Premiere: Gill Bates kicks the year off in style with Diamonds & Gold

Premiere: Gill Bates kicks the year off in style with Diamonds & Gold

One of the country's most exciting young rap kids.

It's no secret we're big fans of Brisbane rapper on the come-up, Gill Bates. It's been a little while since we heard any new music from him, but we're very excited today to premiere a new tune from him. It's so fresh we literally had no idea it even existed until about 20 minutes ago, at which point we jumped at the opportunity to premiere it. Produced by fellow Brisbanite B87, it shows the young MC's continued maturing, dropping the wavy feels of his debut single and Feki's influence on Didn't Mind, it's catchy as shit whilst still maintaining a darker edge. Did we mention it's free? It's good to have you back in 2016 Gill Bates, looking forward to see how far you can fuck with it.

If you're vibing this he joins upcoming island festival Castaway, making its east coast debut on Bribie Island in a couple of weeks, click the poster down the bottom for more info/tickets (Allday ain't on the poster, but he sure as shit is playing).
