MOVES Recordings Celebrate Fifth Anniversary With Two New Compilations


December 13, 2021

MOVES Recordings—the London-based imprint headed up by Ian McQuaid and Kofi Kyei—has just hit its fifth anniversary and to celebrate the label has dropped two care package compilations of the Afrobeats and rap anthems that have swept us away over the past decade.

The label quickly scored some big hits with tracks like Belly Squad's "Banana" and Afro B's "Drogba (Joanna)". It's been non-stop for the label ever since, including the historic The Sound Of UK Afrobeats comp, and it's now home to the likes of Naira Marley, Skengdo X AM, Offica, A92, SD Muni and more.

The two compilations trace their journey so far, taking us on a welcome trip down memory lane with throwback tracks from Kwengface, NSG, Yxng Bane, IQ and many more from their stacked roster.
