On Tuesday we had the pleasure to announce that Cape Town-based production duo Christian Tiger School had signed with New York City's iconic Tommy Boy Entertainment and they'll be releasing their sophomore album through their new label home later in June. Chrome Tapes, which was previously teased as a limited edition cassette back in 2014, sees South African producers Luc Vermeer and Sebastian Zanasi integrate a more scientific whirlwind of techno, house and experimental sounds to their hazy, L.A. beat scene-inspired hip-hop production. "Chrome Tapes is a further exploration of the music we’ve been making over the last year and half," the guys told us over email. "It was really interesting playing around with different tempos, sounds and textures. There’s definitely a more melancholic side to our music that comes out in Chrome Tapes, something that didn’t really feature that much on our first full length."

Today Christian Tiger School shared the very first official release off their forthcoming LP over at Spin. "Chorisolo" is a thumping 6-minute burst of uptempo percussion, glittery effects and a minimal vocal loop. Listen to it below (plus watch the making of the track they created with Bilal and World's Fair for Okayafrica/Okayplayer's Player Xchange series. For more on Chrome Tapes, read our interview with Christian Tiger School's Vermeer and Zanasi here.
