DAWG HOUSE RECORDINGS
From The Cradle To The Dawg House.
My rap life started in 2002 alongside my closest friend from down my street Turk Cobain.
Turk, mostly known then as Muz (short for Muslim), got himself a $7 microphone from a local Opp Shop and recorded raps on some generic computer program to show us boys on the bus to school. He'd rap in an American accent and mostly made diss tracks about girls from school. Muz would do his rap, then slap it over a beat, being off-time didn't bother us, it was all about the grimey rhymes.
It took him a while to realise that he could import the beat into the program first and record his raps to it that way.
As a youngster, figuring out how to actually rap on a beat was the best thing ever, and we progressed from there.
Upgrading to a $30 microphone I home-recorded a few songs to show the boys, they showed me love for it and the props I got from the crew were the fuel needed to get the motor running. Thankfully, those first songs no longer exist.
There was some buzz around town and at school about a local rap group 912, which consisted of Briggs and MC Pete. (Briggs is now signed to Golden Era). Hearing these guys do their thing showed me that there was hip hop happening in the Goulburn Valley and as a 15 year old I knew it was something I wanted to be a part of.
Next came the big coincidence, at the age of 16 I found myself working full time with MC Pete, and we've been working together ever since, we're actually in business together.
Working with Pete meant that we became friends, being friends meant that we became partners in rhyme. That's really where things started to kick off properly with the music.
In 2008 we formed a local group called GVC (Goulburn Valley Collective), which consists of Shaney D, Dundee, myself and Pete. We had all met in one way or another through music. We also got Mooroopna young gun L Mac on production duties.
2009, we independently released our debut album "It's Been A Long Time Coming" (which it had been). The album sold several hundred units around the country, particularly in the Goulburn Valley, Brisbane and Adelaide (Dundee's place of origin).
Each member of the group has gone their separate way with regard to music. Although we aren't doing stuff together as a group, we are still supporting each other's projects and putting some shit down together from time to time.
In 2011 I'm working hard on putting a debut solo album together, with most production being provided by MC Pete (The Sleepwalker).
The beats coming from Pete are easily his best work yet, and I think I've matured as an artist to the point where I see this as the perfect time to be writing and recording songs for an official release. The tracks we've put together so far for the project are my best to date, and something I'm proud to show to the hip hop community and of course my fans.
I've also got MC Pete coming over to my studio (The Dawg House) recording his solo release. We both expect to have a finished product for the public consumption in the later months of 2011. Yaheard!
Turtle (beats), L Mac (beats), MC Pete (beats), John at Crystal Mastering, and everyone who has helped and supported my music.
Special shout out to families and friends of the fallen, Tat peeps, Toolamba peeps, members and friends of Outlaws MC - Shepparton Chapter.
To those we've lost, we're always MISSING YOU...
