Off The Meds self-titled LP out now via Studio Barnhus

Not long after Kamohelo Khoaripe moved to Stockholm from his nascent Johannesburg he met Adrian Lux, Carli Löf and Måns Glaeser, three local DJ-producers, all veterans of the small, tightly-knit, constantly evolving Swedish club scene, and together formed the band Off The Meds.

The story goes… A recording of Kamo’s voice (a freestyle he doesn’t recollect performing) was played in a studio where Adrian, Carli, and Måns happened to be, and Kamo was soon invited to a joint session, resulting in the first proper Off The Meds recording: Low-slung, Ethio-jazz sampling hip-house gem Currency Low, one of the standouts on Axel Boman, Kornél Kovács and Petter Nordkvist’s 2018 label compilation Studio Barnhus Volym 1.

The band’s Studio Barnhus Volym 1 appearance was followed by a 2019 solo release on the label – the ravey smash single Belter, which came paired with a much-lauded remix by London top selector Joy Orbison.

Their self-titled debut album arrives on Studio Barnhus today. The first album single Karlaplan was recently played by Four Tet on Benji B’s show on BBC Radio 1, while the second single Wena got included in hotly tipped UK garage reformist Conducta’s Resident Advisor podcast.
