Overall, Chrome Tapes is a superb example of what South Africa has to offer in this obscure genre. It is absorbing enough that it can be listened to again and again, and dynamic enough that one finds something new to take away from each listening experience. Make no mistake, Christian Tiger School are not a run of the mill electronic act, and their grungy experimental base lines make for an listening experience that some might fail to understand. But if you’re looking for something different, something local, and something memorable, you will be hard pressed to beat Chrome Tapes. If you’re unsure, their new music video for the single “Chorisolo” is on YouTube, and it serves as a fitting precedent for the Christian Tiger School approach to music-making.
