‘the musical equivalent of an oil spill’
In terms of lo-fi R&B, Peruvian Artist A.Chal isn’t short on competition. What sets him ahead of the rest though is his swish production skills. Although most notable so far for his remixes of a range of tracks from Drake to Radiohead, his new EP is promising to offer a fuller picture of his ability.
A lot of artists claim that their music is dark, but not many deliver the musical equivalent of an oil spill. There are similarities you could draw between A.Chal and his contemporaries but there’s also the hint of Burial and Massive Attack that makes this release so intriguing.
If he isn’t already on your radar then get ready to hear a lot more about him. Don’t say we didn’t give you a heads up.
Listen to ‘On N On’ from the forthcoming Ballroom Riots EP, released February 19th.
