Slow-jam/R&B group The Do Yo Thangs sign with HopeStreet Recordings

Australia’s premiere funk/soul record label HopeStreet Recordings is proud to announce The Do Yo Thangs as the newest addition to their roster. The neo soul/R&B group join the likes of Emma Donovan, The Cactus Channel & The Bombay Royale.


The Do Yo Thangs is the brainchild of drummer and singer Hugh Rabinovici, who has also signed a publishing deal through HopeStreet, taking advantage of their recent partnership with Native Tongue. In his own words, Rabinovici’s songwriting “projects the mundane goings on of my inner world in an inordinately funky manner, and captures the inherent beauty that lies within the everyday.” Real music, real musicians, feelings.

The band’s down-tempo hip-hop and R&B-inspired tunes take influences from local artists such as Hiatus Kaiyote, The Harpoons, and an extensive love for Stevie Wonder’s back catalogue. A boastful melodic and progressive outfit, the band incorporates lush vocalising, harmonic complexities and electronic feels.

The Do Yo Thangs will release their debut EP through HopeStreet Recordings in the coming months.
