REBEL shows Aman Ra’s greatest chops is still his gritty & guttural side – especially when he’s fighting societal expectations and elevating the prestige of budak flats.
This week we have a lot of hip hop with R&B tracks for fans of the genre, including Flizzow, Aman Ra and LUNADIRA’s new track. Kayda’s debut single from her first official album is on this list too! We also have a great release from the supergroup indie rock band, Toko Kilat. This week’s edition of Singles Only has something for everyone. Follow us on Spotify for weekly updates on fresh local tracks.
It’s a really great week for music here in Malaysia. We have the out-of-the-blue appearance of new band Sweetass, Altimet’s single about our culture of debt and more from Takahara Suiko’s solo project! Follow our Spotify profile for updates on the latest local tracks!

Hip hop was a mere caricature.
