The British RnB & Hip-Hop group from west london will be performing at the MEGA beach party event of Kavos ! The Sandstorm beach party organisers have yet again amazed us with their announcement of WSTRN to perform at the Bamboo beach club ! There is alot of competition this summer from the major event venues but it appears that the Sandstorm crew puts their money where their mouth is and they have scored some major performance acts for their artist lineup this summer. The ultimate beach party is living by it's name, ULTIMATE, artists such as Marc Kinchen, Paul Van Dyk, Calvin Harris & Clean Bandit have honored the beach party with their perfomances and the title ULTIMATE is rightfully theirs.
About WSTRN, they are an English West London-based collective consisting of Akelle Charles, Haile and Louis Rei. Their debut single, "In2", was released on 13 October 2015 and peaked at number 4 on the UK Singles Chart. Louis Rei was formerly known as LB, Akelle was formerly known as A-Star and is Haile's cousin. Haile has featured on several tracks, including "Can't Blame Me" by Nines.
They were each raised on a dizzying array of popular genres and styles and it shows in ‘In2’, their debut track together, which charged up to number ten on the Shazam Urban UK chart shortly after they released it on YouTube. It’s as spacious, psychedelic and immediately gratifying as ILoveMakonnen, as emotive and effortless as Drake, yet it resists any comparisons thrown at it. It is quite simply a British banger. It was ‘In2’ that actually brought WSTRN together. While ‘In2’ rapidly built a fanbase and brought its creators together, it’s certainly not the apex of their writing abilities. Any one of their songs features a club-baiting hook.
Trying to put WSTRN into words is about as futile as trying to box them up and simply market them as a reiteration of something that’s come before. It’s the music that guides them.
Ultimately, WSTRN’s music is the celebration of life and we are inviting you to join their festivity at the Sandstorm beach party this summer on Thursday the 22nd of June !
