This week we’re taking a look at Crowd Funding campaigns from New South Wales rockers Hammers, the return to music after a decade of silence from hip hop pioneers 1200 Techniques, and help create a 12 inch that consists entirely of sampled sounds from a coffee machine in Alice Springs.
Melbourne hip hop group 1200 Techniques need your help to fund their new EP, Time Has Come. After a decade of silence, the EP is their first new music since their 2004 album Consistency Theory. Time Has Come is all about the message beyond the music.
“This EP has been a journey for us… We started, stopped, and started again… At times we thought we wouldn’t actually get it done, but the magnetism of the music drew us all together to make it so. We all felt a kind of greater purpose to making music together again… “
Pledgers can donate and grab a copy of some 1200 Techniques merch and music here:
Alice Springs community radio personalities Kamkorda and Rocklishus are set to release a 12 inch record titled The Grinds. The album is entirely sampled with sounds from around Karkorda’s coffee machine, which is located in his popular Alice Springs venue Kafegonzo.
Back in late 2012, the two hosts of the local radio show ‘Humbug Rehab’, locked themselves inside Kafegonzo and began recording what ended up being a mix of over 100 unique sounds extracted from around the coffee machine.
To keep Kamkorda and Rocklishusthe coffee beats wax dream alive, head over to their Pozible page to donate. The costs of getting a record pressed, full colour artwork included, packaged and shipped from overseas are very high.

“Taking influences from a diverse range of styles; stoner rock, metal, blues, and blended with the anecdotal lyrical style of country then spat in your face with the attitude of punk, HAMMERS aren’t reinventing the wheel, they’re just keeping it rockin’ and rollin’.”
All of the money you pledge will go directly towards the cost the daily costs for the band in Breaking Point Studios, Wollongbar.
In return Pledgers can pick up a copy of the record and other prizes with donation.
