Birmingham-based label Dudley Road Records have unveiled their brand-new track ‘Proposition’, a rich Afrobeats production from exciting R&B collective The.Wav set for release on 2nd March.
Since dropping their debut project DiASPORA oF SOUND in 2016, The.Wav have been working behind the scenes on new material, collaborating with producers from Africa, the US and the UK, with ‘Proposition’ taken as the lead track off their upcoming ‘4 Seasons’ EP.
“Proposition is a song that people from all cultures and nations can celebrate,” said The.Wav, a group comprised of Gregory Stutzer, Kelly Be, Cardigan & Badí. “It is also our Proposition to the world. A welcoming call to all who recognize this great shift in global music and consciousness that we are all witnessing. That’s what we’re all about.”
Adding his thoughts on the release, label owner and England footballer Daniel Sturridge described his excitement about the project, adding:
“The.Wav epitomize everything I love about music. Melodic and lyrical music that makes you sing and dance to it but what I like about them most is they have their own vibe. It’s been a pleasure to have them signed to Dudley Road Records. The song has me dancing at parties and singing in my car. I look forward to the world enjoying their music just like me and I hope you will follow and support their career along the way.”
An open minded record label that will house a catalogue of different genres, Dudley Road aims to give artists an opportunity to become successful whilst making the music they are passionate about. The label aims to incorporate a fusion of styles, with R&B, Afrobeats, Hip-Hop, house and bass-driven sounds at its core, with ‘Proposition’ produced by Nigerian producer and Wizkid collaborator, Masterkraft.
