"Lefta Centa/Blindhoarse show April '05"

"...they're a group from Newcastle that have been playing live shows in Newcastle for about a year and a half and are starting to pull some big crowds up there. They've played at shows with groups like Downsyde, Hospice Crew, Funkoars, TZU, and Brethren. They have a real upbeat style and really put a lot into their live performances and getting the crowd going. Their sound has two hip hop mc's rhyming over beats and tracks ranging from hip hop to drum and bass to bounce to funk to reggae. They have up to seven on stage at once, playing all kinds of gear. Overall they have a fat sound..." – 3D World article April '05 - 3D World

Bio

Lefta Centa started as a crew of MC's and DJ's that used to jam in front of rowdy party goers at an infamous after party venue on Newcastle, NSW's outskirts called "Da Lodge". After a short while, the jamming grew more structure and some tidy tracks were made. Party goers would begin skipping a night out in town altogether to come and spend a night, or sometimes 2 at Da Lodge. This is where their first track "Double Header" came from. Lefta Centa's early style was clearly defined in this track and influences were obvious - some straight up Hip Hop verses with a very aussie party flavour, mixed with a bit of beat producer Morley's Drum&bass breakdowns.
Today there are more members and a very diverse spread of tracks, no 2 are the same and instrument parts vary also. The electric violin is an awesome feature in many tracks as are Miss Carlzee's stylin vocals.

Lefta Centa for the last couple of years have played on the same stage as some national and international Hip Hop heavyweights such as: Downsyde, The Herd, Eternia, The Resin Dogs, TZU, Muph & Plutonic, Butterfingers, Bliss & Esso, Funkoars, Brethren, Hospice Crew and more. They have also complimented big rock acts such as COG, Karnivool, Sleepy Jackson, Faker & more.

Lefta Centa recently were finalists in the Hip Hop category for the ABC music awards and their track "The Game" enjoyed local, national and international air/web play on ABC and JJJ radio.

Currently working hard in the studio on their first full length album, which will be self produced and recorded, Lefta Centa are keen to explode onto a much broader stage and rock some even larger crowds.
