Last week Melbourne MC Mistress dropped her self-titled EP. Mistress has been steadily making a name for herself in the Aussie hip-hop scene since her first mixtape Let Them Eat Cake and her tour with 360 last year. She has now taken her music in a different direction, adding a little bit of soul to her savvy storytelling.
Her first single, Do Or Die, was released last October and was well received by fans loving the new direction. This made her EP highly anticipated, and I hope than fans can agree with me in saying it’s incredible.
The five track EP features Wilo, Tom Fontaine, and Chelsea Donoghue and is entirely produced by Cam Bluff. The EP leaves little room for downtime; it flows seamlessly from track to track and is easily listened to back-to-back.
Mistress’ second single, Strong, was given visuals in celebration of the EP’s release. The song is about Mistress’ struggle to make her voice heard as a female MC without being sexualised: “I don’t need no double Ds to get views or opinions, I just take a couple beats then I cruise to the finish.” Appropriate words for International Women’s Day. Check out the clip below and chant along.
Now Mistress’ EP is out I am sure we will see her out performing before too much longer, so keep an eye out for her shows.
EP is available from CDBaby.
