Chad Valley制作电子乐的才艺高超,他的作品华丽而忧郁……是对年轻人希望与梦想的杰出颂歌。


[Chad Valley] has a brilliant way with lush, melancholic electronica…[writing] soaring paeans toyouthful hopes and dreams.


– The Guardian



Chad Valley 是Hugo Manuel的个人项目。Manuel是独立民谣乐队Jonquil的首脑,也是一帮在Oxford,由几支意趣相投的乐队和艺术家组成的 Blessing Force圈子里的灵魂人物,他们当中还包括Jonquil前成员Trophy Wife。在Chad Valley——一个与Blessing Force目的极为不同的乐队里,Manuel放下Jonquil的吉他和多重节奏,拾起了一个以轻快低音为主的风格。充满了渴望和情意的歌词,配上钟声 似的合成器旋律,深深吸引着那些希望夏日会比较漫长的乐迷。

 


Manuel为了音乐而放弃了继承颜料制作的家业。他在Jonquil的七年多经验给了他时间和空间去培养自己的作曲和制作修养。Chad Valley的风格吸收了The Dream的R&B形式,同时在打击乐上绝对少不了Studio和The Tough Alliance的Scandinavian Balearic。Manuel还开始建立自己作为Remix音乐人的知名度,把Oxford乐队Foals和Fixers,还有意大利低保真大师 Banjo or Freakout的歌曲制作成夸张的舞曲版本。

 


Chad Valley一度被视为英国的Washed Out——一支美国Chillwave乐队。Manuel在2010年底于Cascine唱片推出首张EP,成功慑服乐评。随后的夏季与秋季巡演也证明到 他的表演功底。Manuel的歌喉充满自信和完美的音准,彻底推翻Chad Valley只是一个睡房录音项目的这个说法。

Sunday, April 29 (holiday) -- Split Works presents: CHAD VALLEY (live)




After winter, the sounds of spring.


In April 2018, we’re delighted to welcome back Chad Valley to China: the perfect soundtrack to melting frost and tangerine skies.


The acclaimed UK songwriter writes swoony solo electro-pop, with a pulsing, danceable core. He’ll be conjuring warm dreamscapes at a special show in Beijing: Dada, Sunday April 29. Cuddle up for an intimate evening filled with visions of sunny shores and brighter tomorrows.


Chad Valley is the solo electro-pop project of Oxford’s Hugo Manuel, formerly of the band Jonquil. His music is triumphant in sound and rich in construct -- often dreamy, introspective and R&B-inspired. His music is 80s pop meets 60s folk, with both given a shimmery modern

electronic makeover.


A product of Oxford’s prolific creative community, Chad Valley has a catalogue that spans three studio releases -- 2010’s self-titled debut EP which was a bedroom exploration in swirling synths and sunburnt melodies. 2011’s Equatorial Ultravox expanded that recipe, giving his downtempo productions a deci dedly more pop-leaning twist. ‘Shell Suite’, off that album, was used in the movie Warm Bodies, leading to a string of key touring slots supporting the likes of Active Child, Chvrches, Erasure, Friendly Fires and Passion Pit. He toured China that year for Split Works’ fifth anniversary celebrations.


In 2018, Chad is releasing his third album: Imaginary Music. We’ve only been treated to snippets so far, but if those (and his recent live shows) are any indication, we’re in for another luxuriant serving of nostalgia-drenched reverie.
