Raw Collective-Wise Horizons EP

Raw Collective is a project initially started in Wellington with Jack Cromie (aka Dose Decepta) Raw Deezy (Evil Mule), & Pauly Lowe aka Professor Plum (Blvd. Nights). 

With their own recording studio, producers, beat makers, audio engineers and a string of musicians the ‘Raw Collective’s aim and passion is to create thoughtful and fresh hip-hop in the studio, backed up with an impressive full band live show.

Pauly Lowe (guitar/vocals) velvet vocals intertwined with Rory McAlister (raps/producer) hard hitting lyricism is a well fitted juxtaposition. Jock Jones (samples and keyboards) creates magic on the keys, Blain Fitzpatrick (bass) keeps that funky bass flowing while Jack Cromie (drums) keeps the tempo with dazzling virtuosity. Featuring a live 3 piece horn section lead by Ben Hunt (trumpet) with Sax and Trombone. 

To sum them up...Raw Collective is a unique blend of Hip Hop, Funk and Soul.

Influences include esteemed producers such as J Dilla, Madlib, RZA, with a touch of the familiar ’Wellington style’ funk and reggae artists.
After a great response at the Newtown Festival (Wellington, New Zealand) and regular airplay on Radio Active, Raw Collective is quickly gaining a big following in Wellington. 

Now hitting the road to promote the Wise Horizons EP, Raw Collective are looking forward to sharing their unique sound with the rest of New Zealand.  Each show will be filled with banging beats and funky melodies, punctuated with sharp conscious raps , draped in the darkest minor chords and layered with soothing vocals all wrapped up with some funky ass bass lines to get people dancing!
