The pool of talented hip hop artists emerging from Brisbane is immense in both size and variety, and the potential of the BNE throng is equally large. Emerging star Tides is no exception.
Having flexed his abilities on stage and in studio with the likes of I AM D, Midas.Gold & Travy P in recent times, the Brisbane MC brings it all to the table alongside recent Allday collaborator Erik Sanders for his latest offering, Down. The single is the first from Tides’ debut EP, his biggest project to date.
The track slithers through a silky smooth production of fellow Brisbane producer James Angus and serves as an appreciation of how far the Brisbane hip hop community has come.
“I feel like we can never go back now and we have to keep progressing and moving the scene forward. It was written at a time when myself and Erik were starting to realize that this thing we enjoy doing is actually starting to go really well for us both and we don’t ever want to go back to where we started” – Tides.
Down is our first official taste from Tides’ official debut EP Vertigo, for which it can be revealed will have a total of nine tracks, and will feature guest vocals of I AM D, Narly, Travy P and of course Erik Sanders.
