new release > digital EP by Cameroon producer Nkom Bivoué – ‘Before Zeun Ya Yop’, afrohouse, gqom & afro bass

New digital release on Rebel Up Records.

Nkom Bivoué is a young Cameroon DJ/Producer based in the capital Yaoundé. After obtaining his master’s degree in Financial Management and Accounting, he decided to focus on music production. In 2016 he effectively started to learn computer assisted music. Six months later he produced his first demos (beats). It is only in January 2019 that he publishes his very first professional single, “Akelekui Tche” which in his native Beti language (one of the main languages of Cameroon) means “Until Morning”. He then released a second single, “Interstellar Anthem” with Austrian label Leisure Music Production in August 2019. After the release of several remixes in late 2019 and early 2020, he released his very first EP, “From The Stars” (6 tracks). hn august 2020 he released a track on the African Electronic Diaspora compilation on Rebel Up and he ended that year with a new EP, “Processus” and a single “No Lele”, in collaboration with the Ghanaian vocal artist Sizeless.

His new EP “Before Zeun Ya Yop” serves as a taste to his forthcoming album Zeun Ya Yop, which is filled with afrohouse, gqom, bass and afro EDM, to be released in July on his own Bandcamp artist page, follow him here >>
nkombivoue.bandcamp.com

Nkom Bivoué’s style is singular and new, which consists of mixing the rhythms and grooves of various African cultures with the sounds of EDM. But it is much more than Afro EDM, in fact it is his own unique Afro Euphoric Dance Music. He does not follow the trend, but listens to his heart and soul to generate unique emotions, through beautiful melodies. These oscillate well between festive,dancing moods and those inspiring or even meditative. As he likes to say, he is a “free thinker” and is even more so when it comes to creating and editing music. He often adds to this by saying “I don’t follow the trend but I do what I feel”. It is in this order of ideas, that he created a whole rather intriguing persona, where he represents a being, Extraterrestrial native of a distant planet called Sirún. He considers his fans as Sirúnians.
