One of my fave Mc’s of recent times, I’m shocked that Chimpo didn’t become more of a household name in 2013 but that might change in 2014.
Keep your eye on him.
This is such a great track that is CRYING out for a Zouk Bass refix!
Bass music legend Chimpo’s musical style defies genre boundaries. Both his dj sets and productions see him fuse grime, drum n bass, dubstep, trap, garage, dancehall and hip hop to create a unique sound that never fails to destroy dancefloors. A seasoned DJ, producer and MC, Chimpo’s career has seen him tour the world, find fans in many of his heroes and officially remix legends such as Wu Tang Clan, Zed Bias and Omar.
2012 saw some exciting movements for Chimpo. As part of legendary crews Broke’n’English and the Estate Recordings family, Chimpo was integral in a revolution that saw Manchester labelled by revered music critics as ‘the dance music capital of the UK’ and ‘the most exciting city in the world’. 2012 saw Chimpo release the genre-breaking ‘Blowfish’ which quickly became a favourite of legends such as Goldie, Shy FX and Pendulum. It also saw the release of ‘Drama’ aka ‘Gaza’, a collaboration with Trigga that after some time as a certified anthem in Manchester and around the UK, became an anthem in USA through the sets of Skream and Benga during their tour of the States.
2013 is set to see Chimpo take huge steps in the industry with forthcoming collaborations with Dub Phizix, My Nu Leng and Calibre and tracks signed to Soul:r, Big Dada, Modulations and Tru Thoughts. Right Now it looks like Chimpo is one of the most dangerous animals around!
