Pataphysics Tip of the Spear (PBS Feature Record)

Pataphysics latest offering is on that good Melbourne hip hop, soul, jazz tip. While it might still put them on an ASIO watch list, the sharp lyricism provides informed articulated critiques as well alternatives to the current dominant paradigm.

Delving into ideas, theory and reflections around homogenous culture, economic structures, resistance, systems of learning, illegal detention, invasion, collective depression, utilitarian norms, love and more.

Personnel on the album include Diego Villalta, Kaiit, Allysha Joy, Aamer Rahman, Ramesh Fernandez, Robbie Thorpe, Sk Simeon, Lay the mystic, Horatio Luna, and more.

Nabihah Iqbal Weighing of the Heart (featured on The Breakfast Spread)

Many musicians like to speak of versatility, but Nabihah Iqbal has better grounds than most. She boasts an MPhil (focused on African history) from Cambridge, experience working in human rights law and a black belt in Karate. Formerly known as Throwing Shade, she’s ditched that moniker to embrace the name she was born with. Readying her debut album for Ninja Tune, Weighing of the Heart is a big statement in two ways: first, because she’s taken her real name to stand proudly as a female British Asian artists making music and, secondly, because she’s moved her music in a bolder, more expansive direction.
