Rapaport @ Oxford Art Factory

When:
Sat 28 Jul 2018
Cost:
$18.25
Details:
Following a 16 date national tour with Butterfingers and a Sydney support slot with Horrorshow, Rapaport will hit the road again embarking on his own national headline tour to launch his second solo album, ‘Village Idiot’. The ‘Village Idiot’ national tour kicks off in June and will stop via Perth, Brisbane, Melbourne, Canberra, Sydney, Jindabyne and Adelaide.

“…the musicianship, dynamics, rhythms and sheer multi-tasking ability of the Rapaport duo was staggering…an intimate and fascinating set for music lovers and musicians alike. Rapaport and his astounding drummer Finn were unparalleled in their tightness.” - The Haze Mag, April 2018

Three years in the making, ‘Village idiot’ boasts a unique track listing that features some of the country’s best hip hop artists; Joelistics (TZU), Ribongia, Kid Fiction, Mantra & Billie McCarthy. The album merges the intensity and speed of hip hop with country, soul, and African groove resonating into the Rapaport’s live show through his spit fire raps and live instrumental beats.

Rapaport Explains "I put so much of myself into these tunes and I can't wait to share them with audiences around the country. The response I've had to the album has so far been really amazing and I'm excited to bring the songs alive with the live guitar."

Released in March through Sydney hip hop label Big Village, a label Rapaport co-founded and still runs, ‘Village Idiot’ has clocked up thousands of streams on Spotify and radio airplay around the country via Triple J and the National Community Radio Network.

After years of performing with the best MC’s in Australian hip hop such as Thundamentals, Mathas, Omar Musa, P. Smurf, Butterfingers and Horrorshow, it’s all eyes on Rapaport as he launches ‘Village Idiot’. Tickets via the website.
