If, as the great Fela Kuti once said, ‘music is the weapon’, then you’ll need to wear armour to withstand the full sonic force of London Afrobeat Collective (LAC) – this politicised party machine are an incendiary live act who channel the spirit of the Afrobeat founder via bass-heavy rhythms guaranteed to make you move.
2013 saw LAC 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.
London’s hottest live band will release their highly anticipated brand new single ‘Prime Minister’ on 25th November 2013, 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 to name but a few.
‘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.
