Christian Rich is the work of identical twin brothers, Taiwo "Christian" Hassan and Kehinde "Rich" Hassan, who combine to form a forward-thinking production team and DJ duo. Based in Los Angeles, and raised in Chicago and Nigeria, they most recently helped produce Earl Sweatshirt's newest hit Chum. They have built an impressive production profolio, having collaborated with many US artists including Lupe Fiasco, J Cole, Rye Rye, N.E.R.D/Pharrell, and others.
Christian Rich are currently working on a body of work called Emporium Ming that features vocals from several singers. The album concept is based on inspiration from the likes of Radiohead, Major Lazer and Kanye West’s 808s & Heartbreak album. The first two releases from the album Magic and XIX feature Scottish vocalist Angela McCluskey (Télépopmusik). They are both joint singles with initial release in UK.
XIX is a track that sees Taiwo and Kehinde working on combining Jamaican Dub influences, intricate, downbeat glitch and the Trap Hop sounds that have become synonymous with their sound. A remix package will also be available next year for the current singles and a full LP album.
