NZ rappers Swidt announce debut album Stoneyhunga

In less than two weeks, Onehunga-based hip hop collective SWIDT will release their debut album Stoneyhunga.

Crafted entirely by in-house super producer SmokeyGotBeatz, and mixed at Neil Finn’s Roundhead Studio, the anticipation to SWIDT’s debut album has been growing ever since the boys burst on to the NZ music scene with the breakout track No More Parties In Stoneyhunga. Onehunga’s favourite sons were immediately embraced as the new voice in NZ hip hop, and the SWIDT movement was born.

Two years later, Stoneyhunga is the culmination of SWIDT’s vision and ambition, featuring international collaborations with personnel from TDE and PRO ERA, two of this generation’s hottest and most influential hip hop labels.

The album chronicles the journey of five boys growing up in pre-gentrification, and pre-smartphone Onehunga. A coming-of-age hip hop musical in the tradition of films such as Stand By Me and The Outsiders, Stoneyhunga is a poetic cultural time-capsule of NZ youth between 1999 and 2005.

The album will be preceded by the first official single Player Of The Day to be released on July 21.
