Ladies and gentlemen, presenting the music of Chandra: a unique mix of funky pop hooks, R&B melodies and hip-hop beats that will drag you to the dancefloor!
When you're a producer who's been brought up with folk, jazz and the Wigan northern soul scene, had an 80s childhood, approached manhood arm-in-arm with Britpop, fronted a rockband for 6 years and then fallen in love with the production of the Neptunes and Timbaland, you tend to be a little bit different from the norm.
Growing up through the 90s meant one thing. If you could play guitar or sing you simply had to be in a band. It was the law. Chandra fronted rockband Circa, a group that eventually went on to release singles that were playlisted on national radio and MTV/VH1 Hits in 2004.World domination wasn’t quite at hand though, and musical differences eventually saw the band drifting apart.During his time with the band Chandra also spent years sound engineering and VJ-ing for bands and producing music and music videos for local pop and rock acts.
The years that followed saw Chandra moving to London and saving enough money to set up his own studio where he started experimenting and fusing together dozens upon dozens of different ideas. You can hear some of the results in the newly release EP ‘Doin’ It Right’. Written, recorded, engineered and produced by Chandra in his bedroom studio, the EP has already provoked critical acclaim from far and wide.
Leading music site OVERPLAY.COM have recently raved about Chandra's debut EP classing it as:
"Fresh, high voltage pop… that comes on like a UK Chris Brown!"
Song Of The Year judges described award-winning song DANCE LIKE YOU WANT ME as:
"An emotional assault on the senses that describes everything sexy about dancing and having a good time".
Chandra is feeling justly proud with the award:
"There's so much fresh talent coming out of London right now and this is yet more proof that we can compete on the same level as US artists".
