chet faker

My current musical obsession.

A bearded beatsmith from Melbourne.

Nicholas James Murphy aka Chet Faker.

I read somewhere that Chet’s songs sound like he’s crushed up some valium and sprinkled it on his morning toast…it’s definitely music for a chillout session.

And his debut; a cover of Blackstreet’s hit No Diggity makes 90’s hiphop cool again! But it’s his debut EP Thinking in Textures” that has the most beautiful original mixes, proves that the 23 year old has a great career ahead of him.

It’s a musical mixed bag of night time, jazz infused, laid back, down beat, electro post-dubstep. Brilliant!

    1. I know he’s completely different, but listening to him lately reminded me of The Avalanches. I’ve been digging through my CDs to find my album circa 1998! I need to listen to The Avalanches!
