Afro Sensei has been putting his own idiosyncratic spin on electronic music since the release of his debut EP Bougie Beats in 2014. 2016's deep house-influenced After Hours LP came next, followed by the trap electronic style of 2018's Let The Beat Breathe. Equal parts dance, R&B and pop, his second album The Joy Fantastique focused on the ups and downs of love.
Released in the fall of 2021, Afro Sensei's latest album B.G.C., deals with themes of LGBT pride ("Love Takeover," "Supercaliswagalistic") and loss, both romantic ("Little Waves," "Elephant") and platonic ("Full Circle," a tribute to a friend lost to covid). A remix of single "Love Takeover," has currently racked up more than 20,000 streams on Spotify. B.G.C. Remixed, a collection of singles remixed by Afro Sensei himself as well as artists Zetroc and Decycle, will be out in late summer.
Sensei is also the host of The Afro Sensei Show, a biweekly live show featuring music videos and interviews with LGBTQ artists.
