Familiarise yourself with MELODOWNZ, the musical project of New Zealand based artist Bronson Price who offers up his own eclectic and sharp brand of hip-hop/rap. Having just released his exceptional eight-track EP Avontales earlier this year, it’s clear that MELODOWNZ’ music is all about narrative as each of the tracks take you on a journey; all centred around his hometown of Avondale.
That brings us nicely to MeloDownz’ sensational COLORS performance, in which he delivers a rendition of “$on of a Queen”. Wonderfully contrasting that smooth and elegant beat with that crisp and direct cadence of his, MeloDownz really doesn’t back down on this one. Effortlessly working his way through the beat which is produced by Baccyard, the West Auckland native shows why he’s one of the most exciting rappers to come out of New Zealand in quite a while.
