To stop myself clogging up other threads rambling on about just how good I feel Mustafa is I figured I’d start a thread.
Generally some distance from a genre I usually occupy myself with, I’m really loving listening to his debut album When Smoke Rises. At around 23 minutes it feels like an ideal introduction to an artist that can grown and grow. I really do feel we may have a superstar on our hands here. The way in which he seamlessly wanders through musical genres.
The album feels brewing and full of loss, his vocal talent is clear. The overarching feel is one of peace and hope. To me, post pandemic, which we are almost at, this feels like a fresh start, a re-set. I love the all encompassing vibe of the record and hope it reaches as many ears as it deserves to.
The below track isn’t even the best track on the album, feels so honest, touching and direct. I kind of like the way the music videos are shot also, but it’s the music that matters. I would be interested to read what people think…
