Dazed's Northern bassline documentary Bass Up North premieres tonight at midnight on Channel 4 (see the trailer here), the second episode in series two of Music Nation. To mark the occasion, we're celebrating all things with a project crafted by music legend Chimpo, premiering here exclusively on Dazed.
Record producer, DJ and MC Chimpo grew up in the urban suburbs of Manchester as a music-obsessed kid whose aural fixation began by stealing his mum’s compilation discs. Proud of his Northern roots, the multidisciplinary is a breaker of boundaries, fusing a multitude of genres – grime, drum ’n‘ bass, dubstep, garage, dancehall and hip-hop – to produce a playful collision of unique sounds. Here, he’s crafted Monkey Teef under Toddla T’s label Girls Music, who are heading up its release. Get ready to break some floorboards.
