Stranger/Lover (Mura Masa Remix) by Ibeyi

Discovered this track by listening to song suggestions, and it’s one of my favorite new finds. Mura Masa’s subractive take on Ibeyi’s soulful “Stranger/Lover” Features strong West African influence and tasteful vocal flanging. Favorite part: delay on “come heal in my arms” after first chorus. Added to Basement Sorbet. Purchase the album, Ibeyi

Favorite part: harmony and delay during “let’s wake up side by side/let’s sleep in till we die.” Added to caramel. Purchase the album, Wildflower
