EPISODE FOURTEEN - CHUNKY
Chunky is a proud Mancunian with roots in Zimbabwe (having relocated from there as a child) which may explain such a worldly, open-minded, outlook on life. Onstage, this translates into a rare ability to work any crowd into a frenzy, whilst handling everything from the latest, bass-heavy cuts to live jazz with consummate ease. In the musical metropolis that is Manchester, Chunky has long been the hardest working MC/DJ/PRODUCER on the circuit. Performing alongside the many itinerant ‘A-Listers’ passing through the city each week soon brought him to the attention of TRUE TIGER, LOEFAH, PEARSON SOUND and many more. Since then, Chunky’s stomping grounds have been ever-expanding and he is now resident MC for SWAMP 81, TRUE TIGER and HESSLE AUDIO, a side of which has made him one of FABRIC’s most frequent performers.
