Sudan-born Ahmed Gallab unites Pan-African influences and modern synth arrangements under the moniker Sinkane. Today he shared a chilling first single "Hold Tight" from Mean Love, his forthcoming LP. This song opens with moody organs and has a way of flooding your ears with a lush environment, seeping out of your speakers as if you were caught in a nostalgic fever dream. It's a mid-tempo, mellow delivery of jazz-pop that gives off an infectious Sade vibe. Sinkane sings with a luxuriant lack of haste, with a silky falsetto which reveals an emotional depth. Listen below.



Mean Love will be released September 2nd on DFA Records.
