2018 album also available in CD
Chrome Sparks is the solo project of Jeremy Malvin, a Brooklyn transplant from Pittsburgh by way of Ann Arbor. Inspired by a background in classical percussion and an obsession with synthesizers, Malvin creates dazed, melodic beat-centric tunes that loosely hang between down-tempo head nodders and up-tempo club bangers. Fader has described his music as 'form-shifting beats [that] seem to resonate with spaced-out chillers and hyperactive party kids alike.'
His eponymous debut album arrives via Counter Records (a Ninja Tune imprint) boasting a sparkling sound: a euphony of hip hop, house and bright-beamingsynthwork. Following much-tipped EPs on Future Classic (Flume, Chet Faker), his first album was recorded between Malvin’s Brooklyn studio and a secluded upstate cabin and features collaborations with Kllo (Ghostly) and more.
