Phatchance is dead, long live Chance Waters. After more than five years actively touring the country and releasing music under the moniker Phatchance – Sydney hip-hop artist Chance Waters has decided to lose the alias and return to his given name on the eve of the release of the lead single and title track to his impending follow up album Infinity.
His new single is produced by Adelaide artist-to-watch One Above who recently produced The Hilltop Hoods #1 Platinum selling single I Love It feat. Sia – on track to become the highest selling Australian Hip-Hop single of all time. Infinity follows in the wake of his glowingly received debut album Inkstains which saw the solo artist crowned a triple j unearthed, Music NSW, SBA Music and Myspace.com featured artist, and on the back of two years spent heavily touring, including two national headline tours and support duties for international heavy-weights such as Method Man & Redman, DJ Premier and The Beatnuts, as well as a score of local mainstays including Bliss N Eso, The Funkoars, Drapht, 360 & Pez and Pegz.
The single hits iTunes later this month, but for now have an ogle and grab Chance’s free mixtape Approaching Infinity – the final release under his old moniker, here
