In a time of racial and political divide, IAmKofi explores the threads that bring humanity together, releasing ‘a snapshot of the current state of the planet’ via the mini, TRILOGY EP
Encompassing the tracks: Future Interlude, Love Vibration, and Deep Within. The release is accompanied by a short film exploring the current sociopolitical climate. IAmKofi takes a snapshot of humanity in 2017 and provides a fitting soundtrack to the worlds current conundrum. It was directed By Stuart Parris. Kofi first added Audio Visual mixing to his repertoire after creating a mix for Sony Records, for the late Michael Jackson’s ‘Invincible’ European album launch. After seeing the finished product, Kofi’s mind was open to the endless possibilities of AV mixing. In 2010 Kofi’s audiovisual experience was integrated into the Gorillaz Sound System (the official Gorillaz DJ Sets), and he also put together a DJ band for Kelis’ All Hearts World Tour, covering the US leg dates and European Festivals. Kofi first bought his first DJ set-up in 1990 which led to him performing at small parties in London and his hometown of Liverpool, he was crowned Technics UK Mixing Champion in 1995.
At the turn of the Millennium Kofi revisited a style of DJing that he first started in the early 90’s, now known as the mash-up. In 2000 he released a mix album ‘Its been a long time’, which became a blueprint for the style. Over the last 10 years, Kofi’s turntable wizardry and innovative selections have taken him to over 40 countries, having residencies in Russia, Greece, Switzerland, and the UK. He was the sole DJ at the first MTV Africa awards, and has gone on to perform at an eclectic range of parties including Coldplay’s ‘End of World Tour Party’ at Wembley Arena, Blur’s Hyde Park comeback concert after-party and the Williams sisters’ Wimbledon championship parties. Kofi now brings his audiovisual creativity full circle with the release of the Trilogy.
