Obese Records is proud to announce the signing of Melbourne’s Mantra to the family. Mantra is known for his pivotal role as part of local outfit Illzilla, whose 2008 debut full length Wasteland, received both critical and commercial reception (the single “Cut Feet” featured prominently on Triple J).
Now part of the new breed of Obese Records artist, Mantra will release Power of the Spoken in early 2010 and will join young artists like Illy, Skryptcha, Dialectrix, Thundamentals, and Spit Syndicate in bringing Australian hip hop forward in the years to come.
Obese Records owner and artist Pegz has said about the latest addition;
“It’s been a crazy 18 months of rebuilding the roster and Mantra is the cherry on top.”
Mantra will be a late addition to several Obese Records Block Party Tour dates. Details forthcoming.
