Sydney producer Chasm has just released his first full length album. "Beyond the Beat Tape" is album of the week this week on Triple J.
I heard a couple of the tracks today and so far it's sounding pretty good.
Chasm's first EP was released a few years back through Melbourne label Awakenings. He also co-produced the Astronomy Class (Ozi Batla, Chasm, & Sir Robbo) album which was released on Elefant Traks and did pretty well on triple J.
Beyond the Beat Tape features a whole bunch of guest MCs including Pegz, Muphin, Ivens, Urth Boy, Ozi Batla and my favourite Australian MC, Mantra. You can hear a few of the album's tracks on Chasm's myspace page. If you like what you hear, the album should be available at most large CD stores. It's also available for download on iTunes. Beyond the Beat Tape is out now on Obese Records.
