Going through some old things around the place, found this album that i haven’t listened to in at least 3 years which is truly a huge shame. Pasobionic is an Australian producer who has made beats for the likes of many hip hoppers however has only one release of his own. His solo release goes by the name of ‘Empty Beats For Lonley Rappers’ and it graced our ears in 2003.

It’s without a doubt one of my favourite beat tapes ever produced, definitely in the top 5. I’d say it competes both in similarity and awesomeness with Diplo’s ‘Florida’. In fact, i would basically say that this is the more adventurous and far-reaching follow up that Diplo never got around to making. That is before he started producing very average music and decided to remix every fucking thing he came across, i wouldn’t be surprised if he started remixing his food and his house but i digress (i still think you’re alright diplo), Pasobionic destroys the sound in the best way possible. A perfect mix of ambience, melancholy, rugged and gritty edges, aggravation and a constant skip between the past and future that leaves you wondering whether you’re actually listening to something from the present. As for the samples, this is probably the only release i’ve heard where i cannot pinpoint a single one, if that isn’t enough of an incentive to have a listen then i don’t know what is. It’s a humbling and serious piece, i wouldn’t reccomend it for someone who wants to party. I can’t pick a favourite, each track is just as good as the next so here’s a random one. If you like it, please buy it and support local talent.
