Ekiti Sound spearheads a new musical dialogue between London and Lagos. His debut album wires novel musical circuitry into shape, soldering UK soundsystem culture, hip-hop and Afrobeat into new, haywire connections, a diverse chorus of global voices routed through its new configurations.
It’s a starkly original record, built up of layered musical histories, papered over one another into a messy, exhilarating collage of sounds.
His influences span from golden era ‘90s hip-hop to Gershwin, many of his formative influences heard through the radio, which he would – unwittingly – record and cut into what were essentially DIY edits.
The record speaks to a multiplicity of perspectives and places. In language, for one, it slides from Yoruba, to pidgin and English – spoken, rapped or sung – sometimes in the course of one song. It’s fragmented and unified all at once, cohesive in its celebration of difference. “It's a way of paying tribute to where I come from,” Leke says. “It will help circulate this name which represents the energy that my parents gave me.”
