The first interstate signing for Big Village, Mathas represents all the best West Australia has to offer in hip-hop. A multi-talented artist, Mathas brings refinement of songwriting, production and MCing to the table.
Mathas has already garnered significant critical acclaim, taking the 2013 West Australian Music award for Song of the Year in both the hip-hop and electronic categories. Triple J took due note and listed him in their Next Crop Artists.
“One of the best MCs out of Perth. Awards are thrown at him from everywhere and he just keeps pumping out though provoking, informative, relevant and above all infectious rap tunes.” – Lewis McKirdy, Triple J
“Mathas has built an impressive portfolio of socially conscious rap, tackling issues all too often ignored in Australian hip hop.” – Speaker TV
Five years in the making, Mathas’s second album Armwrestling Atlas will be co-released by Big Village and Perth-based artist collective The Community in October 2015.
You can buy and stream Mathas’s back-catalogue at Bandcamp.
