Chaya and Kungs drop collaborative track ‘Sickness’


Irish multi-instrumentalist Chaya and French DJ/producer Kungs step out on Jax Jones’ WUGD imprint for the first time with ‘Sickness’.

A meeting between two of the scene’s brightest young talents and backed by surging momentum following Kungs’ huge 2021 single ‘Never Going Home’ alongside Chaya’s solo material, ‘Sickness’ welcomes the arrival of a captivating and impactful collaboration already set to make waves in the months ahead.

Originally created during a studio session in London, featuring in label boss Jones’ BBC R1 Essential Mix earlier this year, the highly-anticipated production has quickly gained support from established and emerging talent from across the scene.

Fusing a medley of broken beats, rumbling basslines and sweeping synths beneath captivating vocals and airy melodies, ‘Sickness’ harnesses a melting pot of influences and sonics as the pair deliver a sure-fire future anthem in the process.

Kungs, aka Valentin Brunel, is a fresh-faced producer from the south of France. He started his musical career with a djembe gifted by his parents to him at the age of five. As a name that has already exploded across the dance pop spectrum and for a fresh, unique European talent that is only still 21, he possesses a musical gift that is only set to springboard to extortionate new heights.

Dublin-born, London-based Chaya is a classically trained, multi-instrumentalist whose formative years excluded everything but classical music. It was time spent exploring New York City’s underground scene that introduced him to the electronic world.

Whilst studying at the Clive Davis Institute of NYU by day, Chaya’s nights were led by the DJ’s at Ladyfag and Unter parties, who revealed to him a love for dance music previously unknown. Now back in London, his classical training and dance passion unite in his song-focused creations.
