For the first time ever, 360, PEZ and Seth Sentry are officially united, on the menacing, classic rap of ‘Coup De Grace’, the latest taste from 360’s upcoming fourth studio album, Vintage Modern (rel. October 27). Today, the three Australian rap mavericks present the official video for Coup De Grace.
“This is us in beast mode” 360 says of the undeniable classic raps from the three revered mates over exceptionally ominous Styalz Fuego and Nic Martin production.
360 also announces the general public on-sale for his massive Vintage Modern National Tour – an all-ages outing across Australia, his first in over three years. Taking in Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth and Melbourne, the Vintage Modern National Tour will be the first chance for the wider public to catch 360 after a string of sold out intimate shows earlier in 2017.
Vintage Modern finds 360 in peak form, an artist re-invigorated. Writing the bulk of the album as acoustic pieces first, then teaming up with a tight-knit production crew – longtime collaborator Styalz Fuego, executive producer Nic Martin and chief instrumentalist Carl Dimataga – the album pairs 60’s trademark charm, honesty and razor sharp raps with a lush sonic backbone of guitars and live instrumentation fused with contemporary rap sounds, replacing the heavy synths and electronic drops his music is traditionally known for.
Whilst creating Vintage Modern, 360 launched VI – a wildly successful direct-to-fan campaign, gradually dropping six brand new streaming tracks with accompanying videos directly to his 10,000 member strong Facebook fan group ˜The Close Circle” and returned to the stage for the first time in three years with sold out shows in Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney. Across all platforms, the campaign reached over 8 million people on social media, with an astonishing 25,000 social shares, and in turn reinforced his stature as a key figure in Australian hip hop.
