Chippy Nonstop (@chippy_nonstop) – #FinallyVerified [EP]
Bombastic force Chippy Nonstop let loose her 5-track EP #finallyverified, which is available now on iTunes. Looking back, Chippy is proud of how the project came together: “I’m progressing more and more from here. I’m excited for everyone to hear the progression of my sound, which has happened even while staying in my own lane.” With total creative control over the creative process, Chippy is working in the manner that is most fruitful for her and using the tools around her, such as the amazing .GIF matching game that unlocks the track “Pimpin’ Season” and previews snapshots from the track’s upcoming video.
She explains this free and open approach to creation, musing, “At first I had a certain idea in my head for the EP, but that’s really not a good way for me to work. I work very organically. I go into the studio and I make the beat with the producer as I feel it in the moment. Having preconceived ideas of what I want always get me in trouble. It was hard for me to let go of what I wanted it to sound like, versus how it’s actually going to turn out. Now that I think about it, I’m so glad I just let it happen naturally, rather than forcing a sound that wasn’t me.” This authenticity shines through across the project, which features collaborations with Kitty, Bukkweat Bill, and others. Chippy rocked the stage last night as part of the Red Bull Sound Select show at DROM in New York City alongside Bridget Kelly and others.
