From DJ Revy-B's camp
An exclusive mix by fast-rising Toronto-based DJ Revy B, “Rhythm and Afro Vol. 2” is a fitting audio testament to her West African heritage and her love of American R&B. The mix explores the mellow side of Afrobeats and artfully blends in splashes of R&B from Miguel and SZA. Music from Afrobeats megastars like WizKid and Davido sits side by side with emerging artists like Nonso Amadi, Cheeso and Amina.
In a genre with relatively sparse female representation, Revy B highlights a refreshing selection of female talent in celebration of International Women’s Month: Marquee artists like Tiwa Savage and Yemi Alade share space exciting singer/songwriter/producer wunderkinds like East London’s Nao and Simi from Lagos, Nigeria.
The mix would not be complete without shining a highlight on hometown Toronto talent such as South African soul crooner Zaki Ibrahim and Roy Woods from Drake's OVO camp. Clocking in at just over 1 hour, DJ Revy B manages to squeeze in over 50 tracks with a quick-mix style honed from countless hours rocking clubs and block parties in Toronto and beyond.
