At Spinnup, we have the pleasure of discovering new music of various genres and languages released with us. Every month, we receive track submissions from such amazing independent artists across Southeast Asia. These artists are nothing short of talented and it blows us away every time, so much so that we decided to do a Top Picks to handpick some of our favourite tracks of the month.
Thanks to our handy submission tool, independent artists can push their tracks further and it has also helped us immensely keeping an eye out for talents on the rise.
Below are our Top 5 picks of new music releases in September:
“Extra” – Tripov
Tripov brings some colour into our lives with their feel good track, “Extra”. The three-piece alternative band from Indonesia aims to uplift people with this catchy tune, which is a brilliant balance of unfiltered outpouring of confidence and joy. “We want people to relate and be inspired from the song so they can strive for their dreams, true selves, and whoever they want to be,” says Evan Asher, the band’s guitarist.
The release was also complemented with a fun music video that is sure to put a smile on your face, so make sure to check that out below:

“Book of Daniel” Album – Danye
Perak-born artist Danye, who also goes by Daney On The Beat, proves himself to be unstoppable in his new album release. The producer and rapper’s 18-track album serves as a kaleidoscope into his passion, journey and hardships faced as a musician in Malaysia. This album also features a sick lineup of Malaysian artists taking the album to a whole new level, including Viona, Eyza Bahra, Sabbala, Rebel Asia, Kungfu Heidi and Rudeen to name a few, so don’t sleep on this.
The second track in the album, “Terlepas” also has a music video which you can view below:
“U and I” – Tiara Maimun
“Paradise” – Haresh Subas and Ashley Ng
Haresh Subas, singer-songwriter from Singapore taps frequent collaborator Ashley Ng in a new single titled “Paradise”. Their soothing vocals, breathtaking harmonies and chill music production transports us to paradise in this one, providing a sense of serenity and solitude. So, sit back, relax and let go of your worries to this amazing collaboration.
“Mars” – Teh Yi Wen
Teh Yi Wen caught our hearts with her R&B debut “Mars” which is all about self-affirmation. Its heartfelt lyrics and serenading tune aims to provide listeners with an imaginative space to let go of their worries, in hopes that it will give light and hope in these tough times. If you are ever in need of reassurance and a safe space, the Malaysian sweetheart has got you covered.
