Filippos debuts on Connected this May with vocalist Idd Aziz, delivering the stellar single ’Kairetu’.
Greek DJ and producer Filippos is a relative newcomer to the electronic music world, with the 21 year old having found an obvious passion for the Afro House scene. It’s this passion that has led him to collaborating with Kenyan vocalist Idd Aziz on the superb ‘Kairetu’. Originally from Nairobi, Idd Aziz has etablished himself as one of the most interesting musical talents to break out of Africa, touring globally from the age of 15 before settling in Trondheim, Norway and releasing material via the likes of Innervision and Madorasindahouse. Now the pair come together to offer up the latest single for he Stereo MC’s Connected imprint.
Given he is well-versed in the genre, we have asked him to share his top 5 afro house records. Enjoy the playlist below.
Always coming back to Glenn Underground. He is a pioneer of our Afro House scene. Combining House, Jazz and Afro style. He is one of the reasons of Afro House genre evolution. This one is my fav.
Rampa is always a step ahead. Fresh and powerful sounds coming out from his tracks with amazing percussions and unique vibes. This is the evolution of our scene
I’m not sure if there is a DJ out there that plays Afro and never played this gem, with Dele Sosimi voices and Laolu point of view we have as a result a track that will stay ”a long long time” with us. I will always love to play it.
Keinemusik..not much to say for this guys. Pure and unique style in every of their releases. ”Muye” is one of the best songs I’ve ever heard. Melancholic vibes with a drop that going straight to your heart. Another track that I can hear in 50 years from now. History made right here.
When Black Coffee and Toshi join forces we can’t have as a result something less than perfect. Toshi conveys a feeling of sadness and sorrow with her amazing voice and Black Coffe builds an amazing musical environment with his enormous sounds. One of the best Afro House tracks out there.
