Chiddy Bang – The Opposite of Adults/ Truth/ All Things Go
In brief: A Philly-based duo comprised of Chiddy (Proto,19, MC) and Xaphoon Jones (Noah, 19, DJ/producer) who “combine elements of indie and electronica with some good ole fashioned spitting” (so they say). What this translates as is popular indie tunes, mucked around with a bit, with some likeable radio-friendly rapping over the top. It’s silly, it’s dumb, but hey, it’s fun.
They say: They describe themselves as “kings of the basement party jam”
Fact: The Opposite of Adults is the lead track on an upcoming EP, and the one that’s been kicking around for ages, and is based on MGMT’s Kids. Truth is a Passion Pit thing, and the actually rather cute All Things Go is (guessed yet?) Sufjan Stevens’ Chicago.
Best Bit: In the Kids refit – ‘Somebody tell Roth that I don’t love college’ probably swings it.
You can stream the full EP over on MySpace.
