Craterface, the Mulubinba / Newcastle via Eora / Sydney alt-rap duo, round out the inaugural season of their online mix series, The Divine Chatroom, tonight with the premiere of their and final episode airing tonight, Thursday 16 Sep at 6 PM AEST via SoundCloud. STREAM HERE.
Designed as a virtual space for their community to congregate and connect, The Divine Chatroom is a means to uncover new crevices to the Craterface underworld. With Episode 1, Behind You, Jair, LOVEDAVID, Babyjack, Yoni Yen and Aquinas appeared via gifted, unreleased tracks from their respective back catalogues. Episode 2 saw this community extend to electronic outfits 700 Feel, Too Birds and Milk Crate, and now with the upcoming Episode 3, includes Grasps, Henri O.R. Asar, Paintball Entrance (FRITZ), Saint Loosifer and returning guest Jair alongside a guest mix by powerhouse club producer Ninajirachi. Together with more music lifted from the Craterface vault, series is a bombastic collage of hip hop, electronica and peek into their inner psyche through spoken word.
Reflecting on the Chatroom so far, rapper baby bruh and producer/vocalist Taki share, “Since we conceived this idea late last year, the potential for the grander concept has just grown and grown. Not only have we been able to link up with some of our favourite artists, but we have been able to invite them into this fucked up little world of ours which makes it even more special. Episode one served as a cluster of madness while episode two was more streamlined and intentional. The final ep of this season is a massive blowout celebration, victory lap type beat which we are very excited about. We really want to thank everyone involved in all episodes of this experiment, especially considering it was such an ambitious idea. Love to all of them, we can’t wait to be out of lockdown and working with them irl.”
The Divine Chatroom follows the alt-rap duo’s appearance on FBi Radio’s Midday Mix, a collaborative single with Behind You in ‘More Is More‘ and a sold-out joint tour with cult band Shady Nasty. Revisit past episodes of the Chatroom HERE, and see all premiere details for Episode 3 BELOW.
