The self-reflective sounds of Peruvian-born LA/NY bred A.Chal (Alejandro Chal) is on my radio rotation this week. I first heard the demo for Far From Home on OVO Sound Radio. I love it and wasn’t surprised to discover it was soon to become Zane Lowe’s World Record.
I’ve acquired a taste for trap beats and moody musicians like as Roy Wood$, The Weeknd and River Tiber. So quite naturally, A.Chal’s Far From Home, in which he’s pleading to clean up his act and feeling miles from home, seems quite fitting to add to my moody music collection.
