Wanlov the Kubolor tells FOKN Bois & Irie Maffia Story from Akwaaba Music on Vimeo.
I love these guys, I almost forgot how much I love discovering new music...hasn't had much time for looking for new stuff. Of all the news that I hear from my old country (which is on the verge of a total economic collapse and even civil unrest), this just made my day. FOKN Bois must be the dopest export from Ghana these days and they got together with Irie Maffia, a Budapest-based band to record their album The FOKN DunaQuest in Budapest. Back in 2007, I had a chance to get up with Irie Maffia's Ghanaian-Hungarian lead singer/MC, Sena and was always curious to see where she's taking her art (check my interview with her). Fokn awesome! The remix album is up for free download!
It's been a busy year so far for Ghana’s most scandalous Afro-pop duo known as the FOKN Bois. Aside from almost causing a war between Nigeria and Ghana, touring Europe, USA and releasing the world’s first Pidgen Musical, they also managed to record an 8-track EP The FOKN Dunaquest in Budapest with ELO of Irie Maffia Production, Hungary’s leading musical force, who released it on the contemporary African label Akwaaba Music.
The story just has begun... After the success of the original EP, a 10-track remix album by the finest Hungarian and international Global Bass producers is here. Remixes from Hungary’s own Slap In The Bass, Nobody Moves, Superstereo, URH and Jumo Daddy (Irie Maffia), as well as Frikstailers, Hijo De La Cumbia, Dj Vadim, Flore and Big Dope P from the international scene. Moobahton, dubstep, cumbia, bassline to uk funky all in one solid album.
Here is the original album, it goes for $10
