One to Watch: Mr Ekow - Ekow Chamber EP
Combine an endless imagination with down-to-earth sensibilities and you've got Mr Ekow. Taking inspiration from philosophy, people watching and everything in-between, he weaves together the everyday and the fantastical in gripping and effortless rhymes.
Hailing from South London, he started rapping in 2008 and later picked up production in 2010. Often showcasing an experimental edge over electro hop landscapes, Mr Ekow continues to push the boundaries of both his ability and sound.
“After a brief hiatus and a name change (FKA Picasso), Mr Ekow is back with his 2nd project, the 6-track EP - Ekow Chamber. Take a step into his colourful mind - a place of both wild imagination and everyday realities, and listen in as he effortlessly flows over electronic infused hip hop beats provided by ChromadaData, Dobsy, Prospect and Mr Ekow himself. This existential journey is a great introduction to Mr Ekow and the common humanity we all share.
