For every Ciecmate beat that's made it out into the world, there have been scores of others laying in wait, lurking, watching for the right MC. With Chess Sounds Vol.1, Ciecmate has brought his cunning creations out into the light, pairing them with the craftiest slew of MCs you could hope to assemble.
Named after his recently opened production house and recording studio, Chess Sounds features local artists such as the legend Brad Strut, label-mate and fellow Broken Tooth visionary Newsense, Koolism's Hau, host of the Triple J Hip Hop Show, Westline Boomtown murkers Kings Konekted, the irre-pressible Trials of the Funkoars, and that dashing man with the razor tongue, Vents. Also bringing characteristic heat are local MCs Diem, Tornts, Maggot Mouf & Gutz. Joining this impressive line up is boom-bap hero Tame One (Artifacts/Weathermen), heavy-hitting underground mixtape maestro Termanology and one of the last remaining artists to do the New York sound justice, Little Vic.
