All Hail His Majesty: King Kofi to Release New Single on 12th of May

Hot on the heels of his gig at Camden Assembly on 7th May, SEEN favourite King Kofi releases ‘Gone Fishin’, the follow up to the recent ‘Amy Told Me’. The new single is released exclusively via Soundcloud.

Recorded over the last month, the new track was produced by Earbuds who are best known for their work with the likes of Nike London, Puma, Elf Kid & The Square, Jammer BBK and Ghetts. The track is the first hint of what to expect from King Kofi’s eagerly awaited debut album, which is set for release later this year.

Although he’s only 21 years old, Kofi can, at times, pack a lifetime of pain and anguish into his lyrics and gives the listener a direct insight into what it means to be a young adolescent living in the UK right now. His influences cover a wide range of genres; it wouldn’t be uncommon when glazing over his discography to come across sounds that stem from electronica, indie music and UK grime. Yet, the London born rapper remains grounded in the aesthetic of hip-hop, somehow keeping his musical tastes apparent, but flowing together nicely.

Mentored by the producer/songwriter Semothy Jones who has worked with Wretch-32, Professor Green, Lady Sovereign, Little Boots and Boy Better Know, Kofi has been eager to share his latest work to a steadily growing fan-base which admire the rapper for being refreshingly open and relatable when it comes to his songwriting.

Sculpture in the City, Art for Everyone

Alex Evans at the Foundry Gallery, Chelsea Quarter: LDF17

The astute reader will have noticed that SEEN loves art about London. There are many artists in this city who draw (pun intended) their inspiration from it, none more so than Alex Evans whose fractal renderings hint at the entropic nature of urban life and perhaps also our anxieties and isolation in the 21st century. His latest exhibition ‘Invisible Systems’ can be seen at the Foundry Gallery, tucked away off the King’s Road until 26th October.
