There’s nothing like hearing a great song for the first time. When you clear the air, you know when you’ve heard one of these records. The grab you, you hit repeat and then.. they take you away. You can’t stop playing them, and at first listen, you recite the words without noticing. Kojo is one of these generational talents, as he understands music theory and makes quantifiable adjustments in his melodic selections. His voice is smooth yet powerful, and he transitions well in and out of the groove, giving the track a wonderful sense of spacing.
When listening to his latest offering “Script”. You quickly understand that the true nature of Kojo talents comes hidden behind his ability to connect with his stellar songwriting and story-telling. Script dives into a personal and heartbreaking set of developments in a relationship, yet Kojo (Stephan Appiah) finds a unique way to relay the message. For the sonic makeup of the record. The records DNA comes courtesy of a thick, synth heavy-bass. Paired with a punchy set of kicks, hi-hats and snare hits. Lastly, there’s a smooth synth based chord progression that really set the tone.
Kojo cuts through most of the sonic elements effortlessly, which makes this an easy listen. We’re excited to see what he has coming. For now, you can listen to Kojo’s latest offering “Script” in the player below. Furthermore, his latest EP “Memory Lane” will release on September 23rd so be sure to lookout for that.
