Following the release of his recent critically-acclaimed track “Be My Lover” Tobi Sunmola comes through with his new EP “Good Guys Don’t Survive”, released 26th October on iluvlive records. With a recent EP launch party in association with NOTION MAGAZINE, Tobi continues to cement himself as a bonafide rising star.
Tobi is of Nigerian origin, but moved to Manchester at the age of sixteen in which his passion for music developed at his local youth centre studio. Receiving support from local press including the THE METRO and MANCHESTER EVENING NEWS, Tobi’s talent was supported from day one. Since this, the young artist has been named as MOBO’s ‘One to Watch’, as well as being championed by notable BBC R1 DJ’s including Huw Stephens and Mistajam.
Working with some of the brightest emerging names in the in the game including Joe Hertz, Bipolar Sunshine and Wretch, Tobi has continued to build presence as the face of the Reebok Classic Collective alongside Lotto Boyzz and Snoochie Shy. As part of the campaign, Tobi ran a workshop in Manchester on August 21st where one emerging artist was selected to perform alongside Tobi at the upcoming Reebok Classic Collective Party in London in December.
With this 6-track body of work flowing through dark basslines and existential lyricism with serious flow capabilities, the innovation and experimentation will conjure relevant comparisons to the likes of Bipolar Sunshine as much as to Kojey Radical. The EP’s leading track “Not The One” prepares listeners for nothing but good vibes through the ever so funky beat. With two headline shows announced for November - Manchester’s Soup Kitchen on 14th and London’s Servant Jazz Quarters on 20th, get ready to hear a lot more from this rising star in 2019.
