NZ Hip Hop Icon Savage returns to the ring with an aggressive selection of new material in the form of The Orator EP available digitally Monday 16 April.
Recorded In Hollywood, Los Angeles, at famed producer and rapper DJ Quik’s “The Vault” Studio, The Orator title is a nod to the film of the same name that resonated with Savage as a modern day publicspeaker; one who is eloquent and skilled in story telling like his Samoan ancestors.
To capture and reflect the images of being a Polynesian artist surrounded by a new concrete village, and now with a platform to reach millions of fans via hissuccess in the US, Savage enlisted a ‘who’s who’ of US-based Polynesian Hip Hop artists to give a The Orator a 2012 snapshot of life in different Polynesian neighbourhoods around the world.
Produced by Twice As Nice and featuring Monsta G, Ganxsta Ridd (Boo Yaa Tribe), Baby Downn (Brownzville), Shaxe and Jah Free, The Orator EP is Savage’s first set of all new material since the US release of Tribal Council in 2011, and sets up the release of his brand new full length studio album Miracles & Mayhem, available on June 1st.
In the lead up to the EP, Savage has made two tracks from The Orator available to fans for FREE download on Soundcloud. Get your copies here:
