DJ Skae’s - A-List, a compilation of Hip Hop’s finest, dropped on February 18th 2011 through Green Distribution (MGM). It will be available at your local independent hip hop store as well as JBHi-Fi’s, Sanity etc.
After dropping DJ Skae’s Guestlist just about a year ago, DJ Skae is back with another killer compilation album, DJ Skae’s A-List. This time Skae has chosen artists from around the country to submit songs for this compilation and Australia’s finest hip hop artists have delivered some heat.
With artists from each state, Fluent Form (VIC), Draz (TAS) , D’Opus & Ro’Shambo (ACT), Torcha & B-Don (NSW), Tommy Illfigga (QLD), Chase (SA) and Hunter (WA) to name a few, this compilation album showcases the hottest hip hop from around the country. This album also features international collaborations with the likes of Sereck (Def Wish Cast) teaming up with Grand Puba (Brand Nubian) from the USA, Tha Centalinkaz featuring Showay from Japan and Invincible Armour, a scratch crew from the UK, working with Sneed a producer from USA.
DJ Skae’s A-List features beatbox and DJ/Producer tracks as well from well known Australian artists Rivals (Basic Equipment), DJ Morgs (Thundmentals), DJ Butcher (Crate Creeps) and DJ Skae himself. LC Beats also drops some fire with his Didgeribox track combining his skills as a beat boxer and didgeridoo player.
The stand out tracks on this release are Social Change’s ‘Black Text’ which features some dope flows over tight production by Funkwig and nice clean cuts from DJ Snair. Sceptic and Dseeva’s ‘My Heads Up’ which is a change up from their usual grimey style to an uplifting track that really grabs you, and of course Sereck’s production and Grand Puba’s rhymes on the track ‘Wait No More’ that will guarantee to get you moving.
DJ Skae’s A-list also shows the diversity of Australian hip hop with different sounds under the one genre coming from crews like Daily Meds, Blades and Mdusu. This compilation album has hard hitting dark songs to light hearted fun tracks and is sure to satisfy every listener and boasts 20 originally produced tracks.
