New Tape - Chica X - Chica X - "-Born in EAST MOLINE, IL on January 20th 2000 CHICA X – real name XIOLA TAPIA – was destined to find her way into music through parents – JORGE and AMBER TAPIA – joint owners of a record shop/music venue and band mates in experimental group EYES. At the age of six – Chica showed interest in watching her father record music – an interest that eventually led to recorded collaborations with him.
At the age of 7, CHICA X had already released one record “AGES 6 TO 7” and performed several times. Though simplistic and repetitive – Chica’s blend of basic beats and chants began to catch the attention of DIY music fans through the Midwest as she started to perform outside her hometown. The experimental hip hop / pop driven “AGES 6 TO 7” eventually sold over 1,000 copies, allowing Chica to purchase a bike and several toys with her earnings.
The continued hype of CHICA X found its way to CHICAGO indie act and label HEWHOCORRUPTS INC. in late 2007. The relationship led to several performance collaborations and a split 7” record between CHICA X and HEWHOCORRUPTS in early 2009 on CASSETTE DECK CONGLOMERATE." - Hewhocorrupts Inc.
