A vision of two of Brisbane’s premier hip hop producers, Bankrupt Billionaires has now culminated into a super group featuring the powerhouse production of Sammsonite and Dats (The Optimen) and the strong emotive vocals of Brisbane diva Kel on Earth, with a host of regular special guests.
Reminiscent of singer/producer teams like Gnarls Barkley, Little Dragon, Mark Ronson and the late great Amy Winehouse, Bankrupt Billionaires have established their very own world-class sound that blends head-knocking beats with soul drenched vocals and themes of love, compassion and frustration. After honing a wealth of quality material behind closed doors, Bankrupt Billionaires finally debuted 2 singles Daze of the Dead and Feelin This in 2011, earning them #4 and #5 in the unearthed Hip Hop Charts and a healthy dose of ongoing national radio play. Their impressive 7-piece live show has received rave reviews and high demand since debuting in November last year.
Bankrupt Billionaires released their debut, self-titled EP on Friday 19 Jan, following the release of their goresome video for Daze of the Dead and brand new single Turn the Other Cheek which has already received triple j interest and airplay. Check it out.
