RAVIN – SOULFOOD EP

March 6, 2015

Heaps Decent is proud to announce the release of ‘Soulfood’, the debut EP from rising talent, Bankstown-based artist Ravin (pronounced ‘Rah-vin’). ‘Life Don’t Shine’ features an accompanying video from Sydney-based visual artist Ego and showcases Ravin’s powerful lyrics and technical prowess married with a perfect balance of psychedelic surroundings to complete the experience that is ‘Soulfood’. It’s hard to go past the strength of Adam Bozzetto’s production across this whole release; his illustrious talents are more than evident throughout this collaboration.

With its laidback flow and Dilla-esque productions, the EP draws comparisons to 90’s rap heavyweights such as Tupac, Nas, Ghostface Killah and A Tribe Called Quest. Each track sets about its own intricate story that touches on both Ravin’s south-west Sydney upbringing and Australian/Samoan heritage. Tapping into the astuteness of this young artist, a lyrical depth is manifested in every phrase.

The result of many long sessions at our Home Base workshops, ‘Soulfood’ is a stellar debut that shows incredible talent and wisdom beyond his 18 years, and we see huge things on the horizon for this young artist.
