Trax- Chakita, “Sun Spot”

0 Comments 20 January 2015

Trax highlights the songs that need to be in your rotation.


By Daniel Barron


For our latest edition of Trax, we’re shining a light on LA electronic duo Chakita. Made up of Tony Denove and Max Transue, Chakita crafts an immersive collage of sounds through lush strings, resonant melodies, and magnetic beats. It’s a forest to lose yourself in and should appeal to those who appreciate the sonic textures of Four Tet and Gold Panda.


A bit of info about their latest release:

Influenced by a tradition of composers and songwriters pushing sonic boundaries, Chakita has dedicated themselves to crafting music brimming with intricate subtlety and lasting integrity. Their new self-titled EP will be released in four parts, each with 2 tracks. Challenged with overcoming obstacles of distance, each part of the EP was written and recorded during a different stage of the bands’ relocation to LA. Through the tumultuous period the group emerged even stronger and more committed to their craft.  Fresh off the heels of their California tour, Chakita will release the new tracks “Doubt” and “Sun Spots” through Verdant Sound Records.


You can listen to “Sun Spots” below, and purchase both tracks when they release on February 3rd. A handmade version of the complete EP containing all eight tracks is currently available at their live shows and for a limited time on their Bandcamp.
