9 Perth rappers to watch in 2018.

Here are 9 Perth rappers to look out for in 2018.

Personally, mainstream Australian hip-hop still hasn’t quite managed to find it’s feet. For me, breakthrough groups like Hilltop Hoods, Horror Show and Bliss N Eso have been progressive for Aussie hip-hop only in that they’ve helped launch it into the somewhat mainstream. However, when artists have to conform to a set of expectations to get commercial play time, their style can become oversaturated. What should be encouraged in Australian hip-hop is originality, innovation, a progressive message, and like Australia’s multicultural society – embrace music and sounds from everywhere. For me, over the past few years, the majority of Perth artists on the scene have been listenable but their lack of ingenuity has failed to really get me excited about hip-hop in my city. However, over the past year, I have been blown away by Perth’s up and coming hip-hop talent. Here are nine artists progressing Australian hip-hop with their own unique sound and making the Perth scene a force to be reckoned with.

TOYOTOMI HIDEYOSHI

Toyotomi Hideyoshi Rocket Ships

Toyotomi Hideyoshi has been active on the Perth hip-hop scene since 2012. Toyotomi produces an atmospheric cloud trap sound infused with an unlimited flow of mellow, rugged vocals which seem to hit the beat precisely where they need to. ROCKETSHIPS was released last month and is Toyotomi’s first full-length LP release – Get it while it’s hot here. 

Label: Boogie Nights

 SPLIT FIGURE

Split Figure perth rapper

Butter smooth flows and catchy R&B hooks. Fremantle artist Split Figure has only entered the scene a couple of years ago, but bangers like Persian Wine and Brûlée prove he’s got a bright future ahead of him. Stream his latest EP Créme De La Créme on Spotify or Soundcloud.

Label: Unsigned

 T$OKO

tsoko s.o.x rapper

T$oko fka S.O.X aka Tinashe Soko is a Zimbabwean born, Perth based rapper. Solid tracks like Blasphemy/ The Mirror honor hip-hops true roots while hard-hitting singles like Parlay and his latest release 4th Quarter bring the heat to the table. It’s no suprise he supported Future when he came to Perth in September earlier this year. T$oko linked up with Perth producer Jimmy Drones recently for his latest single 4th Quarter, and it BANGS so check it out here… PULL UP!!

 Label: Co-sign A$AP MOB *

LLEHNA

Llehna perth rapper

Llehna is (Including Toyotomi) another member of Perth group TUFFBOYS and has recently released an EP of his own. Llehna’s latest EP Llenhas World is definitely one to listen to. It’s Fast, lyrically creative and almost every track contain hooks that are catchy AF – “swiper no swipey”.  Check out Llenhas World on Soundcloud here.

Label: Boogie Nights

POW! NEGRO

pow negro perth rapper

Fast, crazy and out-of-this-world creative. Fremantle’s hip-hop/ jazz group POW! Negro produce a unique sound that brings a whole lot of energy to the table. I haven’t seen a Perth band blow up as fast as these guys did – and I’m not surprised either. You’re lucky if you caught these guys live at Code Red festival earlier this month – They are killing it and there’s no stopping them. Their latest EP is called Jasmine & Licorice and you can stream it on Spotify here. They will also be releasing a new single ‘Flesh Off The Bone’ on November 25th at Jack Rabbit Slims. See you there.

Label: Unsigned

 HYCLASS

hyclass rapper perth

Maori/Samoan rapper HYCLASS produces some insanely catchy beats which compliments her world-class flow. Her latest project I NEED YOU is a must listen. Her EP offers some ol’ fashioned raps and hip-hop beats that everyone can vibe to. She recently supported Marksman Lloyd at The Sewing Room and you can check out her full length EP on bandcamp here.

ZIGGY RAMO

Ziggy Ramo’s music provides an insight into the silent injustices of Aboriginal Australia among other social issues. Ramo’s productions range from poppy funk hits like his latest track YKWD to tracks provide a strong and hard-hitting message like Black Thoughts. Check him out on Spotify or Soundcloud.

Label: Ramo Records

AND BEYOND

And Beyond perth rapper

Check them and their latest single 2 Cents on Soundcloud here.

