Nigerian soundmaster Krizbeatz is pushing the boundaries with his new album, ADM. Leading up to this release, he's worked with artists like Runtown, Lil Kesh, and had a major success with Tekno on his hit song "Pana." The name of the project stands for "Afro Dance Music," a term that the producer coined for the genre of music he conjures. Rooted in the afropop sound, Krisbeatz brings an electronic twist to his tracks with warped, synth-y instrumentation.
"Afro Dance Music is a sound I believe in," Krizbeatz said over email. "It's taken me this far from the hit track ‘Pana’ I produced for Tekno to Winning the Producer of the Year award at the NEA (Nigerian Entertainment Awards) and releasing this body of work featuring top African Artists. I call it the New Wave — and it's only the beginning."
