Chimpo: HIA (Stream)

New music from Manchester, as Chimpo releases his first solo LP on his recently established Box N Lock label. In true Chimpo style, HIA is an eclectic blend of styles, with the overarching electronic vibe complemented with bursts of live instrumentation.

There are features too, including the aforementioned Rolla verse, plus appearances from DRS, Chunky and Slay. There is a stream available below and head to the label’s Bandcamp to cop a download.
