Indie Spotlight: Chiddy Bang

Posted in News on July 21, 2010

Chiddy Bang is a Philly-based duo composed of Chiddy (emcee) and Xaphoon Jones (DJ/producer), which combines elements of indie and electronica with some good ol’ fashioned “spitting.” Using samples from artists like MGMT, Passion Pit and even Mary Poppins, Chiddy Bang completely alters the original tracks, turning them into something of their own. While Chiddy’s lyrics touch upon some heavy subjects like politics or conflict in Nigeria (“Sooner Or Later”), they find balance in feel-good jams like the playful “Fresh Like Us” or the triumphant MGMT-copping “Kids.”
