Track Of The Day 23/2 – Kam-Bu


Kam-Bu is one of the most electrifying talents in the UK right now. A rapper whose work crosses multiple genres, he seems able to spray over anything, leaving his illustrious touch on a host of significant collaborations.

Recently linking with producer-du-jour p-rallel on the exuberant ‘Evening Time’, Kam-Bu lit up streaming platforms with singles ‘Eton Mess’ and ‘Pickney’.

New single ‘LIVE-O’ is built for rave use, with Kam-Bu upping the energy once more. A trailblazer of UK rap ideas, the lyrics are an ode to the free party scene, a nod from one outsider to another. Pieced together with some impeccable studio talent, the track boasts production from Tom Dinsdale and multi-genre aesthete JD Reid.

Lawless and completely liberating, ‘LIVE-O’ burns through UK music like a meteor. Kam-Bu says…

“’LIVE-O’ is a rave-ready anthem about the reigniting of adventure through the power of music, an ode to ‘free party’ culture and forest raves. The industrial sound blended tongue and cheek lyricism pointing towards the lost way of myself and the times. However, there’s something about the dance which has and always will be liberating”.
