Hailed as the funkiest rebels to ever flunk out of air-conditioner repair school, Memphis based duo Chugga (a.k.a. Lester Fuero and Jeff Hanes) combine the straight-on breaks of old-school hip-hop with 70's funk and 90's jeep dub. Their stripped-down approach to making music pays tribute to the mixing styles of 70's DJ's such as Kool Herc and Afrika Bambaataa, while maintaining a relaxed flow that works just as well for deep listening.

When asked what they were currently up to, Jeff quipped, "Use your time machine to send that question back 15 years, when somebody might have cared."

Chugga continue to reside in Memphis.
