It was a heady 2014 for Melbourne indie rapper IVAN OOZE as he was literally catapulted into the spotlight. With an EP scheduled to drop last August, IVAN OOZE decided he would release a freestyle video every Friday in the lead up to its release, which turned him into a viral hip hop sensation. With his fascination for rhyming and a signature super-fast flow, in less than a few weeks IVAN OOZE (Ben Townsend) began experiencing the support and attention that takes artists lifetimes to achieve and he soon had his legions of fans waiting with baited breath for the release of his first EP Ringwood Rich.

Borrowing his alias from his favourite Mighty Morphin Power Rangers villain and part of the new breed of hip hop music that is taking the country by storm, IVAN OOZE is pushing the boundaries and connecting with his audience. His previous two singles Trippin’ and Jimi Hendrix have seen him cement his social media hype into legitimate industry buzz, achieving support from more than his fair share of media and other figures.

​Still considered pretty fresh on the scene, IVAN OOZE​ ​has performed at some pretty impressive gigs and the list continues to grow​, having supported CYPRESS HILL (US), ICE CUBE (US), ALLDAY, ILLY, THUNDAMENTALS over their Australian tour dates AND performing at BEYOND THE VALLEY (VIC) and RAGGAMUFFUN (NZ) festivals in December!​ Following the recent release of his mixtape ‘The Social Alien’ to much acclaim, it saw singles ‘TRIPPIN’ and ‘JIMI HENDRIX’ receive support from Triple J Unearthed and spot spins on Triple J, this wonderkid just continues to garner rave reviews and new fans. ​

​Heading out on the road with Seth Sentry (who could easily claim the crown as currently one of this co​untry’s best MC’s), this is an awesome opportunity for IVAN’S regional fans to see him live for the first time. IVAN OOZE is fast developing a reputation for his high octane killer live shows stunning audiences around the country……DO NOT MISS THIS CHANCE TO SEE HIM LIVE.
