Bang‘ is the latest offering from UK based artist Saijan – showcasing a new sound that Saijan himself calls ‘Afro-Garage‘. Full of uplifting, Afrobeat energy, with tantalising old school garage elements at its core tying the whole track together. – Out Now!

‘BANG‘: Starting 2021 With A Bang

Recorded and co-written with his producer, Sokari, at The Chocolate Factory Studios in London – this was the first time the pair could work together in person, after months of virtual communication. Initially planning to rework an old release, their focus was shifted, resulting in a ‘BANG‘.

Inspired by a lot of old 90s garage, Saijan decided he wanted to experiment with his sound. Listening to a mixture of different garage drumlines, he decided to add his own afro flair to the track. Working his magic and adding drill-style drums lines, giving the beat that extra bit of sauce.

Who Is Saijan?

Saijan is one of the UK’s exciting up and coming artists, creating enticing Afrobeat music – whilst adding his own spin, incorporating elements from various genres, creating something you would have never heard before.

Born in Nigeria, singer/songwriter Saijan is now based in the UK. His love for music started at an early age whilst being exposed to the infectious sounds of fuji, Afrobeats and Afro-jazz from a young age – these roots are clearly shown in the music he creates today. Always looking for a new way to merge his Afrobeat sound with different genres, Saijan doesn’t want to be boxed into one lane – and his latest release ‘BANG!’ is a shining example of this.
