One-Sixth has been Melbourne’s best kept secret for too long. In August 2012 the brilliant young lyricist will release his debut album Electronic Mail through local indie label Pang Productions together with Obese Distribution.
The brilliant lead single Round The Sun is a rich insight to what is sure to be a new benchmark album for local hip hop. With production from long-time comrades Charles Parker and Tony Wolf, the beat encompasses a mélange of vintage vocal samples, driving basslines and melancholy woodwind loops.
The track is especially sacred to One Sixth being one of the last opportunities he had to work with Charles Parker, who tragically passed away in 2011.
“The track means a lot to me now because Sam passed away, I really wanted to do more music with him. He was such a dope artist and some of the conversations we had sort of influenced what I’m rapping about on the track.” – One Sixth
Full of illustrative metaphor, One Sixth bares his soul with the upmost conviction. With multiple interpretations available according to the listener’s mentality, One Sixth is somewhat of a lyrical enigma.
