Words by Natalie Weiner—
Tarrus Riley is going from one-drop to the drop in his latest release “Tun Up The Music,” an EDM-influenced track with Chi Ching Ching from Chimney Records. The track is something of a departure for Riley, best known for his mellow, lilting lover’s rock—just listen to his most recent rocksteady-throwback album Love Situation. For Chi Ching Ching—recent guest on our own LargeUp Sessions and a featured performer at tomorrow night’s bashment with Federation Sound—the club-ready sound is less surprising. Ching’s been on top of the EDM trend for a minute, most recently with his remix of Lil Jon’s “Turn Down For What” (apparently he’s equally adept at turning up and down).
The video starts off with Riley playing hide-and-seek in the forest (with a pretty gyal, naturally), which quickly turns into a very fluorescent forest party. Check it out below, and tell us what you think in the comments. And if you’re in Miami, don’t miss Ching alongside Wayne Wonder, Cham and the rest of the crew.
