Much anticipated debut full-length by Swiss beatmaker Chief. With Collabo Collection, Chief delivers a groundbreaking collection of collaborations, made between 2005 and 2009, that showcase different facets of his genius beatmaking. The majority of the songs are previously unreleased. The album features an A-team list of guests including Moka Only, John Robinson, Kissey Asplund, Dynas, Blu, Co$$, Les Nubians, Just Brea, or Abstract Rude to name but a few.
Chief was born in Lausanne, Switzerland, where he grew up and still lives today. After showing interest in music at an early age and specifically Hip Hop since his early teens, Chief began DJing at the age of 14, and by 21 had started to create his own beats. Countless music genres ranging from Jazz or Neo-Soul to Hip Hop or Electronica can be cited as influences on Chief’s music, yet his productions strongly retain their unique identity.
Over the latest years, Chief supplied beats to a wide range of artists, including gold selling R&B female duo Les Nubians, ex-Swollen Members leader Moka Only, genius rapper Blu, rising star Kissey Asplund, Hip Hop master John Robinson, Dj Spinna’s protÃ©gÃ© Dyans and many more. Chief also entirely produced several albums, such as Are the Groove with Maryland rapper Kay Dee aka K-Skills, and a couple of albums with Brooklyn-based rapper Sene including Garbage Pail Kids.
From downtempo hybrid beats, to atmospheric urban soundscapes or sophisticated soulful beats, the album showcases different moods while retaining Chief’s unique flavour throughout all twenty-one tracks. A must-have release, offering a deeper insight into one of today’s beatmaking growing talents, and a chance to own brand new and exclusive material from the hottest and the most promising urban artists of the moment.
