Icon­ic hip hop group Def Wish Cast uplift and tran­scend through time with their new uplift­ing single ‘New Day’ fea­tur­ing Thavy Ear. 

With the ever-chan­ging new world, DWC’s new single couldn’t come at a bet­ter time. Sing­er­/song-writer Thavy Ear wrote the song years ago about a jour­ney through tough times, but instead of dwell­ing on it, the single cel­eb­rates those moments.

DWC put their spin on the accapella with their high energy. The eclect­ic single is filled with 80’s Elec­tro influ­ences topped off by the group’s sig­na­ture drum/synth machines of Hip Hop. It was recor­ded strictly with ori­gin­al machines by DJ Sing.

“We are, and have always been about the now and not look­ing back but respect it, that’s what this song is about,”

The song has gone  through trans­form­a­tions over the last few years and to see it released now is per­fect  for times like these. It’s the clas­sic sound made new again and rel­ev­ant,”

Accom­pa­ny­ing the song is visu­als shot by Al Moore, fea­tur­ing kids run­ning around chan­nel­ing Goon­ies meets Stars Wars. On the ‘New Day’ clip he brought in a pas­sion of when he was young and mak­ing forts. Now older, he’s able to build one for real with his pro­fes­sion of film and his exper­i­ence of VFX which is evid­ent in the music video.

Def Wish Cast are the ori­gin­al kids from the explo­sion of 80’s Hip Hop phe­nomen­on. Def Wish, Die‑C and Sereck formed in 1990 in the sub­urbs of West­ern Sydney. Rep­res­ent­ing pure Hip Hop cul­ture and all ele­ments right through dance, art, music and fash­ion they were one of only a hand­ful of artists’ to help pion­eer and cre­ate a hip hop Aus­trali­an iden­tity. You can hear a tra­di­tion­al sound, but always fresh and ever evolving. The group now con­sists of DJ Murda1 and Thomas Rock.

‘New Day’ is the first single release for the upcom­ing album “Graf­fiti Crimes” DWC took the  name on as their own as it rep­res­en­ted their jour­ney as stor­ies with­in Hip Hop.
