Trailblazing Ghanaian Afrobeats artist Darkovibes has unveiled his highly anticipated debut solo album Kpanlogo available now across all digital streaming platforms via The Orchard. CLICK HERE to listen to the eclectic album that fuses elements of Ghanaian Afrobeat with hip-hop, rap, and trap, and features collaborations with several of Africa’s finest musicians including Runtown, Mr Eazi, King Promise, Kwesi Arthur, Joey B, Peruzzi, and Mugeez.
On the inspiration behind his debut studio album, Darkovibes shares, “I chose the album title Kpanlogo because it not only reflects my heritage as a Ghanaian artist, but it also reflects the mode of the album and myself. I reference culture and movement, but with a fresh twist – just like when urban youth started doing the Kpanlogo dance in the 1960s – it’s about the future, and the past simultaneously.”
As the musical landscape in Ghana continues to shift, there are few standouts like Darkovibes who are poised to take over for the next generation. In a widespread editorial feature entitled “Ghana Is Now,” The FADER recognized the genre bending artist as, “revolutionizing the way we see life in Ghana, helping to bridge the representation gap between Africa and the rest of the world” with Notion citing him as “the muse for this progression.” Upon the release of “Different,” Pitchfork noted, “La Même Gang is the closest thing Ghana has to a boy band…with a bright singing voice and knack for slow-grinding odes to the women he loves, Darkovibes has quickly become one of the crew’s standouts.”
With the release of his debut solo album Kpanlogo, Darkovibes is fusing his tried-and-tested sound with experimental approaches that will continue to push the envelope of Afrobeats music. Ghana is now, and Darkovibes is leading the charge.
