Twin brothers Andrew and Brian Chaplin (Locnville or previously LCNVL) have written numerous hits that are instantly memorable and now, after a year spent grafting and building a team in Los Angeles, they are poised to make even more musical memories with their latest body of work, through Warner Music South Africa. Inspired by Justin Bieber’s conquering new sound, the Mad Decent crew’s pioneering and indeed the deep house sound of South Africa that resonates strongly with the duo, they’ve produced their new material alongside passionate up-and-coming talent. The end result is upbeat with a cinematic, tribal feel, giving their hook-filled new material a solid structure and sonic texture to haul their fans, new and old, into 2016. This is truly evident on the new single ‘Grapevine’ – a slice of rolling electro-hop that glitches and twists before dropping into old-school dub and back, underneath their signature matter-of-fact rhyming. ‘Grapevine’ get’s it’s debut on Apple Music and Beats Radio on 12rth February whereafter it will be available on iTunes exclusively. Their performance at South Africa’s Oppikoppi festival in 2013 marked a turning point and showcased a desire to experiment, not only with their songwriting but through their stage presence. Now, through more mature thought, they’re fully conscious about putting a slick, top-notch live show that appeals to a broad audience and is fit for any manner of stages.
By experimenting with varied beats and tones, this multi-platinum selling, award-winning electronic pop duo have expanded upon their musical legacy, which only bodes bright for the future.
