After half a decade of paying dues, dropping mix tapes and earning stripes on the emcee battle circuit, Adelaide hip-hop dynasty Pagen Elypsis have finally released their debut album One Way Ticket on their own independent imprint Double Or Nothing Records.
Heralded by the singles One Hit Away and Aerobiks and a series of incendiary hometown shows, the warm reception to their debut disc drew praise from SA street press Onion (who ranked the group #7 in its 2010 Onion Crop list of hip-hop/electronic acts to watch) and even Suffa from Hilltop Hoods.
The group comprised of Prime, Purpose, Pohetikut, Motive and Kadowg recently performed in Melbourne with their full line-up for the first time, at Revolver Upstairs on Saturday 6th November. Supporting Pagen Elypsis was 2010s most talked about: Maundz (Crate Cartel), Gold Coast veteran Syntax (Soulmate Records), new Melbourne duo Neat Street (Ante Escobar & Kast) plus DJ Matik on the 1s and 2s.
