Berlin Group, KitschKrieg, Enlists Brooklyn’s Own DUSTY LOCANE For New Banger, “Ratchets”

A mysterious collective with a black-and-white aesthetic and a militaristic dedication to the cool, Berlin’s KitschKrieg are ready to remake the American music scene in their own image. Their first stop: Brooklyn, one of the chief outposts in the global ascension of drill music.

Combining the sliding 808s of NYC/UK drill with insistent house kick drums and horror movie strings, “Ratchets” strives to create the kind of banger that can shutdown clubs across the globe. DUSTY LOCANE attacks the instrumental with his trademark snarling basso voice, switching up his flow, turning to rapidfire triplets, lockstep rolls, and invigorating chants as the beat shifts from BK drill to Jersey club and back.

D Jay is back in the spotlight with spanking new song ‘Balance It’

Versatile Ghanaian singer, D Jay registers his first song of the year and we are happy to report there are no misses in sight. ‘Balance It’ is available on all digital streaming platforms globally here:

‘Balance It’ is D Jay’s new standalone song. Its vocal allure alone is steady in delivering an experience that’s sonically intense. There are some nice lyrics aboard too, each sweetly bouncing off the bass-rich production from D Jay’s go-to producer Samsney and it’s lit. 

Getting your crush to kick it with you can be a quite frustrating affair. But not if you are D Jay. The Afrobeat star simply has his way with words and ‘Balance It’ puts his charisma to full effect. D Jay wants one Abena to know they are the perfect match – which he does in all confidence – occasionally revealing his vulnerable side.

Apple Music’s latest Africa Rising artist is Afrobeats singer, Victony

Apple Music announced the latest featured artist in its Africa Rising artist development program as 20-year-old Nigerian-born singer, songwriter and rapper Victony (real name Anthony Ebuka Victor).

“Apple Music is opening the world to the beauty of African music and I’m glad to be one of the select few that are championing the new school sound and breaking boundaries in these exciting times. Love!” Victony tells Apple Music.

Born in Orsu, Imo in Nigeria, Victony’s foray into music started with his Soundcloud mixtape called, The Outlaw King (2017), and although he started out primarily rapping, he began to incorporate elements of trap, R&B and Afropop into his music showcasing his versatility, and experimenting with his sound. 

After being in a car accident that almost claimed his life and the use of his legs, Victony was confined to a wheelchair for months during his recovery. But he didn’t let that deter him from making music, releasing several hit singles like the introspective “Pray”, and the upbeat collaboration with Mayorkun called “Holy Father”, as well as working with Grammy-winning producer Rexxie to release the two-single EP Nataraja (2021). 

His latest EP, OUTLAW (2022), available to stream now on Apple Music in Spatial Audio, is a showcase of his meticulous musical arsenal. Spearheaded by single “Apollo” (that features a sample of the DJ Clock and Beatenberg smash hit “Pluto”), the EP is a tour de force of melodic elements, from the Afropop anthem “Chop and Slide featuring Burna Boy” to the slower, sensual beat of “Kolomental”.  

The latest music from Victony along with that of Africa’s hottest new artists, is available now on the Apple Music Africa Rising Playlist.

GH Drill and Phrimpong Collaborate for Next-Level Drill Anthem ‘Dibi’

The Ghanaian Londoner’s new single ‘Dibi’ featuring Phrimpong is out now and it’s a song we simply can’t get enough of.

Drill (or Asakaa as we call it back home) is gradually becoming a sound to beat. Couple that with GH Drill’s ambition to whisk Ghanaian “drillers” to the next level and it’s only right for the drill umpire to “dibi” (eat some) out of the genre’s fast-rising success.

But that’s not what his new anthem is about. ‘Dibi’ like its genre peers is big on lifestyle. It hinges on the pursuit of pleasure and has GH Drill urge listeners to actively get a healthy dose of life on a variety of fronts: “Onua didi. Wo y3 adwuma ah didi/Drip nu 3ya gye bi/Sika nu 3ya ky3 bi. Cars nu 3ya twe bi/Nsa nu 3ya tswa bi’’, because balance is everything and a good mental health is of utmost importance.
