Kwamie Liv hails from Copenhagen, Denmark and recently put out the first 2 tracks from her upcoming EP on soundcloud; a cover of The Weeknd’s ‘What You Need’ and the Lana Del Rey-channelling ‘5AM‘. Initial reaction has come from Giles Peterson on Radio1 and, bizarrely, Sudan’s Capital radio station who have her on rotation.
More interestingly, Kwamie is the latest artist on the roster of NYC-based manager Le’Roy Benros, famed for discovering Das Racist, Angel Haze and new star of NYC hip hop, the NAS-approved Bishop Nehru.
Shout out also to Kwamie’s production partner Baby Duka. Well worth checking him out too.
