Allday is leading a new era in Hip Hop for Australia.
Having dropped out of art school to focus full time on music, he successfully lived off stolen sachets of microwave rice for months on end. Oh, and managed to drop multiple mixtapes, slide into triple j’s world famous Hottest 100 Poll with ‘So Good’, debut an EP at #1 on the AIR chart (and #18 in the ARIA Charts), and play a whole bunch of sold out shows and festivals around Australia.
Which brings us to 2015, where the first two singles from Allday’s debut album, ‘Right Now’ and ‘You Always Know the DJ”, found a place on the airwaves and into the hearts of many. Sold out national tours, supports for Lily Allen, and huge festival spots have ensued.
Allday’s debut album “Startup Cult” is a blend of broad influences and personal stories. Thousands joined the cult and helped Allday debut at #3 on the ARIA Album Charts, and #1 on iTunes Hip Hop Charts. Two massive national tours sold out within days, months ahead of the shows themselves.
The album was nominated at the AIR Awards as one of the best hip hop releases of the year, two tracks made the 2014 triple Hottest 100 poll, and Allday won the hip hop category at the Fowler’s Live Awards. Having just played to huge crowds across the festival season, signed an Australian-first record deal with US label Windup, lit up international blogs with incredible July 2015 mixtape “Soft Grunge Love Rap”, and hit the Top 25 in the CMJ Hip Hop charts, Allday’s cult is spreading far…
