When Los Angeles’s Love Ghost made their new song “Dopeman,” they mixed the raw energy of alternative rock with the pounding beats of Afrobeat in a way that is both bold and surprising.
Ghanaian musician Camidoh and DJ Switch Ghana, who is also from Ghana and has great turntable skills, work together on this international project. It has a rhythm that is both creative and addictive.
There isn’t just one type of music that Love Ghost wants to play. That’s what the band’s mysterious lead singer and author, Finnegan Bell, wanted.
Cory Batchler, Daniel Alcala, and Daniel Gallardo play multiple instruments in Bell’s band. They make noises that are different from what you usually hear. They are brave and skilled when they put together their music, which has a lot of different styles.
The artistic trip to Mexico led to the release of the incredibly honest song “Left On Read” with Wiplash, a Mexican singing powerhouse.
Love Ghost hasn’t just sat back and taken all the credit for what they’ve done. The band’s never-ending search for new sounds has taken them to the borders of West Africa, where they have mixed with Camidoh’s real Afrobeat and DJ Switch Ghana’s lively energy, which both make the listening experience better.
“Dopeman” is a mix of Camidoh’s “Sugarcane” or sweet music and Love Ghost’s dark rock story. The crazy freestyling by DJ Switch takes it to a whole new level. There’s more to “Dopeman” than just a song. It’s a mix of different kinds of music that brings the sweetness of Camidoh’s “Sugarcane” into Love Ghost’s dark rock story.
There is a PR effort for the song that goes from the busy streets of Nigeria to the busy towns of the UK. The song came out before the TikTok dance became popular. Also, soon there will be a beautiful music film with all three of them in it.
You can see in the background that Love Ghost and Tim Skold, who has worked with Marilyn Manson, are making a song together.
This project is being run by Metropolis Records. When Love Ghost’s next album comes out, it will show how hard they work and how clever they can be. It is going to be great.
With “Dopeman,” Love Ghost has shown they are not only renowned musicians but also leaders of a new musical trend that traverses genres.
The heavy strum of rock is mixed with the beat of afrobeat to make a tune that fits with the world’s rhythm. Prepare to be amazed by the magic they work.
