Breakout electro inspired hip-hop duo Chiddy Bang, comprised of rapper Chiddy and producer Xaphoon Jones, have sent us an exclusive and inspired playlist featuring their favorite tracks of the moment. Chiddy Bang already released their much buzzed about debut album Breakfast exclusively on the iTunes Store (iTunes.com/ChiddyBang) and will hit retail and digital outlets on February 28th. Additionally, their song “Handclaps & Guitars” will be this week’s FREE iTunes “Single of the Week,” starting today.
In conjunction with the release of Breakfast, Chiddy Bang has linked up with software developer Smule and their MadPad sound mixing application. Smule's MadPad app turns everyday sights and sounds into the ultimate percussive instrument. Remixers can play thousands of premade sets or make their own video soundboard in just minutes. Chiddy Bang have created a number of their own MadPad video sets, one of which they remixed to their single “Ray Charles.” A video featuring the band both recording and performing the MadPad version of “Ray Charles” can be seen exclusively on Chiddy Bang's and Smule's YouTube channels. Users can play with Chiddy Bang's sets by downloading MadPad, which is free this week in the iTunes App store.
