 Introducing Lowki, a newcomer in the vibrant UK music scene. Hailing from South London, Lowki uses his own experiences and interpretations of his world and culture to shape his music. Music is both his institution and his escape. He draws inspiration from a variety of genres, cultures and artists who all contribute to the sonic versatility in his sound. Lowki's debut EP- 'I Wrote a Song About You Last Night'- was well received, most notably on BBC 1Xtra.    His latest work draws influence from his West Indian heritage as he merges his Reggae/Dancehall roots and smooth R&B vocals with the contemporary sound of Afro-Swing. Lowki’s expansion and development as an artist is inevitable, his sound is not only an extension of himself, but his vision of an entire new movement.
