A magnetising album where Noname’s delicately spoken raps are fused with hard-hitting hip-hop and mellow instrumentals. Modern day hip-hop at its best, engaging and uplifting.

Sabiwa – 輪 迴

We gave you a little taster yesterday now dive into the entire project! 輪迴’ (English: reincarnation) is the second album from Taiwanese sound and performance artist Sabiwa. Over 12 tracks she interprets reincarnation through bass-heavy rhythms, dissected sound art and intense vocal gymnastics. Don’t sleep, you have been warned!
