Following the successful release of his album A World in Progress and single Progress feat. Mantra, Ishu is releasing a second single titled World Domination feat. Elf Tranzporter.
An up-tempo hip hop tune driven by regal horns and dramatic strings, with the highly skilled veteran Elf Tranzporter on the mic. Elf Tranzporter, well known for his politically charged lyricism both solo and as part of the Melbourne hip hop outfit Combat Wombat, delves into events and ethical issues in the pharmaceutical industry and conniving corporate takeover strategies.
Much like the rest of the album, World Domination feat. Elf Tranzporter was born from Ishu’s recent travels through Europe and Asia. Collecting samples and field recordings along the way; Ishu found inspiration in every country he visited, immersing himself in local culture and sketching beats in bunk beds all over the world. Other artists on the album include Mantra, Hau (Koolism), Lotek, Class-A, Dyl Thomas (Polo Club), Pataphysics and more.
