Sauti Sol is excited to release the 4th single REWIND from their Afrikan Sauce LP. The song features the Kenyan hip hop heavyweight Khaligraph Jones. The video is available on Sauti Sol’s YouTube page. This is part of their bold monthly release schedule intended to go on until the whole LP is launched.
The song has rock and roll vibes to it and is written by Sauti Sol and Khaligraph Jones, composed by Sauti Sol, Humphrey Otieno and Joe Mutoria, produced by Sauti Sol, mix and mastered by Humphrey Ndomboka. The video was shot and directed by Sesan in collaboration with South Africa’s Nate Thomas as the Director of Photography in Nairobi, Kenya
Speaking on his first collaboration with Sauti Sol, Khaligraph stated “I’ve been pushing for a collabo with Sauti Sol for about 4 years now. At that time I still wasn’t ready, until recently when I talked to Bien and Savara but I still needed to get the concept ready. One day Bien called me for a jam session, which was a first for me.”
“I have never gone through that type of music making process before with anyone and need I say it was amazing. I felt alive, the vibe was organic and we ended up recording REWIND the same day,” he added.
“Working with Khaligraph was flawless. We brought him into our world of making music where we jammed with the band first, got the desired vibe and jumped into studio immediately after. He fit right in and we had the song done the very same day. He is a phenomenal artist. The best part about an artistes’ work is seeing it get to the fans and seeing people dancing to our music.” Said Polycarp
