Social Alien 2 / CD
Ivan Ooze 'Social Alien 2' CD
In March of 2015 a mixtape by the name of 'The Social Alien' surfaced on the internet. It wasn't before long that the 'The Social Alien' mixtape racked up tens of thousands of streams and had sold thousands of copies and more importantly, introduced us to a 21 year old long haired rapper from Melbourne that went by the moniker of Ivan Ooze.
At that time, Ooze was working the register at a Toyworld in Ringwood and didn't have a clue about what was to come. Fast forward to 2017...over a million streams on the original release, countless tours, festivals, hangovers, missed flights and a Wu Tang collaboration...Ivan Ooze is regarded as one of the new leaders of hip hop in Australia.
With his current collaboration with electronic act Crooked Colours on high rotation with triple j and having just wrapped up a massive national tour supporting good friends Peking Duk...Ooze has flipped the script to bring us part 2 of his acclaimed mixtape:
'The Social Alien 2: Memoirs from the Milky Way'.
Originally slated to release an EP this coming Summer, Ooze has taken it back to where it all began and offers us a 21 track mixtape - a vivid journey through the mind of an unaccepted individual trying to find his place in the world. It reflects on Ooze's past experiences and how future ones might play out whilst being tangled among overwhelming thoughts of life and death.
