Brisbane MC/Producer Calski has announced the release of the third single from his EP ‘Folkus’. The track, ‘Just Clap’, is an undeniably funky dancefloor starter featuring renowned Canberra-born MC, Hau, and will be released on 7” vinyl by pioneer Queensland hip hop label Hydrofunk Records.
A meeting of two Australian Hip Hop veterans that promises to delight, ‘Just Clap’ sees Hau providing his trademark wordplay over an infectious Calski-laced bass-driven groove reminiscent of James Brown, Ozomatli and Prince all rolled into one.
The ‘Just Clap’ 7” is out 19 July 2016 and boasts the equally impressive B-side track ‘One Hand On The Bible’ featuring favourites Briggs and I AM D. While the EP ‘Folkus’ drops on the same date, those who purchase the ‘Just Clap’ 7″ vinyl single will receive the full 5 track EP via free download. Along with the vinyl tracks ‘Folkus’ features Aus MC’s Dialectrix, Sinks & Raven.
Calski has been a consistent and unmatched presence in the Hip Hop community in Australia since the early 2000’s. Known for his unmistakable production and profound lyricism, Calski is also a DJ and multi-instrumentalist, playing bass, keys and guitar.
Having supported the likes of Ghostface Killah (USA), Public Enemy (USA), Total Eclipse (USA), The Herd, Urthboy, Mantra, Spit Syndicate and Joelistics, Calski has long been considered a peer amongst Australian Hip Hop greats and attributes his style to the influences of Pete Rock, 9th Wonder, DJ Premier, Black Milk, Apollo Brown and more.
