Secret Sounds are excited to bring Nigerian up and comer, Kah-Lo and British DJ/producer Riton for their debut visit to our shores this July.
In her early 20s, Kah-lo made the bold move to uproot from Nigeria to begin her life as a musician in the US. Performing in intimate spaces around New York and independently releasing tracks online she began her burgeoning career as an electro pop artist, developing her fearless brand as she went.
Meanwhile, Henry Smithson aka Riton was shaking up the club scene in the UK - delivering pulsating DJ sets, working with collaborators on genre blending sounds and concocting original productions that caught the attention of Afrobeat artists including Mr Eazi, MNEK, superstars who were clicking over serious play numbers online.
Before long - Kah-Lo and Riton linked up after flicking messages back and forth on Twitter; This was the beginning to their unique musical partnership and releasing club banger 'Rinse & Repeat' in 2016. The track was named one of the Top 10 most played songs on BBC Radio and sold 500,000 copies in the UK and clicked over 40 million streams on Spotify. Following suit in 2017 was 'Money', a track connecting Riton and Kah-Lo with Mr Eazi & Davido. It was quickly named 'Hottest Record In the World' by Annie Mac and enjoyed strong success in a number of European countries.
The pair who so easily fuse Afrobeat with steamy club-filling beats have already released successful teasers, 'Fasta' & 'Fake ID' from their forthcoming record together that will be released later in 2018.
It's time to take things offline and hit the dancefloor for an international frenzy of beats and dancing that goes deep with this intercontinental duo.
