Chams Shares Mind-Bending Cut From New EP
‘Lettre d’Amort’ will drop via Abîme on September 28.
The EP will be the debut release for the Paris-based label and is deeply personal release inspired by a solo journey Chams took across the French Alps a few years ago. The journey instilled in Chams a view that the Alps is a place of beauty and fear, and that nature should be admired from a wary distance. Since then, Chams has attempted to capture and translate this into his work, and Lettre d’Amort is the first released piece.
Musically, the EP is a tense-yet-beautiful collection of deconstructed beats that reference all manner of bass styles, grime, and more experimental pastures. Across the six tracks, bright, translucent melodies compete with dark undertones, creating a haunting bed of sonics.
