FEATURE // Checkers :: Leisure Sports EP

Denver-based producer Checkers just dropped his debut release this week, a four-track EP that solidifies his part in the new DIRTY // CLEAN crew as the member on permanent vacation.


Maybe it’s just the album art (which resembles something familiar) that makes us think of this as chillwave bass — the sunny jazz vibes and the gentle patter of percussion like summer rain on a sidewalk gives Leisure Sports a great warm-weather sound.  There’s influences across the board, but the album is driven by intricate, delicate percussion that sits atop a thick layer of melodic bass.

The song “Leisure Sports” was chosen as a finalist in The Untz Challenge to play Summer Camp,Wakarusa, SONIC BLOOM, and Electric Forest — if you like what you hear, go vote for him!
