Diggin’ This: Genesis Owusu – “Sideways” (Produced by Simon Mavin & Perrin Moss of Hiatus Kaiyote)
That scraped-flute-meets-old-violin intro.
On the instantly interesting “Sideways,” the 19-year-old Ghanian-Australian singer-songwriter Genesis Owusu takes inspiration from the music of William Onyeabor and enlists the production expertise of Simon Mavin and Perrin Moss of Hiatus Kaiyote to create three minutes and seven seconds of catchy lyrical hooks, layered vocal patterns, and textured grooves.
Track of the day.
