Watch Chet Faker live from Coachella
Chet Faker’s unique brand of tripped out hip hop and funkadelic rock felt right at home during Coachella’s second day in the desert. Commanding a crowd’s worth of attention while self sampling and patrolling the stage, Faker presented himself as a true front man for the electronic era. Driven by melodies and melancholy, the Aussie talent presented his hits accompanied by backing musicians and his trusty launchpad, setting the mood during the late afternoon in Indio. “Talk is Cheap,” “Drop the Game” and his killer rendition of Blackstreet’s “No Diggity” all make appearances in the hour long performance that proves that electronic acts can draw a crowd without an obnoxious thump.
