Crash Hot is a 3 piece Hip Hop/Rap group from Sydney, Australia. High in the Friendly Sky is their debut album, (available here). The first singles released from the album, ‘Yours Truly (Stupid As F*ck)’ and ‘Window Down’ have received airplay on triple j and various community radio stations.
Both tracks have been featured as part of Amrap’s AirIt initiative that distributes contemporary Australian music to community broadcasters.
The first wave of the post Hip Hop generation has reached maturity and things sound different. Combining samples, live instrumentation, raps and whatever other ingredients happened to be accessible in the studio, ‘High in the Friendly Sky’ is a bizarre bouillabaisse of beats, influenced by artists such as T-La Rock, Crash Crew, Ultimate Force, Beast Coast and anything that came out on CTI Records from 1967 to 1978.
Please join rapper Bang, producer and multi-instrumentalist Bong YZA and DJ Jimmy Now for the soundtrack from their piece of the rock.
