Citing his environment as the main influence of his music, after travelling throughout Europe and Asia in 2009, it's no surprise that Sydney-born hip-hop producer ISHU has returned to Australia with a bag full of fresh ideas and a new vision. Collecting samples and field recordings along the way; ISHU found inspiration in every country he visited, immersing himself in local culture and sketching beats for his forthcoming album release. Back in Melbourne, in his home studio, the process began to bring the rough recordings to life. This two year process produced the concept album, A World In Progress. A contemporary mix of world music soundscapes, down tempo electronic beats and heavy hip hop blends, it is an aural and sensory delight that takes the listener on a journey across Europe. The first single to be lifted from the album is 'Progress', featuring well known Melbourne MC Mantra. This track was inspired by the sights and sounds of Istanbul, Turkey. Mantra's lyrics are directly related to progress in relation to the modern world and ancient traditions. Following in the footsteps of producers like Mad Professor, DJ Shadow and DJ Krush; ISHU has prepared a modern day live production show using a laptop, Ableton and a gang of MIDI controllers. Blending each song into the next, ISHU gets hands on with the music, having full access to all elements of each song and endless effects possibilities. Keeping things live and spontaneous, ensuring that every show is different from the last.
