Pagen Elypsis is a collective of mc's from Adelaide, and we've picked them to play at the Adelaide Big Day Out!
Interview: 22 November 2010
Tell us about your music – how did you develop your sound?
Our sound was developed directly from our lives and influences. Each of the rappers in the group has a different sound but you can always tell its part of the same product. We developed the sound we have today by being immersed and active in the underground hip-hop scene and leading normal day to day lives at the same time, when you throw that much partying and angst into a blender you get Pagen Elypsis.
What can the Big day Out audience expect at your show?
They can expect a strong impression of who the group is. We are no stranger to the live circuit, with most members performing live for over 5 years both locally and interstate so they can expect a big impression to be made. We have worked at this for a long time and now when we perform it's a celebration of how far it's all come.
Who are you looking most forward to seeing at the Big Day Out?
I think we're looking forward to seeing Lupe Fiasco, Bliss N Eso and Lowrider.
What’s coming up in the future?
For the next 6 months the group is going to be playing alot of shows around the country and then we will be taking a short break to work on separate projects. This will mean Purpose & Prime are both doing a solo mixtape, Prime will be releasing a solo album, Aforementioned (Motive & Purpose) will be releasing a mixtape followed by their first official album as a group entitled "11th Hour" and Pohetikut and Kadowg will be working on an album together as the Skeptiks.
Australian music is?
Something to be proud of.
