Serving as the final installment in his “GAZI” series, which includes his debut Welcome To Gazi (2016) and On Gaz (2017), ‘FAR FROM GAZ‘ finds A.CHAL baring his soul again in what most would agree is his most vulnerable project yet. Furthermore, expressing all the emotions he experienced navigating an unequally yoked record deal, the new LP features standouts “Dirty Dancin,” “High Horse,” “TAPPD’N,” and “Nobody Like Me.”
A.CHAL On His Newest LP
“The reasons I made music changed. Moreover, I felt like I was chasing something, like I was making music to feed my ego. I had lost control. I was frustrated and the fans kept asking where the music was”– A.CHAL
Born in Lima, Peru as a descendant of the Quechua people, A.CHAL grew up between the cities of Trujillo, Peru and Queens, New York. Because of his multiculturalism, A.CHAL developed a unique sound punctuated with a fusion of indigenous Peruvian sounds, modern trap-soul sonics, and the sounds he consumed growing up on the east coast of the U.S., where he admired icons such as DMX, TheDiplomats, Lil Wayne, and Pharrell.
