Underground emcee OptiMystic has been working hard towards his latest hip hop project, the ‘Day of the Guiding Light’ album. Most definitely no stranger to the music scene, OptiMystic has been manifesting dreams, making connections and spreading his vibe the only way he knows how… with raw love and hardcore positivity! His passion and extreme addiction to the art of rap has lead him on an amazing journey from childhood to the present moment.
OptiMystic released his debut solo album in 2009, ‘ReVamp’, an independent release that featured Grammy award-winning superstar and all-round good fella ‘Speech’ from Arrested Development as well as artists such as Maya Jupiter, N’Fa (1200 Techniques), Big Village’s ‘Reverse Polarities’ and Halfcast.
The huge forthcoming double album ‘Day of The Guiding Light’, has seen OptiMystic go further, to work with even more artists. The album brings on an arsenal of international collaborations including New York’s Afficial Nastee heavyweights ONYX, Keith Murray (Def Squad) Krazy Drayz (Das EFX), Mr Cheeks (The Lost Boyz), Rockness Monsta (Heltah Skeltah), Chip-Fu (Fu-Schnickens), Doitall (Lords of The Underground), Afu-Ra, Jeru the Damaja, Big Shug (Gang Starr Foundation), Prodigal Sunn, Killah Priest (Sunz of Man), Ruste Juxx, Sickflo, Boblakk and more!
The album features production by producers such as Dazastah (Downsyde), Creed Birch, Rob Shaker, Loftee Beats, Wisdom2th and Sipn. Already OptiMystic has released music videos from this upcoming album on his youtube channel and website, including tracks such as ‘Fearless’ and ‘Rock On All Levels’ shot in Brooklyn, Brownsville and Queens starring Afu-Ra, Doitall, Chip-Fu, Rockness Monsta and Mr Cheeks. Plus videos for
‘Exquisite’, ‘Sick Az It Gets’, ‘Monster Stomp’ and ‘Chosen Sacrifice’. And there’s more in the pipeline including ‘Spit That Shit’ shot in Times Square with Keith Murray and ‘Madd Rush’ with Onyx.
With strictly hip hop vibrations pulsating throughout the album, OptiMystic spits, rips and kicks a range of flows with variety and passion. This conscious style rhymer delivers topics of love, death, addictions, the great unknown, and just straight up having fun on the mic. OptiMystic’s love knows no boundaries! So be prepared and stay aware, for if there ever was a time for this MC to be unearthed to the masses… it’s now!

Well I guess Bliss n Eso and Hilltop Hoods are the 2 biggest names Down Under at the moment so I would have to say one of them. They have pushed the Australian scene to a larger audience and helped it to grow, so nothing but respect to them.
““It’s an exciting time,” he says. “I’ve been doing venues everywhere, Mojos Bar, the Swan Hotel, booked parties, all the underground battle. It’s insane.
“It wasn’t like that when I was first starting out. It used to be backyard battles and bogans and heavy metal fans.
“They would get into it which is good, but that was it. Aussie Hip hop has broken into it’s own thing. It’s got its own fan base now and it’s evolved into its own wave.””
Performed at After Dark 2019 alongside Kogz & Rob Shaker, Coerce, Diabetik, Dekstah, Distrakt, Elliot Ness & Zeffer, Mellodian & Optimystic, Phatsoe & Ernah, 5Past, Ricky B & Uncool Sam On The Decks.
