Elefant Traks are thrilled to announce The Last Kinection are joining their roster and will release their second album The Next of Kin in the second half of 2010.
The Last Kinection have close ties with the label: they were the main support on the last national tour with The Herd and have collaborated musically. The Last Kinection are known for stylish Indigenous flavoured hip hop but their foundation is family.
The group, its music and image is a way of expressing their pride and honour, respect and knowledge for their culture and elders. Drawing influence from their Kabi Kabi heritage, TLK represent what it is to be Aboriginal in today’s Australia with great intelligence, integrity and humour.
“The Last Kinection are an incredible Australian group – their live show is a must-see, their melodic production is contagious and their songs are powerful. TLK are one of the most important groups in the country. I cannot wait to work with them on the release of their next record.” – Urthboy
To welcome Weno, Nay and DJ Jaytee to Elefant Traks and celebrate this moment, The Last Kinection are appearing at the Ozi Batla album launch in Sydney on Sat June 26 at the Annandale Hotel alongside label-mate The Tongue.
