Spearheading a new wave of electronic music originating from Nigeria by way ofLondon, musician/producer/vocalist Leke aka CHiF has been travelling back andforth between his two cities, Lagos and London, continually seeking ways toexplore and push the musical envelope. After honing his skills with a varietyof artists & productions on both continents, and working for a while as asound designer in the Nollywood industry, Leke has now pulled all his charms,experiences, fears and vulnerabilities into Ekiti Sound, an impressivelyeclectic project that speaks to today's music heads, Afropunkers and globaldiaspora. Recorded in Lagos, Ekiti Sound's debut album Abeg No Vex fuses undergroundelectronic music, fat hip hop drums, rolling African percussion, the vocalvariety of Nigerian folklore & pop, and mixes it all in a calabashment of bigroom party bounce to create a unique and utterly spellbinding sonic-scape.
