Rising hip-hop and electronic label Soulmate Records has partnered with EMI Music Australia to release and distribute a number of upcoming musical projects.
Soulmate, founded in 2006 and based in Melbourne, boasts an artist roster including:
* Pez – 2009 ARIA Award Nominee, 2009 AIR Award Winner and #7 in 2009’s Triple J Hottest 100 for The Festival Song.
* 360 – next wave hip-hop artist and co-writer of Pez’s – The Festival Song.
The first release coming out will be 360’s sophomore album, drawing on influences as diverse as Santigold, Daft Punk, and Lil Wayne to create a wildly experimental but expertly crafted eclectic hip-hop masterpiece produced entirely by Melbourne’s own Styalz Fuego.
If you want to be first on board in hearing the future of Australian hip-hop, check out one of 360’s demos for his upcoming album Falling & Flying on the Myspace called I Hate You.
