Introducing Pataphysics, and his supremely laid back new hip hop jam, Today

He launches his new album this Friday at The Curtin as part of Melbourne Music Week.

Pataphysics is a Melbourne-based hip hopper who is a bit of a jack of all trades, and he's celebrating the release of a new album called Tip Of The Spear this weekend as part of Melbourne Music Week. To get warmed up for said release, he just dropped a rad new video clip for latest single Today, and to get you warmed up we hit him up with a few questions to find out more in advance. Check it all out below:

Tell us about about yourself?

I play trumpet, make beats, write raps. Sometimes work on dismantling authoritarian systems of control.

What kinda tunes we talkin’?

Definitely hip hop, with a live instrumental element, lots of sub bass and a subtle jazz influence. Music that makes you want to jump around and kidnap a senator.

Production/writing process:

Sometimes it might start with a beat or a melody I have in my head. Sometimes it starts with a lyric or feeling. I play most the instruments on the album, when I record I like the blend between electronic and live sounds like drums, rhodes, telecaster, moog, MPC etc..

Can you tell us about your new single, Today?

Wrote this tune on the piano, the main melody and song stemmed from there. For me it’s essentially a mantra of positive thought coding if you're going through a hard time.

Any shows coming up?

Launching the Album Saturday 18 November at The Curtin presented by Melbourne Music Week. The set includes raps, trumpet, beats, guitar, drums, and lush harmonious back up vocals. Also performing is Audego, Sov Trax and Clandestino. Plus projections and visual artists.

What’s the rest of the year have in store?

Releasing the album is def the highlight, spent a long time developing and crafting this one. In the process of brainstorming another film clip. Excited to work on and record some new songs I have been writing. Also working on my instrumental project Wolves In The Cellar as well as recording and producing for a few artists.

Where can we hear more of your music?

My tunes are on Bandcamp and Spotify, easily found from pataphysics.com.
