"There is a quality on Melbourne duo Muph and Plutonic's third album that is all too rare in Australian hip hop: subtley.
This is the pair's finest record and possibly the years best hip hop album." - The Age Newspaper (Melbourne, Australia)


"Well it's official Muph and Plutonic are the best hip hop act in Australia at the moment. 13 tracks of soul, funk and reggae-tinged hip hop that sounds just as good via head phones as it does on a club PA." - JMag, Australia


"Muph and Plutonic are about to be the biggest hip hop act in the country. Proper big. Hilltop Hoods big. The pairing of (producer) Plutonic Lab and (MC) Muphin has been responsible for some of the best hip hop to emerge in this country. Having laid the groundwork with Hunger Pains (2004) and Silence the Sirens (2006), the pair's third album, And Then Tomorrow Came, is set to take them into a whole different league. The culmination of several years hard work and relentless touring, its release is being supported by a huge national tour.

Size of the Soul is the first single from the new album. Melding jazz horns with a laidback swagger, it's already picked up extensive airplay on Triple J. The rest of the album contains a rich blend of soul, funk and reggae tinged hip hop - all of it complimented perfectly by Muph's ridiculous tight flows.

Homegrown hip hop has grown at a phenomenal pace since the turn of the millennium and has finally broken through to the mainstream. And Then Tomorrow Came should help Muph and Plutonic take their rightful place alongside acts like The Herd and Hilltop Hoods at the top of the charts." - citysearch.com.au


"Album number three from this acclaimed melbournian duo shows just how much Muph and Plutonic have grown into one of the countries premier hip hop acts! '...And Then Tomorrow Came' builds on their trademark down-tempo grooves and slick rhymes, while somehow turning up the hooks and making one heck of a catchy record." - Triple J Radio

Bio

Since joining forces in 2001, Muph & Plutonic have propelled themselves into the heart of Australian Hip-Hop and the wider music scene. The evolution of their cumulative talents has shone through both their unique live show and their stand-out albums,
‘Hunger Pains’ (2004), ‘Silence The Sirens’ (2006) and now their third and most mature album to date, ‘…And Then Tomorrow Came’.

Regarded among Australia's finest Hip Hop acts, the ongoing partnership between Muph and renowned producer Plutonic Lab has proven to be even richer than the sum of its parts.

Muph has undoubtedly carved a significant niche for himself at the very head of the Oz Hip Hop movement. His reflective and conscious lyricism fearlessly addresses the full spectrum of the human experience, maintaining a selfless humility that is too seldom seen. Muph draws inspiration from the innovation and sincerity of hip-hop
artists such as The Grouch, Braintax and Pharoahe Monch. Throughout his 15 year career, Muph has worked alongside and collaborated with some
of Australia’s most respected beat craftsmen, including Suffa (Hilltop Hoods), Dave Atkins (Resin Dogs), Jase, Chasm and El Gusto. Most recently
Muph has been featured on recordings by several of Australia’s most notable Hip-Hop artists including Hilltop Hoods, Urthboy, Pegz, and DJ Bonez.

His partner in crime, Plutonic Lab, is one of the most revered producers in Australian Hip-Hop. Plutonic has singlehandedly raised the bar of production in this country with his work on numerous critically acclaimed albums and has
been recognised for his efforts with 3 awards for Best Producer on ozhiphop.com’s annual poll and a nomination for Best Producer at the 2006 DMA Awards. Highlights of his production catalogue
include Pegz’s landmark LPs ‘Axis’ (2005) and ‘Burn City’ (2007), remixes for Hilltop Hoods and Urthboy, along with more recent success with Ivens’
debut LP, ‘Sounds To Expire To’, touted as “the most striking Australian Hip Hop release of the year.” (The Age) Plutonic Lab’s solo albums have revealed yet another string to this producer’s bow.
His third solo instrumental LP, ‘Codes Over Colours,’ (2005) achieved Album of the Week status on Melbourne’s premier underground station 3RRR, while both Muph & Plutonic albums
have attained the coveted Feature Album spot on Triple J.

Since the 2006 release of ‘Silence The Sirens’, Muph & Plutonic have toured extensively taking in some of Australia’s premier music festivals including Big Day Out, Falls Festival, Golden Plains,
Kiss My Grass and Pyramid Rock. As testament to their live prowess, in 2007 Muph & Plutonic were granted the honour of participating in Triple J’s ‘AWOL’ tour, featuring in a phenomenal showcase in Karratha W.A., alongside Powderfinger
and The Grates. The Obese Block Party tour in May 2008 witnessed the introduction of Australian Hip Hop legend DJ Bonez to the group, raising the bar
again to create a genuine powerhouse in the Australian music industry.

In and around their hectic touring schedule, Muph & Plutonic have completed their third album,
‘…And Then Tomorrow Came’, released July 19, 2008. Featuring a live horn section and phenomenal
guest vocalists, rumours abound that this album will eclipse even the excellence of their earlier work.
