SCROLL DOWN


“I WANT TO TEAR DOWN THE BARRIER THAT SEPARATES AFRICAN MUSIC FROM THE MAINSTREAM. I WANT TO GET INSIDE THAT SPACE AND BRING ENOUGH AFRICAN FLAVOR IN THE ROCK N' ROLL WORLD TO CREATE A DISTINCTIVE SOUND.” 

- FRANCK BIYONG

 




NEW SINGLE "LIYOMBA CHURCH" 
Out September 2016

"Liyomba Church" opens with high-energy screeches and thumps
that won't let you go. It's a fervent and unabashed call to dance,
an astonishing afro/pop crossover aiming for the clubs.

Liyomba Church's fast-paced guitar and drum pairing reveal the Afrolectric
ambitions he's been developing for the past 10 years, drawing influences
from rock, electro and experimental sounds.

FRANCK BIYONG’S 11TH ALBUM, “MOONWATCHING 2"...coming soon...spring 2017
 



   END OF THE ROAD

 

  END OF THE ROAD
Franck Biyong’s single paves way for an Afrolectric invasion

  

Not everyone fits the mainstream. Some are misfits, outsiders or eccentrics that let the freaks flag fly. Cameroonian musician Franck Biyong pushes forward his Afro futuristic experimentation with a new single entitled END OF THE ROAD” in collaboration with Kenyan DJs/producers BH and Andy Bolo.

A noisy psychedelic work with its pulsing seesaw riffs, layers of guitars and up-to-date rhythmic sensibility, END OF THE ROAD sounds like the current world state has been layering on the record. It’s also the last preview of the forthcoming afro-electro-rock album MOONWATCHING (to be released just a week after this second single), a marked departure from the growing mainstream of modern African beats aiming at primary dancefloors

Franck Biyong strongly believes there must be a different understanding of what the electronic sounds and beats can offer, and how we should manipulate these to broaden the potential range of our expression.

The new futuristic sound explored on MOONWATCHING, with tension and release as the focal points, changes the listener’s perception of what’s possible or not — and proves that the only limitations we have in terms of sounds and artistic expression are our own.
