LONDON AFROBEAT COLLECTIVE - PRIME MINISTER EP
London Afrobeat Collective release the ‘Prime Minister EP’ featuring a remix from Los Angeles based party starter Captain Planet.
London’s hottest live band will release their highly anticipated brand new single ‘Prime Minister’ on 13th April 2014, featuring radio edits and a stunning remix from in demand US producer Captain Planet, famous for remixing the likes of Little Dragon, Erykah Badu and Mayer Hawthorne.
After the success of their 2012 debut album ‘L.A.C.’, the ‘Prime Minister’ EP, sees the 10 piece super-group hone their instrumental skill, adding elements of current political commentary to their lyrics, while enhancing the raw energy and dance floor intensity that forged their notorious reputation as a ‘must see’ live act.
New lead vocalist Funke Adeleke says of the new EP: 'Prime Minister is a dancefloor smash with lyrics written for the times and we're super psyched to have one of our favourite producers on remix duty!'
2013 saw L.A.C. take the festival circuit by storm, building on their stunning debut when Michael Eavis personally invited them to open the West Holts (formerly the Jazz World stage) at Glastonbury. The band has staged rip-roaring performances at Bestival, Secret Garden Party, Green Man, Shambala, Standon Calling and Wilderness festivals, not to mention performing tracks with indie stars Bombay Bicycle Club at Bestival, Latitude, Reading and Glastonbury.
‘Prime Minister’ cements London Afrobeat Collective’s reputation as one of the most unique and exciting bands in the UK today, and their overwhelming live performance is nothing short of awe inspiring.
