On Rotation: Songs You Need in Your Life This Week.

Another December edition of ‘On Rotation’, ten tracks from artists across Africa and the diaspora to get you ready for the party season.

1. Efosa x RZ Beats – Astronaut

Self-proclaimed ‘fusionist’, Efosa glides over this afro fusion track. The interplanetary melodies of the UK-based artists are coupled with the unique production of Rzbeats. It has all the elements to make it an infectious vibe.

2. Dr Alams – Money

UK-based singer and songwriter, Dr. Alams delivers an anthem for December. A genuine medical doctor, the methodical nature with his refrains are set up just makes sense and assist the track progression. 

3. 95ANTHY – 5STAR

The experimental Ghanian artist delivers the perfect track for a late-night chill session. Hard to pinpoint one genre influence, ‘5STAR’ is a new blend of sounds. It floats within the new ‘alte’ wave.

4. Ragz Originale – Code Red

Here we have the latest bounce from one of London’s most prominent rising talents, Ragz Originale. Self-produced, ‘Code Red’ is his final release before gearing up to enter album mode. If this track is anything to go off we can expect a great one.

5. WNDRSZN – Sugar

One of the most distinctive dance tracks I think I’ve heard all year, WNDRSZN usually sits on the overlap between gentle, sultry R&B and more upbeat pop rhythms. ‘Sugar’ is an excellent example of its execution. 

6. Jay Moore featuring Runtown – Rewind

Something light to set the mood, Jay Moore has just the right song to hold a whine to. Dim the lights, hold a corner of the dancefloor and simply press play. The Runtown feature adds another enhancing layer to the track. ‘Rewind’ is one to be replayed.

7. Scribz Riley – East Side

Top of my Spotify Wrapped for 2020, I have not and will not tired of this song. Scribz Riley is a multi-talented artist born and raised in East London and ‘East Side’ comes off his project Wish Me Luck. Spoiler alert: the beat switch mid-track is ridiculous and I reload the track every time I hear it.

8. Ogranya – YKTL

My personal favorite Afro-soul vocalist, Ogranya, has such delicate, sensitive songwriting. Previously an architect, the sound landscape he constructs with words is vast in nature but simultaneously feels warm and intimate.

9. Nnabu – It Go Bad 

The intro track to his mixtape Modern Age, ‘It go Bad’ is a soft, spiritual jam. Placing a New York spin on afrobeats, Nnabu has the knack to make you want to reflect as you dance through each tune.

10. Elhi and Mut4y – Heart Robba 

An emotive track from Lagos-based singer Elhi, it comes off his ‘Eu4ria’ EP.  Produced by Mut4y, the slow afrobeat song has the sweetest rhythms and is one I simply can’t get enough of.
