Congolese rapper Alec Lomami this week releases ‘Quelques Mots Suffisent’, the first of four EPs he has planned for the second half of 2015.

Lead track ‘Trouble Anxieux’ finds him in a dark mood, as he explains: “I was in a pretty dark place of existential crisis when I wrote the song. The song is a part of my own catharsis and exorcism of personal demons”. And while his lyrics might be in French, you don’t need a particularly studied grasp of the language to pick up that mood from the track.

Featuring guest vocals from Karun Mungai and Sony Base, production on ‘Trouble Anxieux’ is handled by Olugbenga (no stranger to the CMU Approved column), who matches the brooding tone of Lomami’s lyrics perfectly.
