Lovers of Aussie hip hop rejoice! Chance Waters is back with a brand new track, Maybe Tomorrow, showcasing the ever diversifying range of material from this flourishing, local, talent. Having ditched his ‘Phatchance’ moniker on the eve of releasing Infinity, a smouldering precursor to his sophomore album by the same name, Chance Waters has signified his intent to be taken seriously as a major player in the scene.
Last year he performed at capacity crowds throughout his 3 week residency at Sydney’s Oxford Art Factory; recorded tracks with the musically edible Charlie Mayfair and remixed the f@ck out of Gotye’s Somebody that I used to know, proving his music lives up to his mantra.
Maybe Tomorrow is a joyously off beat, piano led, hip hop track which deftly highlights another side of this often macabre artist. The chirpy tune features vocal talents of Lilian Blue and some oh so cynical lyrics that belie the complexity of melody which drives this song forward. Continuing the dream team format which has created much of this artists repertoire of works the song was produced by Adelaide’s One Above: The man responsible for tracks such as Hill Top Hoods’ single I love it, which featured Sia and was a firm favourite on the Walk of Shame airwaves for some weeks.
You can download the single over at the Unearthed site but what’s perhaps most exciting of all is the fact that this Saturday, 12th May, those of you Sydney can catch the man in the flesh at the Kings Cross Hotel, performing at one of the mighty FBi Social gigs that have plugged the gaping hole in Sydney’s live music scene! The night will be an epic journey into the life of one of this country’s promising hip hop artists…. And that my friends is a fact.
People elsewhere can head to the Chance Waters site to catch a gig near you! Be quick though as there ain’t many dates left.
