Staying with all things partly Antipodean, Quakers’ self-titled debut album is released today. To be honest, I picked up Fitta Happier last month and didn’t really get it at first. Last night, however, I gave it another go and it had me bouncing off my bedroom walls.

Quakers is the much-anticipated multi-MC hip hop project featuring Portishead’s Geoff Barrow as Fuzzface, sharing production duties with engineer 7-Stu-7 and Australian producer Katalyst. With more than thirty MCs on over forty tracks, it should be quite an impressive piece of work, especially if the first track is anything to go by. And the guest list is not to be sniffed at, including the likes of Dead Prez, Phat Kat, MED and Guilty Simpson as well as a host of new talent. You can listen to Smoke, another cut off the album, below.

Download both beats and check out the Quakers promotional video here. Pick up a copy of the album here. Find out more about the Quakers project in this interview with Street Date.
