Hail­ing from Mel­bourne, emer­ging rapper/producer Dst­nce chal­lenges the future with ‘Notes From The Under­ground’ EP.

Unearth­ing his deep­est and darkest thoughts, Dstnce’s EP is influ­enced by tele­vi­sion shows ‘A Handmaid’s Tale’ and ‘Black Mir­ror’. The EP fea­tures artists’ such as DJ Pay­per­cuttz, Gore­tex and Aye One. Dstnce’s eer­ie under­ground EP will have listen­ers ques­tion­ing the world as we see it, pro­pos­ing what life would be like if Mel­bourne was under the con­trol of an author­it­ari­an régime in the future.

Dst­nce is com­ing up quickly from the under­ground to make his name in the cur­rent Aus­trali­an music­sphere.

On why he chose to go with this theme, Dst­nce said, “Some of my favour­ite records are concept albums. I grew up listen­ing to joints like Dis­pos­able Arts by Masta Ace & Black Trash by Sticky Fin­gaz of Onyx. I haven’t really heard any Aus­trali­an concept records, so why not,”

Demon­strat­ing his lyr­ic­al mas­tery and fresh pro­duc­tion skills, ‘Notes From The Under­ground’ not only exhib­its his abil­ity to con­struct com­pel­ling music but also his punchy vocal deliv­ery.

Dst­nce aka Tor­in is part of hip hop duo Head­lines, a Mel­bourne based duo con­sist­ing of him­self and Aye One which was first estab­lished in 2015. His latest EP show­cases how cre­ativ­ity runs through his veins as he orches­trates an exper­i­ment­al sound that oozes with ele­ments of Hip Hop.
