A Massive Chad Valley Post

I've been a fan of Chad Valley for some time, so I am always excited when he releases new material.  Recently, he remixed Lana Del Rey's "Born To Die" into a tropical, the-sun-is-about-to-set, I'm-walking-through-the-sand-as-the-sky-turns-blues-and-purples tune.

So who is Chad Valley?  Chad Valley (real name Hugo Manuel) hails from Oxford, England and is one part of British six-piece group Jonquil (who describes themselves as "Paul Simon's take on The Smiths").  He makes balearic lo-fi experimental chill pop. It's like you are standing on the shores of a beach in Ibiza watching the sun set...or something like that (he does list "sunset at Cafe Del Mar as one of his 'influences' on his Facebook page). Chad Valley has released two EP's: Chad Valley EP (2010) and Equatorial Ultravox (2011). The remix of Lana and some Chad Valley tracks are below (with his signature dose of tropcalia!)

Some originals...

Chad Valley - Shapeless
(can you ever 'hear' the beach on this one...)

Chad Valley - Up and Down
(please take me to a beach...)

Chad Valley - Now That's I'm Real (How Does it Feel?)
(on a boat, sailing through the crystal clear blue water as the sun hangs above near the horizon waiting to set...)

Chad Valley - Anything
(get down, get the sun)

Chad Valley - I Want Your Love

Chad Valley - Fast Challenges


Lana Del Rey - Born To Die (Chad Valley Remix)

The Drums - Money (Chad Valley Remix)

And a little Jonquil to whet your appetite...

Jonquil - Mexico

Django Django