Label: Unsigned

LBFR MIKEY

lbfrmikey perth rapper

LBFRMikey spits evocative, smooth and R&B infused flows as well as hooks that prove the upcoming artist’s mature talent. Mikey frequently links up with Perth producer talent Dub A and together they create a world-class sound. Stream his latest single KATRINA here.

Meet your 2018 Guild President: Kombo Mashumba

Murdoch Guild elections might be a relatively low-key affair compared to how things go down at other universities (cough, UWA). I’m never sure whether that’s good (because you don’t get accosted) or bad (because I’d like to think people care about who runs our guild). If you actually attend your classes, though, you probably would have seen the posters up on campus last week – and now we have a new guild executive for next year! I decided to sit down and chat with Kombo Mashumba, our incoming president, so you guys can get to know who’ll be running the show in 2018.

Okay, Kombo – to start us off, tell me more about yourself!

K: I’m from Zimbabwe, spent my whole life there. I took a gap year and got to start my own business, open a bar. It’s very easy to start a business in Zimbabwe, so that way I’m an entrepreneur. Then I was so excited to come to Australia, and it wasn’t what I expected! It was hard integrating in a new country and making friends was also slightly different. I was the only one who came to Murdoch from my school, so everything was new.

The first year I came, all my friends were exchange students so after 6 months I had to start all over! That’s when I actually met people in my classes and all that.

I heard you’re a big fan of beef and onions. Should we expect that to feature a prominent role in Guild next year?

K: I am a big fan, I think everyone is a big fan. If you look at the value pizzas, for 5 bucks, beef and onions is the best. I think I’ll continue pushing beef and onions at Murdoch.

Guild President Kombo Mashumba

You must be pleased with the results of the election. What was the key to your success?

K: We had a big team and that was a good team. The people were all from different backgrounds, different societies, different schools so they each had access to their own friend group. It’s like – how can I say? Each person has access to 10 people I don’t. And our tactic was to talk to people, not just hand them a flyer and let them walk away. I guess living in the village I also know quite a few people. But I give all the props to my team.

What have you learnt from being involved with Guild over the past year?

K: I’ve been the president of the International Student Society and I guess I learnt that, ah, things don’t always go your way or to get things going your way it takes time. You’ll be like, I’m always correct, let’s do it my way, but you find out that people might have more experience or know more about certain things than you do, so I guess it’s about being humble but also pushing it because I felt like the guild wasn’t really that involved with students, and we were separate to them in a way. We weren’t on the ground being like: ‘hey come to my event,’ so people don’t know who is actually in the guild.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

What’s you and your team’s plans for next year?

K: We’ve got big plans, big plans. I’m guessing you want more specific! There’s obviously saving campus culture, getting involved in educational reforms at the university. You can see them happening in the business school with blended learning and there are positives and negatives but we want to represent the positives and remove the negatives. And I’ll say a lot of students complain about affordability, we want to make things a little more within their reach. Obviously that takes time and if it’s not us it’s the guys the year after but we want to make something noticeable so students can say the guild actually did this for me.

What’s the first thing you’ll be working on when you get in there?

 

K: The first thing I want to so is combine the smart rider with the student card. One of my team involved with transperth bought the idea to us, and they actually do it at ECU already. So that would be the first thing because one of the first things students get is their ID card.

One less card for my wallet! What’s one thing people don’t know about you?

K: That’s a tricky one! I guess I’m scared of birds. I don’t trust birds.

G: Okay, is this all birds or some particular bird?

K: All birds, All birds are the same.

G: Did you have a traumatic bird related experience?

K: I just can’t read them, we used to have turkeys and turkey’s chase people around. So now if it’s a small bird, a big bird, I just don’t trust it. I know it sound’s crazy, but –

G: No, no. I grew up with swooping magpies, I can understand the sentiment.

K: Exactly, and now I’m hearing about these magpies, you know, they do attack. I’m afraid of birds that don’t attack, now I hear that there’s one’s that do?!

What would you say is your favourite thing about Murdoch?

K: The perfect answer would be the campus but I won’t say that. I will say Newport Tuesdays at the village.

What are your other plans for next year?

