Richy PitchLondon producer Richy Pitch took his production skills and relocated to Ghana for 2 years to submerse himself in some Afrobeat, Hiplife Hip Hop Ghana style and came back with a belly full of tracks and guest appearances from some of Ghanas best known and unknown lyricists spitting in English, Twi, Fante and Ga.

Mixing traditional African percussion with Richys already well established Hip Hop skills artists such as Wanlov the Kubolor, M3NSA and M.anifest fuse together in an LP that will be more than welcome on your player with their summer grooves.

The LP “Ye Fre Mi Richy Pitch” (They call me Richy Pitch in Twi) is to be released on the fine independent BBE Records in June 2010. The LP gives a nice little look into the Ghanaian music scene and is a nice introduction to that musical world if you’ve not delved in yet and mixes the traditional with the PHATness of Mr Pitchs skills with great ease.

Kick back. Rinse it loud. And if you can’t wait for the full LP, you can get the single ‘Black Star’ feat. M.anifest on Itunes or all good independent record stores. (check the fine 8 bit video that takes you back to 20 minute load times for Out Run on the Spectrum).
