Australia’s reply to Just For Kicks, Sole’d Out premiers in Melbourne on the 31st of July. Low Budget will be performing on the night you can check the trailer here.
Since their emergence in 2005, Low Budget has established an enduring presence on the Australian hip hop scene. Following the widespread buzz generated by their self-released mixtape in 2005, the group’s jazzy debut album, Magnasound, was one of the surprise success stories of 2006, drawing universal enthusiasm and praise from critics and fans alike.
On the back of the critical triumph and public acclaim of Magnasound, Low Budget quickly solidified their reputation as one of the most energetic and engaging acts on Melbourne’s live scene, amassing a long list of support slots for international acts such as People Under the Stairs, Atmosphere and J Live, and local names including Funkoars, Pegz, Muph & Plutonic and Downsyde. The process of crafting songs for their celebrated live show was instrumental in forging the group’s second long-player, Laserdisc.
Laserdisc has been more than two years in the making, and has received a fantastic response so far. Laserdisc is available now on CD in JB Hi-Fi and all good record stores and iTunes. Limited edition clear vinyl copies now available from us and good record stores, only 250 copies of this were pressed, so be sure get in quick to avoid disappointment!!
The guys have also been selected by the good people at JJJ to perform at the Splendour In The Grass festival being held at Byron Bay later this month.
There should be some new tracks from Low Budget available to download at the JJJ Unearthed website site in the very near future so please swing past when and grab a copy here.
