Formerly Phatchance. Emotive, Independent Australian Hip-Hop. Fuck the haters.
Congratulations @hilltophoods on #16 in the @triplej Hottest 100 Aus albums of all time! Two in the top 25 - massive.
"Every leg on their current “Hey Where’s Your DJ” tour has attracted large crowds, no doubt signifying the ever-growing hype surrounding them and possibly placing them as ‘the next big thing’ in not just Australian hip-hop, but Australian music in general."
“Whether it was the way these two performers fed off each other so productively or simply the fact that the performance itself was riddled with musical sophistication from all corners of the stage, somehow the whole thing fell together with alarming simplicity for all of the
complexity of its elements.”
“‘Inkstains (Acoustic)’ is a truly wonderful EP, and if you are someone that keeps questioning the musical integrity of hip-hop music then give this a listen and then go eat your words. This is hip-hop at its most beautiful. 5/5”
“Inkstains (Acoustic) smashes apart any stereotypes hip-hop has been branded with, and does so with stylish quality. This is just something you have to try.”
“I want to like Australian hip-hop a lot more than I do, which on a scale of one to ten is at a generous 2.5 at the moment. But, guys like the aforementioned Phatchance will probably win me over in the end. He’s original, quick witted and cuts a sentence like Poe never could dream of.”
“The catchiest journal you'll ever peek at... the unflinchingly honest self-diagnosis of an unsigned songwriter... Phatchance’s soul-baring sincerity is a breath of fresh air.”
“'Inkstains' is as good as anything that has come out of the depths of Aussie Hip-Hop. It's of a high enough quality to match anything put together recently by the seminal Hip-Hop benchmarks of the Herd or the Hilltop Hoods and serves as a very impressive debut for Phatchance.”
“As impressive for his lyrical skill as he is for his determination to promote himself and his music while staying an independent artist... Phatchance has carefully crafted a debut record that’s as accessible to non-hip hop fans as it is to the diehards.”
“Even in his darkest moments, Phatchance is an intelligent lyricist and a masterful storyteller, and is undoubtedly a rising talent to watch.”
“With a solid reputation, super strong track presence and a selection of beats from unheralded producers; Phatchance has produced an impressive glimpse into the future... rather than pitch a BBQ track at the charts, the Sydney emcee drops insights that many older contemporaries wish they had.”
“I can't claim to be an expert on hip-hop, but I reckon rapping and MCing is much like singing: you need good lyrics, rhythm, flow and tone. Phatchance has it all. Couple that with solid production, and you've got yourself a burgeoning hip-hop star. I say: get on the bandwagon now!”
“Phatchance delivers on these topics with intelligent lyrics and killer beats, this album holds its own among the top releases of this year.”
“Intense - perfectly complimentary (and intelligent) lyrics paired with deep production. Liking all the Phatchance i'm hearing.”
“Phatchance is one of the local hip hop scenes most prolific quiet achievers. But he won”t be staying quiet that much longer.”
“Chance manages to strike a balance by being impassioned without being a dickhead, and being cool enough that even the rock kids will dig it. I predict big things. Give it a spin and see if you agree.”
“I won’t sit here and pretend to be an Aussie hip hop connoisseur, but I know when I like something and I’m quite taken with this song.”
“Instead of adopting the accents and attitudes of Americans, Waters rhymes... in his own voice [which] not only adds to the confessional tone of the lyrics, it brings a different texture to the music.”
“If the releases didn't already do it, this launch has demonstrated that the 'I Forget, Sorry!' moniker is one to look out for”
“Phatchance totally nails it here - great beats, excellent flow. A real head-nodder of a track.”
