Having made a name for himself in the UK R&B and afrobeats scene with a series of well-received singles, Drewmula has been enjoying a meteoric rise. This summer, the South London-based artist releases his most accomplished project yet, a nine-track EP that moves confidently between UK RnB, pop and afroswing.
“Chemistry” is a debut EP that showcases a “new UK sound” masterminded by one of the nation’s hottest new talents. Inspired by the experience of natural chemistry in romantic relationships, the EP captures the narrative of this process over nine tracks that loosely chart the course of a relationship, from the initial buzz of excitement to the doubts and insecurities that can threaten any connection.
Kicking off with the breezy vibes of “STEP CORRECT”, the record moves through 2019’s radio-ready single “WANTING” to the similarly catchy “NO PALAVA”, which has received over 100k streams since the EP’s release. These tracks are punctuated by interludes that paint a detailed picture in the listener’s mind, telling the story of a new connection and following wherever it leads. With 10k monthly Spotify listeners and a fanbase that continues to expand across the globe, Drewmula is riding high on the success of his latest EP.
“Chemistry is a mixture of songs with elements from different genres that have heavily influenced me from the early stages of my music career. I’ve grown to fall in love with the sounds from Afro-Swing to UK RnB to Pop and Dancehall and I believe that my debut EP represents that.”Drewmula
“The main concept of this EP is chemistry. In the context of relationships, chemistry comes in all forms of emotion and special connection. I wanted to show two people trying to spark a chemistry between each other with interludes showing you a narrative of their process.”Drewmula
