On Country nominated for WAM Song Of The Year award!

It’s true! Our song ‘On Country’ feat. Bryte MC, Della Rae Morrison, Ronnie Smith and Charley, has been nominated for a 2015 WAM Song Of The Year award in the “Outstanding Indigenous” category.


We’d like to thank everyone involved. By the time we finished creating the song 14 people had contributed, and every contribution makes this song as powerful as it is.

Firstly, thanks to Bryte for engaging with enthusiasm from the very first mention of the idea, up at Parliament House for the first call to action against the forced closures. Your strong verse right at the centre of the song adds so much power and authenticity – the song would not be what it is without you. Thanks for being so deadly, so keen and so easy to work with; no doubt we will do plenty more work together in the future. Continue reading

Rights & Responsibilities ft. MD & Charley Caruso

Introducing the first official single from our debut album:
Rights & Responsibilities (ft. MD & Charley Caruso)

Much of this song came together by chance. We have bought many beats off Mdusu over the years and one day he asked to buy back one of the beats, (generously offering to pay more than he sold it to us for). Instead we came to a different agreement.

Mdusu would exchange the beat for another one we liked and also lay down a verse.

I (Shareef) had found this simple, crisp beat in his collection a long time ago and liked it, but Percuss had knocked it back on at least two occasions. Continue reading