K: I’ll be studying full time alongside the guild job. It’s a lot of work but not practical, personal work. There’s a lot of meetings. What I also want to do is visit the people so they can see what I am doing. Being a full time student, that’s where students are, so I can relate. The work is there but there are so many students who also work full time too. I look up to them because that’s what I’ll be doing next year. My door will be open for their tips!

I heard there are people in Guild who are hesitant to work with you next year. What do you think about that rumour?

K: I guess I’d say, there’s no perfect leader. There’s no one where people will thing: “Oh, if this guy gets in we’re gonna all be happy.”  People are always upset about it. I’m looking forward to proving them wrong. It’s gonna be interesting. That’s the good thing about this, it’s a democracy. I come from a country where it’s not a democracy at all. So people can say ‘what you’re doing is wrong’ and then I can ask myself why they are saying this, and think about it.

Some people are against me getting in because I’m an international student. A big part of the reason why I ran is because I felt like international students weren’t getting represented at a higher level. Why should it just be local students getting it?  We all want a great university experience.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

What would you say to the people who voted?

K: Thanks for voting, we won by a landslide. I don’t think there’s been an election where people have actually voted like that, which is amazing, so I’d like to thank them for putting their trust in me. And for being patient because the system was so slow!

And who ran against you?

K: I’d thank them for the fact that they had good policies which I will steal later! Also because they encouraged me to work harder, and gave students more options to choose from. I hope they will be willing to criticise me next year and keep me working hard.

What’s something that you would change about Murdoch if you could?

K: One thing I’d want to change is the campus culture, you know, this place I’d want it to be one where you can meet new people and network, I’d want it to just be a friendly environment. Another one would be cheaper parking. If I could make parking cheaper, that would be amazing.

If you can find a way, I’ll be eternally grateful. What are you looking forward to most about being guild president?

K: Besides the office? [laughs] I guess getting involved in the issues at the heart of students, that’s the thing I’m really wanting to do. I guess because I was an entrepreneur before I want to put forward ideas that should be great but also getting students involved with what the guild does. Like, putting a poll up for ideas. People won’t say a party sucks if they actually planned it. So that’s why I want to be the leader who gets behind everyone, and says let’s do this.

Anything else you want to say?

K: 2018 is going to be a different year. Expect big things.

THE GREAT EIGHT UNIVERSITY ETIQUETTES

By Carmel Hooshmand

Are you a new student? A “Fresher” newly emerging from the protective womb of high school? Or maybe you’re an older student, who realized the real world is terrifying and you’ve come back to the blissful denial of adulthood which is the label “student”. No matter which side of the spectrum you’re from, university is an ever evolving multi-headed dog that mutates every time you think you’ve figured it out. So where to begin when it comes to the basic university etiquette?

The Great Eight University Etiquettes: The G8!

1. Personal Hygiene

Yes, this is being addressed as “etiquette”. Welcome to university. Nobody more than a 5th year can appreciate that time gets scarce and that you will sometimes need to spend 48 hours in the library putting your blood sweat and tears into an essay. I’ve been there, I too have shed those tears, but I did the considerate thing and went home and had a shower as soon as I could, and didn’t show up to class smelling like the filthy sock that set Dobby free. You might have forgotten what you smell like, that’s not your fault (it’s your assignment’s fault) but if you’ve used the same set of clothes for more than 7 hours, please shower and change.

2. Talking in lectures

This one is tricky, and controversial. If you talk a little you get your face recognised by the professor, but if you talk too much you get recognised on Murdoch confessions and will hear a collective sigh of a hundred annoyed people every time you talk. Now there is a lot of finger pointing that mature age students are the worst culprits of talking too much in lectures, but I’ve been around long enough to know that it’s just as bad with over-excited and uninformed first years. I believe that everyone has the right to speak in classes and lectures. If you are worried your contributions might not fit the etiquette of university here is a simple rule to follow. If your comment can be directly useful in an exam to the majority of students, then make the comment, otherwise hold off until you can speak to the lecturer in person. Comments like “Can you please clarify the last point” is great, comments like “this reminds me of when I….” will automatically waste everyone’s time. Keep your questions or comments academic and not anecdotal.

