AKS + Obenewa – Real Deal | New Music
Hailing from South London, Hip-Hop artist AKS teams up with the soulful songbird, Obenewa for the soul-stirring new single “Real Deal” taken from his critically acclaimed sophomore EP, Train of Thought.
Produced by frequent collaborator DemDrums, “Real Deal” paints a vivid image of AKS’ thoughts on the landscape of music and his longing for honesty and authenticity from his artistic counterparts. A medley of melancholy keys and muted saxophone riffs, the track infuses a modern day bounce with the traditional Jazz, oozing soul in a way that is fast becoming a staple for the South London native.
Obenewa’s beautifully lush vocals on the chorus really caps off this passionate track, complimenting the jazzy production as she softly interprets AKS’ penmanship and the main theme of the song.
AKS is set to perform an exclusive headline set alongside his band at next month’s UMA Horizon at The Hospital Club in London. March 7 is the date and free tickets are available here.
