Beastside were born to be formed. This six team collective hailing from East Sydney is applying old techniques of fast flows, powerful hooks and catchy instrumentation to appease hip hop fans of new and old. Although showcasing an undoubted relationship with ‘traditional’ hip hop, this outfit thrives through experimentation within an emerging genre.
With a strong focus on wordplay and imagery each rapper gets more than enough verse time to show off their unique talent on the mic. Each emcee and producer combines to form a distinct yet cohesive sound that formulates the Beast. Pack Mentality is the first visual off Beastside’s debut Album ‘The Prelude‘ which is out now via Bandcamp & iTunes.
The tracks Pack Mentality and Coming Up are both available as free downloads from triple j Unearthed here.
