Sudanese singer Ahmed Gallab, aka Sinkane, will release his latest album, Mean Love, on September 2nd via DFA Records. Already we’ve heard the spacey “Hold Tight”, and today Sinkane unveils “How We Be”.
This time around, Sinkane shifts his vocals into the foreground, letting the mix of glitchy, doubly funky bass, spirited hand claps, and shimmery synths take a larger role in building an experience. When his voice does emerge from the groove, though, Sinkane is as sultry and beguiling as he is emotionally resonant.
