Metals - Get Yourself A Gun

Metals (AU) Live @ Cassette #9 Video!

MUM of Auckland’s Cassette Nine, is proud to present the New Zealand debut appearance of the Australian genre bending dance rock duo- METALS.

METALS is Christopher Coe and Candice Butler.

Chris is a Melbourne based producer/writer/DJ who has been composing, performing and releasing recordings under the Digital Primate moniker for several years now. His most recent release "Keep Calm and Carry On" was mixed by The Mad Professor.

Raised in South Australia, Candice was a published poet at age 11 and grew up on stage and TV, performing as a dancer and actor throughout her childhood.

Finding her heart in hip-hop and neo- soul, she performed with local musicians and by chance came to the attention of Professor Griff of Public Enemy and was invited to perform live with them during their Australian tour. This led to an invitation to record her first demo in Atlanta, produced by Professor Griff himself. Candice jumped at the chance, fully immersing herself in the ALT hip-hop and soul scenes and traveling with Griff and Public Enemy in the US.

On returning to Australia, Candice made Melbourne home and began singing and working on many diverse music projects from rock to house, techno to deep funk. After being spotted MCing at an all female hip hop event in Melbourne, Candice was linked up with Digital Primate. The two then decided to write and record.

Shit happened.
