Bio

Raised in the capital, landed in Melbourne. Context creates a hip hop sound reminiscent to mid 90s New York. With cheeky lines, pocket flows and a heavy UK influence – a unique sound emerges. With a high-energy show backed by classic beats, Context has honed his skills and is ready to bring his unique style to his new city.

A solo EP titled “Monkey Bars” formed the starting point for collaborations with Jimmy Flipshyt. Context and Jimmy went on to release two EPs creating an early 90s boom bap sound with a CBR/FNQ twist. Slow breaks, heavy bass and effortless flow, saw the duo receive JJJ airplay and support various touring artists (R.A. The Rugged Man, High Focus Records, P.Smurf, Dialectrix etc). Context now lives in Melbourne and represents both Lab Co. and Capslock Collective.

After almost two years in hibernation, Context has landed back on earth to show us what he has been working on. Under the guise of Joe Syzlak, Context has been in the lab cooking up endless beats and mastering his production skills. It is these beats that have formed the backbone of Context’s upcoming solo EP – Rogue Astronaut which is OUT NOW on Bandcamp.

Stay tuned.
