Ipswich native, Bouvé, unclenches his grasp around his new body of work - a 6 track offering titled Chad Venom Files Vol. 1.
Achieving different ranges of emotion on each component of this project, Bouvé manages to showcase his multifaceted characteristics as an artist. While songs like "DON'T BREAK" and "SUMMER OT [OUTRO]" circulate around romantic interests, tracks like "PUT ME IN COACH" and "HORSEPOWER" consist of a much more elevated energy, providing the two parallels of what much of Bouvé's catalog ends up being at the end of the day.
Though he's a skilled producer, he stepped away from the task on this project, leaving the job at the hands of DDotFreezing, Lockage, 01ashes, Soju, JFlex, P.EXE, and Cobeau. Despite there being a wide array of producers involved, the cohesivness of this tape would have one thinking as though Bouvé worked exclusively alongside a singular producer. Ultimately, Chad Venom Files Vol. 1 is an excellent reminder of Bouvé skillset, and sets him up to continue his reign of excellence in 2021.
