The View From Here #4: Mathas

Tuesday 3rd February / posted by Chris Wheeldon

RTRFM's The View From Here film series continues, with episode four in the twelve-part series providing a platform for the intelligent hip-hop and skilful wordsmithery of local emcee Tom Mathieson, aka Mathas.

Mathas' sound marks a new, divergent breed of Australian hip-hop, blending inventive beats with introspective lyricism and well-paced, emotional delivery.

Mathas is not afraid to tackle difficult subject matter, and he masterfully peppers his observations with humour, honesty and refreshing insight.

Filmed in RTRFM's Studio A, The View From Here: Episode Four sees Mathas perform five tracks live, cocktail in hand. Mathas' new album, Armwrestling Atlas, is due to come out later this year.
