The track’s first draw is its Kenyan vocals that create a mesmerizing tribal feel, while Romero ups the ante with piano chords that lead into a deep, undulating bassline and rhythmic synths. ‘Mahoya‘ is engineered to be a crowd pleaser, with a driving beat and indeterminable yet catchy vocal riffs, and is sure to light up the dance floors across the globe. Listen here.
