On his debut album Sounds of My World, the UK-based Ghanaian producer, DJ and multi-instrumentalist recruits a fresh, colourful batch of rising artists and trusted collaborators (including Wizkid, Sauti Sol, Jaz Karis, Fireboy DML and Niniola).
“After [2019 mixtape] Colour, I started making new beats as soon as it was done,” he says. “I had a studio built from scratch. And that’s my world, where I discover new sounds. This is an expression of all my mind is going through.”
The album forms a dazzling love letter to traditional sounds from Africa—from Ghanaian highlife to South African amapiano via silky-smooth Afrobeat—all filtered though innovative global lenses.
“I always want it to be different to the next and the next and the next,” he says of his thirst for bold experimentation. “I don’t want any particular sound, because then I’ll feel like I’ve already done it before.”
The deluxe edition adds five new tracks, including a “Summer in the Ends” remix with Zikomo and Jaz karis, and new collabs with Projexx and Sevana.
