New Album from Appietus, Ghana’s Most Prolific Beat Maker


Spend five minutes on this site and chances are that you’ll have already learned a new name or artist to keep a watch on. Hopefully, you’ve been making room on your hard drive because here’s another artist to check out. You may already be familiar with Appietus, who's been producing hit after hit of contemporary highlife music for more than a decade. The Ghanaian producer recently chose 14 tracks that he's done with some of the biggest names in highlife music (our favorite songs feature the likes of Reggie Zippy, Mike Essabel, Old Sodja and more) for a compilation that makes a great soundtrack for those backyard grill-outs and rooftop drink-ups that make summer the best season of all. Props to our friends over at Akwaaba music for hipping us to this one.

The album is available on bandcamp and iTunes, but they’re giving this track away for free, entitled "Ghana Lady" by Appietus featuring Mframa. Listen below, and then download free.
