GOD.DAMN.CHAN

USA + CANADA: noah@surefireagency.com

Channing Day, best known as GOD.DAMN.CHAN, is a Portland, ME-based producer and DJ. Chan describes his music as a bubbling fondue pot of hip-hop, trap, electronica, bass, and broken-beat. In Bandcamp Daily’s ears, he sounds like “punishing, face-frying trap,” yet XLR8R commends Chan’s “delicate beats and psychedelic lullabies.” Perhaps it’s his intricate  style of genre-bending that’s garnered GOD.DAMN.CHAN loyal fans and attention in the beat  community.

Having been majorly influenced by the likes of J Dilla, Flying Lotus, and other beat scene mainstays, GOD.DAMN.CHAN set out from his home in Portland to pursue acclaimed L.A. electronic label, Alpha Pup Records. Longtime Low End Theory resident, DJ Nobody, was one of the first to discover Chan, and quickly put him on a Low End Theory lineup. Flash forward to 2018; GOD.DAMN.CHAN.’s debut album, Slush, releases via Alpha Pup Records.  On release day, Slush quickly climbed iTunes' “Top 10 Electronic Albums” chart, landing at  number 6; an impressive accomplishment for a debut project. Two months later, Chan dropped VEIB, a hip-hop collaboration featuring rapper Shane Reis, over beats produced by GOD.DAMN.CHAN.  

The two projects have since been featured on several of Spotify’s curated playlists including:  Silk Sheets, Genre Glitch, Just Bounce, Jazz Vibes, and Fresh Finds. EDM Sauce dubbed Slush one of the “coolest records of the year”, alongside work from heavy-hitters like Alison  Wonderland, Sango, and The Glitch Mob. Armed with ambition and talent — and if the traction Chan’s gained in only a short-time is any indication of his trajectory —GOD.DAMN.CHAN has proved he is destined to make a lasting imprint on the beat scene.
