Five years after the first chapter, K.O.D shows his feelings through afro-house to offer an intense follow-up to his album Emotion.
At 32, Simbarashe Kodzai has established himself as an essential icon of Seres Produções, a label he joined almost 15 years ago. Whether he works under his nickname K.O.D or Afro Wav, the producer shapes afro-house music focused on melodies and vocals, giving the genre a pop dimension accessible to all ears. Clean, fluid and often dreamlike, the sound of K.O.D is based on our common need to convey our thoughts and our emotions, whether positive or negative. Convinced that music is the best vector to pass on this concept, the Zimbabwean ‘King of Drums’ translates this natural instinct on Emotion 2, exploring different personal feelings related to joy, love, the need for attention or the loss of a loved one.
With this new album coming from the heart, K.O.D brings together his listeners around unifying lyrics, warm African percussions and ethereal synthesizers, reminding in his own way how much human beings like to be listened to. Full of hope, Emotion 2 goes through different states and elegantly adapts the codes of afro-house of course, but also the energy of afro-tek or the deep bass of amapiano. K.O.D also surrounds himself properly with a team of talented guests made of DJ Satelite, Michael King, Kaiya, DJ Galio, Mandisa, Stewie Le Savage or Prudence Mabhena, giving his work a double strength: pleasant for domestic listening and epic for the dance floor.
