With a platinum record, multi platinum and gold singles and two ARIA already under his belt, it's nogreat secret that Drapht is a songwriting prodigy. Whether you focus on his lyrics, his melodic hooks(or focus on nothing at all and just enjoy yourself) as a songwriter Drapht can pretty much doeverything. Each of his four subsequent albums –Pale Rider(2003),Who Am I(2005),BrothersGrimm(2008) andLife Of Riley(2010) – brought increasing levels of complexity and refinement,ascending Drapht to the absolute upper echelon of Australia's stacked card of hip-hop , he is one of the albumSeven Mirrorscontinues the upward incline of Drapht's artistic output, showing off evenmore songwriting flair and linguistic dexterity than ever before. Piecing each song together with amyriad of rhythmical, melodic and lyrical hooks,Seven Mirrorsputs Drapht's arsenal of musicalweapons in the hands of an amazing list of collaborators and guests – sometimes pairing with musicroyalty and other times introducing exciting new voices. Party anthemMexico(featuring Dune Rats)is begging to be a single,Don Quixote(featuring Hilltop Hoods) feels destined to be a live favourite,whileBADblasts out of the speakers with the scorching voice of LA-based Nat Dunn, andMonsoonintroduces Byron Bay's smooth-toned Bradley Stone to the world.At the apex of this mountain of talent is Drapht himself, directing this cast of virtuoso musicians withgrand vision and fastidious Mirrorsweaves colourful narrative and wit with the sternfabric of personal expression and catharsis. Drapht delves deep and reveals a lot onSeven Mirrors.The album chronicles Drapht's personal relationships – whether introspective, family, with partners orexes – exploring them through the concept of the Seven Essene Mirrors... the existential premise thatour relationships reflect back upon ourselves. Perhaps the height of Drapht's skill set can be seen inhow masterfully subtle this narrative is throughout the album. There's a concept album to explore ifyou want to get deep, butSeven Mirrorscan also just be a bangin' set of tunes, if that's what theoccasion calls for.A perfect blend of thoughtful introvert and entertaining extrovert, Drapht's connection has alwaysbeen his realness. When we look at Drapht we can see ourselves reflecting Mirrorsis abeautiful metaphor for this connection; an album that is as much for the writer as it is for his again Drapht has stepped up and once again he is at the absolute top of the game. Welcome toSeven Mirrors...
