The seven-member London collective spit flames on this new EP...

10.01.19, Words by: Felicity Martin

Bala Bala Boyz are a London-based collective of seven MCs of Congolese descent – and together they spit in a heavy blend of Lingala and English, or “Linglish”.

New EP ‘Bana Zamba’ finds the crew as hype as ever, throwing out dynamic lyrics over bone-snapping production courtesy of Reuben G. The brains behind Kallida festival, Reuben met the Boyz while working as a studio engineer at an Acton youth centre.

It arrives on More Time Records, who’ve lately churned out a constant stream of globally-eyeing heat in the form of music from Dismantle, Bryte, and percussive brilliance from label boss Ahadadream.
