Cham x I’m Too Hot

Cham and Dave Kelly do it again on I’m Too Hot! Nice to hear Cham shouting out the UK’s finest Rodigan and Saxon on the tune too.

Cham x Lawless Wednesdays

Here is some live footage of Cham destroying a rave in Kingston this month. It’s not the greatest audio quality but it’s a fun video to watch him tear up the dance.

Fantasy Thrilla x Clip

A power soca version of Cham’s Clip? Yes please! Past #strictlyriddims guest Fantasy Thrilla ups the BPM and frankly makes this more danceable than the originally (Gun Cham isn’t my fave Cham). The video for the original is above, shot in Miami.

O X Money Pull Up

We did a post a little while ago on Cham’s cut on Boom Riddim produced by MadHouse Records but this time it’s his wife O’s time to shine. The video for Money Pull Up came out over the weekend and its visual lives up to its vocal. You can’t go wrong with a party video and this one features O rocking her unique take on dancehall style, a Patra look-a-like, a daggering puppet and some serious wines.

Cham x Sellout

Brand new Cham on Madhouse Records which is probably the best combo in music right now (maybe Ciara and Future is the 2nd). Cham goes in on this beat which features ringtones and nextel chirps but it’s really him that makes it.
Meanwhile his wife O gets on the same riddim and talks up her prowess. It’s great to hear O back on a track as she is a fresh new voice. Big fans of her over here at HDD HQ. You can check out her cut here.
