Future rap duo Teether & Kuya Neil (Naarm/Melbourne) have returned with their 9 song mixtape STRESSOR, out now on Chapter Music.

When rapper Teether & producer Kuya Neil began to collaborate in late 2020, two powerful forces in the Melbourne underground came together to create something rare and special.

Teether has a deep dive catalogue of solo releases to his name, largely released via the X Amount collective of which he is a founding member, including 2021’s acclaimed MACHONA. He has also collaborated with billy woods, Don Glori, Agung Mango, Alice Skye, DJ PGZ, Two Birds, Nikodimos and many more.

Kuya Neil is just as prolific. His CV ranges from production for the likes of Bayang the Bushranger, Papaphilia, zk King, Mirasia and Various Asses, to his work with Melbourne Sound School.

Together, Teether & Kuya Neil make future-focused rap informed by everything from experimental sound art to modern club styles like footwork, gqom and bass music. Teether’s nonchalant but vivid words infuse Neil’s hyper- modern production.

STRESSOR includes features from Sydney rapper Sevy, Melbourne producer/vocalist zk King (aka acclaimed author Jamie Marina Lau) and frequent Teether collaborator Realname.

Release: February 3, 2023, Chapter Music/Inertia Music
