Community Beats is a collection of 18 songs from the finest beat-makers that The Community has to offer. An exploration of ambient sounds, head nodding grooves, dark drones and mysterious synths - this album characterises 'The Community sound'.
At times meditative and at times dark and driving, Community Beats articulates the struggle for innovation and quality in which The Community is constantly engaged. It explores the spaces which individual artists occupy (an idea that is reinforced by album art lovingly crafted by Mathasasquatch) and it also delves into those ideas that unite us all in a group which is driven by the motto of 'independence through collaboration'.
The Community is a self-funded artists and musicians collective based in Perth, Western Australia, with members across the whole continent of Australia.
