The Intergalactic Republic of Kongo

The Intergalactic Republic Of Kongo are like nothing else. “I Don’t Need” is a psychedelic, leftfield pop track built on perfect synth lines, polyrhythmic drum patterns and chanting refrains, building to an epic crescendo. It’s a heartbreak track that was inspired by a rupture in frontman and leader Mike Title’s life.

Mike Title is the visionary leading this gang of musicians, brought together from across Europe, North and West Africa with a dizzying array of influences and sounds, each one essential with Mike orchestrating the chaos.

Live they are incendiary, mind-bending and hypnotically compelling force as six members ferociously create an exhilarating immersive experience.
