Chicken George

The Soundwave electronic music festival in Vancouver Island, B.C, is celebrating it’s 10th anniversary this weekend, and to help commemorate the event, Austin’s Chicken George has put together the “Soundwave 10-Year Anniversary ‘Jazztronica’ Mix.” Chicken refers to his style as “Jazztronica,” which could very loosely be described as an amalgamation of funk, soul, hip-hop, jazz, reggae, electronic, and disco, although really, it should just be classified as Really Really Good Music. His sets aren’t confined to any one sound. He just puts together quality shit. If you listen, you’ll understand:
