Cinnamon Chasers is the electro/nu-disco moniker of producer Russ Davies, described by Juno as "a fusion of Aeroplane, Friendly Fires, Kris Menace and Alan Braxe, with a dash of Vangelis and Jean Michel Jarre thrown in."
Created as a platform for Russ to explore his lifelong interest for classic synthesizers, retro electro and nu-disco, all fused with a modern and emotional feel and aesthetic. This summer Cinnamon Chasers releases a series of new singles, which are as diverse and varied as you would expect from such a prolific producer, featuring a myriad of dreamwave soundscapes, hyper-spaced beats, analogue basslines, cut-up vocodas and energized melodies.
Cinnamon Chasers has strong musical roots and cites early pioneers like Giorgio Moroder, Vangelis, Jean-Micheal Jarre, and KLF as key influences and leading to modern talent such as Alan Braxe, Rex The Dog, Junior Boys…Rather than create dark and moody dance music Cinnamon Chasers aspires to create melodic and authentic timeless music that has an honest heart, and good intentions. Cinnamon Chasers achieves this with a perfect blend of crisp electronics, pop based song structure and melodies, and an Indie feel.
