Having built a reputation for some of the wildest live shows in Melbourne’s music scene over the past 3 years, we’ve seen 3K drop their debut EP Don’t Panic, a collaborative project alongside Agung Mango in 2019 titled OPENFORBUSINESS, and a string of hype singles including the Hamley-produced ‘Bring a Friend’ and most recently ‘Swipe’. In the few short years since 3K burst onto the scene, they have been able to watch their supporters grow cult-like.
The Melbourne rap crew give highlight some of the best upcoming talent in their city.
01. Agung Mango
In terms of music, we feel like Mango is always coming up with new inspiring ideas. In our music journey he is like a ‘childhood best friend’ in this. The way he has captured the Melbourne Jazz scene and crossed over with his rap ability and general music prowess is leaps and bounds ahead of others in our opinion. We have been working on some exciting new stuff with Mango and we are super keen to share with you.
02. Boy Ace
We feel like his ability to effortlessly glide between Trap and R&B is reminiscent of a golden age in music. Ace captures the vibe of a new generation coming up in Melbourne. He is super catchy with his hooks and has a lot of melody in his raps. We are super excited for you guys to see what he has in store.
We remember seeing Pania perform for the first time 2-3 years ago and we were instantly mesmerised by her cadence and voice. She did a cover of The Weeknd – Wicked games and the way she seamlessly captivated the crowd with her voice was amazing to see. Her experimental style and the sounds she works with are super dope. We’re super keen to work with her at the upcoming Adidas newsroom.
04. Manny Mula
We love Manny because he is a very charismatic person, and this translates heavily in his music. Manny is versatile in his Rap approach and always brings something lively in our sessions with him. His stage presence is unmatched in Melbourne. We draw a lot of parallels between his approach and ours.
With a dreamy R&B and Soul influenced sound. CD is one of our close friends and musical collaborators. Her voice is angelic and the pride she takes in her art is contagious. It’s been amazing watching her development and the way she navigates through her vocal range. Keep your eyes peeled for new CD!
