It’s been two years since Chi Duly’s Balloons of Haus, the remix album that did victory laps around the internet with a cosign from The Weeknd himself. In what he deemed house music for the ‘I hate techno’ crowd, Duly’s remix approach laid a broad blueprint for the next several years. With an arsenal of remixes on deck, album co-production credits on the upcoming Shadows on Stars project, and a followup to Balloons of Haus due late summer, the pot is bubbling over. Join Chi on this 22 track house party bridging deep house with rap and R&B. Because theres only so much time left until will.i.am puts out a deep house pop album and destroys everything.
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Chi Duly delivers his 90’s school dance classic edit.
New music coming from Justin Timberlake after some Hiatus. I felt like his best work was wed with Timberland’s production. It will be interesting to see what he plans to release as well as the collaborators on the project. Also, enjoy this Chi Duly remix of Rock You Body.
Duncan dropped a new album last week on Sneaky Records/MRI called Covers 80s Remixed. The album features Samantha Ronson, El-P, Skylar Grey, Terry Urban and a bunch of other dope artists and producers. Chi Duly produced the first track, “Shout” a chill but neck snapping, mid-tempo electronic piece. Shout became the first single and it’s currently making radio rounds on the adult contemporary circuit.
“Duncan’s manager got ahold of me through my awesome friend Terry Urban to produce a new version of his Tears for Fears cover. For this new version of Shout, I aimed for electro while still retaining the original Tears for Fears vibe. Seeing as electro was born in the 80′s, it wasn’t much of a stretch.”
Just in time for Halloween, Chi puts a nice spooky flip on Ross’ ode to not being held down by anyone.
About six months ago I was ready to launch TMT, my artist management and development company to help bring some new talent to the forefront of Portland and abroad. After signing and working with Reign State, PMO, and Chi Duly, I’ve put together this beat tape to showcase their distinct skill sets as producers. At the same time, this beat tape is a way for me to express myself as an artist with the arrangement through their music and how it relates to my personal life.

Balloons of Haus is house music for the “I’m not really into techno” folks. It’s uptempo but more to the point (free of those minute long intros/breakdowns of arbitrary ambience). The concept was born of my interest in bringing The Weeknd’s vibe to a DJ set. He’s talking about what every other artist you hear in the club is talking about except he’s artistic, emotionally believable. The Weeknd’s subject matter is already club friendly. The pace however was only bedroom friendly. My project still retains that laid back, mellow uptempo R&B vibe but picks up on a harder electro vibe with the Dirty Diana remix. It’s all around a very diverse range of house music genres.
TMT producer, Chi Duly, just dropped a dope mash up of Carly Rae Jepsen’s vocals over instrumentals from a few Calvin Harris tracks. Also, check out the write up in the Huffington Post.

Fresh off releasing the True Theory Outtakes, Luck-One brings us his ode to Portland from his forthcoming project, True Theory, entitled “Sounds of My City” (produced by Chi Duly). I had a great time mixing this whole project and can’t wait til he releases it so everyone gets to hear it. Also, look out for the song I produced, “Monotheism”, when it drops with the rest of the project in March.
