Gafacci EP listening at The Warehouse

On the last Friday of January our buddies from Accra city nice hosted a listening session with pioneering afrobeats producer Gafacci. He shared some songs off his latest extended-play titled “Face the wall”. The EP is a five track body of work that give us a glimpse into immense and diverse talent the famous producer has for his craft.

A man of many talents, Gafacci told a rather somber story of the hurdles he had to overcome during the early phases of his music production career. A testament to the challenges music producers face in this part of the world; Gafacci took us back to the time when he had produced hits songs for artists like Dee Money, D-Black, Chase and the like yet had nothing concrete to show for in terms of financial stability. The place he lived at the time was directly opposite the wall of the L.A presby school, where students would shout out his name whenever they see him pass by(him being famous & all). Hence the idea behind the name of the EP “Face the Wall

He also touched on the business side of music and what is takes to thrive in the industry. Alluding to the fact that he gets 90% of his revenue from online music company bandcamp, he encouraged folks in his line of profession to know how to use whatever tools that are at their disposal to monetize their work. “Producers in this space who are respected are those who know how the politics within the system works”, he said. Also, the interactions with the audience birthed a vague idea of a platform for various producers across the country showcasing their music for like-minded folks.

As usual Maweuna & co held down the fort nicely, asking really interesting questions, and engaging with the audience too. All in all it was a fun night with drinks and laughter all round. We are so looking forward to the next listening session CHALE!

Playlist Session with Shefroyan & Teochronic

Dance and movement has always been a part of music and rhythm, thus we turned our shop space into a make-shift studio with eccentric professional dancers Shefroyan & Teochronic. So, Instead of having mirrors like the way various indoor dance studios have, our display Windows became an impromptu screen for folks to see how the ladies got down(very sure they could see themselves from the inside aye!!). Dancing in a way connects the movement of bodies to the numerous vibrations coursing through this plane of existence, and yes these ladies showed us that. They even had quick dance tutorials for those in the mood to move & shake their bodies(We didn’t come here to play oo). As usual the house rules applied, drinks in hand and attentive ears to what the heck was going on. Their playlist included everything from the Afrobeats to old school Hip-Hop, which in a way captures how dance worms its way into all forms of expressive art. All in all, it was a really dope event and we look forward to doing something like this sometime soon. Thank you Ladies!

HipHop Playlist session with Yoyo Tinz

Our Hiphop playlist sessions with Accra City Nice are always lit!(No doubts about that!!), this time around we had Yoyo Tinz come through on the 4th of October with some jamming songs on their playlist. Honestly, it was kind of like a pre-jam party to the Yoyo Tinz festival that happened afterward. We got to listen to some new music from upcoming artiste Afrochale also from the Yoyo Tinz camp, yup! it was definitely good vibes.

Another Hip Hop in Ghana Playlist feat. DJ Vimtinz & Temple

Our team in collaboration with our cultural influencer friends from Accra City Nice put together a playlist listening session dubbed “Hip-Hop in Ghana playlist”. The idea was to have a block-party style listening session where the audience gets to jam and rave to mad Hip-Hop tunes. Turns out that’s exactly what happened; the situation was LIT!!. We had cool and virtually new acts like Kwadjo Spiri, Jo Esko, Yung Bazz among others come to perform much to the pleasure of the crowd. Temple of Pata Camp took us through some of his favourite Hip-Hop songs and kept the energy high with his dope freestyle performances. All in all, it was a really good event and the folks that came through left the place with a memorable experience etched in the back of their minds. A podcast of the discussion we had during the event is available on the Accra City Nice Soundcloud page.

 

 

 

 

Yoga and Soul feat. Irene Donati and Ria Boss

We had a really interesting playlist session with yoga instructor Irene Donati of Yoga For Unicorns and the Queen of GH Soul, Ria Boss. They gave an insightful look into how yoga is practised (with a few breathing lessons obviously), a conversation on life, love & music as well as a smooth serenade from Ria Boss herself. It was a night of fun, music and drinks bringing the month of June to a beautiful end.
