March 2015

Kicking off at the Chelsea Heights Hotel on Friday the 13th of March, Urban Spread featuring Australian hip hop's fastest rising star Allday, supported by Ivan Ooze, Peezo and special guest dj's into the wee hours. All this mayhem will be repeated at the Village Green Hotel on Saturday the 14th March for those of you who are suckers for sonic bliss of the highest order.


Allday is leading a new era in Hip Hop for Australia. After skipping out on art school, Allday managed to successfully survive on stolen sachets of microwave rice. Rice theft aside, he also managed to drop multiple mixtapes, slide into triple j’s world famous Hottest 100 Poll with ‘So Good’, debut an EP at #1 on the AIR chart (and an almost unheard of #18 in the ARIA Charts), as well playing a whole bunch of sold out shows and becoming a favourite at festivals around Australia.

Ivan Ooze

It’s been a heady couple of months for Melbourne indie rapper IVAN OOZE as he has literally been catapulted into the spotlight. With an EP scheduled to drop on August 14th IVAN OOZE decided he would release a freestyle video every Friday for the ten weeks prior to its release, which turned him into a viral hip hop sensation. With his fascination for rhyming and a signature super-fast flow, in less than a few weeks IVAN OOZE (Ben Townsend) began experiencing the support and attention that takes artists lifetimes to achieve. After a heady 2014, things don't look to be slowing down for Melbourne's newest indie rapper with a mixtape in the works to drop early 2015 and a whole lot more on the horizon!


Three words. Old. School. Futuristic. Ushering in a wave of new school rap for Australian Hip Hop fans, Peezo is finding neutrality... somewhere between modern-day American sounds and local legends like The Hilltop Hoods and Drapht.
