Biography

Perth, Australia (1996 – present)

Downsyde are an Australian hip hop group from Perth, Australia that formed in 1996.

Downsyde inspiration seems to be derived from a culmination of Middle Eastern, Aboriginal, South American sounds, and samples from obscure animated films. This diversity sits well within their compositions and is also displayed in their latest release “When The Dust Settles”. Consisting of 3 MC’s (Optamus, Dazastah, and Dyna Mikes) and 3 live musicians, they have been performed for over 7 years, specialising in conquering the festival audiences of Australia. Their lyrics reflect issues of life, respect, culture, racism, tolerance, self esteem and of course, the ladies. The result is hip hop that neatly balances the essential ingredients of quality music – beats, soul, melody, politics and party - the essence of Downsyde.
