What initially just started as a bit of fun battling with the homies and rapping at house parties soon turned into a full fledged passion for P.Link and in 2002 Tranquil Artillery was formed. The local group was made up of 8 high school mates who all shared a love for hip hop – Brez(Keyboard/Bass), Lorne(Drums), DJ A-Tap & 5 MC’s – P.Link, J.Mac, DownPat, Lystik & Eazy.
In 2010 P. Link, formed ‘The Aphilliates’ alongside his long time partner in crime J.Mac and the newly recruited DJ Rellik. They recorded a self titled 12 track mixtape over jacked and original beats at Pang studios and started repping the new moniker at live shows all over Melbourne.
Under the guidance of Trem & Must, P.Link formed Rawthentic Records in early 2012 and went onto drop his EP as the labels first official release.
P had shown a clear progression and development in style since the days of Tranquil Artillery and had really found his comfort zone telling stories and personal accounts over gritty boom bap beats, the kind of stuff that he was raised on.
Social-activist, Rapper and Music curator Titan Debirioun, has been producing fierce Melbourne hip-hop. Working within the Sudanese and communities at large Titan creates funky political conscious Hip Hop, paving the way for black and indigenous artists in Australia.
A natural progression from DJing into Production has seen Lotus develop into a solo artist under Lotus Moonchild. Her first song ‘Unbridled’ on WOW V2, via Inner Ocean Records, has seen her featured on an all-female Beat Tape compiled by Melbourne beat legend SADIVA. A solo EP release is scheduled for late 2019.
