Referring to his output as »cyberpunk R&B,« London-born singer-songwriter and producer Gozi pushes the boundaries of what can be considered pop music. Fusing bright, upbeat melodies with abrasive production, deeply personal lyrics and a super-smooth voice, Gozi offers a clear vision of where pop music is headed while processing very personal subjects through an Afro-futuristic approach. Emboldened by his experiences as a queer person of colour, Gozi’s music is aimed at queer teenagers: to uplift, support and inspire them, to show them that their experience matters and to provide them representation for building a more inclusive future. Queerness shapes Gozi’s work. So it’s hardly surprising that Gozi’s current influences – from Korean boy bands to British singer-songwriter Charli XCX to ASMR – also attest to queerness and diversity.
In 2020, Gozi received a grant of 2,000 euros to complete and promote his debut EP.
In 2021, Gozi was granted the residency in Havana, Cuba, which he will take up in 2022.
