EDITORS’ NOTES

Having stormed his way through the underground scene, rapper Haji Springer returns with Dava, his first album in five years. The eerie “Keede” kicks it all off, dropping a murky beat and dense lyrical pattern over piercing synths and ominous piano. Springer’s idiosyncratic brand of desi hip-hop is on full display here, flexing smooth freestyle flair on the crowd-popping anthem “Sanjay Dutt” (just wait for that chorus)—while rapid-fire rhymes pick up the no-holds-barred club anthem “Galtiyaan”.
