Sometimes (rarely) we take the lazy route and quote someone’s bio. They always make it sound better anyway. Before I do that let me just put my two cents in, I’m interested in hearing more from Chesca and they really hand-picked the collaborators well. Read on…
“Royalty” is the self-titled debut EP from London-based production duo Chesca and Elliott Yorke released on fledgling independent label, Five Easy Pieces. Hailing from Southern Italy Chesca has been a feature on the London boogie-funk circuit since her arrival in 2007. Before that she spent four years in LA where she made waves playing at The Low End Theory alongside Flying Lotus and releasing two EPs via Alphapup Records. Here she teams up Elliott Yorke, a London based producer of similar influence, aiming to explore the future soundscapes of modern electro-boogie.
Heavily influenced by the analogue synth-based musings of boogie-funk and the new beat generation scene, the “Royalty EP” joins the two making a new contribution to the future funk sound championed by Stones Throw’s Dam-Funk and featuring artists such as Onra, Krystal Klear and AD Bourke.”
