PREMIERE: CHANJE – RESPECT
A prominent name on the live Sydney emcee circuit CHÁNJE has been seen on the mic alongside the likes of Lil Wayne, Stormyz & TYGA. A full-of-life party starter, the charismatic 28-year old teased us last year with his first official offering ‘Now U Know’ but is back even stronger in 2020 with new single “Respect”.
It’s been a journey for the recording artist (real name Kwame Agyeman) to get to this point. Falling foul to the temptations and pitfalls that the spotlight on stage can bring, he was forced to take time away to reflect and refocus, and now enters his next chapter with perfect clarity.
The new single “Respect” is a statement. He might not have it yet, but he will get it. On talent alone. With confident street vernacular, clever wordplay and a deep running narrative of overcoming, CHÁNJE is standing out from the crowd with the precision of his artistry. There’s elements of Dom Kennedy or Dizzy Wright in CHÁNJE’s effortless delivery. He sits in a tight pocket over classic bass-infused, boom bap production from Wax Ecstatic, storytelling about his unique road to this point, and his pending glow up.
“I don’t talk shit in any of my tracks. Everything I experience in my life you can hear through my music… I want to make timeless music that people in twenty years will still be able to listen to and bump their head or feel a positive way about it.
