For my ongoing quest to provide you with the music you need to get in a summer headspace it would only make sense to get you better equated with Chong X. We touched on him a bit in our feature on EDM artists you would like if you dug Major Lazer. I think it’s in your interest to take a closer look.
Chong X is from Prague in the Czech Republic, which seems like an unlikely place for a dude who makes Latin and Caribbean inspired beats. Chong X however has his roots in the ’90s ragga jungle scene and spent a number of years up until recently in Peru where he was no doubt able to soak in the local culture.
His is my go-to place if I’m looking for a global bass twist on a popular dancehall track or traditional latin song. I would say about 90% of the stuff there is free. I’m like a kid in a candy store where the candy I get is so I can make money drinking free booze and making people lose their shit.
