A new gem on NYCROPHONE – CHET FAKER! I have to admit that I did not have this Australian electro-soul singer on my radar until my hard working nerdy blog partner in crime Whitney pointed him out to me. Knowing the tough critic that I am his words were “Please tell me we have not featured this guy yet!”. We had not – until now. Thanks Whitney!
Chet Faker has been stirring up the soulful electronic scene with “Thinking In Textures“, winning the Australian Independent Records Awards and “Best Independent Release” at the Rolling Stone Australia Awards for 2012. His debut album “Built on Glass” is set to release this month, so be on the lookout for it! Our featured playlist includes material of his older EP, his upcoming album and of course his popular cover version of Blackstreet’s “No Diggity” which was featured in a 2013 Super Bowl commercial for Beck’s Sapphire. His beautiful voice, dope acoustic performances and great mix of electronic music and soul make Chet another stellar addition to our playlist collections. Pay close attention to Flume & Chet Faker’s “Drop the Game” – it features the sickly talented and legendary dancer Storyboard P.
