RESIN ONE vs ORPHAN ‘Best For You’
‘Best For You’ from Resin One & Orphan is a throwback to hip hop’s classic era: hard hitting boom bap beats topped with a straight forward lyrical delivery.
Based in Auckland, the duo of Resin One and Orphan have spent hours in the studio nurturing the 5 tracks that appear on the debut EP. Available as a limited edition CD and digital download, work is already underway on a full length album.
Luke B aka Orphan is a local Hip hop DJ, Producer & senior engineer at Bigpop Studios. Once a resident DJ at Auckland’s infamous FU Bar, Orphan has supported many Hip-Hop greats over the years. Lately he’s been spending more time in the studio producing & mixing for local artists, most notably King Kapisi, Imagine This and The SuperVillains RMC. A growing list of Orphan remixes can also be found on his soundcloud page.
Rhys R aka Resin One, has also been active the last 3 years, teaming up with Mugz in 2012 for ‘Church Of R.O.A.M.’ which featured fellow locals PNC, INF, Ethical, Fortafy and Sir T. 2013 saw the release of ‘Mellow Warrior’ which also featured David Dallas and Stash. One of NZ’s fast rising stars of underground Hip Hop, Resin thrives on local collaborations & getting his sound out across the globe.
