Lack of Afro – Bad Ass Self (LOA Records) 

Release Date: Out Now

The hugely talented Lack of Afro (aka Adam Gibbons) is back and this time he’s brought New York rapper Kenzo along for the party. ‘Bad Ass Self’, as you might imagine, is the kind of track that gets you pumped up for a night out so if you’re emerging from your corona-cocoon then get this one on your playlist. A big ol’ bass line from the Motown Soul playbook, subtle guitar flicks and a tight-ass rhythm punctuated by a low-slung brass section create the kind of funk playground that Ronson and Mars would kill for. Kenzo tells you all about getting down with his bad ass self and not only do you believe him, you want to be taking notes on just how he managed it. Noice.
