On the playlist: Azekel - Chronophobia
BBC Introducing Team
Azekel is the latest BBC Introducing act to be selected for our sought after weekly spot on the Radio 1 playlist. His track “Chronophobia” (which you can listen to in full below) will receive plays from Clara, Greg and Scott. Find out more about this Nigerian born, East London producer, who’s currently gearing up for a two-part release this summer.
Style: Future R&B comes in many forms, and this is the smoothest interpretation I’ve heard for some time. Combining raspy vocals with evocative lyrics, Azekel combines his background in production with his natural performing abilities in this soulful summer tune. For fans of Miguel and Frank Ocean.
You Need To Know: Azekel shared his music with BBC Introducing in London last summer and in a short time was on the radar of the national DJs at 1Xtra. After releasing his debut EP, Azekel is set to follow it up with a 2-part collection “Raw, Vol.1” that is due out on the 12th July. We look forward to seeing him on the BBC Introducing stage at Glastonbury this Friday.
