After a very successful 2012 centred around his widely revered album This is How We Never Die, Chasm has returned in 2013 with a fresh approach to releasing his music. The Chasm EP series, the first of which is set for release on March 15th this year, will comprise of four separate digital releases, each featuring a different vocal artist.
The collaborations, in true Chasm style, will spotlight artists from his international network including Guilty Simpson (USA), Blak Twang (UK), and our very own Monchichi (AUS), Skryptcha & Rachael Berry (AUS). The first EP from the series Diamond Cuts, features Chasm’s long time collaborators Skryptcha and Rachael Berry.
Chasm first worked alongside Skryptcha producing the Sydney emcee’s debut EP Left to Write. The two then collaborated on Skryptcha’s first LP The Numbers in 2010, which included hit single Get Mine featuringRachael Berry’s velvety vocals on the hook. Berry and Chasm went on to work on new songs together, which unfortunately never saw the light of day. Recently during a studio session for Skryptcha‘s mixtape The Summer, Skryp heard the unfinished tracks and knew he had to rap over them. Thus the EP came together.
Diamond Cuts – polishing up rediscovered gems from the vaults. The first single from Diamond Cuts is ‘Oo La La La’ is an up-tempo, vibing, straight up party number. Featuring an impressive verse from the bilingual Ozi Batla (The Herd), ‘Oo La La La’ is all funk guitars, accented claps, and a signature hook from Berry.
Release Date: 15.03.2013
