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 second of which will be released on June 14th, comprises 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).
Entitled Smoking Aces, the second instalment from the EP series features rising star and triple j Unearthed feature artist Monchichi. With a mish-mash of production styles on offer, Smoking Aces switches between reggae samples, synth leads, and boom bap beats.
Chasm first encountered the Sydney-based emcee when Monchichi supported the legendary Smoke DZA live. Impressed, Chasm checked out Chi’s work with Coloured Noyz, before inviting him to join forces on what would become the second instalment in the EP series, Smoking Aces.
