Three words; Old. School. Futuristic. It’s been a year coming, but it’s been worth it for the fans; drawing on contemporary Australian and throwback American sounds, this project is the perfect medium.
Predominately produced by in-demand producer Cam Bluff (Illy, Hilltop Hoods & Allday) Peezo has taken a huge step forward from Thanks Heaps with the rhyme patterns, melodies and songwriting reaching the potential displayed in parts with early singles Water, Vibe Out and the latest The Come Up. The diversity is apparent from the smooth RnB/Hip-hop track My Way to the boom bap of Vibe Out through to the new school banger The Come Up. This EP sees Peezo planting his foot firmly in the mainstream as an act to watch out for.
Peezo is a young, talented, emerging Australian MC. Ushering in a wave of new school rap for Australian Hip Hop fans, finding neutrality somewhere between modern-day American sounds and local legends like Hilltop Hoods and Drapht. With the track Thanks Heaps being the first real impact made by the local MC in 2013, which received spot plays on triple j. The year is shaping up as a big one for the former Byron Bay local.
Peezo has just released Old School Futuristic. A solid EP produced by Melbourne’s beast producer, Cam Bluff. The EP is available as a free download from Peezo’s band camp page here.
