While DJing on Toronto’s steadily growing mid-week event circuit, opening for rising stars like Huh What and Where’s Elaquent and LA electronic artist Nosaj Thing, Paul Chin has been quietly growing his stature as a capable, thinking music producer. His work is opaque, and often takes multiple listens to truly capture. Driven for expression across works, Chin has over 40 MP3s posted on his SoundCloud, a stark contrast to the singles-driven landscape he finds himself bunched together with.

For his Talking Drums mixtape, Chin has opted for some drum-heavy, atmospheric, ear-filling production, skating through hip-hop, old and new. It features remixes from Ol' Dirty Bastard and material from Kendrick Lamar, alongside brand new, unreleased material from Paul Chin and his contemporaries.
