PR: Drapht - "Sing It (The Life of Riley)" f/ on MTV Iggy

New York, NY- MTV Iggy is featuring the video for “Sing It (The Life Of Riley)” by Drapht. The melodic whistle and drum-break laden tune is the perfect soundboard for Australian emcee, Drapht to reminisce about his childhood until now in a life surrounded by hip hop. The video reflects this narration in a dream-like state with Drapht opening doors of his past, sometimes with metaphors including a cypher with masked animals. The song which is the title track of Drapht’s newest album “The Life Of Riley” drops in the U.S. on May 8th and is already certified gold in his homeland of Australia. It’s worth noting that last year only two Australian artists had Number 1 records in their homeland, by now you are all familiar with Gotye..Now it’s time you met with other guy!


Speaking on the track, Drapht (aka Paul Ridge) says “It was by far the hardest track to break the back of for the album. However I think that had more to do with the bullshit summer Perth was having and having no air conditioning in my home studio for its entirety. The content of the song is based around - growing up and being unknowingly influenced by other peoples’ choices. Realizing 15 years down the track that like it or not, if it wasn't for these people you would’nt be in the same position you are today.” 

A video for the break-away single “Rapunzel” (which reached double platinum sales status) was recently featured in the U.S. on Crave Online ( The two videos viewable now give an example of the range of Drapht’s music which incorporates elements of live instrumentation with samples that traverse through a record collection without boundaries and topped with the emcee’s uncanny sense of lyrical hooks. The album features production from long time musical collaborator Trials (also from Aussie hip hop outfit, Funkoars) as well as a veritable treasure trove of guest emcees (Nfa, Urthboy, Mantra) outside musicians, producers (M-Phazes) and singers (Abbe May, Simon Cox).

@PlanetPremRock - Czech Tour & New Single

PremRock - Czech Tour & New Single

I would like to start this email by thanking you for your continued support in the projects I've released in the past year. It truly does mean the world to me. Working without a manager or publicist I cannot state enough the importance of what your support has done for my career... So for real, for real: Thank you.

Ok on to the business... I am currently in the Czech Republic working on a joint EP with Czech producer Talpas to be released through the European label: Everydays Label based in the Czech Republic. Release date TBD.

I would love to share with the promotional single available for stream right here: "Love of the Drum"

Sure this collaboration could have been done on the internet by trading files... but if you know me, then you know why I did this and continue to do outlandish things for my art. Whether or not this makes the album cut remains to be seen.

Also here are the dates for the min-tour we will be embarking on.
4/27 Domažlice, CZ Rep. / Rodriguez Bar
4/28 Chomutov, CZ Rep. / Hany Bany Bar
5/02 Prague, CZ Rep. / Cross Club
5/04 Karlovy Vary, CZ Rep. / Masařka Bar / + Dj Thovt
5/05 Hradec Králové, CZ Rep./ Station bar

Thank you once again for all the support!

All the Best,
