“What Went Wrong” – Izat Ibrahim

The Singaporean R&B/pop artist never misses a beat and surprises us with every release. This time around, Izat Ibrahim treats us to an upbeat pop single about heartbreak. This is dedicated to those getting over someone who is like “a song stuck in your mind.” One thing’s for sure though, “What Went Wrong” will get stuck in your heads and hearts.

Get to know more about the fantastic Izat Ibrahim on our Introducing series.




“Without You” – Foxela and ZEHLO

“Without You” is one of the tracks that we discovered from the Spinnup Bangers Challenge this year in collaboration with Astralwerks, and it’s one that really stuck with us. It’s a dreamy, surreal EDM track by producers Foxela and ZEHLO and it’s unforgettable tune makes you want to dance the night away and forget your worries.




“Simplicity” – April and Yasher

“Simplicity” is Malaysian singer-songwriter April’s heartwarming debut single in collaboration with Yasher. The track is basically a cry for simplicity and expresses the desire to love a person freely and without complications, which we all deserve. It’s reassuring, wholesome and promises some hope all the same.

If you’re looking for a track that feels like a warm blanket on a cold night, this is it!

“A.N.A.M” – Aiman Nomad and SENNA

A.N.A.M, which stands for Aku Nak Aku Mau, is a catchy hip hop collab between Malaysian rappers Aiman Nomad and SENNA. The beat and mad verses reeled us in from the get-go, and we’re hooked.

This track is all about manifesting – if you want something, shoot your shot. Sometimes it’s a yes or no, what’s the worst that could happen? Go for it and trust the process.




“Love Game” – Adam Jazzlan

“Love Game” is all about dishonesty and playing games with a significant other in a relationship. It is also a nod to gaming elements, like the nostalgic cover art and a Playstation 1 audio sample at the intro, which makes it all the more memorable.

If dreamy, lo-fi pop tracks are your thing, you’re going to want to save this to your playlist!
