The man of the moment, Kevin Blackmore, is doing it for the love!
The love of the culture that has proliferated every crevice of the globe, it’s bigger than Hip-Hop, it’s all about Hiplife! Hiplife, i.e. music of various styles Made In Ghana!
On this self-financed non-profit debut from NVNT, we get a taste of 13 artists/acts (including N-Dex, Myth, Mystery Knacks, Ghetto Rep, Kochoko, D-Black, Kwaku T & Reggie Rockstone + more) showcasing styles & influences from Highlife, R&B & the Hip-Hop genres.
Exposure: The Mixtape looks to showcase the many “talents” of various local artists, popular & obscure ones alike.
NVNT Studios are Kevin Blackmore, Raphael Quarcoo & Toby Gloge!
100% for the execution of the idea. Looking forward to their next offering already!
One can definitely find fault with some of the music, but hey there’re definitely fun tracks on here!! The genre is in it’s infancy, it only started crawling, let’s support Hiplife as it evolves & grows to become a bonafide genre in its own right & not thrown in with the genre for any act from Africa… “World”.
“I say my GH boys put your hands up/ I say my GH girls put your hands up!/ and just rock with it!”
