborations.

Hydrofunk Records welcomes Calski

Here at Hydrofunk HQ we welcome Calski to the label with his up and comming project the Folkus EP on Digital and we will be dropping a 7 inch vinyl along with the release containing 2 tracks

 Calski has been a consistent and unmatched presence in the Hip Hop community in Australia since the late 90s. Known for his unmistakable production and profound lyricism, Calski is also a DJ and multi-instrumentalist, playing bass, keys and guitar.

 Having supported the likes of Ghostface Killah (USA), Public Enemy (USA), Total Eclipse (USA), The Herd, Urthboy, Mantra, Spit Syndicate and Joelistics, Calski has long been considered a peer amongst Australian Hip Hop greats and attributes his style to the influences of Pete Rock, 9th Wonder, DJ Premier, Black Milk, Apollo Brown and more.

 Brisbane MC/Producer Calski has announced the release of the third single from his EP ‘Folkus’. The track, ‘Just Clap’, is an undeniably funky dancefloor starter featuring renowned Canberra-born MC, Hau, and will be released on 7” vinyl by pioneer Queensland hip hop label Hydrofunk Records.

you can listen to JUST CLAP here

 A meeting of two Australian Hip Hop veterans that promises to delight, ‘Just Clap’ sees Hau providing his trademark wordplay over an infectious Calski-laced bass-driven groove reminiscent of James Brown, Ozomatli and Prince all rolled into one.

 The ‘Just Clap’ 7” is out 19 July 2016 and boasts the equally impressive B-side track ‘One Hand On The Bible’ featuring favourites Briggs and I AM D.

 While the EP ‘Folkus’ drops on the same date, those who purchase the ‘Just Clap’ 7″ vinyl single will receive the full 5 track EP via free download. Along with the vinyl tracks ‘Folkus’ features Aus MC’s Dialectrix, Sinks & Raven.

 Hydrofunk Night Brisbane

Jan 14th saw Hydrofunk welcome Japan’s DJ Krush back to Brisbane in support of his new album, the Butterfly effect, his first official release in over a decade.  Krush has visited Brisbane many times before, and it was fitting that on this occasion Hydrofunk should act as his host.  A showcase from Sensei Krush, the night was no doubt one of the best Brisbane had bared witness to, at least in recent memory . Supports were legendary locals Resin Dogs in DJ mode, plus new Hydro signings, Tigermoth and Triple Nip. The event was everything Hydrofunk have been renowned for, bombastic beats, authentic Hip Hop and great visuals. It was a reminder that Hydrofunk are still premier in Australian beats labels. There was perhaps no better way to do this, than with the meeting of minds that are DJ Katch, Dave Dog, Tigermoth and unarguably one of the worlds greatest exponent of beats, the Miles Davis of electronic music, DJ Krush. As for the man himself, his excitement and enthusiasm for the night and his Hydrodunk hosts was evident for all to see. His request to go on early only illustrated this, and he played an extended set of over 2 hours. This was Krush at the peak of his powers. The vibe of the room was one of both wonderment at the skills of the man, but also mesmerised and moved by his arsenal of beats. Krush’s strength and originality is in his ability to weave it all together, and take people along on a journey, all the while him acting as journey guide. Krush bought his best, and no-one left in any doubt. Hyfrofunk have a long established relationship with Japan and love for DJ Krush, and it was more than apparent that this love was reciprocated by the master himself. Hopefully we have more great news in the not too distant future regarding our relationship with Japan. Stay tuned. Expect to see more Hydrofunk nights in the future, and if you’re in Europe you can perhaps catch an early hearing of Tigermoth’s upcoming release in DJ Krush’s set. Big thanks to Wooly Mammoth for helping to put on a spectacular night.     dogs krush2 krush3 tiger moth

PRESS RELEASE FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Bankrupt Billionaires drop their epic sophomore like it’s Nobody’s Business.   Today Brisbane Soul crew Bankrupt Billionaires announce the release of their LP Nobody’s Business – a powerful release worth every tweak in its 4 years of production. Nobody’s Business will be available at iTunes, record stores and www.hydrofunk.com.au, courtesy of Hydrofunk Records/MGM from 13 November 2015.

In the lead up to this big announce the group released two videos for their patient fans – party track “The Dawn” and love-lost-but-not-longed-for banger “I’m Here”. The songs offer a healthy taste of what to expect from the 11-track record, but the crew say Nobody’s Business is not an album centred around 1 or 2 singles but moreso a journey, with every song offering something special to compliment an overriding vision and sound. “We all have different opinions on which songs we wanted to lead with, and it’s like that – all songs are so unique – but it’s still a very cohesive album. We’ve put a lot of thought, love and time into this release. “ The powerhouse outfit comprises some of Brisbane’s – and Melbourne’s – brightest talent featuring internationally regarded hip-hop producers Sammsonite & DATS (The Optimen), Queen of Brisbane Soul Kel on Earth, and an all-star live show featuring crooner Mr Laneous, Dave Atkins (Resin Dogs), special guest vocalists and a killer horn section. Bankrupt Billionaire’s long awaited follow up is sure to appease their patient fans and intrigue all lovers of soulful genres. Full of heart, Soul and Hip-Hop Hop sensibility, Nobody’s Business is as unique as it is uniquely accessible, and it needs to be heard.
