Introducing The Notorious K.O.G.
The rise and rise of Mr. K.O.G. and his band of merry men over the last year has been a spectacularly tropical and frightfully enjoyable one. The Sheffield scene and beyond have most certainly been feeling the wrath of the reggae/afro-beat/dancehall/soul artist. Raving festival tents, packed club nights and ram-a-jammed music bars haven’t quite been the same since his many invasions took place.
What’s his story? Well, you’ll have to approach K.O.G. yourself to find that out. All we know is that he can rock any stage and that any tune featuring his input ends up being a certified banger.
Recently he’s released a free download featuring the vocal talents of Diddley Dee and the bass-slapping talents of Teddy JC. Produced by Tich of Off Me Nut Records/Squire of Gothos/Temple of Coke fame and mastered by Peter Junior of Analog Fidelity Records Fame. Bouncy beat. Instantly hummable. Ticks all our boxes straight off.
You may have also caught him collaborating with Sheffield reggae pioneers Riddimtion on more roots driven tracks like this…
Most of you would have caught him playing out and about with his live band the Allstar Revolution…
And if you’ve yet to catch them The Allstar Revolution themselves are in fact celebrating their 1st birthday on the 30th March at the Riverside. Live per…
Didn’t see that klaxon coming. Live performances on the night alongside the group come from Sonniballi, Dnae & the Indigo Soul Project and our very own Smiling Ivy. Superstar DJ talents from Smiley Maxx, Autograff, Jah Reynolds and Selekta Chestar. More info on that here, you’d be a F.O.O.L to miss it.
