"Jurassic5 support @ Eaton's Hill Hotel, 22nd March 2014"

"Schoolfight have the instruments of a rock band, but the soul of a hip hop crew. The MC is on point but the real star is the trumpeter. They really get the crowd ready for things to come, with a mini-mosh pit forming for Local Heroes. This reviewer highly recommends seeing them live if you like Aussie hip hop". - Paul Mulkearns - The Music

"Kuranda Roots Festival, 27th June 2014"

“Schoolfight are the nominal bad boys of the festival with their feisty high voltage musical style and cheeky lyrics about…check out their songs. Taking big slugs of Hiphop, funk and rock, with some metal and jazz chasers on the side, this band make tension and dissolve it with intelligence and wit. The band are tight’n’springy and easy with the massive sound they lay upon us. The vocal energy of mad-for-it MC eMcyte (and da keyboard player) is the knock-out punch. Even an authorities sanctioned gap in their set didn’t stop Schoolfight from keeping the energy level way way up, coming back on to entertain the crowd in grand style, leaving everyone both sweaty and refreshed”. - Gawain Barker - NQ Music Press

"Cold Devine" Single - 2010 - National and Local radio airplay

"Robots" Single - June 2011

"Curse of Work" LP - Due for Release 2012



Schoolfight is a six-piece mix of righteous Australian hip-hop infused with dirty funk undertones and smooth, three-part crooning verses. On-point flow, addictive keys and solid bass lines that are as big as they are bad-ass perfectly combine with sweeping trumpet and chugging guitar to create a powerful sound that dominates the recorded and live domains. 

Work on the third Schoolfight album, due for release in early 2016, is well under way with the first single ‘Australia’ being recognised in the finals of the 2015 QMA Urban category, a great follow up to Schoolfight’s 2011 QMA Urban winner, ‘Robots’. 

Schoolfight hit the live stage hard last year, touring Far North Queensland, stomping Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast and visiting beautiful Byron Bay and northern NSW. 2014 saw Schoolfight grace stages in support of some heavyweight acts including the mighty Jurassic 5, TrueVibeNation, Horrowshow & The Funkoars. 

The Fight’s live show, genre mixing style and musicality combine to create an experience to cater to any crowd. It’s hip hop based, but much more than that - catchy hooks, big beats, live instruments - real music, executed by a team of blokes that have stayed the course and continue to keep it real, for real. 

This year Schoolfight mark their 10th year in the music game. This alone screams volumes about the band and the music they make. The fact that crowds keep coming back show why Schoolfight is one of Brisbane's most sought-after and respected live acts, blessed with a large and loyal fan base stretching coast-to-coast. This isn't Jonny come lately radio meh - this is quality live Australian music. 

The name Schoolfight has become the bench mark for testing those who claim to know about Australian music, chances are if you haven't heard of us, you are a commercial stooge, and we feel sorry for you. 

The next single "2am" drops June 2015. 

“No ego, no bullshit. We make party music, it’s not rocket science”, says front man eMCYTe (Scene Magazine, Feb 14)
