Introducing the latest face of original hip hop in the UK - 20 year old London based rapper Rax. This creative up and coming wordsmith is on the verge of establishing himself as one of Britain's most prominent musical stars, with a 6-month plan titled The Black Crook Project kicking into action at Midnight on Sunday, 2nd October. Based around Charles M. Barras' 1866 musical 'The Black Crook', the project will see Rax release 1 new video every 2 weeks for 6 months.
Mantra's second single from sophomore release Speaking Volumes is 'Voodoo Music'. In contrast to the lyrical introspection prominent in revered first single 'Got Me Wrong (featuring Parvyn Kaur Singh)' (Triple J's most requested song in the week following its release), 'Voodoo Music' is essentially a celebration of Mantra's aptitude for wordplay and metaphor.
