    A.Chal

    There are sweet spots between hip-hop and R&B, the space between feel-good party jams and sedated chill-out music, between accessible and interesting. A.Chal’s first couple of songs live in these elusive spaces. The Los Angeles-based singer/producer has been working in NY and LA for the past five years, but he's just now starting to roll out his new batch of music. He’s influenced by his Peruvian background and his bi-coastal lifestyle, and if he keeps the quality as high as "Gazi" and "Round Whippin," A. Chal should make a big impact in the coming years.
