Two of the most exciting names in modern music, Obongjayar and Sarz, come together to release their brand new collaboration – The Sweetness EP.
Obongjayar, whose previous collaborations include Giggs, Kamasi Washington and Danny Brown has teamed up with SARZ, known for his innovative work with the like of Wizkid, Drake, Skepta and Beyonce. Fusing synthwave, 80’s music, afrobeats and pop, this EP is genre-bending.
Speaking about the EP Obongjayar and SARZ write:
“The EP looks at the early stages of a relationship, with the ego stripped away – the vulnerability, doubt and anxiety of trying to figure out where you stand, as well as the sweetness and excitement. Those emotions normally feel like such a grey area it was exciting to explore them so directly and write like it was a film – with a clear beginning, middle and end. Sarz’ production sets the perfect mood and puts you in that zone of early expressive love and i think our two worlds merged together wonderfully” ~ Obongjayar
“I have never created a project like this before. I would describe the EP as genre bending – it fuses synthwave, 80’s music, afrobeats and pop. Different elements were blended together to create Sweetness” ~ SARZ
