Chester French is a band on the rise. 1/2 of the group is D.A. Wallach who is from Milwuakee and currently calls Milwaukee home. The other is member is Max who if from Boston. The group met at Harvard (yes, Harvard). I been chatting with D.A. on an off for while now and he is one of nicest people you will meet. During this past week's beat battle finals at Turner Hall, D.A. was one of the judges. Before the battle began, He gave me a sneak peak of the mixtape he just released today called Jacques Jams Volume 1. This is not a mixtape. This is really a free album. All the songs are original material which is different than a mixtape. You can download the mixtape for free at Chester French's website. (caution: mixtape contains adult language, and is not meant for the kiddies).
Here are two of my favorite tracks from the Jacques Jams:
Chester French - "Nerd Girl feat. Janelle Monae" (download)
Chester French - "I'm So Tall feat. Bun B, Talib Kweli, and Mickey Factz" (download)
