Bio

DEBUT Album 'Right for Admission' dropped August 28th 2016!

Bluntfield plays the art of hip-hop to the full extent, sharpening his tool of knowledge and ideals into his weapon of choice.

Where some emcees in the industry may express themselves lyrically merely to complement a dope production, Bluntfield’s raps are dealt out with a deft flow of rhymes without compromising his message. While the MC harnesses the traits of a theatrical and eccentricity to his performance, he maintains an equal shine in his convictions, colouring his wordplay carefully while addressing a range of potent and politically-charged social issues, making his raps
direct-built for public service announcements.

Born and raised in Perth, Western Australia, this west coast MC draws a heavy current for his lyrical charge from the anti-establishment film heroes of his 1980s childhood and comic legends Bill Hicks and George Carlin. He cites his musical influences from international rap recording artists such as Cypress Hill, KRS-One, Redman and spoken word poet/rapper Sage Francis and through Australian hip hop artists Drapht, Horrorshow, Seth Sentry, Bliss n Eso and Mantra.

In 2012, while on tour in Australia, US rap artist Hopsin had an audience at one of his live shows vote an impromptu freestyle show to which Bluntfield was declared the winner. This recognition led to the rapper joining the US rapper onstage twice more during tours over the following years. Following the initial foray into the local scene, Bluntfield recorded and released his debut EP The Black Sheep in 2014 including the comical single 'First World Pains'.

Furthering his exposure on the live scene, Bluntfield has matured his performance recently, appearing on stages for a run of original hybrid shows: ChronicFest, Mad Fap Entertainment shows, (Mad Planet Showcase I, II, III) and Fringe Festival appearances (Comedians vs Rappers).

2016 marked the year of his debut album 'Right For Admission' featuring the first single The Dark Crystal. The track spoke to the urgent epidemic of Methamphetamine use across WA which has seen an unfortunate rise in usage rates far greater than the national average. The PSA-type track finds vocals from the beautiful Billy Harris on the hook complimenting the production of SBX’s Rob Shaker over an original beat provided by Mat Rafle and MadMutherBeats. The single’s video dropped on social media in January shot and edited by Jacqueline Pelczar, Elaine Smith and DVS. This was met with great reception. It was later nominated for the Western Australian Music Industry’s Song of the Year Award in the urban/hip-hop category.

Second single from the album, Just Say Know, dropped April 20, not coincidentally on 4/20 Day. Here, the MC advocates for the use of marijuana and deconstructs the hypocrisies behind the drug’s prohibition, pointing out in no uncertain terms the medical benefits to be reaped from the plant’s cannabis extract. Bluntfield sharpens his sword to great effect on this track which features the vocal pairing of Billy Harris and Penny Purr with Guthrie on guitar over a beat designed by Dazastah and produced by Rob Shaker.

Following the third single 'Walkers', Bluntfield dropped the debut full-length album 'Right For Admission' in August and as a result supported international artists The Four Owls and The Doppelgangaz and an appearance at SouthBound. 2017 looks to be the biggest year to date with a successful run of MadFappaMania shows and Comedians vs Rappers appearances at FringeWorld over Summer and both an EP and sophmore LP set for release at the end of the year!

When I clicked on this track I was expecting either a song about the elderly or I song about organic portals. Glad it was the latter. :)
