When KWABS sings, soul pours out. His voice is richly textured and full of gravitas, an instrument of both power and vulnerability. With productions for Jessie Ware, Ghostpoet, having beautifully covered James Blake’s “The Wilhelm Scream” and lending vocals to Disclosure’s “Willing & Able” on their new album earlier this year, Kwabena Adjepong is nothing but a true artist. The Londed-based singer is currently on his LOVE + WAR and here at KALTBLUT we are offering a lucky reader tickets to see him during his Berlin show on the 23rd November at Huxley’s Neue Welt!

With KWABS’ voice placed front and center, this emotion comes through defiantly and with immense authority. On stage, he showcases his range to breath-taking effect: from the energetic house propulsion of Saved to his astonishing recasting of James Blake’s The Wilhelm Scream – and, as an encore, the delicate Perfect Ruin, performed against a stark backdrop of upright piano, which reduces the audience to pure reverence. KWABS has emerged at a time of immense creative fertility in British electronic soul – and has grabbed the attention of some of the scene’s biggest talents: both Emeli Sande and Jessie Ware have taken to twitter to express their support of him.
