Bio

Embracing a hometown-built reputation for dynamic on-stage energy, and matching it with equal fire in every release, Melbourne’s Jordan Dennis is on a fast-rising come up, garnering attention from Australian tastemakers at every turn. From Dennis’ debut solo release in 2018’s neo-soul bop “Crumbs” feat. Blasko, harder-hitting follow-up in “Glide Freestyle”, and 2020s Doc Marty and The Link, the whip-smart MC has continued to evolve in his expression with a fierce lyrical aptitude on display, first and foremost. Now with solo success at his doorstep, citing influences among the likes of JID, J. Cole and Mick Jenkins, Dennis’ confidence has surged from freestyles among his closest confidants and a supportive musical family to shaping his solo act and climbing to stardom in a minute. His fervour from strength-to-strength has cemented a tight signature, unafraid to curve between genre and showcase an ability the nation has only tasted.

Catchy like a nat in your ear. Summer Brass hooks lift you for sure. That cadence is super MAC-ish. Like teasin the listener with the quick-fire start then pull back on the bars. "Hokus Pokus" gives you the goofy spooky ooky and makes you wanna act up.

The way you switch up your flow over and over is super impressive and keeps this so interesting! Beat is really sick as well

I can hear this cheeky smirk of confidence all through your delivery. You've split your bars in these alternating rhythms just like JID do so well, which means, as I'm listening I'm holding on to each lyric to keep up.

I can hear this cheeky smirk of confidence all through your delivery. You've split your bars in these alternating rhythms just like JID do so well, which means, as I'm listening I'm holding on to each lyric to keep up. This helps me appreciate all the lyrical nods and name drops of hip hop legends that you've woven in. Also, on God, the smoke and mirrors of JUJO's production with those slithering horns are a time warp, it transports me to that magic show in your video clip. To bounce back in time but to sound fresh is a tough thing to do, but you've nailed this transportation trick.
