Scoobie: A rapper from Illawarra on the way to big things

The other day I hooked up a interview with rapper Scoobie. Who I had come across through friends who sent me some links to his music. As a avid fan of rap and especially rap with a gangsta vibe I was interested and had to find out more.

So. I organized the interview and went to meet him at his pad where I got to find out more about him and his latest EP. Which I listened to in full on the way up on the train and it’s a decent release at that. Which I might add is now downloaded onto my phone and added to the ever-growing collection of great new, local and Australian releases.

I got a real Schoolboy Q vibe from the EP you can judge for yourself as you give it a listen.

He’s in the wings waiting for a chance to be something big and on his way to a solid fan base.

With hard work and dedication, this rapper will go a mile and a half.

Scoobie has an amazing view of the city from his pad where he can sit and dream of being so close to the success while looking over the CBD of Melbourne.


Check out his latest EP Drunk Broke and Almost Famous.

Amanda Santuccione “Twenty Minutes To Nine”

Amanda Santuccione has been working hard to create art for a lot of years. Being a performer, musician, comedian and all round artist. She recently put in a lot of work towards her fringe show Twenty Minutes To Nine.

As she’s someone I know I thought I’d sit down and have a chat to her about her show, suicide, death, grief and why these things aren’t being talked about enough and why they should be.

Donny Benét Interview

It’s always great to go to a show and organize a quick interview with the person you’re seeing that night. This nights artist I chatted to the man of groove and pretty rad bass talent Donny Benét outside the Northcote social club.

We talked about shaving, the latest single, releasing his next album and when he’ll be in Melbourne town next.

Can’t watch rage because it’s daylight or during the week? It’s okay, just watch the closest thing. The digital video of his latest single Konichiwa.

Get the funk and be Funky.

Scaphis Interview

I talked with two members of Schapis who have recently released their debut album Rituals of Torture and Death.

I stumbled across this band online and discovered they were from Melbourne so I went to catch up with them on the winter solstice fittingly.
