Tomorrow the 26th November marks the official kick off for the Kings Konekted-Corrupted Citizens LP trilogy of terror. We’re launching the release in 3 key parts with bits n pieces littered in between over the next couple of months, so please keep Unkut Recordings bookmarked on all media forms for updates regularly.
Pt.1 excitingly commences tomorrow with both the CD pre sale, by itself & in a LTD CD & T-Shirt pre sale pack and the launch of the first video to accompany the release.
The CD will continue to sell throughout the campaign. Many heads get caught sleepin’ on the humble CD these days with the recent love for black plastic, but best believe you don’t wanna sleep on this CD…
Like all good hard to obtain triple threats in any collection, each format brings something different to the next, in this case, the CD is packed with goodies from the 16 track deep audio to the incredible photography, illustration & design courtesy of Josh Davis, Sam Hillcoat and April77 respectively, throughout the packaging, including a 20 page booklet containing all track lyrics.
The CD/Tee pack is limited. We’ll be running limited quantities of each merch design dropping in conjunction with each audio format. The first flavour is in theme with the title track.
Pre orders for the 1st pack will run from THURSDAY 26th NOVEMBER – SUNDAY 29th NOVEMBER.
NO NEED TO PANIC, that’s 4 days and nights to lock in your pack with selected size. After Sunday, we will pull the CD / Tee pre order from the site. That style T-Shirt will then only be available from supporting stores in limited sizes.
All Corrupted Citizens Pre Orders will ship week commencing 14th December. CD’s will hit supporting stores & outlets 21stDecember.
Tomorrow night the first big visual component will also unfold.
The clip for the track “Value Of Adaption” will unveil across the globe at 8pm AEDT. Set aside an hour and tune in for youtube links to get a glimpse of this 5 minute plus banger. Unkut Recs award winning visual squadron have taken this one well beyond, so please do take the time to pop the corn, chill the brews, and press repeat…
Digi, Tape & Wax to follow to complete the cipher, but when the shits pure dope, only a little at a time…
On behalf of all involved in the entire project, we thank you for your support in advance and hope you enjoy the ride.

Karsniogenics is proud to welcome the latest addition to the K roster – Gaz Hazard. Gaz, renowned within the underground Australian Hip-Hop traps for his honest brutal rhyming and live stage performances. He is sure to add a higher calibre of rawness to the Karsniogenics label.
Hailing from Brisbane’s south side Gaz Hazard was a founding member of underground rap group CRS (Cool, Rad, Skills or Cunt Rap Syndicate). CRS garnered cult-like support in the mid to late 2000’s following the release of the crew’s debut album, Gully Down Crooks. Known for their rowdiness and a “back to basics” approach the Cunt Rap Syndicate finally reopened their doors in 2013 with the first full-length release from one of their most promising MC’s with Gaz Hazard’s Hazardous To Ya Health album.
Hazardous To Ya Health saw Gaz trawling through a lifetime of memories from the opposite side of the law, a vantage point from which very few local MC’s can truly speak. The album featured the remarkable talents of fellow CRS members Pors 1 and Servo who provide five verses and nine stellar beats respectively. The album also relished collaborations with close mates the 750 Rebels and Hired Goons; Ken Oath, Billy Bunks, Bigfoot, Jake Biz and Tornts bringing a powerhouse of Australian hip-hop to it’s forefront.
Since the release of Hazardous To Ya Health, Gaz has been honing his skills and perfecting his craft both on stage and in the lab. With a number of admirable shows under his belt including three Stand Up supports in 2014 (Brisbane, Melbourne and Adelaide) and a few local headliners between. The time has come for Gaz to once again embark on his solo journey with his sophomore album well in the works and expected to release late 2015.
In celebration of the label announcement Gaz has composed a new track and video titled ‘The Blueprint’ shot, cut and stabbed by long time friend Heathen Steelberg. The track is produced by a Gemini Method collaboration of label compadre Akidcalledchubz and Dontez of Kings Konketed (Unkut Recordings) and features killah cuts from the Karsniogenics head honcho Dj Dcide. Please help us welcome Gaz to the brotherhood that be Karsniogenics records and wish him a long productive career of independently released Hip-Hop music.
