Afrologic consists of Temi Oyedele, Gboyega Oyedele aka Eddie Gee, O ‘Pedru and Willy Bestman. They set out in 2002 to create an incomparable sound through the fusion of native African instruments, electronic music, and Afrobeat. Since then they released several EPs, worked with artists both from Nigeria and abroad, e.g Keziah Jones, Tony Allen, and Wunmi Olaiya, and were commissioned by the FELABRATION team to do a remix of Fela Kuti’s “Viva Nigeria Viva Afrika” in 2010, and Fela Kuti/Roy Ayers "Africa Centre Of The World", 2012. Afrologic are unafraid to push the borders of conventional African music, delivering a remarkable ‘futuristic’ Afro sound.
