EP Release: Chippy Nonstop – #finallyverified
Electrotrap Firecracker Releases Boisterous EP Featuring Kitty, Bukkweat Bill; Available Now On iTunes
Critical Praise for Chippy Nonstop:
“Upon first listen, it might be easy to dismiss the internet-obsessed Nanda’s debut offering #GLOBALSCHOOLOFTWERK as frivolous hipster party rap. Upon closer inspection idiosyncracies emerge: seething Hindi rhymes, crunchy dance beats, and a hyphy-inspired energy that help underscore Nanda’s unusual inspirations.” – FLAUNT Magazine
“She’s provocative, demanding of attention, while maintaining the casual-fun style of your old neighborhood crew. You can’t help but follow her bopping head and twerking booty for fear you might blink and miss the next step.” – San Francisco Bay Guardian
The Oakland-based rapper Chippy Nonstop is incredibly easy to like and a surefire good time, but she’s far more than a pretty party girl with a great Twitter. She has great stamina and an ear for interesting sounds you can also bounce your butt to.– Interview Magazine
Bombastic force Chippy Nonstop has let loose her 5-track EP #finallyverified, which is available now on iTunes. Looking back, Chippy is proud of how the project came together: “I’m progressing more and more from here. I’m excited for everyone to hear the progression of my sound, which has happened even while staying in my own lane.” With total control over her creative process, Chippy is working in the manner that is most fruitful for her and using the tools around her, such as the amazing .GIF matching game that unlocks the track “Pimpin’ Season” and previews snapshots from the track’s upcoming video.
She explains this loose and free approach to creation, musing, “At first I had a certain idea in my head for the EP, but that’s really not a good way for me to work. I work very organically. I go into the studio and I make the beat with the producer as I feel it in the moment. Having preconceived ideas of what I want always get me in trouble. It was hard for me to let go of what I wanted it to sound like, versus how it’s actually going to turn out. Now that I think about it, I’m so glad I just let it happen naturally, rather than forcing a sound that wasn’t me.” This authenticity shines through across the project, which features collaborations with Kitty, Bukkweat Bill, and others. Chippy rocked the stage last night as part of the Red Bull Sound Select show at DROM in New York City alongside Bridget Kelly and others.
