Serious Klein is setting a new standard with his out of this world EP ‘’Ludus

Published

on

Ghanaian-German rapper, Serious Klein is proving why consistency matters with the release of his six-song EP, ‘’Ludus’’, via Guin Records and Family Tree. ‘’Ludus’’ sets the stage for Serious Klein to showcase his versatile lyrical ability to paint pictures about love and his daily moral conflicts in a way that arouses curiosity and intrigue. Listen here: https://orcd.co/ludus

 

Drawing inspiration from the meaning of love throughout the Bible and within Greek culture, ‘’Ludus’’ is a playful, youthful and naughty deep dive into the intricacies of intimacy. The EP’s standout track is the braggadocious ‘Numero Uno’. In regards to ‘Numero Uno’ Klein states ‘’The title of the song ‘Numero Uno’ reveals it all, it’s about me being the number one, a god MC, a king that holds his throne forever, no matter how long I haven’t released any music or I am absent, I’ll always come back hurting the scene’’.

Whether it’s him floating smooth over a groovy beat, taking your favorite rapper’s spot with his lyrical ability or painting vivid images with his storytelling – it’s hard not be impressed by Serious Klein’s craft and refreshing sound. It’s fiery and soft at the same time, but most of all: honest. His music is created to make you feel. His conscience is permanent on record, as he speaks honestly about the intimate moral conflicts, he experiences each day.

Serious Klein delivered his long-awaited album ‘’You Should’ve Known’’ – together with long time collaborators Rascal and Shove Island – the silver-tongued MC laid down sixteen concise and homogenous tracks that lead you through love, pain, anxieties, joy, and relief. Klein’s sophomore is highly anticipated. The rapper gave a little glimpse of his upcoming projects in his current single ‘Lil’ Capo’ which was aired on Revolt TV as ‘’International Heat’’.

Kelvin Boakye aka Serious Klein is an English rapping MC that has emerged out of the underground Hip-Hop scene in Germany. Debut EP ‘’The Serious Outlook’’ (2012) put Klein on the map in his small German city. His following EPs ‘’The Introduction’’ (2015) and ‘’Summer 03’s Problem’’ (2016) gained Klein more popularity within his local market and a new found recognition in the US & UK. His sound which he describes as ‘art rap’ is an eclectic mix of Jazz, Rap, Hip-Hop, Trap and Soul. His intrinsically diverse sound stems from his love of music of all kinds and is heavily influenced by artists ranging from 2Pac Shakur to Luther Vandross. 2016 brought Serious in contact with international artists such as Denzel Curry, Mick Jenkins, The Underachievers and Bryson Tiller, some of who he supported on European tour dates. Serious was invited to perform at Grammy award winner, Alicia Keys’s ‘Underdog’ in Berlin – recognized by the lady herself as one of the hottest urban newcomers in Germany. Support from Indie Shuffle, COLORS, Majestic Casual, Revolt, Complex and more are signs that this young artist is one to keep an eye on.

Adomaa Makes Return To Music; Announces ‘The Becoming Adomaa Experience’

Published

on

After a successful foray into the world of acting, alternative artist and singer Adomaa is back on the music scene, with a haunting but heartfelt music video announcing her new EP: ‘Becoming Adomaa.’

The video, which is for the song titled ‘You Used To Love Me,’ sees Adomaa reminisce on her entry into the music scene – when she had the most public attention – and how she wishes she had gone about navigating that period for herself. It is a brief but poignant reflection, and gives a sneak peak into the mindset of the singer at one of the lowest points in her career.

 

The video ends with the revelation of the cover art for her upcoming EP, titled ‘Becoming Adomaa’ – Adomaa seen in contemplative stance in an obviously neglected room overgrown with plants, and filled with objects of significance to her music career.

 

Before the release of the EP later this year, Adomaa is curating a one-of-a-kind experience for audiences to mark her musical comeback. Starting in July and running till September, she will be hosting on multiple nights, screenings of a short film featuring music from the EP, as well as a documentary that takes a deep dive into events from her start in music, through her disappearance and now to her return.

