‘Godfather of Chill’ Chris Malinchak has dropped his long awaited debut album Night Work, out now on Ultra Music.
Listen on Spotify
A twelve-track release, Night Work is an exploration into the chilled-out dance music sound that Malinchak has made his own over the past few years. It features no fewer than eight tracks that the New York artist has released as singles, starting with ‘Somebody’, an eclectic blend of soulful rhythms reminiscent of a warm summer night in Ibiza watching the sun go down.
Next up, ‘When The World Stops Turning’ sees Malinchak tap into more of a classic house sound while maintaining the chilled vibe he is synonymous with, ‘Closer Every Day’ is an emotion-drenched ballad featuring the vocals of UK singer-songwriter Stealth, and ‘The Wah Wah Song’ is an infectious dance-pop jam in collaboration with New York artist Autumn Rowe.
Then it’s latest single ‘In My Eyes’, a sunkissed ballad punctuated by the salubrious vocals of long-term collaborator Kiezsa, the groove-laden ‘Cellophane’, which was glowingly described as “whimsical bliss” by Earmilk, the captivating percussion of ‘Pick You Up’ and life-affirming ‘Happiness’.
Elsewhere, LP opener ‘Slow Down’ harnesses a dusty Chicago house vibe to kick off proceedings, ‘Nothing Can Compare’ deftly blends electronic production with organic instrumentation, ‘True Say’ is a Latin-infused, vocal-laced disco heater, while ‘Get Away’ ensures things are closed out on a wistful synth-pop tip.
The contemporary face of chill-out dance music, Chris Malinchak first emerged with 2013 smash ‘So Good To Me’, an underground treasure that crossed over to be a massive pop hit peaking at #2 on the UK singles chart.
He has spent the years since reaching the hearts of fans internationally with his genre-bending blend of jazz, R&B and dance drawing support from tastemakers such as Pete Tong and Adele and performing at Coachella, Creamfields, and the BBC Radio 1 ‘Big Weekend’ in Ibiza. Looking ahead, he is poised to embark on a residency at Elia at Virgin Hotels Las Vegas, with performances lined up for July 11th, August 15th, and October 10th.
Chris Malinchak’s debut album represents a career milestone for one of the 21st century’s defining electronic artists.
