MUSIC: SILVASTONE - "AFFIRMATION" EP (Brand New And Out Now!!!)




AFFIRMATION is seductively packed to the brim with assorted Afro flavours expertly conjured up from his trademark recipe of 

African Beats seasoned in UK Sounds and Influences lovingly simmered in Global Melodies.

After an inventive series of releases that has seen the talented artist/producer/songwriter already tease and serve up 4 singles 

off this project over the last month it is now all finally available in full. 

His third EP project kicks off with a mellow and infectiously tasty Sierra Leone inspired appetiser, “Form Pan Me”, 

where he questions the intentions of his love interest. 

By track 2 we find ourselves transported to East Africa in his “Push Up” collaboration with Kenya’s fast-rising superstar singer/rapper, Steph Kapela. 

As we’ve come to expect from SILVASTONE this already much favoured banger 

seemlessly mashes a multitude of genres including Hiphop, R&B, Dancehall and Afropop.

He goes solo with third track “Pikin” where he propositions his intended fiance whilst effortlessly charming her mother. 

Production duties here are by Ghanaian beatsmith Umagar 

who also stays on beat for the next track, “Move Body” - a bouncy banger that the dancers in all of us will love. 

The vibe switches again on “By My Side” with its co-producer Ayo-Beatz doubling-up on vocal contributions too. 

Their collaborative effort evidently borrows from mid-naughties US hiphop/R&B influences to flip into that UK Afro Sound. 

An undeniable certified banger that is already gaining heavy radio traction on air and online. 

And just when your ears thought they had figured the saucy formula 

SILVASTONE completely switches the soundscape and vibe with the "Susannah". 

His half-Ghanaian heritage is fully evident in this self-produced modern twist of high-life for 2018. 

Sealing the project is his third collab with Africa’s hiphop heavyweight, Sarkodie. 

“Real Love” really takes the Ghana hiphop king to fresh sound pastures with 

an eargasmic love song weaved over trappy Afro beats and wavy soulful vibes. 

SILVASTONE affirmatively delivers a well-rounded body of work masterfully produced for a variety of moods! 

As suggested by the title of this third EP also intentional here is for the superstar multi-talent to 

formally cement his position in the diaspora as one of Africa's most formidable music creators.
