Loshh drops debut EP ÍFARADÁ

Loshh released his debut EP ‘ÍFARADÁ’ this week via independent label TENNNN.

Loshh is Nigerian, born in the Netherlands and currently based in London.

‘ÍFARADÁ’ is a meandering, contemplative release produced entirely by Santiago Morales. Morales and Loshh holed themselves up at Morales’ home in London during the first UK lockdown to work on the release.

The release takes notable inspiration from artists like King Sunny Ade and Fela Kuti. Loshh says, “The EP is about perseverance through everything in today’s world, and the adversity that comes with race identity and poverty. Migration and displacement can break someone’s spirit if they are not reminded of who they are. It’s about finding my footing as a Black man within a white supremacist world and how to dismantle it without compromising my own identity.”

Listen to lead single ‘Ko Si Mo’ below.
