IVAN OOZE Releases New Single

IVAN OOZE Releases New Single Ahead of Raggamuffin Performance

Melbourne indie rapper IVAN OOZE has released his new single Trippin' from his upcoming mixtape, ahead of his RAGGAMUFFIN performance.

Trippin' is the lead single off his upcoming IVAN OOZE mixtape and is available for streaming here.

IVAN OOZE had this to say about the single, “Trippin' is about a time when my mother thought chasing a career in music was more a dream that a realistic job. It breaks down the lows of what we both felt and that attitude we both had of never give up on something or someone that you love.”

It’s been a heady couple of months for indie rap sensation IVAN OOZE.Following the release of his debut EP 'RINGWOOD RICH' on August 14th he has literally been catapulted into the spotlight. With his fascination for rhyming and a signature super-fast flow, in less than a few weeks following the release, IVAN OOZE began experiencing the support and attention that takes artists a lifetime to achieve.

Borrowing his alias from his favourite Mighty Morphin Power Rangers villain and apart of the new breed of hip hop music, IVAN OOZE is pushing the boundaries and connecting with his audience on a massive level, amassing a very impressive following across his socials in a short period of time and attracting the industry support to match.

For being pretty fresh on the scene, IVAN OOZE, has performed at some pretty impressive gigs and the list continues to grow as IVAN OOZE heads off to support CYPRESS HILL and ICE CUBE on their upcoming Australian tour dates in December, and flies over to Auckland, NZ for his first international gig inRAGGAMUFFIN MUSIC FESTIVAL, before flying back to perform at BEYOND THE VALLEY MUSIC FESTIVAL in Phillip Island over NYE.
