kelvyn Colt Traded for You

This is the first taste of KELVYN COLT‘s new EP. The lead track Traded For You shows a sampling of how big the slick hip-hopper’s talent is and musical style. His rough, yet cool vocal delivery accompanies the production from Jumpa that rolls smoothly into one huge record.

Kelvyn’s debut release independently charted for 10 weeks on the German VIVA Black Charts reaching number 18 with fellow rapper Elijah Hook. With that success, he then opened for Ace Hood (Germany), Adam Tensta (Germany) and has gained an endorsement from Monster Products (Germany).

He has now relocated to London from Berlin in order to increase his international exposure and become part of the thriving and inspiring scene in the UK, where he has already opened for Tim Westwood and has been doing various shows at DSTRK and The Box.

Currently Kelvyn is working on new music. His first UK release is a powerful piece of Hip Hop. He’s been working with some of the biggest producers in Europe who crafted some of the planets biggest artists including; US producer Purpdogg (Drake feat Soulja Boy – We Made It), Cubeatz (Drake, Meek Mill ), OZ (Lil Wayne, Chris Brown, Big Sean, Drake, Travis Scott ) Jumpa ( Sony ATV writer and producer), Abaz (Warner Brothers multi platinum producer of Young Thug, Booba – a French rap icon), Robot Koch (electronic music legend, part of red bull music academy), Sugayboy & Hyperfine and Deadrabbit (German producer icon)

This is a stunning debut from a great new rapper that brings the UK, Europe and Africa together. Watch the magic happen.

Album Review: African Fabrics – Daniel Haaksman

African Fabrics Daniel Haaksman

Berlin-based DJ and producer DANIEL HAAKSMAN is, without question, the forerunner of  giving world music that punch of excitement and he certainly makes no exceptions in the latest album, African Fabrics.

The 11-track effort boasts the fiercest Afrobeats going with the equally fierce electronic drive –  a sweet yet explosive combination that never brings a dull moment.

It’s definitely a groundbreaker – experience (what I call) tropical house for yourself; hit that play button NOW!

Star Song: Momo –BOMBEE

momo bombee

Today’s song is Momo by German indietronic band BOMBEE. The single is out the on 23th August 2013 and is the first release from their upcoming EP Aurelia.

The band was born out of a close friendship between Alexander Seypt (vocalist) and Philip Roeder (drums/electronics).The duo was later joined by Felix Schubert (song writing/electronics) and Markus Altmann (cello). Together they created an undeniably unique blend of heavy melancholic/down tempo drives with pleasantly light, crisp and beautiful undertones.

The relaxing Momo is a great introduction to this four-piece band, as it possesses their perfect signature infusion, making it a good listen on a pleasant summer’s day. Have a listen. If you like the sound of Momo, you can download this single, plus other tracks, on their  SoundCloud page.
