Chams Shares Sparse But Emphatic ‘Tourment Chantant’

His debut album 'L'Âme agit' is incoming...

French producer Chams has shared his new cut 'Tourment Chantant' – tune in now.

The electronic musician is carving out his own lane, with Chams re-contextualising grime tropes while forging something fresh.

Helping to steer the French label Abîme, his debut album 'L'Âme agit' is incoming.

Out shortly, 'L'Âme agit' stretches between influences, with its pristine audio recalling German techno.

New track 'Tourment Chantant' airs through Clash, and its muscular, extremely direct approach is shot through with a personal edge.

The French language vocal comes from a place of explicit emotion, with Chams using the track as a means to expunge himself from darker feelings.

He comments:

“I made this track to try and exorcise my often overwhelming inner rage and passion… It ended up as a statement going back and fourth between the affection and the aversion I have for others and myself.”

Tune in now.
