New Release: CHOONGUM – Fantasy EP

August 9, 2012

It’s no secret that we’re big fans of the indie-electronic DIY movement that has been so prominent in the music scene over the last few years and it’s also no secret that we’re big fans of California’s CHOONGUM; an artist that has certainly helped to define a genre.

Recently he dropped the Fantasy EP on the masses and this might just be our favourite release of his to date. CHOONGUM describes the album as a “journey through summery vibes and lush soundscapes” and we couldn’t agree more. Have a listen below if you know what’s good for you.

And, while you’re at it, be sure to check out his recent SUMMER OF HAZE remix – it’s been on serious repeat over here at The iM.
