My new favourite.. I am totally waiting to see this guy live and to have his album. The EP Thinking in Textures is due out in 2012 and believe me it is eagerly awaited for by lots of us.
This guy Chet Faker is amazing and it has moved me listening to him. It feels like warm honey that is just healing and yummy and moving and awesome.
Who doesn't love "No Diggity?" Maybe those without hearts or souls! Luckily for the rest of us, there's been a development on the 'I like the way you work it' front – a fantastic cover of the Blackstreet-plus-Dre original by Melbourne downtempo electro artist Chet Faker. While most covers nod and pay tribute to a classic, Faker does something more immense and mysterious, completely changing the song's tone towards a sleek, cinematic, sex-in-the-pool sort of vibe. His EP, Thinking In Textures, comes May 22 on Downtown Records._http://rcrdlbl.com/2012/05/01/download_chet_faker_no_diggity_blackstreet_cover_
