Filippos debuts on Connected this May with vocalist Idd Aziz, delivering the stellar single ’Kairetu’. Greek DJ and producer Filippos is a relative newcomer to the electronic music world, with the 21 year old having found an obvious passion for the Afro House scene. It’s this passion that has led him to collaborating with Kenyan vocalist Idd Aziz on the superb ‘Kairetu’. Originally from Nairobi, Idd Aziz has established himself as one of the most interesting musical talents to break out of Africa, touring globally from the age of 15 before settling in Trondheim, Norway and releasing material via the likes of Innervision and Madorasindahouse. Now the pair come together to offer up the latest single for the Stereo MC’s Connected imprint. The mesmerising ‘Kairetu’ sees Filippos work chunky, loose drums alongside subtle melodic motifs and authentic percussive licks, whilst Idd Azi’s powerful vocals build the foundations to this dancefloor gem. The heat continues to flow with a slick breakdown and a return to the hypnotising groove as the pair drop what is a truly impressive label debut indeed.
