Since the group was founded in 2010, Chill Bump has proven to be a collaborative endeavor of an entirely new kind. The alliance between Miscellaneous (MC) and Bankal (Beatmaker) was both unique and powerful from the get-go; enriched by the fusion of their respective English and French speaking heritage. The duo first met in high school shortly after Miscellaneous moved to France from the UK, his native country, and by the time they reunited and started creating tracks together they had each grown solid artistic roots; Bankal made a name for himself as a DJ and beatmaker namely at the IDA and DMC championships, and Miscellaneous had already been a touring musician and songwriter for several years, and had trained extensively in performing arts. Their reunion was bound to be explosive.
Chill Bump has created its own universe; a world of lofty, uncluttered and sometimes abrasive beats over which Miscellaneous verbalizes in his native English. As we track the group’s journey from EP to EP we hear and feel a pattern begin to emerge, the assemblage of countless passions and influences. It was their unique spirit that piqued Wax Tailor and C2C’s attention, allowing the duo to open venues for both artists respectively.
