THIRD3YE ‘Space Gospel (feat. ISRAEL STARR)’

Written by on August 1, 2016


New Zealand’s favourite collection of soul-infused earth-rappers Third3ye have just released 3P, their first new material as a collective in nearly two years. A body of work exploring their own place and experiences as musicians in NZ in 2016.

Since the release of their debut album On3ness in 2014, Third3ye have developed a reputation and large following as one of the most interesting artists in the music scene with their conscious bend on hip-hop/soul. Written over the course of nearly two years at “the Buddha shack where Third3ye was born”, the background for the 3P was laid in experiences – some death defying and life changing, others self-discovering.

The 3P represents two artists in Angelo King and MeloDownz coming together after rediscovering themselves not only as solo artists, but also as individuals – a reconnection of souls kindred in spirit. The varied sound of the 3P integrates the number of musical elements which have spoken to Third3ye throughout the musical journey. After the success and strong reception behind On3ness, the 3P is an effort to not only do something different musically, but also to not rest on their laurels.

Grow Room affiliates WhyFi & JRD are responsible for the moody production on the track ‘Space Gospel’, which also features premier reggae vocalist Israel Starr adding an interesting contrast to the final section of the tune.

Third3ye ‘3P’ is availble on CD and digitally worldwide via Loop.


Turn It Up is a feature on Base FM where we showcase a new track from Aotearoa every week. Tune in weekdays at 10am and 4pm to hear this weeks top local pick.
