Chad Valley is the alias of British producer Hugo Manuel. This week sees the release of his Balearic pop drenched debut album, Young Hunger.
Young Hunger boasts contributions from musical heavyweights such as Glasser, El Perro Del Mar, Active Child, T.E.E.D and Twin Shadow. The 1990s influenced electro is already on high rotation.
The multi-instrumentalist/songwriter started making music from his bedroom over six years ago in Oxford before releasing two records via alternative, tropical-pop project Jonquil. Shortly after the release of their second album, Hugo went back to recording as a solo artist, thus giving birth to Chad Valley.
Young Hunger was released yesterday via Cascine.
