I was huge on UK producer Russ Chimes last year but over the last few months he’s managed to fall off my radar… until now. As a producer of funky, sexy House music, he’s managed to keep my interest because of his unique sound, which many say is similar to Madeon’s. Most people don’t know, however, that Russ Chimes has been doing this long before Madeon but Madeon has happened to rise above Chimes in terms of popularity. Songs like “Tonic” and Chimes’ remix of Ellie Goulding’s “Starry Eyed” are favorites of mine and they’re reasons I keep coming back for more.
“Back 2 You” was released 10 days ago on Positiva records and you can grab it on Beatport if you like what you hear (chances are you will). It’s what I consider to be a chilled-out House track, with some fat 80s-esque synths and sexy female vocals singing “Back to you”. The production value is through the roof as always with Chimes productions and this one reminds me of something you might hear in the movie Drive (see it if you haven’t already). Included for your listening pleasure are some other Chimes tracks that I think you will surely like. There is a music video but it can’t be watched in the States for some reason, but you can see a clip of it below.
