Australia's record-smashing hip-hop act, Bliss N Eso, are set to touch down in the U.S. and begin their long-term assault on the continent. The Sydney-based trio have exploded in the past two years and are generating huge amounts of hype, both in their home country and with an increasing fan base across the globe. Their latest #1 platinum album includes collaborations with RZA and long-time friend Xzibit, both of which have helped spread their word to the masses across the ocean. They have broken all kinds of records down under, including the highest and fastest selling tours by a hip-hop act alongside records for album sales and single charts. Their last two albums have both spawned the equal highest amount of tracks in JJJ's iconic Hottest 100 in their respective years, and they have headlined most of the country's biggest festivals in recent times. Bliss N Eso are renowned for their electrifying live performance, which helped generate their huge fan base in a time when Australian radio wouldn't play the genre. They'll give U.S. audiences one of their first ever glimpses of this raw energy at their performances at the Vibe Magazine Stages (16th March at 10.45pm), and at the Aussie BBQ showcases in New York and Austin. Anyone that's seen Bliss N Eso in the flesh will know that this is an absolute must-see, but their international fan base will just have to be content that they'll have no idea what to expect.
