Hailing from Portugal, Europe, Blastah Beatz has been making noise on the international hip hop scene for a few years now. Having created soundscapes for legends like Kool G Rap, Busta Rhymes and Inspectah Deck to name a few, as well as being a contributing producer on several Billboard charting albums in the past 7 years, Blastah is gearing up to release his debut production album 'Ph.D. in Beatmaking' in October 2016. This young producer has been on a mission. From digging up that sample that no one ever dared to flip to mixing it with the heaviest bass and the hardest drums, Blastah has been looking to hook up the best artists with the beats they deserved. So far, it’s been paying off as he’s building a strong reputation as one of the best foreign up-and-coming producers. Kool G Rap, Busta Rhymes, Tony Yayo, Joe Budden, Papoose, Inspectah Deck, Canibus, AOTP, U-God, Elzhi and Aloe Blacc are just some of the renowned artists who were blessed by Blastah’s production.
And now, Thrice Great Records/Chambermusik is proud to present his first ever full-length album, featuring some of his favorite emcees. "Ph.D. in Beatmaking" is more of a journey than a showcase; traveling through such a variety of styles Blastah has mastered. Make no mistake however, he is at once a Hip-Hop underground purist, creating a canvas that brings out the best in his artists. Featured on "Ph.D." are Cymarshall Law, Eternia, Apani B Fly, Lord Have Mercy, Kool G Rap, Inspectah Deck, General Steele, Cashis, Goretex, and several others. In short, get ready to enjoy a truly solid yet hard, Hip-Hop album.
