A lot of lyricists today like to hide behind mask or a persona. Perhaps this is because they have come up with an engaging alter ego. Perhaps they do not have a lot of life experience, confidence, or charisma personally. Or maybe they simply just aren’t that interesting a person. Whatever the reason, Angus Younga is going against this grain.
The second signing to the emerging Grhyme Production’s roster are Melbourne duo Broken Aesthetiks. Well known amongst underground circles for their regular gigging in metro and rural Victoria, MC Angus Younga (aka FatGut) and DJ Elev8, whose beat juggling skills left him 3rd in the Victorian DMCs, have already dropped a debut full length release entitled Broke. An intriguing mix of tales of personal strife and achievement, lows and highs, struggles and triumphs interwoven amongst punchline-laden mayhem, the duo has constructed an immersive atmosphere on Broke.
Broken Aesthetiks are gearing up to release the follow up to their debut Broke, imaginatively titled Still Broke. Get Rowdy feat. Raven is the second leak from the album, due out early 2013. Whether you’re into storytelling, exorcising demons, punchlines and metaphors or straight up wiling out – there is something here for everybody.
