Chimp Beams are releasing the US version of their ambitious second album, Menina, having already released it to critical acclaim in Japan earlier this year. The title track, Menina, is a club hit, with the 12″ EP quickly selling out and causing a ruckus in the record stores. Filled with melodic, harmonic songs, the new full length also has two hip-hop tracks.
It’s been 2 years since NY’s Japanese group Chimp Beams released a milestone album “Vibrato”into the world dub scene in 2004~2005. This electronic dub band will release its second album in Feb. of 2007. As you can hear on the title track “Menina”, they push the melodious and emotional side to the limit rather than their first album’s dark chill out sound. Soft and warm harmonies meet deep underground beats on this historic masterpiece. Though you can definitely call this the world of “Chimp Beams DUB”, they’ll prove you wrong if you think this is just a dub band. Recommended for fans of Electronica, Break Beats, Jazz, Hip Hop and House music as well.
