Boysnoize Records Tour - Spank Rock (US), Jensen Interceptor & Stephane 1993
In a mighty three-ponged attack the pioneering German record label Boysnoize Records is firing up around Australia this coming October to host the exclusive return of Spank Rock, alongside nu-breed and local label homies Jensen Interceptor and Stephane 1993.
Last seen on tour in the country with Mark Ronson playing a huge run of festival shows back in 2012/13, Spank Rock is the Baltimore-born rapper/producer celebrating his newest EP The Upside (2015), released via Bad Blood and Boysnoize Records. The lead single ‘Gully’ was premiered on Dazed & Confused, received extensive play on BBC Radio 1, and includes remixes from Brodinski and Switch. Described as a progenitor of the dance/rap hybrid, Spank Rock is renowned for his electrifying, heavy sweat inducing performances and we can expect maximum heat from his new-look DJ/Rap mash-up set.
In 2006 Spank Rock’s cult classic debut album YoYoYoYoYo gave us club banger ‘Bump’, and was named as one of Tom Yorke’s (Radiohead) top 10 albums of that year. Everything Is Fucking Boring And Everyone Is A Fucking Liar(2011) was the highly anticipated follow up LP produced by Boys Noize, and includes appearances from Santigold, Big Freedia and XXXchange. Spank Rock has since played with the likes of Mark Ronson, Beastie Boys, Bjork, Ghostface Killah and the list goes on, firmly crowning his reputation as one of the worlds most dynamic MC’s.
It wouldn’t be an Australian BNR tour without highlighting the local talent also signed to the label. With a couple of Boysnoize Records EP releases already to his name (‘Crack’ and ‘Symptions’), INTL.C tastemaker Jensen Interceptorwill be joining the team, fresh from touring alongside Brodinski and The Hacker. Hailing from Newcastle Stephane 1993 will also play selection of shows off the back of his ‘Holovision’ EP for BNR and supporting Golden Features. Full rave-steam ahead.
The tour will headline clubs across Brisbane, Sydney and Perth, culminating with a very special BNR Halloween Raveat the Northcote Social Club in Melbourne on Saturday 31st October. Spank Rock and Jensen Interceptor will also pop over to Singapore for one night only at the end of the run.
