Since the release of Good Thing late in 2011, Seven has risen from relative obscurity to being heralded as ‘the one to watch’ amongst his peers. He now returns with single The Island,’ an upbeat take on a downturn that ooze’s the summer life that Seven chases so frenetically.
The ongoing partnership with Brisbane producer Cam Bluff again proves to be a rewarding one, with Bluff bringing his trademark drums to the tune in the only way he knows how, strong. Still, The Island sits on a different tangent to the previous work of the Gold Coast rapper, but given the independent operation run by the team themselves, maybe they don’t care. After a year working on a YouTube project with Mr Hill, Seven is now focussed on his third and final EP, In Transit. Loose and carefree, The Island is put together the only way Zach knows how; raw, honest and charismatic; it is the first hint at what is to come from In Transit.
Seven finished 2012 by joining the hip-hop mega bill of Sprung Festival, aswell as joining Spit Syndicate and Allday in a quick dash around the East Coast. He, along with close friend Mr Hill are heading around the country in February and March in Support of Drapht’s ‘Uni-Verse’ Tour. In Transit will be released in mid 2013 in-line with a national tour before the rapper retreats to his island (literally) for the second half of the year.
The release of single, Good Thing heralds a new era for Gold Coast emcee Seven. With renewed vigour he unveils Sevensies.com, a website designed to bring fans and the unfamiliar to his music in the simplest way possible.
Good Thing, featuring long time collaborators Mr. Hill and talk-of-the-town producer Cam Bluff is the first track leaked to the masses from the forthcoming Summer 2012 release Floated.
Sevensies.com will be home to all foreseeable musical endeavours, available for free digital consumption to the public. This direction is without qualm or concern; he merely aims to present his stories and often jovial views on the world to as many people as possible. Buoyed with the response from 2010 JJJ Unearthed competition win and numerous support slots for veritable music legends, Seven launches headlong into Floated. With Tour Dates slated for March 2012, Floated will hit the road with full force.
