Proflogik – So Necessary
Machinedrum – What You Wanted 2 Feel (Pixelord Remix)
While Chiddy Bang has undoubtedly failed to maintain the energy they brought with them since hitting the scene in 2009, it’s hard to deny that their approach to hip hop has been anything but innovative. Since building a name for themselves with Opposite of Adults, a fusion of MGMT’s alternative sound blended with the hip-hop production of Bang’s very own Xaphoon Jones, Chiddy Bang has made a surprising comeback with a more developed sound after a few years underground.
Chiddy’s latest release entitled By Your Side, brings together the exoticism of Cocorosie with a traditional hip-hop feel which leaves the listener with an unfamiliar sense of wholesomenesswhen the song is over. Although Coco’s cryptic voice may not initially resonate well with you, the peculiar beauty packed within her hook will grow on you.
As beautiful as the chance encounter of a sewing machine and an umbrella on an operating table.
