Chackie Jam is a Belgian synthpop band that is not afraid of mellow synth brass, epic synth leads, 80s inspired beats, slick guitars, catchy melodies and endlessly stacked vocals. Their sound evokes an instant VHS nostalgia mood. Is it disco? Is it funky? Call it guilty pleasure synth pop.
In September we recorded a debut album after having released two EPs. For this we did not go to the studio, but we organized three live sessions with an audience in the ‘Blikfabriek’ in Antwerp. With a band of 10 talented musicians we rehearsed all week before the recording weekend in a very amicable atmosphere that is also very apparent in the album.
As a band we did everything ourselves. Everyone contributed to the production in their own way, from the general organization and technical needs to catering and public reception. The result, a full live album, is something we are very proud of and excited about. Check out the video of the first single below!
