We’re proud to announce the signing of Cameroonian jazz/rock legend and creator of the Afrolectric sound, Franck Biyong! Born to Cameroonian parents, Franck grew up in Nigeria, Ivory Coast and the UK where he was able to integrate the cultures around him into his music, giving him a uniqueness never seen before. Once a major proponent of afrobeat, Franck’s passion for many styles of music has allowed him to adapt to different genres and sounds. Now delving into the world of electronic rock with a definitive African flavour, Franck’s spectacular electric guitar riffs and modern sound mean he’s certainly one to keep an eye on!
Franck will be releasing his long anticipated single, Liyomba, on the 23rd March. The songs fast-paced guitar and drum loops display that classic Afrolectric vibe he has been working to perfect throughout his career.
Over the years, Franck has released a number of successful albums and his upcoming 10th album, Moonwatching will be released later this year. The album sees him having mastered the sounds of electronica and is arguably his best and most creative work yet.
Liyomba is available for pre-order on iTunes now: http://smarturl.it/liyomba
Moonwatching, Vol. 1 will be available in all good digital stores worldwide this summer.
