Here at DopeKoto we truly appreciate beautiful music, and there’s nothing better than listening to artists producing dope tracks in new and innovative ways — especially when it’s done in a single take.

For those who don’t know, A-F-R-O is the newest kid on the block. At only 17 years old, he is literally taking the rap game by storm for his unbelievable flow. Bringing that old school flavour back into this newer generation, A-F-R-O is giving Hip-Hop heads what they’ve been missing since the early 2000s. And then there’s NGHTMRE — a rising star in the EDM (Electronic Dance Music) scene. Together at LA’s Fairfax Recordings studios, they link up to make some history.

The challenge was to record the track live in one take directly onto a 12″ vinyl record, something no artist has dared to do. ‘Stronger’ is like planets aligning from parallel universes and proof that the two genres (Hip-Hop and EDM) work so damn well together!

Hip-hop excellence meets creativity and experimentation. This is what the future holds and we certainly hope to see more of this. Check out how the recording turned out below and if you haven’t yet the short documentary of the process above!
