It’s time to put away your summer tunes. Autumn is officially here and with temperatures tempering down, playlists must be adjusted accordingly. Yes, that means taking a step back from DaBaby’s ‘Rockstar’ and The Weeknd’s ‘Blinding Lights’. Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B’s ‘WAP’, too.
In any case, with coronavirus creeping back in, there’s nowhere for us to go. Turning up at the club is a thing of the past, so we’re declaring cozy season officially here. And what better way to spend your time at home than discovering new tunes, especially the recently-dropped tracks of the region’s best artists.
Fair warning though, the tracks we’ve rounded up are as ubiquitous as the times we’re living through- so you can expect a full range of emotions as you listen through.
Felukah – Heliocentric
Tinariwen – Wartilla
Molotof x Shabjdeed – Jaw Ard
