Mach-Hommy is closing out 2021 with his newest full-length effort, Balens Cho.

Clocking in at approximately 25 minutes, the 13-track record features guest appearances from Tha God Fahim and AA Rashid, along with production from the likes of Ras G, Nicholas Craven, Conductor Williams, Fortes, and Messiah Musik. Balens Cho, which translates to “hot candles” in Kreyol, takes listeners on a journey exploring Haiti from Mach-Hommy’s perspective, as well as allows audiences to understand the artist’s motivation to build a technology-focused school for Haitian youth.

Balens Cho arrives shortly after Mach-Hommy appeared on KAYTRANADA’s Intimidated EP, where he contributed to the cut “$payforhaiti,” and follows his May record Pray For Haiti, which was named one of HYPEBEAST’s Best Albums of 2021… So Far.

Stream Mach-Hommy’s Balens Cho on Spotify and Apple Music.
