Melbourne-based rapper Mantra is thrilled to announce that he has signed with Ten To Two Records – the team behind records from Xavier Rudd & Seth Sentry this past year – ahead of the release of his new single Loudmouth this Friday May 3, 2013.
As one of Australia’s most crucial new talents, ‘your favourite rapper’s favourite rapper’ Mantra is standing on solid ground with five years of touring, two full length releases and a triple j feature album (2011’s Speaking Volumes) already under his belt. Kicking off his career as a producer before being encouraged to pick up a mic, Mantra has emerged as one of the brightest stars in local hip hop. The autobiographical single Loudmouth celebrates the act of following your own destiny, and is the perfect way to usher in the next era of his career as he settles into his new home at Ten To Two Records.
This is 2013’s first signing for Melbourne-based independent label Ten To Two Records, which was launched in November 2012 by label director Ross Macpherson and No Dice Management partner Rowan Robinson with Arts Martial’s Promises Will Get You Nowhere.
Mantra will be hitting the road in support of Loudmouth this June, playing four select shows in Perth, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. Tickets will be available next Thursday May 9 here and the usual outlets.
