Following a breakthrough year in 2020 resulting in a nomination for Best Independent Hip Hop Album / EP at the 2021 AIR Awards, Sydney duo St. Christoph & Shaade are set to release their sophomore EP titled No Pressure on Friday 12th November 2021. With world-class production, No Pressure has been delicately crafted for a cohesive listening experience that’ll make you slam the repeat button. No Pressure consists of 5 tracks, including recently released tracks Pressin’ and Sippin’ featuring Brisbane young gun iiiConic, supported by tastemakers nationally and internationally.

The focal track First Time ft. Meeks is a hip-hop / RnB blend of goodness that instantly delivers a feel-good vibe, with a driving funk bassline adding soul and the signature St. Christoph & Shaade panache to the uptempo track. Can’t Seem To Let You Go, flips the script (and arrangement) with some heavy neo-soul influence by Daniel March and Scott Teu to build hype through the instrumentation and catchy hook. While the final track You’re Ready ft. Sergiio offers a throwback hip hop sound mixed with some downtempo French house and some G-Funk inspired Talkbox showcasing that the duo is in a musical lane all of their own.

“If you dig a little deeper and pick up on the themes – the start, the middle, the end – it is all about old relationships and working through the emotions attached with those. Arrangement-wise, we wanted to showcase our admiration for people doing their own thing. We have a real respect for people like that and wanted to collaborate with artists and producers that we’re really vibing, the ones that are moving in their own lane too. Daniel, Scotty, Meeks, Voli, iiiConic and def Sergiio who’s just on his own planet.”
