Chymamusique – Gift Of Sound
With a background as a jazz pianist it’s little wonder Chymamusique’s debut album is soaked in smooth chords and twinkling harmonies. It also melodically slays on the dancefloor.
Featuring collaborations with Brian Temba and Soulstar and Chymamusique’s usual lush production, ‘Gift of Sound’ is just that: a gift. It comes on the heels of much success for the young Polokwane producer: after starting to produce in the mid-2000s he won a trio of remix competitions (for Soulcandi, Blackwhole ENT and Castle Lite), had tracks included on numerous compilations (including ‘House Afrika Sessions’ (volumes 2, 3 and 4) and Kanunu’s ‘Soul Mediation’ and he collaborated with DJ Fresh.
He’s also worked with the likes of Kaylow, Rona Ray, John Lundun, CannonSoul and Afrique Essence, remixed Darque & Reelsoul, Fistaz Mixwell ft. Mello Soul and the massive Mi Casa, whilst as a DJ he’s shared stages with the likes of Vinny Da Vincy, Glen Lewis, QB Smith, Charles Webster and Atjazz. If any artist is perfectly poised to hit the big time it’s Chymamusique, and this House Afrika release should do the trick.
Drenched in deep, sweeping atmospherics, glittering keys, soulful vocals and more than enough bass propulsion, ‘Gift of Sound’ should take Chymamusique out of the realms of underground respect and onto the world dance stage – an essential release.
