Aussie Hip Hop fraternity to gather in
Perth to launch charity album
Artists and music industry people from all over the country will be flying in to Perth to celebrate the release of the Australian Hip Hop Supports CanTeen album on Saturday the 11th February at the Bakery in Northbridge Western Australia.
Three hundred lucky VIP’s will get a chance attend the national album listener party with celebrity DJ’s manning the decks and the 32-track album played at intervals during this most auspicious of hip hop nights.
The charity album was the final project directed by the late Robert Hunter who died of cancer aged 36, a few weeks short of its release and is available nationwide in record stores and on iTunes.
More than forty artists including ARIA winners Hilltop Hoods, Drapht, and Koolism donated a brand new track to the late Robert Hunter for inclusion on a charity album which is raising funds for CanTeen, an Australian charity that supports young people living with cancer.
“It’s going to be strange without Hunts being there but I’m looking forward to getting together and listening to the album with all the crew.” said Layla who’s track Love Times Pie Recurring.. is receiving airplay on Triple J and indie stations throughout Australia.
“With this many artists in one room anything could happen” said Porsah Laine, who also features on the album “Spontaneous collabs on the mikes are likely… this will be a night that we won’t be forgetting in a long time.”
The album is proudly sponsored by MGM the Groove Merchants, Media Arts Lawyers, Streetpress Australia, and Monster Energy.
Doors open at 8pm for this 18+ listening party. For your chance to attend this VIP INVITATION ONLY event, read X-Press, Drum Magazine, and The Wire this week and check the project website http://www.ozhiphopsupportscanteen.com for full details.
