Grammy Award winning artist and multi-instrumentalist Venna has released his sophomore EP, ‘Equinox’, as well as dropping off a visual for one of the tracks, ‘Misty’, featuring Knucks. The six track EP features a host of collaborations from both sides of the Atlantic as Venna shows why he is so highly regarded as a producer and musician in general.

‘Equinox’ was teased by the release of ‘Casa Lopez’ which saw Venna link up with US heavyweights Masego and Mick Jenkins. The new project also contains features from JADA, as well as Yussef Dayes, Marco Bernardis & Rocco Palladino. Venna received a Grammy for his work on Burna Boy’s ‘Twice As Tall’ record, and has been going from strength to strength ever since.

Speaking on his latest release, Venna said:

“Equinox represents balance for me. Making this record was a beautiful process of seeking equilibrium in all aspects of life, whether it’s music, social or the emotions of life. I was touring the world for majority of last year while constructing Equinox so the process was already quite strenuous. Balancing shows, travelling & studio is all things that I’ve always dreamt of but in the heat of doing all of them, it can be intense at times. Equinox proved to me how composed & dedicated to the cause I am, making sure no page is left unturned. “

One of the most exciting musical talents this country has to offer, Venna looks set to elevate himself to the highest status following the release of his EP. His music is rich and layered and his choice of collaborators demonstrate his ear for purposeful, quality music.
