Straight out of Oxford this fine bloke come, his name is Chad Valley, or actually his real name is Hugo Manuel and he's also a part of the Oxford band Jonquil.
I discovered Chad Valley via cool Paris-based label of Maman Records when we were discussing things about the nice pop-duo Kisses. They're on the same label you see. Chad Valley make these fine melodies that just keep you hooked, smooth 80s influenced dream pop for today. Wonderful music for your wonderful ears!
Here are some goodies from the latest releases on Maman Records. Love that Collateral remix:
Chad Valley - Up and Down (Collateral Remix)
Chad Valley - Portuguese Solid Summer
Chad Valley - Ensoniq Funk
