With the release of his debut album ‘Spiral, My Love’ mere weeks away, St. Lucian-born talent Poté has shared a new single from the project featuring Kojey Radical and vocalist Chelou.
After starting his career producing South African gqom and baile funk influenced tracks for Lisbon-based label Enchufada, Poté’s unique, melodic bass-heavy sound soon garnered attention from DJs and critics alike. Gorillaz star Damon Albarn, who co-produced the album’s lead track ‘Spiral’, is just one of the many artists cited as a fan of Pote’s material.
Deviation boss and recently-appointed Louis Vuitton Musical Director Benji B is another notable fan, with Benji reportedly signing the album to his Deviation Music imprint after just one listening session.
