MP3: Urthboy – “Your Thing” + Help Make A Video


As Elefant Traks CEO, a member of The Herd and a solo powerhouse in his own right, Urthboy is a pretty much independent music’s ultimate renaissance man.

Whether its his relentless touring, his close relationship with fans, or his prolific label output; the guy just gets it right. Every god damn time. For an example, let’s just review his activity over the past week…

Firstly, the guy drops a previously unreleased mp3 online, for free. Recorded in Istanbul, “Your Thing” was produced by Count Bounce and features backup from a handful of kids. In true Elefant Traks style, it’s effortlessly groovy and features one of those hooks that just bounces around your brain like tiny particles of Flubber.

Secondly, the guy calls out to his fans, asking for help making a video for the track. Find out how to contribute here.

Thirdly, he announces a handful of tour dates, officially cementing his status as the hardest working guy on the planet. Oh, and if that wasn’t enough, he’ll be doing workshops about performing, songwriting and production in each town. E-mail meg@musicnsw.com to reserve your free workshop spot!