3. Talking to Professors

After every lecture there is always 20 students waiting to see the professor. Some have very quick questions that can be addressed in seconds, and others have long questions that require 10 minutes to explain. Be systematic. If you KNOW your question is a hard one, let others go first, or else put it in an email. Please, don’t rush to the front, be the first to talk to the professor for 15 minutes about your life story.

A key:

“I need to clarify a point on topic X for my assignment” – Line up.

“I need a detailed response for topic X for my assignment”- Email the professor.

“I think the professor will find this interesting”- Stay seated.

 

“Trust me. You don’t ever want to be the person over-heard loudly talking about that cat video you spent all night watching or the new tinder fling you have good banter with.”

 

4. Library Noise restrictions

Trust me. You don’t ever want to be the person over-heard loudly talking about that cat video you spent all night watching or the new tinder fling you have good banter with. Yes, there are floors of the library which are silent zones, and others that are not (IE Level 3 North Wing). But if you’re on level 3, in a booth, and everybody is dead silent, then read the room and also keep silent. Just because you’re allowed to talk loudly in the area it doesn’t mean you should. You’re also allowed to do 10kms under the limit on South Street, but why make yourself so unpopular? Show respect to the people you are sharing the space with (including the roads, it’s a 70km zone damn people come on).

5. Murdoch Confessions

This page is both a pro and con of university life. The bonuses include creating a sense of community. People who seek support or answers to a complaint are better received and answered on Confessions than through any other forum. We also start recognising familiar names (shout out to you Frodo Swaggins) which helps us learn who some of the more active members of the university community are. The downside is that often, things get nasty. Whether it’s a club president, a Guild president, or the one mature age student who annoys you, it’s not okay to publicly bash somebody because you don’t like them. Sure it’s funny when Bell Tower Times does it, but the second you put a face to the story, you’re bullying. Murdoch is a small place, if you take out the village and the horse’s we’re probably smaller than the Greek economy. Don’t characterise our university with online bullying. Keep in mind most academic staff have Facebook and regularly scan the page, and in the past they have commented on post’s too. Keep it clean, Keep it Memes.

6. Booth Bi-laws

Scenario. You go to a restaurant, eat your meal, and leave your things at the table, and ask the waiter to keep the table there, because you want to pop out for 2 hours for desert somewhere else. The waiter is obviously confused as to why you would do this because it’s selfish to keep a table to yourself when people would be waiting and the table’s available are limited. If you want to go out for 2 hours then you should take your things with you and resign to the fact that you don’t own a table just because your thing’s are there especially when power points are so limited.

You understand? It’s a metaphor. The library is the restaurant, the table is the booth, the angry waiter is every student you will piss off by leaving your things at a table for hours while you buzz around campus.

7.  Group Assignments

Group work can be a new experience for everyone, and if it’s your first time doing a group project it’s no wonder challenges arise.  Firstly, attend all group meetings and respond to emails, don’t leave your group hanging. Secondly, if you look at the group project and everybody else’s work looks better than yours, then re-do your work. You are the weakest link. There are students who rely on the good performance of others in group work to achieve good marks. If your work is poor quality your group can kick you off the team, and you will end up submitting the assignment alone and doing twice the work.

8. Just be Cool, yeah?

Don’t judge how people dress, if they come to class in heels or Crocs, whether they dress like Beyoncé or Dobby. Don’t be rude to people who have different opinions to you, don’t make discussions into arguments. Don’t complain and put Murdoch down constantly, suggest solutions. We have a culture unique to our campus, we make friends by sitting with strangers in the library. We feel comfortable wearing whatever we like and we are confident talking in classes without fear of missile launches. If you’re a new student, then contribute positively to this culture. Be nice, be friendly, shower regularly.

PEOPLE OF BUSH COURT

Bush Court is a vibrant hub for outdoor chilling, studying, and enjoying the sun. If you’ve been on Bush Court you’ve either seen these people or you’ve been one of them. We took some time to identify some of the diverse and humorous characters you can find on this sunny stretch of grassland… Enjoy ;).

Screen Shot 2017-05-30 at 9.14.44 PM

That person sleeping on a beanbag who you think is dead.

