Kirani Ayat and Re.decay's "These Days" Brings Berlin to Accra

The sunny west coast of Ghana shows up in a late-night basement lounge in Berlin, as Ghanaian rapper and singer Kirani Ayat teams back up with the German production duo Re.decay for their new song and video “These Days.”

His vocals bound from hard synth pulse to hard synth pulse. It isn’t the syrupy Afrobeats production—could you call it "Hausa-meets-deep house"?—but the results are catchy enough, the beat shuffles enough, for “These Days” to slip across continents and onto the playlist. Check it out:

The song is out on RDK Records, and drops ahead of Re.decay’s upcoming album Way Out East. Two years in the making, it features “15 artists from eight different countries and three continents,” because, of course, the beat will find you wherever you go.
