Dialect ‘Rugged Uncut Project’

Press Release

Adelaide’s Young Gun lyricist Dialect releases his debut album “Rugged Uncut Project”.

A highly anticipated debut, “The Rugged Uncut Project” is loaded with some of the finest production, cuts and rhymes from both Australia and overseas. Admin, Inkswel, One Above, Stratus and P.A (Canada) hold down the beats, with cuts supplied by DJ Snair (SA DMC champion) and DJ Nixon.

The album features local friends Social Change and Manek One as well as exclusive guest appearances from Prince Po of the legendary 90’s Hip Hop outfit “Organized Konfusion” and Louisville Sluggah from the classic New York crew the “Boot Camp Click”.

Completely overseen by Dialect, the incredible lyricism and neck snapping beats on this aptly titled “Rugged Uncut Project” deliver an authentic boom bap sound, making this a must have for Hip Hop heads universally. This is not a release to be slept on. Put it in your system and let the album speak for itself.
