Seattle producer Chocolate Chuck (Charles Harris-White) has been quietly and elegantly releasing about a track a day on his Soundcloud this year, and the results are very much worth your serious engagement. For some reason, when talk turns to this city's best hiphop producers, Chocolate Chuck rarely gets mentioned; this may be partially due to his sister Cat being in THEESatisfaction and overshadowing his own endeavors. Whatever the case, we need to keep his name and work in the forefront of our minds. Such productivity coupled with absurdly high quality control is scarce and should be cherished. His tracks nonchalantly ooze funk and soul—they're at once rooted in golden-age headnodability and as texturally as adventurous as the output of many of today's cutting-edge artists. Make time for 'em.
