In the world of Australian hip hop, it seemed impossible to create an original sound. Not for Silvabeats, the one man Aussie hip hop marvel, springing out of far and distant north Queensland. Without any previous experience, Daimon Martin wrote, produced and performed all the songs, teaching himself as he went along. It must have been a good way to learn because the result is a raw party album with a totally unique Australian sound.

With influences like Pharrel, Mark Ronson and, the debut album, Aussie Kiss, has a serious sound but, refreshingly, doesn't take itself too seriously. The album's filled with fun tracks that flawlessly combine fresh electro beats with sharp, witty lyrics that will have you shaking your booty one second and laughing out loud the next.

The songs capture the Australian club scene perfectly, with cheeky lyrics that every Aussie can relate to, but you can still find enough tracks to chill the mood out when you need to. Stand out songs include Hardly a 10, Lah Dah and Feelin' Good.
Who knows," says Daimon, "Maybe they'll even help someone pick up."

Once you listen and find yourself wanting more, there's good news: Daimon is currently working on the next Silvabeats album that he describes as "bigger and better". So keep an ear open!
