Hilltop Hoods - The Calling LP

Author: Beat Broker
Friday, September 5, 2003

Hilltop Hoods have been performing live and writing hip hop music for over ten years. During this time their successful independent releases Back Once Again, A Matter Of Time, and Left Foot, Right Foot have established them as affluent songwriters and have gained them a mass of attention both in Australia and on international shores.

On the stage, Hilltop Hoods consisting of MC's Suffa, Pressure and DJ Debris, bring their music alive with their warm-blooded rhymes and electric stage presence.

Their latest album 'the calling' is released on the 22nd of September through Obese Records, with a national tour in the planning stages at the moment.

Their trademark combination of jazz influenced beats, solid lyrics, tight flows and a localised viewpoint is why so many people are taking about Hilltop Hoods and why they won't be labelled up-and-coming for much longer.

Melbourne launch is confirmed to be held at the Prince of Wales, same night as Cash Money -- 19th September 2003.
