– What began as a humble side-project quickly spawned a cohesive hip hop outfit swiftly moving toward a debut album.
The result, Two Toes Cooking with Caustic, an MC/ Producer duo stamping its name in the Australian hip hop scene with an accomplished sound seething with originality.Comprising of MC Joe New ( Former Down Under Beats Crew MC/ 2004 JJJ Unearthed winners) and producer Caustic Yoda ( Ex BlindHoarse) the pair harbor a collective experience yielding a distinctively unique sound seldom found in domestic hip hop.
Set on the back drop of a slick sonic landscape Cooking with caustic covers a wholesome range of content spanning a vast spectrum of concepts and subject matter.
From the murderously sharp delivery on Gotta get to the nostalgic B ball sentiment of Pro ball, MC Joe New proves himself as a thoughtful and multi-faceted lyricist, his deeper moments showing a personal and introspective endeavor through religion, death and youth violence with the confronting sincerity found on the self depreciative Confession time.
Cooking with caustic is a bold display of honesty and diversity as Caustic Yoda verges from pulsing club anthems of Bomb raps and the thick funk riff’s of Mountaineers through to the dark jazz fusions of Vigilante and the broodingly epic Nature of the beats.Unveiling a musical maturity, Caustic Yoda places a strong emphasis on live instrumentation while lending a unique interpretation on traditional sampling.
A strictly local affair Cooking with caustic places Blue Mountain hip hop pioneers and up-and-comers under the microscope featuring a stellar performance by the Thundamentals on Jack in the box, a gritty appearance by Dialectrix on Nature of the beats and introducing local mountains spitter Host Manifest on the hypnotic Passengers with tasty cuts and turn-tablism supplied by the one and only Dj Morgs (Thundamentals).Two Toes are a sure hit for any Australian hip hop fan equipped with a dynamic live show that incorporates live bass and percussion Two Toes are hitting the road and touring in the near future.
