Kwabs - Last Stand

Posted 2 years ago
Producer:
SOHN
Album:
None (Promo Single)

While it might seem counter-intuitive, Kwabs makes the first of (what is sure to be) many DJBooth appearances with Last Stand; his career, however, is just getting started. Born in Ghana and raised in London, Kwabs’ style is as exotic as his roots (at least to us Americans). Setting the stage on this unique ballad is SOHN, the producer who recently remixed the Angel Haze single Echelon (It’s My Way), who surrounds a slow, clapping beat with a few organ-like effects. The production, combined with Kwabs’ smoldering, powerful vocals creates a hauntingly beautiful, entrancing atmosphere that is darkly potent and yet oddly soothing. Last Stand, available soon for digital purchase, is slated to appear on the buzzmaker’s 2014-bound debut.
