Out just in time for the Aotearoa summer, hip-hop artist Tipene has unveiled his new EP, We No Muck Around.
We No Muck Around sees Tipene represent his Aotearoa East Coast hip-hop roots with the EP being sonically reminiscent of the early 2000’s nostalgic sound making a release that is truly purpose built for the summer. The EP sees Tipene join forces on the beatmaking with multi-award winning producer 10A (Tenei Kesha), who has worked alongside the likes of KYLE(U.S) Scribe, Ladi6, King Kapisi, JessB, Kings and more.
Written in the small Coromandel town of Whitianga, the EP was written, recorded, mixed and mastered in less than a month. The EP will be released just over one week after its completion. We No Muck Around is not only the title for the EP, but a prevailing theme throughout the entire process - not mucking around, and getting the job done.
The new EP is out now, just in time for Aotearoa summer. This summer is set to be one of Tipene’s busiest ones yet, with support slots on L.A.B’s upcoming regional tour and other major festival slots to be announced.
