Chillwave, Electronic, Fav Tracks, Missed in 2011

Chad Valley

0 Comments 12 December 2011

This one could be a missed in 2010, Chad Valley definitely should have been posted here a long time ago.  But like I said things happen.  In addition to being a part of indie rock outfit , Oxford based musician Hugo Manuel also records under the name .  Manuel released the EP Equatorial Ultravox earlier this year to great reviews.  The second effort of the bedroom production project is both subdued and huge at once.  It would be easy to label it chillwave and move on, but where many artists of the genre rely on haze for their sound Manuel uses it to merely loft his hook-driven tracks higher and higher.  Listen to standouts from Equatorial Ultravox “Now That I’m Real (How Does It Feel)” and “Fast Challenges” and his recent remix of The Drums.
