Introducing East London music makers MeaKoom and Bare Beats who have joined forces on the velvet honesty of DIY, home recorded, self released ‘Mi LP’. 

These old school friends neatly fuse MeaKoom’s Hackney-born, African-rooted, philosophical outlook on growth, self-love and the divine feminine, with lush vintage hip hop lofi from Bare Beats. 

MeaKoom has the clear, smooth and smoky voice of a storyteller. Often, she wrote the songs on the LP during sleepless nights of anxiety. It helped to process recent heartbreak and understand that if people leave, it’s for a reason. As well as to articulate her wider views on society, being a woman in this day and age, of Nigerian descent, and all the b*s of conventional beauty standards.

MeaKoom is known for her introductory track ‘Smile’ Produced by Blackmale Beats, and has gone on to Support Roy Ayers at the Jazz Cafe, as well as being a part of the Converse Rubber Tracks Introduction studio Sessions.

Bare Beats keeps the rhythm off-kilter, and the feel winding. Spacious yet emotional, minimal hip hop beats are laden with samples, glistening jazz, and thoughtful down tempo to create a refreshing take on tripped out lofi. 

This LP is a continuation to the ‘ME’ EP, which has been labeled at ‘Captivating’ by popular writers at AFROPUNK.

 Nigeria meets East London meets LA for psyche healing.
