One of the most exciting musicians on the West Coast electronic Hip Hop scene doesn't "play" a laptop and has never released an album under his own name. Even though he just signed to avant dance imprint Wagon Repair, Jules Chaz isn't really so new to them either. In fact, homegrown jazz percussionist turned Hip Hop producer Jules Chaz has been buzzing around the label's ear and gigging in British Columbia for the last 15 years in various Latin, jazz and reggae bands and supporting the extended Cobblestone Jazz posse.
In 2010, Jules Chaz at last releases his eagerly anticipated debut, Toppings, under his own name. "The album is a compilation of the best of what I've done in the last three years plus new stuff. These are the cream of the crop from those sessions," Chaz promises–and most importantly, delivers.
