EP Service: SO.Crates 'Static Methods Replay' out 27 January + Northside Records Instore

Published by: Sarah Guppy - This Much Talent | 21-Jan-2018
Underground hip hop and soul duo SO.Crates are quickly becoming one of Melbourne's most revered live outfits with many guest collaborations both on record and stage, a testament to their rising recognition within Melbourne's music scene. With the re-issue of their 2016 EP Static Methods comes a whole new level of collaborations on the additional Replay disc which will feature team-ups with an eclectic mix of fellow luminaries including Billy Davis, 30/70, ESESE, Laneous, Chicken Wishbone, and Amadou Suso of the Senegambian Jazz Band.
Made up of MC Cazeaux O.S.L.O (Man Made Mountain) and producer Skomes, SO.Crates continue to poke and prod at traditional notions of hip hop and soul music to create boundless elasticity with their sound, that equally evokes the senses and the mind. Highly regarded as one of the city's must see acts, a SO.Crates live show is a culmination of the duo's love for hip hop culture and golden era jazz and soul, nodding to outfits such as De La Soul and A Tribe Called Quest through the contemporary lens of Melbourne's ever-evolving local music scene.

Having made their festival debut at the 2016 Strawberry Fields Festival, SO.Crates have built steady momentum in 2017 supporting the likes of Stones Throw Records, Black Milk, Rapper Big Pooh, Brother Ali, 30/70, Average Rap Band, and Mndsgn as well as performing with Cool Out Sun, Allysha Joy, Wolves in the Cellar and DJ Darcy Justice at their killer Melbourne single launch at The Curtin.

The duo is now gearing up to re-launch the Static Methods Replay edition with a free all ages in-store performance at Melbourne's Northside Records on Saturday 17 February 2018.


Saturday 17 February
236 Gertrude Street, Fitzroy, Vic
Pataphysics: 3.30 - 4.00pm
SO.Crates: 4.15pm - 4.45pm
