It is the first time in the history of Australian hip hop that our local artists like Delta, Hau, Solo etc. are sharing tracks with huge international names including (from the US): AG (Showbiz & AG of the pioneering D.I.T.C. Crew), Vast Aire (Def Jux), New Zealand’s Dave Dallas (first artist outside of the US to be signed by New York indie label Duck Down Music Inc.) and many more.

“I think people are really going to appreciate the international aspect.  Chasm’s got some killer Aussie artists collaborating with a nice portion of the world’s best emcees. It’s pretty exciting for Australian hip hop, it means we’ve reached a pretty high standard when legends like Vast Aire and AG are noticing us. Not to mention jumping on a track.”
Pegz, Obese Records CEO

New York, NY- Australian hip hop sensation, Drapht has announced the U.S. release of “The Life Of Riley” on May 8th via The Ayems. The Life Of Riley is the fourth studio album by Drapht and marked him as one of only two Australian artists in 2011 whose album debuted at #1 in the Australian charts. The breakaway single “Rapunzel” appears on the album and has already reached double platinum sales status down under.

Linking up with long time musical collaborator Trials (also from Aussie hip hop outfit, Funkoars) as well as a veritable treasure trove of guest emcees (Nfa, Urthboy, Mantra) outside musicians, producers (M-Phazes) and singers (Abbe May, Simon Cox) The Life Of Riley is one of the most melodic yet genuine approaches to hip hop regardless of geography in recent years. Incorporating a great deal of live instrumentation into the beats as well as Drapht’s own uncanny sense of lyrical hooks, the album traverses through a record collection without boundaries including the almost 60’s psyche-pop of Rapunzel, the dark-dub styling of “Murder Murder” to world music inflected party-rocker “Bali Party” just to name a few.

As an emcee Drapht’s subject matter tends to blend devil-may-care youthful defiance with a deep and very vulnerable introspective side. Speaking on the genesis of Rapunzel, the idea of which carried over from his 2009 theme album Brothers Grimm Drapht says “I was reading over the Grimm fairy tales and the story of Rapunzel jumped out at me perfectly as a metaphor about an ex-girlfriend of mine who was close to my heart but a complete ball-breaker and unable to let her hair down. The lyrics itself were probably some of the easiest to write for the record but the recording process was a complete different story. The 60's surf-rock feel was 30bpm faster than the textbook mid 90’s hip hop sound, so the delivery took a while to get my head around.”
