30/70  —  Misrepresented

Misrepresented is the debut single from the Australian collective on Rhythm Section International with more to follow in the coming months. The single itself is both a cry for help and a call to arms, it balances delicate poetry and potent aggression with ease - all of this done with a beguiling pop sensibility.

We all write individually and bring tunes in and jam on them, so there are a lot of different aesthetics coming together. We're all interested in slightly different genres of music, but the overarching theme is hip-hop and jazz… Fusion hip-hop is definitely the vibe.

Imagine the musical equivalent of incense – heady, evocative and mystical. Once the best-kept secret in Melbourne, Australia, the 30/70 collective are beguiling fans globally with their splendidly sensory cosmic jazz grooves. The new fam took their name from the postcode of Northcote, a bohemian inner-suburb.30/70 have developed a hybrid sound from spiritual jazz, Afrobeat, acid-funk, boom-bap, neo-soul, glitch-hop, electro-boogie and psychedelia.. 30/70 is less of a 'band' than a community, with five key members: Allysha Joy (lead vocals), Ziggy Zeitgeist (drums), Henry Hicks (bass), Thhomas Mansfield (guitar/synths), and Jarrod Chase (Fender Rhodes). The community was conceived by housemates Ziggy, Henry and Thhomas, who were vibing to hip-hop, jamming and iInitially, cutting instrumental beats. The family expanded as they befriended Jarrod and soul sister/poet MC Allysha through Melbourne's buoyant jazz and soul scene.
