When rapper Teether & producer Kuya Neil began to collaborate in late 2020, two powerful forces in the Naarm/Melbourne underground came together to create something rare and special. This week, the pair announce their signing to legendary Chapter Music and share arresting new track, ‘Theory‘ out today.

In a statement on their new signing, Chapter Music’s Ben O’Connor and Guy Blackman share, “At Chapter Music, we’re over the moon to announce that we’ve signed the exceptionally exciting Naarm/Melbourne duo Teether & Kuya Neil. Their magnificent EP God of Surprises, released earlier this year via great local label X Amount Records, has been on repeat at Chapter HQ ever since it came out.” 

At 25, Teether already has a deep dive catalogue of solo releases to his name, largely released via the X Amount collective of which he is a founding member. There are also collaborative projects like Too Birds and even atmospheric metal bands stretching back to the early 2010s.

Kuya Neil is just as prolific. His CV ranges from membership of NZ “family rap ensemble” Fanau Spa, to collaboration with local heroes Papaphilia and Various Asses, to his work with Melbourne Sound School.

Together, Teether & Kuya Neil make future-focused rap informed by modern club styles like footwork, gqom and bass music. Teether’s nonchalant but vivid words infuse Neil’s disorientating, hyper-modern production.

‘Theory’ by Teether & Kuya Neil is out now on Chapter Music, with more announcements expected to follow soon.
