HOMEBODY PLAYLIST: GBNGA
Author: Jaisha | Tuesday 10th November 2020
With what continues to be such an uncertain time for the arts, this year has seen a significant rise in musicians developing their sound, honing their craft and challenging the status quo. This has been made clear by North-London’s GBNGA, who is the product of a generation growing up watching The Jazzie Show. Maturing into an adolescent saw him taking pride in the introspective nature of his work with UKG, grime and funky house at the forefront of his influences.
‘Sleep’ is the latest offering from GBNGA, who says the track was made “to give you a comfort at a time where you need it”. Created in his bedroom during the lockdown, ‘Sleep’ is fuelled with a lively instrumental and a delicate vocal that embraces missing a loved one.
We caught up with GBNGA to find out what tracks he has on repeat at home.
KwolleM, DC - Woolwich Arsenal (DLR)
"I love KwolleM's new EP, C2C! Mellow grime resonates with my chill, laid backflow and caters to my love for grime. DC really went in and dropped the lyrics that I relate to. The whole C2C project feels like a journey and I also like how DC gave us insight into his mental space on this one."
