K Chico released his debut album "When I Was Young" in 2006 on the Teichmann- Brothers' "Festplatten" label. The release quickly found its way into the playlists of Electro luminaries such as GusGus, Ellen Alien, Chloe, Wighnomy Brothers, Munk etc. This in turn set off a chain of releases on Forcetracks, Rundlauf and the Bar25 label. As his touring schedule started to thicken and his career properly took off, K Chico just walked away from it all.
Now - 5 years later - he is back with "Burn" - the first track from his new album, which will be released later on this year. The song comes with a visually intense music video produced and directed by the man himself. The production is based on the morphing effect and required hundreds of unique stills. The famous Champagne producers "Bollinger," who normally only sponsor James Bond movies, liked the test shots so much that they donated entire cases of their product to the crew. K Chico is back!
Since time traveling became public and effordable, the chance of seeing Kchico playing live is constantly growing. Coming from the future, he is playing the blues of an old man singing the songs he wrote during his time in Berlin back then - which is actually right now.
This old man definitely found a sound of his own. Sometimes dry, rough and direct, sometimes warm and colorful. But its all held together by the only thing that’s left to an old man who has already lived his life - Kchico sings the blues like you never heard it before.
If you are lucky enough to catch him playing live, you will hear the blues wrapped up into a massive sound that grabs you and makes you dance. Driving guitar riffs, powerful drums and huge bass lines.
