Single review: Nubiyan Twist Featuring K.O.G. – If I Know

Fun and spirited, the latest release from Nubiyan Twist is a vibrant showcase of talented playing and creative composition. Fusing sounds of afrobeat, latin, soul, reggae and dance music, ‘If I Know’ captivates uplifting sounds that will take you back to the long nights of summer.

From the fast-paced rhythms and playful horns, this track has an energy that makes it impossible to resist dancing to. It anticipates the release of their third album Freedom Fables, out 12th March. Every song on Freedom Fables features an acclaimed guest artist, with K.O.G (K.O.G & The Zongo Brigade/Oninpa) delivering soulful vocals and rapping for ‘If I Know’.

The lyrics embrace a cool optimism, with K.O.G describing them as entailing the need ‘to respect everybody and to let them do their thing’. During these long cold nights, it is the perfect track to vibe around your makeshift living room dancefloor with a homemade margarita. You can do this on 30th March where Nubiyan Twist will be performing a live stream album launch from the Islington Assembly Hall.

‘If I Know’ is out now on Strut Records
