Manchester based artist Chunky has released his latest single, GNG (Guts N Grets).
Dubbed ‘city dwelling music’, the track sees Chunky twist his contemporary and classic African influences to cross ‘intergenerational Black art experiences’.
He’s brought in creatives Benji Reid and Vince Fraser to push this aspect of the release, too.

“What can I say, I'm super proud of my latest single - it's my take on afro-futurism,” says Chunky. “The production on the records harks back to a lot of things that I've had the pleasure of being involved with.
“I'm really proud of the lyrics on the track as they mean a lot to me and the visual side of things involve the incredible Benji Reed and Vince Frazer. Benji is someone who I have looked up to for a long time and Vince is a visual artist and afro-fusion animator who I believe is one of the best in the industry.
“Even though I made this track, if I was a fan I would be blown away by the concept, I'm extremely proud of the whole team involved.”
Chunky has been involved with hosting stages and basements for names such as Swamp 81 and Manchester’s LEVELZ, having been working on his craft for some time now.
