It’s May, and all of a sudden people are feeling a bit more chipper. Festivals big and small loom on the horizon (Sonar, Secret Garden Party, Love System, The Garden stick out to us).
And, believe it or not, Kumasi are in the mood for throwing their biggest party yet! A 14hour, outdoor/indoor, day/night extravaganza in fact…
The line-up is, quite frankly, spot on. KOLOMBO hops across the channel to take the helm of Kumasi Music’s May Bank Holiday Special. Kolombo’s 2012 was amongst the most prolific in the game, where he began to be recognized as a producer of considerable talent and style, not least by heavyweights Solomun and Jamie Jones. He is joined by LOVEBIRDS, a stalwart of house music and a real producer’s producer. He has been remixed by Vincenzo, Gorge, Greg Wilson and Steve Bug, whilst certified anthem “Want You In My Soul” ft Stee Downes (Winding Road) says all that needs saying about his own tunes. HNQO, whose track “Point of View” (Hot Creations) found itself knocking around with this writer’s best tracks of 2012, will make an esteemed Kumasi Music debut. The warm climes and disparate musical heritage of Brazil have colored his music with the same melodic inspiration as some of his fellow countrymen, namely Amon Tobin and DJ Marky.
