Ambitious. That’s the word I would use to describe Melbourne based electro artist Chet Faker. It’s not every day you go record your own version of an R&B classic/Grammy Award winning single from the not-so-distant past and manage to surpass it in every way imaginable, but that is exactly what Chet Faker did.

His interpretation of Blackstreet’s mid-90s classic “No Diggity” is a ridiculously smooth and fresh take on the genre, and strikes a chord not entirely dissimilar from fellow indie-electro artist James Blake, and I’m loving every minute of it. Even if you’re not familiar with the source material, it’s hard to not appreciate the skill and finesse brought to the table by Chet Faker.
