Drifting Status is the debut release from Melbourne’s Kodiak Kid. It signifies not only the next
chapter in his musical evolution from DJ to producer, but with it introducing new Melbourne label
Chilla Holla, as a first offering from this exciting label.
The 5 track EP presents itself as a true homage to the creative influences and artists from which its
foundations were born. It embraces the fundamental elements of hip hop with classic production style
and sampling techniques reminiscent of DJ Krush, DJ Shadow, RJD2, Hermitude and Plutonic Lab in
eras gone by. Guided by the paths laid down by older styles of hip hop, Kodiak Kid seeks to show off
the rewards that come from countless hours spent digging, sampling and re-sampling from the
endless crates of an authentic hip hop fan.
Featuring a guest vocal performance from Melbourne MC Mantra and co-produced, mixed and
mastered by Monkey Marc in his solar-powered Melbourne studio, Drifting Status carves itself a
place amongst its peers, firmly in the crates of Australian hip hop.
