Guilty Simpson and Katalyst Australian Tour

For years Guilty Simpson has been a rock on the Detroit hip-hop circuit alongside those such as J Dilla, Slum Village, Eminem (whom Guilty still calls “Marshall”) & D12, Obie Trice, Proof, Phat Kat and Black Milk. Since the early 00′s, Guilty has emerged as a sound to be reckoned and an MC to keep on your radar.

Sydney based Katalyst has been behind the scenes of the music industry for years, producing for others since the mid-90s; and every one of his solo releases has earnt him an ARIA nomination in Australia, establishing him with a strong fan base worldwide.

Detroit MC Guilty Simpson and Sydney DJ / Producer Katalyst first linked up to work on the Quakers album with Geoff Barrow for Stones Throw Records. It was a good match and not long after Stones Throw approached Katalyst to do more work with Guilty.

Since then, they have both been cooking up something special in the lab with a collaborative record, due for release in 2015. Whilst no-one knows for sure what exactly they’ve been working on, you can get a sneak peek if you grab a ticket to one of their shows on this national tour.

Jordan Rakei: Bodysnatchers

I’m always interested to find out an artist’s musical influences. There’s always the answers you expect to hear that everyone is a fan of – particularly when they’ve been pigeon-holed into a specific genre so usually they will list the artists that you want to hear.

In this particular write-up, that wasn’t the case.

Brisbane’s Jordan Rakei has listed Radiohead as one of his favourite bands and yesterday, he released a cover of one of his favourite songs, Bodysnatchers.

A soul artist covering Radiohead? Can you imagine it?
