Summer tracks rarely come hook-ridden and upbeat like releases from your new favourite soul-pop artist Tabi Gazele. Based in London, the singer has been dubbed by many for her soulful touch on dance-pop music, as ‘Irresistible Afro Pop’.
Having released ‘Touch Somebody’ near to a few months back, this was the first product of her contagious jumble of sweetened soul-disco, that oozes with poppy bass grooves.

She tells Spindle more on the backstory of the EP:
“Whilst in the studio experimenting I was told by a few people that my voice reminded them of the late Brenda Fassie. She was the South African Queen of Pop who after researching, clearly had an incredible life story – I decided to get in the studio with my brother Timomatic on production and re-imagine some of her songs just as a “try out” – It was a wild thing to try and not something I would normally do…but it just clicked. I felt some strange kind of bond with her music”.
Forward-thinking and incredibly relevant for the summer, Tabi shows her love for Chic with funky style guitar and vocal fluttering on ‘Weekend Special’, while more of a slow burner, ‘Too Late For Mama’ is a heavenly slice of soul infused disco. Each track is brimming with personality and zest- we can’t wait to see what else Tabi has in store.
