1. Low Budget (Hip Hop, AUS)
Since their emergence in 2005, Low Budget has established an enduring presence on the fickle Australian hip-hop scene. Following the widespread buzz generated by their self-released mixtape in 2005, the group’s jazzy debut album Magnasound was one of the surprise success stories of 2006, drawing universal enthusiasm and praise from critics and fans alike.
On the back of the critical triumph and public acclaim of Magnasound, Low Budget quickly solidified their reputation as one of the most energetic and engaging acts on Melbourne’s live scene, amassing a long list of support slots for international acts such as People Under the Stairs, Atmosphere and J Live, alongside local names including The Funkoars, Pegz, Muph & Plutonic and Downsyde. The process of crafting songs for their celebrated live show was instrumental in forging the group’s second longplayer, Laserdisc.
Laserdisc sounds like nothing else on the market, with Low Budget’s producer and DJ, Debonair P, intertwining bone-rattling basslines with obscure disco and boogie grooves to create an intoxicating blend of thick dancefloor funk. Reinterpreting the sample-driven production philosophy employed by great hip hop producers of the past through his own mirrorball-swinging sensibilities, Debonair has emerged with an attention-grabbing sound that is entirely his own.
The neck-snapping harmonies emanating from Debonair’s sampler are perfectly complemented by the humour-filled and deftly-delivered lyrics of Low Budget’s MC, Gentleman Gene. The pair’s finely honed chemistry is aptly demonstrated on Laserdisc’s lead single ‘Tailor Made’, on which Gene nimbly delivers memorable line after memorable line atop one of the year’s best basslines. A versatile wordsmith, Gentleman Gene commands album highlights such as the poplocking ‘Freak Mystique’ and the raunchy ‘Knockout Performance’ with style, while also engaging in conceptualism on tracks including ‘Saturday Night’ and ‘2082’ with equal finesse.
Eschewing hip hop’s current obsession with guest vocalists and producers, Low Budget again prove their individuality by holding their own throughout the course of Laserdisc. By channelling their individual strengths to fashion a skip-proof, unique and memorable album, Low Budget is certain to capture the attention and imagination of listeners of all persuasions.
