Leïti Sène Drops Track ‘#SPANISHFEET’ + Video Portraying His Life In Barcelona

One of Spain’s fastest rising underground artists – rapper, creative and acclaimed actor LEÏTI SÈNE – shares infectious new ‘cute drill’ single ‘#Spanishfeet’, alongside a captivating video portraying his daily life in the vibrant city of Barcelona. Finding it’s home on the cutting-edge imprint Yuukii Music (home to Bhavi, Defensa, Zoe Gotusso and more) ‘#Spanishfeet’ is an addictive slice of Spanish drill – a tongue-in-cheek track that talks about honesty, realism and the false appearances he perceives in the genre.

Recorded in a DIY home studio in his flat on a random night, sonically, the track reflects the plethora of sounds and influences so prevalent right now in the burgeoning Spanish rap scene, as Leïti and producers Bexnil and Nadddot blends trap, new wave, hyperpop, afrobeats and rap with ease, always nodding towards his Senegalese roots. The follow up to recent poignant trap single ’T-Rex’ and its captivating Miguel Morillo – directed video, this is the second single from Leïti’s anticipated forthcoming JÖM Mixtape, due for release this summer. Returning to his solo work after recently starring in smash Netflix show Élite, ‘#Spanishfeet’ is another addictive taste of Leïti’s genre-defying sound and unwavering creative vision.

An artist known for his uncompromising approach to aesthetics and meaningful visuals, the music video, directed by Jordi Lops, plays with the spaces where Leïti feels more comfortable: the stage and his house, always with the CuteMobb collective by his side.

Alba ‘Needs A Holiday’ In Latest Single

‘I Need a Holiday’ was written and recorded at home by ALBA during lockdown and produced in collaboration with up-and-coming London-based music producer Ed Black, aka edbl.

The Spanish-born and London-living singer and guitarist is known for her timeless yet fresh pop-rock sound with undertones of neo-soul, funk and R&B. The latest single boasts a soothing presence of soulful R&B, taking centre stage, later joined by raging guitar plucks giving the production that much-needed edginess.

“This song is an ode to escapism, figuratively and literally speaking. Quarantine forced me to get acquainted with my deeper feelings and emotions. I’m sure many can relate to this feeling of being trapped, constantly ruminating past experiences, regrets and worries, which can really damage one’s mental health. I wrote this song in the midst of this (unsolicited) journey of self-discovery in the hope of better days. I was very excited to collaborate with edbl, whom I deeply admire as a musician and producer, and who helped me take the tune to a whole new level.” – ALBA

‘I Need A Holiday’ follows ALBA’s singles ‘Sister’ and ‘Child of the Stars’. Also released during the pandemic, the singles have been aired on radios around the globe, and received coverage from well-known publications, blogs and tastemakers such as BBC Radio, Amazing Radio and Wonderland Magazine.
