Ladies and Gentleman, LLLLLLLLLet’s get ready to Rumble!!!

In the red corner, legendary emcee, producer and multi-instrumentalist Captain Imon Starr drives his latest project Olmecha Supreme to the extremes of musical greatness. Undisputedly the freshest and most fiercely talented live band you have yet to hear, Olmecha Supreme will be hitting Australian shores from their current home in Wellington New Zealand to battle Australia’s newest local heavyweight, Pataphysics, over a series of shows.

Olmecha’s all-star line-up is no joke. This dynamic supergroup features the vocal percussion of Aotearoa's Beatbox Champ; King Homeboy, and the massive percussive energy of Kikanju Baku on drums. Each member of Olmecha Supreme is a heavyweight in his own right, led by NZ MPC Champion, founding member of Wellington group Rhombus, and the son of legendary blues musician Taj Mahal among other things; Imon Starr.

In the yellow corner, armed with his hand picked 5 piece funk posse, and as always his signature weapon, the jazz trumpet, Pataphysics powerful performances deliver an unique first generation Australian perspective on it’s contemporary culture. Con-currently writing a thesis on Indigenous resistance in Australia, the uplifting blend of beats and rhymes in 2 languages (Sri-Lankan / Australian) give off an intriguingly laid-back vibration in complete contrast to the more serious nature of some of the topics considered. With his ever-changing live shows carrying a deep groove element and extensive improvisation, Pataphysics is moving crowds with the unique vibe created & riddim’s served having more depth than audiences have come to expect.

In the build up to the release of his highly anticipated debut album ‘The_OLogy_unKnowN’, singles released so far have painted a picture of musical and intellectual diversity, highlighting some of the finer talents of the community that is building throughout Melbourne’s ungerground current. Working with a group of inspirational artists from around the world on this album including Stic Man (Dead Prez, USA), NFA (1200 Techniques), Raashan Ahmad (USA), Vida-Sunshyne (Mista Savona), Lotek (UK), and Rob Swift (X-ecutioners) among others, Pataphysics is further known for the quality of the company of musicians he keeps, a reputation these friendly battles with Olmecha Supreme are sure to build on.

In the green corner, strapping on their gloves for a round will be different special guests in each city including powerful neo-soul hip hop crew ‘Laneous and the family Yah’, Sydney reggae supergroup ‘Basslines’, and notorious party starters ‘DJ JC’, Capital Dub Styles’ ‘HieronymusIX’, ‘DJ Complex’ and ‘DJ Mike Who’ to name just a few of them.

Let’s get it on!
