Kawlme Nnamdi sounds pretty much like a name for an avant-garde jazz musician, but today this is not the case. In god’s time, Kawlme Nnamdi presents his latest single ‚Drift‘ – and it’s electronic hip-hop at its finest.
More energetic than Spoek Mathambo (and way less dark), and more accessible than Kamasi Washington, Kawlme Nnamdi bangs witty, bouncy beats with a pendulum flow. Afrobeat hip-hop has made a major impact on the music scene lately, and ‚Drift‘ feels like a fitting addition. Kawlme seamlessly blends elements of traditional African music with contemporary hip-hop, creating a familiar sound with a modern twist.
‚Drift‘ has that certain simple charm, and doesn’t overstay it’s welcome being just two minutes long. Their lyrics are nice and easy, not especially thought-provoking or tackling socially important issues. The beats are still impressive and moving, with a driving rhythm.
Kawlme Nnamdi has the ability to create an immersive experience and the feeling of an instant party. I bet visiting a live show when Drift is banging will leave no chance to not dance.
Overall, ‚Drift‘ is a solid jobber to satisfy any Afrobeat/hip-hop music fan. The signature sound and carefree message make Kawlme Nnamdi one of the most exciting emerging artists in the genre, and his music is sure to inspire and uplift listeners for the years to come.
