Track of the week goes to the lively and seductive afrobeat stylings of Bimbi Philips with his latest single ‘Lamba’.
Although he considers himself an afrobeat artist at heart, Bimbi isn’t afraid to experiment and think a little outside the box, often delving into the worlds of dancehall, EDM, house and soca.
As an I.T consultant during the day, Bimbi balances his busy life, working on his real passion of music on his nights off. Leading a ‘double life’, so to speak, can hardly be easy but Bimbi’s innate determined and motivated personality allows him pursue his career in music whilst still holding down a 9-5 job.
For those of you who get the chance to see Bimbi live, you’re sure to not leave disappointed: with his ‘Fela Kuti’ inspired backing dancers and energetic stage presence, consider yourselves lucky if you manage to catch him.
Inspired by the likes of R&B duo P-Square, Bimbi has also been compared to the likes of Wayne Wonder and he keeps his sound contemporary and relevant by infusing EDM rhythms akin to Calvin Harris, Major Lazor and DJ Snake into his music. Well worth checking out if you feel like throwing some shapes!
