SIMBA DIALLO x THE BOOMBOX EULOGY: Crates & Collabs
Hip-hop bands aren't nearly as common as they should be. The Boombox Eulogy are bringing that feeling to the New Zealand scene by mixing a level of musicality and instrumentation with 90's inspired boom-bap beats. Simon Townsend, Kriston Batistic, and Josh Harvey make up the production collective, who bring an ear for enjoyable melodies, and crafty song-writing, presenting themselves as an extremely valid option for keen collaborators. On this project they enlist rapper Simba Diallo to bless the mic over their jazz-infused beats. Throughout the EP Simba brings playful yet experimental flows and rhymes which certainly help do justice to the gorgeous instrumentals. He raps about "chasing his dreams" and finding a spot for himself within hip-hop. Upon the conclusion of this EP we're definitely hopeful for Simba's chances as an MC and hope that some more "crate days" can lead to further collaboration with this talented trio.
