Mantra

Following on from radio anthem Loudmouth, Melbourne rapper MANTRA has dropped the emotionally heavy Break Tradition – the second single from his forthcoming album, ‘Telling Scenes’. Due for release in September, ‘Telling Scenes’ is an album in the most creative sense: not just a collection of songs, but an experience that takes its listener on a journey. As one part of this journey, Break Tradition represents a side of MANTRA very close to his heart. Using dexterous rhymes to unfold stark and literal narratives, MANTRA delves into the cycle of violence that sees the endless chain of one person passing their abuse on to the next, until someone makes the conscious decision to disinherit it. To break the tradition. Whether fate or a self-fulfilling prophecy, MANTRA knew Break Tradition was going to be something special even before he wrote it. Listening through a catalogue of beats by rising producer Cam Bluff, one in particular jumped out at MANTRA, instantly resonating with him on a deep level. He knew he had to put something heartfelt on top of it. By the time the song was complete, MANTRA had unfolded some of the best rhymes of his career, added the multi-layered vocals of Melbourne’s Massive hip-hop choir, and capped everything off with a suitably grand chorus courtesy of Cisco Tavares. Powerful and relatable, Break Tradition had evolved into one of MANTRA’s best songs, and had more than earned its place on his ambitious new album. As a cavalcade of this caliber of song, ‘Telling Scenes’ confidently pushes the boundaries of hip hop, announcing in no uncertain terms that MANTRA has reached the next level of his craft.
