Emerging from Sydney’s vibrant hip hop community in 2006, the duo known as Mind Over Matter quickly established themselves as artists to be reckoned with. Through their highly lauded mixtape For Our Hip Hoppers, they successfully built and earned a loyal fan base nationally.
In 2008 Mind Over Matter released their debut album entitled Keepin’ It Breezy to industry wide praise, culminating in a nomination for Australian album of the year in triple j’s J Mag. With the success of this debut combined with their pre-established following cemented by back to back outstanding releases, MCs Willow and Smiles Again have toured the country extensively and have seen their following grow to heights that once didn’t seem possible.
After hitting sold out venues in a multitude of locations across the country Mind Over Matter have proved themselves to be one of the most highly charismatic, energetic, and creative live acts this country has to offer. To date the duo have played along side an incredible range of international acts including Jebediah, Method Man & Redman, Masta Ace, Wordsworth, Planet Asia, DJ Crazy Caz (the late Tupac’s DJ), Mystro (UK) as well as Australian heavy weights Bliss n Eso (Mind Over Matter were selected as support for the trio on their National Get Loose Tour and Flying Colours Tour), Muph n Plutonic, The Potbelleez, Pegz, Drapht, Downsyde, Pez & 360, Phrase & DJ Flagrant, Def Wish Cast and many more.
The dynamic Sydney duo have also performed at multiple festivals, both locally and interstate and have even hit stages internationally, travelling to Thailand as well as Osaka, Japan, performing some incredibly well received shows as well as filming a video for a collaboration track titled How We Get Down.
