Chrome Sparks is the project of young wunderkind Jeremy Malvin, a musician and producer living in Brooklyn, New York, by way of Pittsburgh and Ann Arbor. His newest EP Parallelism was just released on Future Classic to critical acclaim. He probably remains best known for his 2012 track “Marijuana,” a thumping, fluttering piece of synth-based bass music that unexpectedly set the Internet alight. Malvin creates dazed, melodic beat-centric tunes that loosely hang between down-tempo head nodders and up-tempo club bangers.
