New Video for Chiddy Bang’s The Opposite of Adults and Gorillaz Remix
I came across Chiddy Bang last year on accident, during one of those Internet k-holes I’ve talked about before, where I was looking for a song in particular and discovered something else that I ended up getting really into. That time I was looking for something to ease my Yelle craving and found myself falling deep down a rabbit hole with Chiddy Bang waiting for me at the bottom with their Yelle-sampled track, “Fresh Like Us.” I had to find more about this Philly hip-hop duo, comprised of rhyme master Chidera Anamege rapping over DJ-Producer Xaphoon Jones’ perfectly remixed indie hits. Soon after, their mixtape “The Swelly Express” fell into my iTunes’ regular rotation.
Passion Pit, Radiohead, MGMT, Sufjan Stevens, Belle and Sebastian have all gotten the Chiddy Bang treatment. I have to say I love these guys! Their spin on some of my all-time favorite tracks bring a whole new vibe to the songs and they just put me in a good mood whenever I listen to them. Check out this hilarious video they just released for “The Opposite of Kids” and their remix of Gorillaz’ “Stylo.” Be sure to pick up their EP which drops on February 22. You can pre-order it here.
Crushin’ on you,
