This Week’s Hottest Brand New Act
KEY TRACK: What Do You See? (feat. Kojo Funds)
MANAGEMENT: Tolu Oluseyi
WHO: Sodamola Oluseye Desmond, better known as DJ Spinall, has been making records since 2014 and has worked with Wizkid and Mr Eazi.
WHAT: No prizes for guessing Desmond is a DJ and producer. The ‘Spinall’ part of his moniker comes from his ethos as a selector – he won’t be pigeonholed or restricted.
WHERE: DJ Spinall is from Lagos State, Nigeria.
SPINALL, I LIKE IT…
Us too. More and more people are falling for DJ Spinall. He signed with Atlantic last year and played his first London headline show just last week.
WHAT CAN I HEAR?
For the best indication of what Spinall is making right now, check out What Do You See?, which features London MC Kojo Funds. It’s a chilled out, airy take on the modern Afroswing sound.
DJ Spinall recently told Complex that Afrobeats “is everything” and that he wants the genre to get the “international accreditation and respect it truly deserves”. Watch out, world.
