Premiere: Jon Doe delivers on his best release to date, Everything Looks So Big From Down Here
The Gratis Minds front-man breaks solo, and drops one of the most promising Australian hip-hop songs of the year.
Whether it's as a part of his three-piece hip-hop group Gratis Minds or under his solo alias, New South Wales-based rapper Jon Doe is one of the more promising young-guns to emerge from Australian hip-hop of late, with his new single Everything Looks So Big From Down Here further settling this. It arrives off the back of PYRAMID$, released earlier this month, with the Australian MC continuing the chilled-out vibe of the previous single with a bass-dominated production, which sits restrained in the background along with some airy synth and some playful samples. Doe's vocals glide with ease over the top of the beat, with the thought-provoking lyricism from his past singles finding a home in Everything Looks So Big From Down Here too. “It’s about accepting our struggles and lessons as a necessary part of our development.” says Doe on the track's meaning. “I guess it’s also about me finding solace and calm in the tempest that is life.”
