RUSH WEPIHA – Greatness feat. DJ Spell

Written by on November 13, 2018

The debut track from Aotearoa native MC, Bboy and Youth mentor Rush Wepiha is this week’s Local Eye video. Rush is joined by DJ Spell, one of New Zealand’s most respected turntablists and Hip Hop producers.

This track calls upon the co-production of Wawang and Abraham Kunin with Marika Hodgson on Bass for what is a heavy head nodding soundtrack that supports the empowering narrative.

‘Greatness’ captures the essence of Rush’s message collectively presented in his upcoming EP IndiGenius. Heritage, tradition, core values – flow from ancestry to living now. This is an original message in the language of his people for his people, and for all people.

Backed by a groove drenched in a 90’s Hip Hop-esque soundtrack reminiscent of Pete Rock, the track is catchy and powerful. A potential anthem that elevates the intensity of the conversation of Indigenous identity.
