Eastern Seaboard Electric Soul Ensemble, or ESESE for short are Melbourne based Soul/Funk/Hip Hop group. Under the lead of vocalist and producer Hudson James Jr and fronted by rapper Hancoq, ESESE perform with a varying number of up to 11 members.
Eastern Seaboard Electric Soul Experience (ESESE) is a collective of rappers, singers, producers and visual artists who have produced for Baro but are also starting to churn out their own tracks. Their debutAINTNO featuring Hancoq had the same kind of vivacious bounce as something like Outkast’s Skew It On The Bar-B while their latest Wonderland with Hancoq, Hudson James Jr and Lostbeat delivering more of a lazy Sunday beat peppered with jazz influences. Their live show features a seven piece band which is something new for Australian hip-hop and just by listening to their brassy, dense-sounding tracks you can tell they really require that wall of sound on stage. Australian hip-hop has always had such a strong communal feel and it’s good to see that’s still alive even if this ain’t your traditional Oz hip-hop.
