NEW JOINT: Tee Phlow – Ash3daa

Published

on

It is the opening seconds of the song’s layout – which came in typical Hammer of the Last Two style – that gets you to stay on for some few more minutes.

And then when Tee Phlow, Hammer’s newest cool kid jumped on it, he gets it off to a start that is blissfully grand.

Boasting an incredible lyrical prowess that is comparable to any on the open market, he carefully chooses his words – composed in fine Fante diction, and takes it home.

Tee Phlow goes uptempo on this one, and is aided by an instrumentation that was adroitly arranged well.

Hammer is bent on securing a mainstream appreciation for him; and on this one, Tee Phlow more than anything indicates his preparedeness to play big.

As if he’s been told to go hard or go home, he shows signs of a cat hungry for some respect in urban music.

He’s got it – at least on his first outings – The Warning (LISTEN HERE), and on Kwaw Kese’s Swedru Agona. (LISTEN HERE), he proved that.

The release of Ash3daa precedes two others, one of which will feature Kwabena Kwabena.

Here are visuals to the title track of the album, shot at the BBNZ offices and directed by Esianyo Kumodzi:

New Video: Amaarae – ‘Lonely’

Published

on

Born in New York and raised between Atlanta and Accra, 23 year old singer, songwriter, producer and engineer, amaarae is an artist who describes herself and her sound as an eclectic blend of bold, yet sexy lyricism and longing vulnerable melodies.

The polarizing combination of uninhibited wordplay and amaarae’s small yet alluring vocals are what makes this young woman so shocking to listen to, yet one cannot help but fall prey to the fierce expression of lust, pain, and love lost in the singer’s music.

Here, the artist presents herself in the most intimate setting possible, her living room – performing her song “Lonely”.

Her upcoming project Sex, Heartbreak & The Beach will be available on all streaming platforms in late October.

I present an African vibe with int’l packaging – XtaCy

Published

on

Singer XtaCy is set for greatness. Signed to the respected supreme Rights imprint, the versatile act has already courted significant appeal with compelling debut singles “Kings of Our Prime”, and “Frema” (a flavoursome remake of the beloved Akosua Agyepong classic).

Born Emmanuel Prempeh, XtaCy spent most of his childhood in neighbouring Nigeria, only returning to the motherland in 2001.

A versatile act, Xtacy discovered his gift for melody at a very tender age, eventually blooming into a fully- fledged act. And while his soothing voice is what is fast earning him acclaim, he also dabbles in rap and production.

The O’Reilly SHS alumnus’ sound is unquestionably addictive, and just like his stage name, possesses the ability to take the listener to majestic altitudes: “Ecstasy (the drug) is known to be very addictive, because it puts people in a trance. I see myself as a human form of Ecstasy –something very unique. That, coupled with the facts that my favorite letter is “X”, and my favorite comic character, Prof. Xavier of X-Men led me to my current showbiz alias”, he explains.

An old soul, XtaCy grew up on the sonic influences of African legends as King Sunny Ade,C.K man,Paa Bobo, Fela Kuti, and Rex Omar –something which inadvertently has influenced his music identity. “Listening to these legends tuned my senses for African music”, he further observes.

It is  therefore no wonder that he describes his sound under the authentic African genres Afrobeat and Highlife. At the same time, he mines from other genres as dancehall, reggae, and other forms of island music.,those were my biggest influences growing up.

Popular Ghanaian singer Ebony and KiDi, Nigeria’s  Yemi Alade, Stonebwoy, Wizkid, AKA, Mi Casa, Bantu Clan, and Nasty C are among acts he names as his favourite crop of African musicians.

Ultimately, what is the direction of the XtaCy sound?

“I like to give people an African vibe with international packaging –call it the best of both worlds”.
