Ankathie Koi - Kate, It’s Hunting Season from Sticky Fins out on October 24 on Seayou Records
Ever since I heard that Fijuka’s Ankathie had a solo project coming up, I was curious. The result does sound quite a bit like Fijuka, however it’s more electronic, a bit more high-pitched, a bit more Prince-y. And it has the added bonus of a song title that is also a sentence, which is one of my favourite things.
So we usually have a no demo policy around here but this light and classic tune sounds like it could (once fully produced and polished) pop up in the intro or during the credits of a Nick Hornby screen adaptation.
Kwabena Adjepong, a.k.a. Kwabs is back with Last Stand produced by SOHN. It’s just late-night beautiful.
It’s a good thing that Kwabs is playing both Reeperbahnfestival and Waves Vienna because I am attending both and this significantly reduces the chances of me missing out on him due to drunk shenanigans overthrowing my carefully laid out festival battle plan. It’d really be a shame to miss this voice.
Country of origin: United Kingdom Kwabs is playing Reeperbahnfestival in Hamburg on September 20 at Mojo Club and Waves Vienna on October 2 at Porgy & Bess
