The New Must-Hear: Mustafa Akbar
By: Amy Cooper, ACRONYM
For a treat just in time for 4/20, we have a new jam to have a chill sesh with from a very talented vocalist named Mustafa Akbar.
Hosting with the label SpinSpinNYC, Akbar holds a vibe we can see relaxing to, and with the remixes associated with this new single called "Trust," also to dance to.
This is not Akbar's first foray into music. According to SpinSpinNYC, he "debuted in 2001 on the Thunderball album Scorpio Rising singing on ‘Heart Of The Hustler’ released by Thievery Corporation’s record label ESL Music." From that point, he has been featured on tracks associated with house music, as well as break, soul and funk records. He also heads a band called Nappy Riddem, which was formed in 2011.
Considering all the background that Akbar has, it's no surprise he wanted to release some new music, showing his growth and range all across musical formats.
The label shares that "This project is years in the making and we look forward to highlighting Akbar’s musical prowess on SpinSpinNYC."
With that in mind comes the fun part! To get your hands on this awesome track, there are pre-sale links for his new song and all the remixes, which can be found at your respective sources below. Check it out, buy it, and enjoy!
