Solo Sydney emcees Phatchance and Coptic Soldier have supported heavyweight acts like Method Man & Redman, DJ Premier and The Beat Nuts, and are playing their final free show at Oxford Art Factory this week.

Chance Waters aka Phatchance released Inkstains in 2009, was a featured artist on Triple J Unearthed, and drops insights that other artists would stumble over. His catchy, lover-not-a-fighter lyrics are supported by well-layered harmonies and epic instrumentation.

Luke Girgris aka Coptic Soldier launched his street release The Past Three Years Diary in 2009, teamed up with soul vocalist Miriam Waks to release The Sound of Wings in 2010, and has a sense of poetics to make Henry Lawson weep. His beats are beautifully textured and his social commentary is both searingly honest and endearingly self critical.

Catch them at the Oxford alongside Charlie Mayfair and Sydney local Atlas B Salvensen.
