Exploring the deep, dubby dark worlds the Copenhagen (via Sacramento) producer has made quite an impression on fans and fellow artists alike for his signature nocturnal production style that lands squarely in between dub's sense of space and R&B's sleek minimalism. Deep sub-frequencies and decaying atmospheres lay the foundation CHLLNGR's melodic, moody tracks utilizing ghostly african rhythms and cavernous pads. CHLLNGR released his debut Haven in 2011 on Green Owl and quickly followed it up with Datter on Time No Place in early 2012.
Over the past year, CHLLNGR has been working on his next full-length for the LA-based Time No Place label. Recorded at the newly built Red Bull Studios in Copenhagen, Borth took a different approach by recording most of the new record at a legitimate studio as opposed to his previous DIY methods. Again, a collaborative effort: the new album features contributions from up-and-coming vocalist JOSIAHWISE IS THE SERPENTWITHFEET, Blaqstarr, Grace Hall of Skin Town, Nikolaj Manuel Vonsild (When Saints Go Machine, Cancer) and the UK based artist DELS. Keeping much CHLLNGR's signature moody starkness, his forthcoming LP strives for brave eclecticism, digging deeper into his future-minded soul music explorations.
