This is a gem from the back catalog vaults of our partner label, Ooohh! That's Heavy. A few remaining copies available here temporarily in case you missed it.
In 2011 with Factor and the Chandeliers, Factor Chandelier builds upon his already vast repertoire and creates his first sample-free fully instrumental EP. Working with session musicians, including long time collaborators bassist Enver Hampton and Canadian Pop Sensation Gregory Pepper - as well as natural field recordings - he experiments with a wide array of genres within just eight cohesive tracks.
It's a far cry from a traditional Hip Hop record, or an instrumental Hip Hop record for that matter. Exploring facets of 80's era R&B, Upbeat dance and Shoegaze, it elicits a range of emotions, all enveloped with a solid head-nodding groove. Although Factor's distinct dusty breaks are still the driving force, the wide variety of original source material enables Factor to play the line between late night dance party and chill-out session.
