Black Coffee x Ami Faku – ‘There’s Music In The Air’

Black Coffee has linked up with South African vocalist Ami Faku to reimagine legendary South African singer Letta Mbulu’s track ‘There’s Music In The Air’.

Weaving his tale of sleep deprivation throughout, Golden Features continues to amaze with his unique ability to turn his personal torment into a mesmerizing and relatable earworm.

Ivy Lab – ‘Balaclava’

“‘Balaclava’ is the calling card for the whole project. It’s the centre ground amongst all the different cultural, emotional and sonic touchstones we’ve ended up navigating between across the LP. It’s sombre, uplifting, arrogant and needy all at the same time. She sings ‘I offer you my sweet devotion’ but I don’t think she really means it.”

GRiZ – ‘Your Light’

Continuing to show his lighter, more melodic side with the series, ‘Your Light’ harnesses GRiZ’s funk roots and minimalist sentiment.
