Athlone, County Westmeath
A visionary artist at the forefront of the Irish Afrobeat scene, over the past year Sequence has delivered a string of tracks that have seen his status continue to grow. From his 2017 singles ‘TNM’ and ‘Problem (Wahala)’ to this year’s ‘Stunna’ – not to mention a cover of ‘Fisherman’ by J Hus that is approaching half a million views on YouTube – he has attracted both critical acclaim and an international audience thanks to his appearance on a number of key Spotify playlists.
This summer will see the release of his debut EP Take Time, a collection of tracks that confirms his rising status. Featuring guest turns from the likes of Jordan Adetunji and combining bass heavy beats with radio friendly melodies, the release will be trailed by the single ‘Cry’ and will be supported by shows at the Longitude and Indiependence festivals. It will be accompanied by a series of videos, once more directed by Sequence himself.
“If you’re looking for potential superstars, the tuba-voiced Sequence draws from London street sounds and his Nigerian roots while leaning towards a steel pan-driven, future-cop production style…” (Irish Times)
