Elefant Traks, New World Artists & triple j present: ASTRONOMY CLASS Where You At? Tour - Support by Thundamentals, Sir Robbo, Hosted by The Tongue

Marking the International Year Of Astronomy with style: hip hop group Astronomy Class release their second album, Pursuit Of Happiness, on May 2 through Elefant Traks

The album sees producers Sir Robbo and Chasm build on their signature
reggae-blessed hip-hop, brought to life so magically on their 2006 debut, Exit
Strategy, while dipping deeper into the sweet soul of Motown's yesteryear

Ozi Batla makes a welcome return to the mic, brimming with confidence
following The Herd's AIR and J Award winning, ARIA top ten album, Summerland. He delivers his own lyrical stamp on the trials and tribulations of modern life, crafting a sharp-witted and layered listen

John Maddox (bass) and The Tongue extend their impressive live skills to the
new record while Vida-Sunshyne; Diafrix; Kween G (KillaQueenz); and blues & roots charmer Ash Grunwald lend their vocals generously. Mike Burnham (The Heliocentrics) returns to the boards, colouring the sound with his analogue recording and mixing techniques

Astronomy Class will be hitting the road in support of their new record with a National Tour presented by Elefant Traks, New World Artists & triple j

Yeah chatting to Robbo yesterday on radio it sounded like these gigs were something else. Great that they are getting that kind of response and that everyone is getting to share a high. Looking forward to Thundamentals too!

Went last night and it was very solid performance by Astronomy Class and also Gina Mitchell's (Basslines) special guest appearance oozed confidence and professionalism and sounded fucken great! Some of The Toungues freestyles were quite weak and lambasted (but this was not his intenetion!) by Ozi Battla's real skill. The beats sounded tuff and some of those famailar samples have been deconstructed in a way that truly does take them into another aural realm. This is hiigh quality Aussie hip-hop, and it's something to be proud off.
Madda dan...

Well got to pretty much all of the night including Sir Robbo's dj set. Plenty of nice tunes that built the night up well. Thundamental's got the energy levels up and Astronomy Class did a solid set blending material off both their albums. They sounded great. The place was rammed full for their set, and people were into it. I agree with Static about Gina - I've always liked her voice, but that was the best I've ever heard her. She seemed to have real performing confidence, with the projection to match - no holding back. Kween G was also great. I'm assuming Melbourne peeps will get Vida.

When I was waiting for a bus back into town about 4 or 5 people that walked past recognising me from the gig said 'great gig', 'great band' or words to that effect. That doesn't happen all that often. I had high expectations for this show, but I wasn't disappointed.
