By day, Bimbi Philips, is your average I.T consultant worker in London, going about his daily business. But once the clock hits five, Bimbi transforms into a vibrant afrobeat artist, blending his genre with elements of EDM, house and dancehall. By combining natural sounding African-Fuji instrumentation and Philips' classic afrobeat vocals with a contemporary western sound, Bimbi is making his music accessible to listeners of all backgrounds.
Now, Bimbi is back with his latest infectious single 'Lamba' which you can watch the video for here:
'Lamba' is a lively, beat-heavy track that is driven by Bimbi's infectious vocals and backed up by a simple, yet highly effective bass line. Breezy wah-filled guitars make a fleeting appearance along with expertly timed backing vocals that complete the texture of Bimbi's style.
Bimbi's objective is simple: to entertain audiences from all over the world with mind blowing musical experiences that they will never forget. Couple this with an exciting live prospect and his motivational, committed attitude to creating music in his spare time, and you have a potent musical combination. For example, Bimbi's performance style and delivery is characterised by the lessons that persistence, patience and perseverance have taught him, but he is also accompanied by two vibrant backing dancers who bring his shows to life with their lively choreography, acting and backing vocals. Inspired by the legend of afrobeat music, Fela Kuti and his dancers known as the 'Kalakuta Queens', Bimbi looks into the heart of his genre to crank his music up a notch.
Bimbi's vocals are rooted within the tunes of Fela Kuti and whilst his melodies are inspired by R&B duo P-Square. His musical bounce can be compared to Wayne Wonder's easy flow, whilst he never fails to entice the international market by carefully infusing EDM rhythms used by the likes of Major Lazer, DJ Snake, David
Guetta and Calvin Harris.
The Nigerian born artist has taken time to carve out his own niche within a highly-saturated musical world, mastering the intricacies that define his craft. As a result, 'Lamba' is an accessible track for lovers of any music; especially those who like to dance and throw some shapes.
