Premiere: Hear a Dreamy Beat-Driven Cut From MAÏA
'Motion' drops on Beats Of No Nation on November 23.
A dreamy mix of nostalgic beats and soulful, affecting lyrics, MAÏA’s music touches on her musical upbringing and the influences pulled from listening to acid jazz, afrobeat, South African house, funk, and reggae while growing up—she also cites The Internet, Henry Wu, Iman Omari, and Potatohead People as big inspirations. Motion features three cuts that show MAïA to be an exciting new talent in the beats and soul scene, from the hip-moving title track to the alluring soul of “Love Is” and the jazz-infused “Hold It Down.”
In support of the release, Beats Of No Nation has offered up a full stream of “Motion,” available via the player below.
