After years of gigging, writing and producing over 3 countries and even more genres, he finally brings together a collection of music which very accurately describes the man behind the name. From being a young menace and getting grounded, to a grown man's perception of modern government and society, the album is both maturely thought out and written, yet performed with a childlike, care-free attitude. A great first step to take, and one that will surely leave a massive footprint.
Christopher Stevens, Better known by his stage moniker "Megamegaman" is somewhat of a veteran in his own right. A welsh native now residing in Glasgow, his career in music thus far has been nothing short of extensive. Before adopting the alias of Megamegaman, he was a main contributor to Welsh group Convioi Exceptionnel. During his career with Convoi, he toured Wales, received Radio support from the likes of BBC Introducing Wales, and Introducing Scotland. Besides radio play they also held strong support slots for Cery Matthews of Catatonia and Nik Turner of Hawkwind among many others. Their "hip/folktronica" journey eventually led them to perform on Welsh TV show Bandit, showcasing them to the country that built their solid foundation. Convoi eventually went there seperate ways which lead Chris back into his hip hop and electronic roots, this is where he adopted Megamegaman. By infusing Hip Hop, Electro and 8Bit, in an energetic, playful, yet forceful and piercing sound he earned himself a MTV Brand New nomination, a SNMA nomination for best electronica (for his debut ep Style To Burn), a support slot for the mighty Jaguar Skills aswell as sets at Nostock and Gotwood Festival. Now Chris focuses more on the hip hop side of his music after signing to Subfriction Records. He now holds a debut LP under the same heavy belt of accomplishments. After all he has done, this is only just the start.

Timeless is a song/video about immortality and finding your inner essence. Focused on destiny, positivity and family as strong points in his verses, Timeless is a street conscience theme song for life. Mr. Blake's polished and confident style teamed with the hypnotizing keys on this Chef produced beat makes this song a smooth, calming track to listen and reflect to.
New Release: Mr. Grevis - My Escape (out 13.09.2013)

Mr. Grevis, WA’s most affable emcee and most recent inductee into the almighty Sylabollix crew returns with his second album My Escape after the popularity of his debut release The Sampler in 2012. Already receiving triple j airplay for singles ‘So Beautiful’ featuring Joyride and Ness, and ‘The Apology Song’ featuring Drapht, things are looking promising for Mr. Grevis’s sophomore release.
Combining his supreme knack for story-telling with structurally savvy song writing, Grevis has teamed up with fellow SBX cohort Dazastah for the bulk of the album's production, with additional beats from Cam Bluff and Rob Shaker. Tinged with new-age sounds and live instrumentation to match the array of subjects explored, My Escape reflects the times through Mr. Grevis' eyes both sonically and lyrically.
With plenty of guest spots from Grevis' expansive network of industry friends, My Escape features verses from Drapht, Layla, Dazastah, K21, Hons, Sesta, Trials, Apathy, Mortar, Complete, and Optamus, as well as vocal embellishment from Joyride, Ness and Drapht.
An honest and personal track, 'The Apology Song', as its title suggests, is a gesture of redemption to a past sweetheart. Dazastah on production created the stripped back acoustic loop from a riff Grevis had hummed him, which sets a melancholy, exposed stage for the hook and raps. Drapht, a man of many talents, sings on the mournful chorus to spine-tingling effect.
Also produced by Dazastah, 'So Beautiful' is set apart by its disco strings and heavy synth lines. An ode to newfound positivity, Grevis raps on his perception of the world now that he is happy within himself. Featuring Sydney's master crooner Joyride, along with WA based newcomer Ness, the track's infectiously uplifting hook floats over an electronic pulse.
'Living the Dream', another gem by produced Dazastah, sees Grevis light heartedly reflecting on the reality that he may never 'blow up' and make a lot of money from his music, but it is still healthy to pursue one's dreams.
Mr. Grevis's music is ridden with honesty and humour in equal measure. Drawing from his colourful past, the emcee has a lot to offer when it comes to song writing content. From Party track to heartfelt ballad, My Escape truly is one of the most personally generous bodies of work from an Australian hip hop artist to date.
"I'm a reformed 'bad guy', a person trying to right my wrongs. I want to educate the youth about using music as outlet rather than taking more destructive roads. I want people to see me not only as a musician, but as a real person. I try to be as open as I can, it's pretty evident in my public interactions; I am publicly as I am personally, i am who i am and I'm not ashamed to state my opinions" – Mr. Grevis
