Chimpo is an absolute musical genius. Three jungle “relicks”, from Ella Mai, Rygin King, and Amira respectively, that are so fresh you’d think they were dropped in 1994. To be able to take three very disparate original tracks and craft resonating, classic jungle out of them is just such an impressive skill. It is a […]
What’s this? Manchester jungle vibes with slick piano work from Chimpo, DRS, Slay, and Ragoloco? Yes, please. An easy Tune of the Day.
G’warn Chimpo! He’s got a new single out on Box’N’Lock called 1996 and a mix to promote the new choon. Then there’s this mix he did for DnB Arena too which is FIRE.
Chimpo is a maniac. A lovable one, but a maniac none-the-less. I’d like to party with him.
A lot of best-of lists suffer from terrible recency bias, including mine. I’m going to try and stay away from it for 2015, but with so much fantastic music being released every week it’s a tough ask. My criteria for the list are: Does it have repeat playability? Does it trigger an emotional or physical […]
A new Chimpo EP, Backslang always means a unique blend of bass music styles, heavy beats, lyrical wit….and maybe some monkey symbolism. He hits on all of those points with Backslang. I especially love Sneaky Cheeky…so good. You can listen to all four tracks and buy the EP HERE.
It’s Saturday night at 11:44pm and I’m jamming the fuck out of this 18 day old Fixate mix for Radio1. Essentially ever tune on the mix by Chimpo is killing it, especially Haymaker and Who Run Tingz. Fixate’s mix is flawless and it’s just…fucking hell. Now if I could just get a download of the […]
I’ve already gone off my head about the new Fracture and Chimpo EP on Metalheadz, now they’ve done a “slow motion” mixtape for Fact Mag’s next offering. It’s next level chopped and screwed bass music. You can read all the relevant info on the mix and why they made it over at Fact Mag. Thanks […]
Fox just released his solo debut, the Shiddleywiddleyskangdangdiddleywoi EP (that’s a mouthful),on Estate Recordings with Chimpo supplying the beats. You might know Fox best for his work with My Nu Leng on the massive Masterplan and his turn on Claude Von Stroke’s Oakland Rope. However, he’s LONG been a staple of the Manchester MC community…maybe […]
Just a preview of the bass line from Fracture and Chimpo’s From Early (out now on Metalheadz) grabbed my brain and gave it a good shake. I had to hear the whole fucking thing, but alas, I couldn’t until it was released today. Now I own a copy and and I’ve already smashed down my […]
