Having been mentored by the likes of industry legend John Payne (WIDEawake & Death Row Records) to touring with some of the worlds hip hop elite from Ice Cube, Bone Thugs N Harmony, Xzibit, KRS One, D12 and many more Big Dave is set to drop his latest single The Original featuring world renown hip hop artist Snoop Dogg to national media in the coming weeks.
‘The Original’ is the second single to be released from Big Dave’s upcoming 2013 album Self Made being released through MGM Distribution. I am sure I need not introduce Snoop Dogg or as some might know him by his alter ego Snoop Lion but for those that haven’t heard that name before Snoop Dogg is one of the world’s highest selling Hip Hop artists of all time with an accolade of successive awards and highest selling hits.
“Having grown up listening to American Hip Hop I feel truly honoured to have gone from the outside looking in to all of a sudden releasing my own album featuring so many of the artists I am a fan of myself” Big Dave.
With Big Dave based in Canberra, Snoop in LA, producer Grantwho on the Gold Coast and engineer Sameer Sengupta (Ministry Of Sound) based in Sydney the quartet made use of the web and modern technology to create a single that captures the smooth vibe of Snoop Dogg, the Australian flavour of Big Dave and the bass driven hip hop house sound of Grantwho in a track that is truly The Original.
Big Dave’s debut album Self Made features the who’s who of iconic hip hop from Snoop Dogg, Kurupt, Joel Ortiz (Slaughterhouse), Necro, WC, Kyza making Big Dave’s feature album a fan collective album not to be missed!!
The Original is scheduled for national radio service on Friday 29th March 2013 and available through MGM and all good music stores nationally on Thursday April 4 2013.
