Clash DJ Mix – Chams

A wonderfully scenic selection of lucid electronics...

French producer Chams grew up – almost literally – in the shadow of the alps.

The region helped shape his imagination, and a long-standing fascination with the area sparked a lengthy one man journey through the mountainous climes.

He emerged a changed man. The sheer scale of nature helped vastly reconfigure the way he approached music, leading to a great appreciation of both size and scale.

Energised, he has been working furiously, with new EP 'Lettre d’Amort' having deep roots in this transcendental experience.

Beauty experienced through awe, it's a wonderful collection of material, the subtle shifts in dynamic lending itself to what could – in the loosest possible – be termed system music.

Here, Chams has pieced together a new mix, containing key touchstones for his own music as well as a few pointers for where he might go next.

It makes for fascinating listening – ranging from Kuedo and Burial through to U-ziq, with a dash of Chams' own material as well.
