Hagan releases debut album, 'Textures', via Python Syndicate: Listen
Bryte and Griffit Vigo are among the guest artists who've contributed to the record
Hagan has released his debut album, 'Textures'. Listen below.
Out now through Python Syndicate, the 11-track record features contributions from Bryte, Griffit Vigo, Aymos and Meron T, among others. The album, which draws on various Afro-influenced sounds, is said to be a reflection of the producer's British-Ghanaian heritage.
Speaking about 'Textures' ahead of its release, Hagan said: "Making this album has taken me on a journey of mixed feelings. I've spotted areas of development in my production process but also fine-tuned my strengths to produce a well-rounded Hagan sound. The development of the album opened my mind to previously untapped styles and pushed me out of my comfort zones.
"At its core, the 'Textures' LP is about being proud of retaining heritage and culture through music but also exploring dual identities through fusing sounds. Embracing the power of rhythm and collaboration, 'Textures' is a fine benchmark for the next."
Following the album's release, Hagan has confirmed plans for a launch party at new Peckham listening bar Jumbi. Taking place on 18th October, he will be joined at the event by 'Textures' guest artist Ayeisha Raquel, who will play live.

The release of the new album follows on from Hagan previously sharing the singles 'My Love', 'Pray For Me' and 'Sise Ntweni'.
