A few months ago we were reading about Chiddy Bang and their (excellent, it turns out) mixtape, The Swelly Express. Names were flying about like Passion Pit and Sufjan Stevens and MGMT in relation to samples that they'd used and we thought to ourselves, "this rap combo sound really rather interesting, we must remember to do something about them on the blog". You know what? We forgot. So, once again it looks like we're blindly following the leaders now that they're signed to a major and getting airplay on Radio 1, etc. We were there at the start and now look at us. We look like chumps.
Either way, this is their new single, entitled 'Opposite of Adults'. It's built around the riff from MGMT's 'Kids' (hence the title) and is, in the parlance of the youth, a gold-plated banger.
OK, so it's not exactly an assault on your brain cells, but it's massive, dumb fun from start to finish. The single also features two tracks not on the mixtape, the brooding 'Chiddy Freestyle' and the funky 'Sooner Or Later'. We suggest you download it when it's released on the 22nd February.
For now though, you can download the mixtape from here and their myspace is here
