Whether live on stage or in the studio, ISHU’s music is guaranteed to evoke emotions, keep heads bopping and get feet moving!
ISHU’s relocation to Melbourne (from hometown Sydney) has brought a whole new inspiration to his productions. With a repertoire of solo instrumentals and collaborations with the cream of Australia’s and UK’s vocalists and musicians, ISHU’s particular brand of Hip Hop, fused with Dub, Reggae, Drum & Bass and Electronica is reaching audiences far and wide to much acclaim.
The release of ISHU’s debut, self titled EP is set for late April 7, 2008, through
/MGM. Written and produced in his very own modest studio in North Melbourne, it encompasses seven tracks of expressive hip hop, fused with dub, reggae, drum n bass and electronica. With feature artists such as Lotek (UK; Big Dada), Gina Mitchell (SYD; Astronomy Class LP, Basslines), Dragonfly (MELB; Tall Man Soundsystem, Dragonfly & Julez) and more, the EP as a whole represents ISHU’s life influences. Mastered at Melbourne’s legendary Crystal Mastering, it is the perfect blend of organic and synthetic.
With his “live production” setup, comparable to Mad Professor or DJ Krush, ISHU produces all of the sounds created in the studio, on stage, manipulating them live and spontaneously. Launching the EP in Melbourne, guest vocalists appearing with Ishu on the night will be Lotek, Dragonfly, Pataphysics, Rae Pale’, & 3OB. Supported by urban Monk & 1/6, Pataphysics and DJ Bacon, the night will be an eclectic mix of inspirational hip hop, floor shaking dub, bouncing reggae and all things in-between.
As BEAT Magazine in Melbourne said:
“In Australia we encounter our fair share of natural disasters: floods, droughts, and cyclones alike. But, what if you were told that a tornado of due force is set to tear through our sweeping plains and suburban sanctuaries, leaving a trail not of destruction but of swarms of smiling people bopping their heads and shuffling their feet? Bring it on, you say? Well guys as of March 8 it’s going to be on like Donkey Kong when Sydney-turned-Melbournite, Ishu, drops his debut EP on the dance floor of our local Laundry.”
