Ten years ago, when Australian hip hop was little known, still struggling to be heard, Obese Records released the first ObeseCity compilation. Emcees and producers from across Australia, who are now revered as pioneers, contributed tracks. The likes of Hilltop Hoods, Muph and Plutonic, Bias B, Pegz, Hunter and many more, united to give their young genre a stronger voice.
Now, ten years later, Obese Records has much to celebrate as an independent label. With over sixteen rostered artists, an extensive distribution roster, three platinum records, three gold records, four ARIA awards, and countless fans from around the world. The genre has become a voice for the Australian youth, magnified by the support of triple j, community radio, and now commercial radio, street press, music magazines and online blogs.
On August 17th this year, Obese Records will release ObeseCity 2; a dual-disc compilation showcasing the brightest and most promising new artists in Australian hip hop. With emphasis on the label’s distribution roster and independently established acts, every track has been exclusively selected for the compilation. In addition to the long list of contributing established artists involved in ObeseCity 2, two places on the track list have been filled by ObeseCity 2 Competition winners Dwizofoz of Brisbane, Queensland, and DVS from Dandenong, Victoria.
