Pikachunes – Jazz student turned bedroom producer and Lil’ Chief’s newest signing.
There’s something charming about a scrawny white guy occupying a stage with nothing more than his drum-machine and laptop, but Pikachunes more than compensates for his physical presence with the grooving hypnotism of his music and in-between song charismatics. Stripped back to bare essentials, a typical track features one or two synths, a 70′s analog bass line, and a series of reverberated vocal harmonies, all driven by an atypical disco beat. – no unnecessary frills. It’s this simplicity that makes Pikachunes so appealing. However like all Lil’ Chief releases, a strong pop sensibility remains.
