CB13 // Trailer

Chik Budo are a formidable prospect that combine the disco and discordant funk of ZE records in their heyday. Picture the infectious grooves of Was (Not Was) alongside the erratic menace of James Chance and the Contortions while Arthur Russell discusses the finer points of Talking Heads.

Performing at a wide range of festivals that include Glastonbury, Dot to Dot and the Camden Crawl, Chik Budo have also supported The Horrors, Little Dragon, Gold Panda, No Wave legend James Chance and proto punk-funk act The Bush Tetras.

CB13 is a limited edition cassette mixtape that opens with the dissonant "Theoretical Safe Hands" and "It Just Gets Better" before veering into the glacial disco of "In This Dream" and ‘Move Meccano Extended’, the minimal electronics of "People I Met" and finally closes with the crunching sax riffs and vocodered voices of "Heat Won't Hurt You".

The mix guides you through a journey of No Wave, New Wave, Post-Punk and Disco with a leftfield pop sensibility that, like the best visionaries, marries the strengths of each genre to allow an undeniably enriching aural sensation.
