Debut Album ‘Identity Thieves’ (Available September 6) from JayCee: The spacious, minimalistic sounds with melodically spat Aussie cheek that ornate the childish nature of the relentlessly driven Jaycee, is returning after leaving serious impressions as a newcomer with his first official release. The independent, Brisbane based lyric-smith and producer has been working profusely since March to announce the release of his debut album ‘ Identity Thieves’ (September 5, 2015). When ‘Vibe’ was released on March 7th, it had JayCee and his hip-hop sound labelled as: “Very promising.” (ToneDeaf) “One of the smoothest hip-hop tracks I’ve heard in a while.” ( Howl & Echoes) “Vibe sets the Tone for the debut album.” (All Aussie Hip Hop) The debut album, ‘ Identity Thieves’ flows with fresh beats, rhythms, instrumentation and lyrics that resonate into a whole consolidated sound. Taking two years to piece this into something to run with, he can now not only say that it is his stamps his own time, but is something for the playful youth and free spirited souls out there to reminisce on good times, much like his. Highly anticipated by his community of fans who packed the H milton Hotel recently with over 200 heads showing up for his first live show, the album launch at The Zoo on the 5th of September will raise the mast’s for a new Aussie Hip-Hop voyage.
