NEW ACTS

New acts are popping up every week and it’s our mission to unveil them as it happens. 

Multi-music genre artiste and retro musician,Ibejii spins a tale of victory over oppression in “Gonto”

Multi-music genre artist and retro musician, Ibejii music spins a tale of victory over oppression in new song “Gonto”. Coming off his yet unannounced 5th project, Gonto recounts the victory of tiny masquerades in the face of a big selfish one who chose to suppress and stifle other voices. Gonto is Ibejii’s celebration of the ultimate victory of ordinary people over their oppressors.

Ibejii’s sound is a unique blend of African vibes and international sound.He explores traditional Yoruba folk, jazz, dance, RnB, juju among other genres to serenade his audience through the art of skilful storytelling embellished with folklore, metaphor and vernacular.

Born a twin in the UK, his music reflects that experience. His debuts “Green White Dope 001” and “Green White Dope 002” reflects this along with the themes of corruption and bad governance he speaks out against. On his influences, the singer comments;

Ibejii is influenced by all music styles. From Cuban music to Afro jazz to rock, pop and to bring it down to the contemporary dimension, a big influence is Fela. Others are Brymo, Asa and Marvin Gaye. Prince? I am a big lover of prince.

 

He has gone on to release more projects like Tribal Marks, Music Saved My Life (MSML) etc.

Garey Godson drops his 4th studio project “Lucid Thoughts”

Garey Godson drops his 4th studio project Lucid Thoughts. The 6 track EP delivers a smooth blend of Afrofusion tunes as well as RnB and Trap-Drill elements. The opening track Shinning Black reaffirms negritude ideas with a short poem by 7-year-old Nylah performed at a Black Lives Matter protest in the UK.

The following track Macking Things is a laid back summer tune which paints pictures of a youngster who expresses a rather free form of relationships and encounters. Interestingly this record is placed before Tender which is an alluring tune hinged on rather sensual lyrics and a yearning for romance. This colorful contrast is evident in the lyrical approach and instrumentation.

This leads us to More Life which features the singer David Meli. The smooth delivery by Meli complimented by Godsons deep rap vocals creates a perfect blend. Next, comes a conscious drill infused number with Nigerian US based rapper and producer, DAP The Contract on Fast Lane. He rounds off the EP with  Kobain named after pop icon and Nirvana lead singer. He features Austrian-Nigerian rapper Law on this track. As mentioned by Garey

“Law and I wrote Kobain during the heat of the End Sars protest in Nigeria and the murder of George Flyod in the US”.

HKMK,Trabbey, Zion Beatz, Goldgod Midas, SJB productions can be credited for exceptional production. All tracks mixed and mastered by HKMK. Artwork illustrated by Ebube Onoh.
