Artist Wave, aka Robeal Yohannes, released his debut EP Shade.

North London producer and artist Wauve, aka Robeal Yohannes, will release his debut EP Shade. Although he describes himself as a producer first and a singer a distant second, if the EP’s new single “Pamela”, which aspects Afrobeats stars ZieZie and Stonebwoy are whatever to go by, we cannot assist however experience like he is being a bit challenging on himself.

Having discovered a deeper connection to his Eritrean roots as he’s grown up, Wauve’s tune is leaning extra and greater into that East African influence, taking pentatonic scales and homegrown rhythms and mixing them into the historically West African Afrobeats sound. Add to that a touch of the R&B and entice that first inspired him to make music and the end result is a mild and breezy sound that takes Afrobeats into new territories that probably will be explored a bit more.
