Undertow (aka DTech MC) is no stranger to the stage. Since releasing his debut LP Minds Believing in 2010, he’s gone on to release 2 more albums with live EDM outfit Kobra Kai.
Over his career he has regularly toured nationally, as well as played large festivals including Stereosonic, Creamfields and Peats Ridge. Along the way he has shared the stage with some of the best in the business, including Skrillex, Deadmau5, Caspa, Dizee Rascal, Scratch Perverts, Dr Octagon, Lyrics Born, DJ Q-Bert and more.
Whether over Drum N Bass riddims, or Heavy Hip Hop beats, the art of connecting metaphors and syllables over crafted instrumentals is, and always will be, his passion…
“Finer Things” is the first single from Undertow’s sophomore album Light in the Distance, which is set to be released in February 2015, via his new independent label, Likeminded Recordings. On this track, the first drop from the new album, Undertow explores his passion for music and life with a complex delivery and hard hitting punch lines.
Production on the track is handled by international producer Tone Knovacane (NYC) who has previously teamed up with the likes of Vinnie Paz and Immortal Technique, among others. From serious to tongue in cheek lyrics, Undertow moves seamlessly across his deep, sample laden beat.
The new album Light in the Distance is a retrospective of Undertow’s life for the last 4 years. The lyrical complexity and musicality across the 17 track release really gives the listener a chance to get inside his head. With this a taste of things to come, “Finer Things” is a great way to kick things off, for what is bound to be a big 2015. It’s now time for Undertow to get back into the heads of music listeners Australia wide!
