Tachichi "Top Ten" album release (January 25)

posted by Tachichi on Saturday March 2

In the meantime, Tachichi follows up solo album Chico’s ‘90s Project, his exploration of his obsession with 90s pop culture released on Hand’Solo Records in December 2017, with a looser concept and an appeal to a broader audience. Top Ten is a tight ten song album (plus a bonus intro verse) with an eclectic array of songs and concepts, accomplished by reaching out to the best producers Sipset and Canada have to offer in order to find that perfect beat for each idea. The result is some of Tachichi’s best songs to date.

“Q Word” is an epic, fist-pumping anthem pushing perseverance in the face of adversity featuring haunting vocals contributed by Kim D’Ambrosia and a beautiful, evolving beat from fast-rising electronic music duo Pineo & Loeb. “To the Lost” embraces T’s love for R&B with a chill piano and percussion production from Fresh Kils, a hook from Chudi Harris, and Tachichi’s verse a passionate and touching open letter to his recently deceased grandfather. And “Atlantic Time” uses a car chase beat from ChanHays to tell a gritty, time-based story. Plus there’s the big-ass Sipset posse cut “Air Raid” and an ode to fellow Sipset founder Ghettosocks with “Ode 2 Socks”.

Top Ten may not be a collection of his greatest hits, as the name might suggest, but make no mistake that any future greatest hits album from Tachichi will definitely include many of these songs.
