Australian hip hop scene be lit. Illusive and Frontier Touring are elated to kick off a brand new concert concept with two of the all-time greats of hip hop production of all time, DJ Premier and Peter Rock, Collusion, a new event series which revolves around collaborative artist performances, will see its first instalment in May. Premo and Pete will be performing massive co-op DJ sets across the country in what will be an extremely rare experience.
DJ Premier, arguably the greatest hip-hop producer in history, carries an unbelievably impressive CV. Emerging with the late Guru as half of the boundarycrossing duo GangStarr, he established himself as the face of the famed New York sound during rap’s ‘90s golden era. He produced some most iconic songs on some of the most acclaimed hip-hop albums of all time including Nas’ ‘NY State of Mind’, ‘Memory Lane’ and ‘Represent’, Biggie’s ‘Kick in the Door’, ‘Ten Crack Commandments’ and ‘Unbelievable’, Jay-Z’s ‘D’Evils’, ‘Friend or Foe’ and ‘Bring It On’ to name just a few. Throw in Big L, Mos Def, Snoop Dogg, Kanye West, KRSOne, D’Angelo and Big Daddy Kane and you start to get an idea of his stature .
Pete Rock boasts a similarly impressive resume. As one half of pioneering New Yorker duo Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth in the early ‘90s, and later become a big and valued hip-hop producer behind classic like Rakim, Nas, M.O.P., Run DMC, Raekwon, Big L, Heavy D & The Boyz, Ghostface Killah, Das EFX and Boot Camp Clik, he’s been listed as a major inspiration by everyone from Kanye West to the late J Dilla.
The duo will be bringing their massive co-op DJ sets around the country, as producers they are in a league of their own and as DJs are considered some of the best in the game.
They will be kicking off on 1st May in Perth before touring around the country. You can’t miss to see them on stage, it will be legendary.
