has made vital contributions to the Sydney live music scene, as part of Daily Meds, Reverse Polarities and Sketch the Rhyme, for over ten years. Co-founder of Big Village Records, P.Smurf
is a seasoned MC whose socially and politically charged lyrics, delivered with charisma, sharp wit and strong rhythmic style, have earned him a loyal fanbase.
New single ‘Abalone’ combines P.Smurf’s deft punchlines and intricate lyricism with Melbourne producer Must Volkoff’s boom bap drums and dusty samples. Fusing smooth, unyielding flows with a dark, brooding melody, ‘Abalone’ sets the mood for P.Smurf’s debut solo album, dropping later in 2017 Playing the Blues.
The 7" vinyl also contains an exclusive unreleased B-Side featuring Melbourne artists P Link, Adam Koots & Downpat. Get a free download of both tracks and there instrumentals with your copy
