Between NOW and this Thursday you have only a few days to flip a script. to bake a beat, to drop a bomb.
This Saturday is Record Store Day and to celebrate an awesome home grown local release Northside have the debut 12” from Hiatus Kaiyote’s forthcoming record. The first single is “Get Sun” featuring a face melting string and horn arrangement from the one and only Arthur Verocai !!
Now this is a very important part: to celebrate our future soul cherubs’ 12” single, Northside is throwing back to some original Hiatus Kaiyote funky Fitzroy folklore business: a beat battle for the chance to win the prize !!
For those who don’t know, back in the ye olde days of Hiatus Kaiyote beginnings circa 2011-2012ish, they played at The Evelyn Hotel every Tuesday night. . It was hot. But what was special, was each week they’d choose a theme or a song for local beatmakers to flip, and host a beat battle !!
PRODUCERS, BEATMAKERS, MUSICIANS — HERE’S THE RUN DOWN!!
Register here to get yourself a sample stem set for the single Get Sun. Cook up your finest beat with that aforementioned sample
Shoot your track across in .mp3 format (and feel free to throw in a video of yourself playing it too) by email by 5pm this Thursday 10th June
Tune in to Northside’s socials on Saturday to find out who wins the signed copy of Get Sun and the headphones!! And look out on Friday to sample some of the sweet beat treats.
THE WINNER OF THE BEAT BATTLE receives a SIGNED copy of the GET SUN 12″ and a pair of AIAIAI X NINJA TUNE headphones.
The @aiaiai_aust_nz x @ninjatune headphones are made out of recycled vinyl, so its really a full circle of happiness for the crowned legend.
