MAVI: Doves

The second single from MAVI’s upcoming second LP, Laughing so Hard, It Hurts (out 14 October), “Doves” is a jazzy, mellow track that boasts warm, polished production by Dylvinci. With jingling chime effects, pretty background vocals and a subdued beat, it’s a languid, rich and hypnotic track.

Earl Sweatshirt feat. Mavi: EL TORO COMBO MEAL

Earl Sweatshirt’s two-and-a-half-minute “EL TORO COMBO MEAL” showcases the talents of the LA-based rapper (aka Thebe Neruda Kgositsile) and his collaborator Mavi, who eschew their signature chopped-and-screwed styles in favor of quicker cadence. Mavi’s stream of consciousness continues just past the halfway mark, when Earl Sweatshirt offers up a fuzzy, filtered verse—in which he references late record producer and DJ Ras G.
