In May, OKENYO, L-FRESH The Lion & Wordlife’s Adam Bozzetto teamed up with five newcomers from non-profit organisation Heaps Decent, to pen some tracks which were later performed at Heaps Gay’s Vivid Sydney festival, and Quicksand is one of the results.
Today, Music Feeds is premiering the track by up-and-coming hip-hop artist Ravin and rapper ATA, which has Holy & Emily on the hook. It’s a charismatic hip-hop number which effortlessly melds electronica with a floaty hook that sounds incredibly polished.
Ravin and ATA performed the song together a few weeks ago, which you can watch below, but now we also have the studio version to get stuck into.
All the artists involved in Quicksand were recently a part of a Heaps Decent workshop, which saw the organisation, which works with young people from disadvantaged communities, team up with local label Elefant Traks, as well as Heaps Gay.
Given that all the artists on Quicksand are newcomers, they’ve delivered a hip-hop cut far beyond their years, proving that they all have an exciting future within the ever-flourishing Australian music scene.
