Must listen: Kwabs

Say hello to 23-year-old newcomer Kwabena Sarkodee Adjepong (don't worry, you can call him Kwabs), who's just been put on Radio 1Xtra's Hot For 2014 list.

Possessed of a stunning, honeyed baritone, his vocals remind me of Seal when Seal was good, adding depth and soul to the swirling electronic grooves he's been creating with Dave Okuma and SOHN (Jessie Ware, Banks). Kwabs himself describes his sound as the "meeting place between elements of old-style gospel with more current sounding music". And everyone loves current sounding music, don't they?

His latest song, Wrong Or Right, is the title-track to a forthcoming EP. The video, which features some mesmerising slow motion choreography, is right here.
