Chet Faker
Thinking in textures
[Opulent Records]

From the same label that brought you Local Natives, Grouplove, and Beirut in the United Kingdom, Chess Club Records is beyond stoked to have added Chet Faker and his new Thinking in textures EP to their roster. The 7 song release is full of mellow jams carefully crafted for the every music lovers’ enjoyment.

Chet Faker busted out on the scene with his cover of Blackstreet hit “No Diggity” because of its loungy feel and intimate vocals. His follow up EP is full of more of the same with R&B influenced beats, sampled overtones, and a grizzly voice that is unmistakably unique.

Thinking in textures stays entirely true to its name since Faker decides to layer tracks on top of tracks and build his own beats on top of those, making a stew of sound that is still clean and vibey. Though released in the US on relatively unknown record label Opulent Records, you can bet that Faker will receive quite the attention abroad because of the backing from Chess Club Records.
