After a busy year of releases we are very happy to introduce the latest signing to the Audio Doughnuts stable; 21 year-old London based pianist, producer and vocalist Tuesday Born.
‘Kwabena’ – the title is the traditional Akan name given to a male child born on Tuesday – is a textured sound collage in which intricate and disparate elements of melody, percussion and voice are finely woven together into a track whose languid groove is equally suited to the bedroom and the dancefloor. Gabriel’s own vocals, jazz-based piano and African-inspired percussion dominate the B-side, ‘Minor Jam’, as Tuesday Born seamlessly incorporates live instrumentation into the electronic soundscape.
The feature video for ‘Kwabena’, which portrays a metaphorical journey through Ghana, comprises original footage edited by photographer Eddie Otchere. According to Gabriel, this audiovisual collaboration illustrates ‘not the downbeat environment that is so common to portrayals of less economically developed countries, but a vivid picture of energy’.
Tuesday Born‘s debut single Kwabena accompanied b-side Minor Jam will be released digitally worldwide on the 8th October.
