One of the UK’s most left field thinkers in Afrobeats, Afro B is back with a new video featuring Yxng Bane. ‘Juice & Power’, taken from Afro B’s ‘Afrowave’ EP, is another page in the book of his story.
“The EP is a mixture of traditional stuff and what’s going on in the UK right now,” Afro B tells me when we sit down to talk about his journey, “I’ve had to keep dropping hits to show people it’s not a fluke.”
Afro B has grown his nationwide fanbase from the ground up, born in London to Ivorian parents the artist and DJ is among the earliest promoters of the UK’s Afrobeats sound. His Reprezent Radio show, Afrobeats with Afro B played a major role in spreading both homegrown and traditional Afrobeats across the country.
Typically for Afro B, ‘Juice & Power’ is a fusion of all we know and love, produced by long time collaborator N2TheA, Afro B serves up a club focused mesh of Afrobeats, Bashment and Trap with Yxng Bane on hand to add some shine.
Look out for the full interview with Afro B coming soon and more about his forthcoming compilation ‘Moves’.
