Chimp Hardy releases euphoric acid house cut ‘I Need Your Love’


Berlin-based party-starter Chimp Hardy scores the perfect hat-trick with the sensual and euphoric acid house cut ‘I Need Your Love’, released on Kaiser Wilhelm Records on 27 April

Following his acclaimed singles ‘Every Piece Of My Heart’ and ‘Take Me There’ ft Gilli.jpg, Chimp Hardy releases the third and final single from his ‘Piano Love Songs For Ravers’ EP, which will be out on 25 May. 

‘I Need Your Love’ examines the hypermasculine role in love songs. The main vocals are repeating the lyrics, “I need your love”, while the female vocal just moans throughout. This robotic desire is echoed in the sound selection, with many elements giving the feel of machinery culminating in a building of tension followed by a release, which in turn is followed by a glowing sense of love from the strings during the reprise when the woman finally gets her fulfilment. Chimp Hardy also drew inspiration from the classic film Blade Runner with its depiction of holographic women on skyscrapers, with their projected feelings.

Part club kid, part urban shaman, queer artist Chimp Hardy is no stranger to controversy. The Berlin-based, Austin, Texas, born DJ and producer challenges his audiences to go out of their mind. Body painted and partially naked, he creates a post-apocalyptic tribal utopia where everyone is free to let go and leave their restrictions at the door.

His sets transcend all boundaries, taking dancers on a journey from Chicago House to G-house, Breaks, Rave, and Techno. With releases on legendary Chicago House label TRAX Records and on his own Kaiser Wilhelm he is building a name for himself as one to watch. Despite the clubs being closed, 2021 turned out to be a momentous year for Chimp, including winning a merit-based grant from Musicboard Berlin and performing a wild Livestream for Beatport

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
