Short, crisp and delicious are three words that can describe the Debut EP from Canberra’s own Stateovmind. This five track offering serves the listener up a mouth watering selection of clever, poetic and potent wordplay. With classic and fresh home-style flavours which range from the traditional to the more modern and personal.
All the while simmering amongst a sound-scape of handpicked drum soaked bass bubbling beats. Delivered by some of Australia’s premier beatsmiths including M-Phazes. Coming from the isolated, forgotten and often criticised Canberra has given Stateovmind the time and space to develop a unique style of home-grown hip hop. Despite being recorded in his bedroom the Something for Nothing EP has a professional and well rounded sound.
Most recently this was recognised on the launch day of Triple J Unearthed Radio, when Stateovmind was selected from thousands of unearthed artists to be one of the first played on the new digital radio station. Best of all the Something For Nothing EP is available for free, both on CD and digitally.
