Curse Ov Dialect Short Info

Curse Ov Dialect is an alternative hip hop group based in Melbourne, Australia. It consists of Raceless, Volk Makedonski, Atarungi, and Paso Bionic.[1] They were the first Australian hip-hop group to be signed to an American record label.[2] They have been described as having a “wild theatricality with an urgent street politic, raw cultural expression with collagist, first generation hip-hop aesthetics, surrealism with activism.

The non-conformist, political ethos of the enigmatic Australian group has garnered a strong worldwide cult following, including that of Samuel T. Herring from Future Islands, who collaborates on the new track Twisted Strangers under his rap alias, Hemlock Ernst which premiered on Highly acclaimed U.S Music Blog Pitchfork in September 2015.

The group are renowned for their intense live performances involving elaborate costumes, audience participation and Dadaist stage theatrics. Sebastian Chan in Cyclic Defrost writes that "their early shows had more in common in terms of theatrics with Throbbing Gristle than anything hiphop" while Joe Tangari in Pitchfork Media describes their performance as “like the Village People gone to the dark side, with a caped, masked weirdo and a staff-wielding Maltese duke flanking the stage and two guys in the middle dressed respectively like a South Asian prince and a mental hospital patient with severe head traumau
