With the sweetest of sounds coming from the speakers of the Ticket Arena office it would be mighty selfish of us to keep them to ourselves, so we thought we’d let you in on what our staff use to soundtrack a hard day’s work. Now a weekly feature with the intent of bringing your attention to wonderful new sounds every Tuesday, our Album Of The Week looks at releases from the best in the game, whether fresh new acts about to hit the big time or established artists reminding the world of their continued talent. Simply put, it’s just the best in music that we think you should hear.
Featuring collaborations with the Landlord Giggs, Northern grime representative Bugzy Malone plus Abra Cadabra, Yxng Bane, Kranium and more, Kojo Funds’ brand new mixtape Golden Boy not only showcases his long list of fellow talented emceeing friends, but also that his polished sound of afro beat tinted beats extends to some other genres, as this eclectic mixtape touches on R&B, grime, hip hop and beyond. With influences stemming not only from his Ghanian and Dominican heritage, but also direct from his London upbringing, pairing the two and creating a cultural clash Funds’ calls Afro Swing - a pioneering sound worthy of our Album Of The Week title.
On Wednesday 16th January, Kojo Funds takes to Bristol’s Marble Factory venue to deliver some of these incomparable bars.
