Rise of The New School


Chasm is one of Australia's finest producers. He's up there with Plutonic Lab, The Herd, Dazastah, Hermitude and Weapon X. Some reggae and dancehall influenced beats on the LP but the standout tracks are the solid hip hop beats. Beyond The Beat Tape has some big name rappers such as Pegz, Ozi Batla, Urthboy, Muph, The Tongue and Hau. Some less known rappers such as Dialectrix, Mantra & Jewson are definitely not out of their depth lyrically or in terms of their delivery. Overall, this is a great debut album. Recommended for fans of Astronomy Class, (which Chasm belongs to), and Australian hip hop

The album is full of great beats, and some great Aussie MC's - pretty much all of them except Matty B. Solid performances all round and some nice cuts here and there. I'd give it 5 stars if I'd never heard Axis by Pegs.

About Chasm

Comprised of flutist Michael Whipple and guitarist Mark Esakoff, the members of the Long Beach, CA-based instrumental duo Chasm (pronounced kaz'm) first met in 1987. As a youngster, Whipple's family moved around a lot (his father was a military man), and when his father forbade him to learn the drums, he picked up the flute and also taught himself how to play the recorder, keyboards, marimba, and despite his father's misgivings, eventually drums and percussion. Esakoff, on the other hand, picked up guitar at the age of 13, equally inspired by rock and folk, eventually traveling with his instrument throughout America, Europe, and North Africa, before hooking up with Whipple. So far, the duo has issued a pair of albums (best described as a combination of folk, jazz, Latin, and rock) -- a self-titled debut and a sophomore effort, Panorhythmica. ~ Greg Prato
