We love hearing new Sydney music, especially when it is from our good friends & creative fam.
Many will recognise Sam Hunter from various gigs we have all done together.. we all met a while ago through MIRRAH… he was her HYPE MAN, who popped up on stage as a guest a few times at our gigs as a teenager at some of those infamous GANG OF BROTHERS open mic NYD sessions & he has been one of a resident hosts on rotation at our own jams & DJ gigs over the last few years.
It’s been so mad to see this immensely talented, hard-working kid just grow in his craft, from emcee, singer, and musician away from hosting FUNK jams… the dude is such a mad creative force who is part of some pretty dope musical projects.
Check out this latest musical release he put out that hits right in the heart…. The a new release that came to fruition through some impromptu studio sessions in mid-2022 with MC SAM HUNTER, producer, Delipres, & vocalist JHELISA who all met through mutual friends & organically started to work on a few song ideas.. like it was all supposed to be.
Listen to the new release YOUTUBE & be sure to catch SAM HUNTER doing it live around town at his residency at HUSTLE & FLOW & a host of other venues.
Our good friends OYOBI have been busy in the studio & the clubs the last couple of years hitting everyone in the hearts with their dope original releases, and reworks. They put out this great stripped-back rhythm & blues-inspired gem with KAREN LEE ANDREWS on vocals paying homage to Patti Jo’s Make Me Believe in You from 1972. We have been listening & playing for a while since it was released earlier this year. Check out this dope video & be sure to catch OYOBI & KAREN LEE ANDREWS doing it live around Sydney.
We are absolutly loving this new release MGIC by our brother EDSEVEN featuring the smooth vocals of New York’s TAN BROWN. The new EP is the first
Edseven has made a name for himself in Sydney as one of this finest selectors, it has been so special seeing him slowly carve our a niche globally too as a dope producer over the last few years too.
This latest EP on Inner Tribe Records is one we have been listening to & playing for a while, new cut infused with 90’s Boom-Bap & Neo-Soul Flavours and also features dope remixes by the likes of Spacek, Kid Sublime, Peret Mako.

ALPHAMAMA | Soul of Sydney Local Music Profile #013 (June 2015)
Among the vast ocean of mainstream, middle of the road personalities there stands one woman: a fearless creative force who is passionate about music, life and people.
ALPHAMAMA is not your run of the mill singer. She is a forward-thinking, entrepreneurial artist who is dedicated to growing not only her own profile, but also the urban music scene in Australia. Her sound is soulful but hard-hitting, fused with the best of reggae, funk, hip hop and the 90’s flavour she grew up with. All of these elements have been major influences on her stylings along with New Jack Swing, Jazz and World Music!
