It's been a while since the last Mosaic Mix! Our last was released in March for International Women's Day, but we can certainly promise something special with Volume 8.
Spring is on the calendar, but definitely not in the air. As Toronto deals with a whirlwind of temperatures and downpour, we wanted to bring a little bit of sunshine in your life.
Throughout this installment of the Mosaic Mix, we feature artists and sounds by way of Italy, South Asia, Ireland and other parts of the UK, Chile, Colombia, Puerto Rico, Jamaica, Singapore, France, Durban, Uganda, Trinidad & Tobago, Australia, South Africa, Brazil, and Toronto. The complete tracklist can be found below.
We kick things off with music from my fatherland – it’s Fabri Fibra’s new single, " Pamplona," featuring Thegiornalisti. I am happy to see one of my favourite rappers return with something both poppy and rap, as his records are quite diverse - a little bit of Italian Top 40 and a little bit of gritty hip hop. American influences definitely shine off of his new record, Fenomeno, which is his ninth studio album. Still producing them hits. Bella, Fabri!
