“I started putting together this 8-track album in July of 2020 during the lockdowns. The inspiration came from different moods I was feeling with witnessing what was happening in Australia and around the world. Each track and their titles represents a certain moment or feeling at that time.”P.R.
Sydney-based music producer P.R. crafted his art around being diverse. Inspired by boom-bap and the golden era of hip-hop, he takes that artistic goal further with Behind Borders. Packed with unique features, the release ebbs and flows through emotions and genres.
The album is a sonic reflection of his lockdown experience in Australia featuring tons of great collaborators. Blending a great variety of instrumentation and samples, the journey of Behind Borders reveals its sheer musical depth and colorful stylistic palette. Keeping the steady basis of clean and punchy hip-hop sounds, the tracks come as waves one after the other with a slightly different yet cohesive feel. Instrumental phrases will first get you zoned into the groove, but a quick swing into a more vocal-driven direction will pleasantly surprise you.
On the single “Time Away”, P.R. embarks on a new adventure with Singapore-based artist ChillCat a.k.a. Wengie. Hazy beat grooves and smooth vocal chops are paired with light trap elements to touch you with a soothing warm sunset vibe.
Sydney's own music architect, Pedram Rouz, aka "4-D," thrives on diversity. A master of breaking boundaries, he fuses hip hop with r&b, jazz and lofi elements. Embracing a multidimensional approach, 4-D showcases that true artistry thrives beyond a single dimension.
