2015 has been a year of constant grinding from the London resident, who’s also representing for his roots out of Sierra Leone/Ghana. His Transitions EP – a hybrid of Afrobeats and multiple genres sounds, was released less than a year ago and caught traction in the U.K and across the channel. Touring on major festival lineups in the UK including Glastonbury Festival and The Liverpool International Music Festival, Silvastone then headed out on the road to Zimbabwe, Kenya and Sweden.
This year the MOBO Awards celebrate their 20th anniversary at the First Direct Arena in Leeds on November 4. But before the big anniversary party kicks off, Silvastone has got his own party going on, Mansion Pool Party style and the accompanying visuals will be dropping soon. The track is already catching spins on UK’s BBC Radio 1Xtra, Radio1, CapitalXtra, BangRadio, NewStyle, Reprezent and international airwaves are also bopping across Africa – including BEAT FM Nigeria, RadioCity Uganda, KISS FM Kenya, DiamondFM Zimbabwe, YFM Ghana. Add Soundcloud into the mix and it’s picked up almost 25,000 spins on Soundcloud over last 2 weeks.
Silvastone is nominated for MOBO AWARDS Best African Act 2015 and voting is open now.