While hanging out at bush court on a sunny day, you take a glance at a guy who looks to be taking a nap out on the grass. You tell your beanbag squad “Lol look at this guy taking a nap what a lad”. After half an hour of chatting you notice the guy hasn’t moved. “Lol is this guy even alive,” you joke with your beanbag squad. “Geez he’s pretty sunburnt…” You decide to check if he’s alright and see if he’s actually dead. Holy shit, he is dead! Oh no, actually he’s just exhausted from eating too much delicous banana bread from Club Murdoch. Been there.

Screen Shot 2017-05-30 at 9.14.47 PM

That person secretly getting drunk at the Tav before their philosophy lecture.

“Who’s coming to the Tav” your mate texts you. “Don’t we have a BAR200 unit next”. “You mean philosphy? Exactly lol”. Expand your mind to new ideas. Overcome your social anxiety and have fun by making interesting yet unwanted verbal  inputs during lectures. Yes, beer makes philosophy lectures fun and interesting.

Screen Shot 2017-05-30 at 9.14.52 PM

That person who casually offers to share a joint during your study sesh.

During your chill study sesh out on bush court, before a somewhat important online test, someone from your beanbag squad starts to roll a cigarette, lining it with an oregano like substance. “You want a hit man?”. “Nah I’ve got an online  test soon..“

“Bro you can just google it lol”. “Fuck sake this is why i don’t study on bush court” you say as he passes it over.

Screen Shot 2017-05-30 at 9.14.56 PM

That person who competes for the last red beanbag.

You almost gave up on it for an uncomfortable deck chair or one of those stinking hot black beanbag that would surely give you third degree burns. But in the distance.. You see it.. The last red beanbag in all its glory. As you walk towards it you notice someone who seems to be looking for the same thing in the distance. As they pick up the pace, you show no shame for running and jumping on that shining red treasure, for you know the dread of the other Murdoch sitting equipment.

Screen Shot 2017-05-30 at 9.15.01 PM

The person in your squad who prepared the red beanbags.

Shout out to that person in your squad who gathered all the red beanbags for the group hang out and study sesh. Unless of course I’m not in that group and there’s no red beanbags. Then you’re all selfish people…

Murdoch Maps Web App

Find your Way around Campus

Our Campus has evolved over the years and with it we have seen movements of schools, rooms and facilities to meet the needs of our staff and students.  As our facilities grow, we want to ensure everyone is able to get around easily and vitally, not get lost!

To help with Campus navigation, we are pleased to announce the introduction of the Murdoch Maps web app. This application is available via mobile (iOS or Android) or desktop device with an internet connection and will provide you with Campus navigational support.

 This first version of the Murdoch Maps web app includes the Perth Campus map with the following functionality:

·         Where am I? – the map identifies your current location

·         I need to find… – search for a room (names or numbers), lecture theatre or points of interest (such as UniBank, the Tavern, etc.) around Campus

·         Get me there! –  mapping to provide you with a visual pathway and text directions showing you the best way to get to your destination

·         Feedback – let us know what we can include or change in future versions of the app!

We have already planned some enhancements to this app and will soon be introducing disability routes, internal routes (within a building directly to your room) and the Murdoch and Rockingham campus maps!

This new app will be available shortly via either the Campus Map page on the Murdoch University website, or via the QR Code link you will see on promotional posters around Perth Campus.

The Quenda Files: A Quiet Week

After we were bragging last week about how much better podcasters we had become, somehow we activated Siri mid discussion and stuffed up the file export to lose the last 5 minutes of the podcast, which is probably for the best because we were padding for time after a super uneventful week of politics.

The Quenda Files: Fireworks and Racism

iTunes and other subscription services coming when we design a logo.

Troy and Roland ramble on about yesterday’s news including the Fremantle firework ban, systemic racism, staff strikes and fossil fuel divestment. Practice makes perfect as most of last week’s technical blips are ironed out and the volume tends to be more even too! We even wrote a few notes down to plan what were going to say but quickly lost them.

Welcome to our first attempt at a weekly podcast discussing the last week of news and politics. Troy and I sat down to ramble on but both of us had been watching too much Olympics to provide any well thought out opinions. Next week will be better researched we promise. Also apologies over the sound quality, expect a few glitches, we’re very new to this.

Leave feedback and suggestions, positive and negative, in the comments. Anyone who wants to design a Quenda Files logo is welcome to do so.
