Chameo – Hey!

This is one of those blow-the-credibility from all that dark techno posts. Chameo (not to be confused with Chromeo) has produced Hey! a track so bouncy house, dumb synth and fun that I simply had to give in and go with it. Free download.

Chameo is a producer from Copenhagen, Denmark. Hey! is an astonishing mix of uplifting synth chords, bouncy beats and hip hop shouts and samples that its artlessness is its strength. In the sun, this sounds like the best thing ever. There’s nothing radical here. But so what. Mind you don’t spill your drink bouncing along to this. Although if it’s rum and ginger that might be for the best.
