One of the founders of 1200 Techniques is back, bigger and bustier than ever!

Hot on the heels of DJ Perils 'King of The Beats' and N'fa's 'Cause and
Effect' solo artist albums comes the announcement that the two members of
1200 techniques and up and comers Suburban Intellect are hitting the road
for a national tour which is guaranteed to be one to remember.

With over 20 scene-shaping years in the hip hop biz under his belt, there

crowds as Peril. As a DJ, Peril is known Australia wide for his ability to
get even the most static dancefloor warmed up and grooving, supporting
everyone from Busta Rhymes to M.I.A, Talib Kweli, Supernatural, Bahamadia,
Lincoln Park and Jean Grae among many others. As 1200 Techniques
DJ/producer, Peril's deft studio skills saw the trio transcend their
underground status to become the first Australian hip hop group to cross
over into the mainstream, winning an ARIA in 2002. Now Peril has taken his
contribution to Australian hip hop to the next level, with his debut artist
album 'King of the Beats' featuring the smash singles 'About To Blow' and
'Rock Ya Baby' and a host of collaborations which have seen the album
garnering acclaim far and wide since its release.

captivated audiences with his raw and edgy performances. Now, with the group
on a break, the MC returns with his debut solo album "Cause an Effect". The
collaborations on his record are indicative of N'fa's credibility and talent
including team-ups with the likes of Roots Manuva, Mr Yoshiaki from Black
Eyed Peas, The Deceptikonz from New Zealand and of course DJ Peril. The
debut single "Cause an Effect" got major love from radio across the country
including Triple J, Nova and The Edge, with the Heath Ledger directed video
clip being branded as 'ripe clip of the week' on Channel V as well as also
gaining rotation on Video Hits and MTV. N'fa's live following continues to
build due to his performances at Festivals including Homebake, Pyramid Rock
and Splendour in the Grass festivals.

MC's Surreal & Nate B have been honing their skills as Suburban Intellect
for some time now. In recent years Surreal has established himself as one of
the premier freestylers in the country, taking out the Melbourne heats of
the Australian Battle for Supremacy in 2004. Together with brilliant
lyricist Nate B, the duo joined up with teamed up with producer DJ Peril to

dirty with some hard hitting beats and rhymes. Suburban Intellect were

steadily been building. For the block party tour, well known drummer Ritchie
