To mention a few.

Years of experience gained by honing their craft in various bands, has resulted in the meticulously thought through and refined debut album, that is MONO vs STEREO. Having had its official launch, on March the 11th 2016, the material was eagerly welcomed by fans and received critical acclaim.

“A highly successful and sumptuous debut, both from
the point of view of the essence as well as the form.
A skilful blending of genres, served in an easily
absorbed form, it avoids being trivial thanks to the
skill of the musicians. Instrumental, yet interesting till
the end.”
- "Drummer" Magazine

“MONO vs STEREO is brimming with swinging
groove, jazzy flavours and a funky edge. MONO
vs STEREO packs a punch. The whole thing swal-
lows you up into another world in its musicality and
production values. At times it sounds a bit like Beck,
sometimes Pastorius, other times Miles Davis. One
thing is for sure: it hits you right between your eyes
and takes you far away…”
- Shallow comment

“CHANGO went for an unstoppable electro vibe,
combining elements of Hip-hop, Funk, Soul, Blues
and Jazz-rock, whilst never neglecting modern music
trends. It lacks neither subtlety, nor mastery. The
musicians have managed to bring together opposing
passions and in fact an emotive vitality is present in
every composition. They say you can’t move moun-
tains…this time it worked”
- (Slow)

The record, which may leave you hypnotized, was crafted at Stobno Records on the outskirts of Szczecin (PL), and finely tuned on the other side of the Atlantic. Legendary Echo Mountain Studio (Asheville) and Studio B (Charlotte) gave the record its final shape. DJ Falcon1 (scratching) and Tomasz Licak (jazz saxophone), polar opposites in their respective disciplines, yet both masters of their game, were invited to collaborate on the project. Thanks to their contribution, the LP gained a compelling, electrifying edge. No matter who gets their hands on it, be it a fan of Hip Hop, Soul, Blues, Jazz-Rock or new music, one thing’s for sure: they will get something
out of it. At Chango’s concerts you’ll be sure to find improvisation, analogue sound and above all quality music…
