NoKliché, a music and culture project based out of Montreal, are proud to release their debut EP. With their roots firmly placed in Congo, the group has aptly titled the project Ebandi, which means “It has begun” in Lingala the Bantu language spoken throughout the majority of Congo.
The 3 track EP features head-bobbing beats that have that trademark NoKliché vibe, sure to pop off even the classiest of parties. “Les Robes du Soir” is a methodically laid out, spacey track inspired by the fast-growing minimalist future bass movement. Next is a bass heavy remix of Imogen Heap’s, “Little Bird”,which has been a highly anticipated release since being featured in their “NoKliching” documentary trailer, and has been tearing up crowds when played in their live set.
Following is “Up (Shoressound)” which is based on a crisp flip of Sisqo’s classic “Thong Song” and has a guest feature from local rapper Gabe ‘Nandez, who lays some smooth bars with his trademarked unorthodox flow.
As implied by the title, this is only the beginning for this young group and it provides a platform for their continued growth.