In addition to these, she will be providing intimate performances of songs from the EP live each night, after which there will be interactive sessions with audiences. This series of events has been tagged ‘Becoming Adomaa: The Experience,’ and the nights promise to be incredibly special, enthralling and deeply engaging.

 

To get tickets for any of these nights, visit the following link to book yourself a date: https://efie.co/adomaa

CALYPSO ROSE Shares Carlos Santana-featured Track “Watina”

Published

on

Calypso Rose’s zest for life is as infectious as ever, and 2022 will mark the return of the icon to center stage. Today, the 82-year old Trinidad and Tobago-raised musician has announced her latest album, FOREVER, due August 26, 2022 via Because Music. Throughout the new album, Rose presents original material with a distinctly modern approach, and revisits some of her greatest classics, giving us an album that speaks to everyone and transcends all ages. On FOREVER, the Queen of Calypso is joined by old friends and new artists throughout the fourteen tracks including: world music legend Manu Chao, soca king Machel Montano, Jamaican dancehall icon Mr. Vegas, Toulouse-based rapper Oli, and electro duo Synapson.The album’s first single, “Watina” is out now and features Belize’s The Garifuna Collective along with stellar riffs from none other than guitar legend Carlos Santanawho has previously noted, “Calypso Rose is a goddess of música del Caribe: a person who offers her heart & changes people’s lives & destiny.”

Listen to “Watina” here: https://calypso.lnk.to/watina

While the name Calypso Rose will be forever associated with her country Trinidad and Tobago, the love story that has bound her to Belize for almost forty years is part of her music, her career and her life. With “Watina,” she pays homage to the Garifuna, a Caribbean people scarred by slavery, excluded from memory, and part of whose population now lives not only in the United States, but also on the coasts of four Central American countries: Honduras, Guatemala, Nicaragua, and thus Belize. “Watina”  is a song full of devastating history, and contrasted by cheerfulness and celebration. Ivan Duran, Rose’s Belize-born longtime producer was also the “sound architect” for the late Andy Palacio, who co-founded and led the Belize-based band The Garifuna Collective until his untimely death in 2008. “Watina” was originally a local hit for The Garifuna Collective and, according to Duran, Calypso Rose was the only person who could recapture the frenzy and the impact of this song while respecting Palacio’s legacy. By recording and reimagining the song with the same musicians, she reaffirms her Belizean ties and once again exploits the contrast between the festive spirit and the social dimension of the music.

Lojay and Sarz Recruit Chris Brown for “Monalisa” Remix

Published

on

Lagos-based Afro-fusion artist Lojay and internationally renowned super-producer Sarz (Beyoncé, Drake, Wizkid, Burna Boy) have released a brand new remix of their recent smash single “Monalisa” featuring multi-platinum certified, GRAMMY Award-winning R&B superstar Chris Brown. STREAM HERE // LYRIC VIDEO HERE

Taken from Lojay & Sarz’s collaborative LV N ATTN EP last year, the original “Monalisa”became an early standout due to its hypnotic beat and infectious hooks, becoming not just one of the biggest releases in Nigeria, but a global hit that put Lojay on the map as one of Nigeria’s fastest-rising cultural exports and cemented Sarz’s reputation as the most significant name in Afrobeats. Check out the duo’s LV N ATTN EP HERE.

With over 100 million streams to date, it’s safe to say that “Monalisa” became something of a cultural phenomenon last year. The track not only won applause from the likes of The Face, HYPEBEAST, and The FADER — where it ranked No. 30 on their 100 Best Songs of 2021 list— but it also became the 5th most streamed song across Nigeria last year. Meanwhile, the track demonstrated its massive transatlantic reach by peaking at No. 1 on Shazam’s Global Afrobeats chart and within the top 10 on both the US and UK Official Afrobeats charts.

Sharing his excitement about the new remix, Lojay says, “at the time I was creating this song I would have never imagined hearing a Chris Brown verse on it but the best part is he actually took his time and killed it and gave the song a different feel. He’s someone I’ve always wanted to work with so this is a really good feeling.”
