CHAKI the galactic funk wizard is often talked about in shrouded tales of his phosphorescent appearance, face-melting electro funk, and cosmic origin story.
To witness a Chaki live show is nothing short of a religious service channeling the gods of funk and punk from all sectors of the galaxy, interspersed with glitching beta waves of long-lost commercials and tv themes.
Chaki has brought his dynamic stage show to festivals such as Noise Pop and The Offbeat Fest. This funky alien has gained a cult-like following over the past few years, playing shows with like-minded weirdos Shannon and the Clams, El Vez, Peelander Z, Bob Log III, Captured By Robots, The Space Lady, and Flipper.
The Water is CHAKI's vinyl debut and destined to become a staple in every DJ’s record crate!
The Water was written, performed and produced by Chaki, recorded at El Studio in San Francisco by Phil Becker (Big Business), mastered by Skot Brown (The Phantom Limbs, ESSES) and features contributions by Chris Pinnick (Chicago), Warren Hugel (3 Leafs, MUSK, Earth Girl Helen Brown), Lars Nylander (Skankin' Pickle, The Boars) and Phil Becker (Pins Of Light, Terry Gross Band).
