Summer is slowly creeping upon us, the longer days and warm weather is positively changing everyone’s mood. One of my favourite parts of summer is BBQs, great food, great company and foremost great summer tunes. Blitz the Ambassador just released the single Make You No Forget to his upcoming album Afropolitan Dreams and it is for sure a summer jam. The infectious afro beat just gets you jammin, you automatically start nodding to the beat. Blitz’s skillful delivery with his conscious lyrics fit perfectly over the highlife hiphop sound. The album will drop on April 28, 2014 and features some music heavyweights such as Seun Kuti, Nneka, Angelique Kidjo, and a few others. Get your summer vibes early and pick up this album.
The Mos Def cut “They celebrate my jams in foreign lands” sums up how I feel about the new Blitz the ambassador EP on Jakarta. The Ghanaian born emcee has enlisted a multitude of international artists to help support this EP. You get to hear 20Syl from France, Emicida from Brazil, and his fellow Ghanaian countryman Sarkodie. The Warm up EP has this afro-beat sound that has this swing that will get your head bobbing. There is no question about the talent that Blitz the ambassador has, his flow is tight and his lyrics are conscious and meaningful. The EP can be downloaded for free, so don’t waste a minute and cop it.
