The track is called, ‘Stand Up’, and the beat was produced by M-Phazes, featuring Lee Sissing on the hook. It also features a whole bunch of the Obese Records fam. Here’s a bit of what Whisper had to say about his latest work.
‘Stand Up’ is the first single off my upcoming free-album, ‘In Good Company’. Which will feature a heap of collabs with some amazing local emcees, vocalists and producers.
Check out the ‘Stand Up’ clip on a earlier post here.
Whisper is the triple threat. He’s an experienced emcee and producer, plus, the boy can sing! Whisper has been steadily producing beats for over 7 years and rapping for over 10, but he has only just begun to unleash his melodic vocal stylings, at the insistence of those who have worked with him.
In 2005, hip-hop crew Equills, consisting of Whisper, and his partners in crime, Mantra and DJ Wax Vandal, released an LP ‘The New Threat’ to wide critical acclaim. ‘The New Threat’ shows Whisper’s talent as, not only an emcee, but as a producer, with a large proportion of the beats being Whisper productions. Equills played at many festivals, such as, Livid and Kiss My Grass, and shared the stage with artists such Looptroop, Hilltop Hoods, Bliss N Eso and The Roots. Following the success of ‘The New Threat’, Whisper was inspired to pursue other creative projects – and to complete a degree in design – but has not ruled out a future Equills album.
The New Threat has been a fav of ours since it dropped way back when, to see Whisper team back up with Mantra and DJ Wax Vandal, would be something special. With both artists appearing on the Obese fam anything’s possible.
