Gill Bates comes from that Allday strain of US-influenced hip-hop. The Sudan-born Brisbane-based rapper teeters between R&B and Drake-style raps, giving us something that could easily crossover outside of Australia. He featured Allday on his debut track She Knows which was a late night jam not dissimilar to the kind of stuff Jeremih was creating with Shlohmo. The best thing about Gill Bates is he’s combining the Australian electronic and hip-hop scene. His second track Didn’t Mind features production from Aussie beat-whiz Feki which, for all its US influences, sounds distinctly Australian because of the soundscape that runs beneath it.
