Well-known music producer Eduardo Riobo, who is better known in the music spheres as ESB, is making waves again.

The Walvis Bay-based music virtuoso recently released his latest track “Hey Mami”.

He collaborated with Space (Rivaldo van den Heever) on the single which is about a boy who tries to convince a girl to love again.

“We all know the feeling of being crushed. This is basically capturing that emotion of deciding to try and love again,” explained ESB.

The song can be streamed and downloaded on ESB’s Reverbnation account.

The producer has worked with acclaimed artists over the years including 2017 NAMAs Best Newcomer of the Year, Jaleel (Ian Brendell), and 2020 NAMAs Best Rap/Hip Hop nominee Lioness (La-Toya Mwoombola).

Most notably, he recently worked on several songs on Monique English’s latest album, Red. This led to English receiving two nods for the 2020 NAMAs: As Best Afropop (including Township Disco) and Best Female Artist of the Year.

ESB said that he is “over the moon” about being an integral part of this feat.

“I have thought about this moment ever since I started my musical journey. I feel truly blessed and more motivated to continue making great music. The best part of it is the fact that I could make everyone who has supported me proud. This is an intensely gratifying feeling,” said Riobo.

He thanked everyone who has supported him on his journey so far.

When approached for a comment, English said that she found it easy to work with ESB.

“We developed a good understanding from the start with some good chemistry between artist and producer. It's essential that an artist and a producer build a good relationship and understand each other.”

English, who is now an independent artist, won the 2017 NAMAs Female Artist of the year award and also the 2018 NAMAs Best Single award.

“I am picky with who I work with and very particular about my sound as an artist.

“When I received the first beat, which was for the song ‘Red’, from him, I knew he knew exactly what I wanted my sound to be like.”

According to English she just told ESB what she wanted, and he produced.

“He is the one producer who has manage to come the closest to produce the sound that I want. He obviously still has a lot of room for growth and will definitely flourish,” she said.
