Producer Killbeatz is not done sampling some of Highlife music’s best compositions.
On Concert Party, a new effort he pieced for R2Bees, it looks like he took inspiration from Leo Nana Agyemang and his Opambuo International Band of Ghana’s ‘Mani So Tan me’ hit song of 1984, as well as Alex Konadu (1950-2011)’s ‘Adwoa Bene’ to produce a beautiful contemporary work.
Concert Party is awesome, – one for the charm it exudes – and two, the fact that those wands are being made potent through vehicles (R2Bees) who were either not born or too young when the songs were hits.
The song is similar in pattern to Killbeatz’s recent instrumentation in Love, Odo, and Lobi, for the duo, who have also not disappointed, Mugeez, the most important subset in an ecosystem that only started experimenting with adaptations latterly.
A song that may ultimately make it onto their upcoming album, it defeats the very basic definition of contemporary rap music, which the two practiced in the early stages of their career. In Concert Party, is a brilliantly embedded career auto-correct.
