1200 Techniques
Formed in 1997, 1200 Techniques started out as DJ Peril and brothers Nfamas and Kabba, soon after Peril's brother Kemstar joined and together they wrote many of the tracks that appeared on the debut single Hard As Hell and the debut album Choose One, that came out in early 2002. However about half way through 1998 Kabba moved to England, and then there were three. You can trace DJ Peril & Kemstar's involvement in the hip hop scene right back to the early 1980's as pre-teens. With the distinction of being a founding member of one of Melbourne's first ever hip hop crews The Island Boys, Peril also DJ'd in bands such as Big Pacific, Rollercoaster, Dub & Reggae and Blow Sound Unit.

Although Kabba's vocals appear on several Techniques' tracks, 1200 TECHNIQUES debuted as a threesome with the Triple J favourite 'Hard As Hell'.
