Born to Congolese parents in Paris, David Shabani immigrated to Canada before launching alternative hip-hop artistry in Texas. His idiosyncratic multi-city story plays out in the assured, soft-edged lines of Friday’s EP Shabani’s Smooth Sounds of the Summer. With homages to his native French and Lingala, the artist blends bouncy club beats with spacious soundscapes to let lyrics lead. Try funny “Life’s Not Fair” (“All my exes live in Texas, but my wifey’s in Toronto”) or biographical single “SJU to AUS.” – Rachel Rascoe, Austin Chronicle
Look for Torre on Spotify and stream her latest single, “Topo Chico”
