August Launching Pad - Ellesquire


Ellesquire’s debut album ‘Ready’ was released through BigVillage in August 2011, and since then has made a significant impact on the Australian hip hop music landscape. The self deprecating humour of his single “On The Prowl”became a triple J sensation, coming in at #103 just outside of the 2011 hottest 100.  His second single “Chasing The Pay” also received high rotation on JJJ. Ellesquire has proved himself as a versatile performer, from playing Peats Ridge Festival in 2011 to supporting such acts as the teacha of hip hop himself, KRS One, at the Enmore theatre and Danny Brown at Vivid live fest at the Sydney Opera House in 2012.

Ellesquire's latest release, 'The Messtape' is a polished collection of songs that have popped-up on Soundcloud, Youtube, and on various Ellesquire radio appearances over the last 12 months. The tracks have been fleshed out, re-recorded, mixed, mastered and spliced together with brand new unreleased songs. Part experiment, part scrapbook and part mixtape.
