25 year old Brooklyn based talent Kidepo just released his beautifully haunting EP Reunion, and I find I can’t disengage from the viscous clattering magnificence of EP cut Little Soul Little City (as well as any of the rest of the EP, to be honest). Kidepo, who as previously reported is a London born Ugandan singer songwriter and producer, offers up a thoroughly heady electro soul and R&B experience on Little Soul Little City. It’s a gossamer swirling, warped entrancing hymnal that takes us on a trip deep into the recesses of our crestfallen hearts. Kidepo’s Reunion EP is a reflection of a personal sense of displacement and transience. I feel frozen in transit myself. I’m adrift and stuck in between gradients. It’s as if the flow of time has slowed to a stop, and I don’t want it to start again, to have to figure out what comes next. I just want to stay lost in Little Soul Little City. Stream Kidepo’s new EP on Soundcloud. Purchase from iTunes, here.

Even the name “Kidepo” seems to have a champagne sophistication to it, much less the Brooklyn based, London born Ugandan singer songwriter and producer’s glossy resplendent new single, Ramada. Jonah Mutono, the 25 year old artist behind the project, presents us with sleek soulful electro R&B on the cool rippling taste from his EP, Reunion, due out April 28th. “There’s something in the water” here alright, and it’s something more than rhapsodic. Kidepo does some compelling soul searching on Ramada, which, along with the rest of the songs off Reunion, reflect on a personal sense of displacement and transience.

I stumbled upon this beautiful debut by a young Brooklyn based singer songwriter and producer by the name of Kidepo last night, and I couldn’t wait to share it with you today. Reds is a sparse, subtle, yet passionate slow burner of an electronic pop song showcasing some hypnotizing production skills and soulful vocals.
