Leads with beautiful melody alongside a dreamy keyboard hook and quickly develops into a dynamic interplay between syncopated vocal drops and energetic, tropical rhythms.

Kumali’s latest single "Run," out now on High Vibe Records, is a soothing and attractive mix of Downtempo and Indie Pop, mixing dance-friendly beats with a soaring melody and layers of effervescent harmony. This groove-heavy pick-me-up was written to remind us that when we are uncomfortable and feel like shutting down, better times are just around the corner.

A British musician, producer and vocalist, Kumali's music brings together organic and electronic elements under a theme of mindfulness and emotional complexity — reminding us that great music need not be confined by restrictive genre boundaries. Drawing inspiration from an array of artists like Bonobo, Tourist, Ólafur Arnalds & Jamie XX, Kumali delivers a refreshing mix of vocal-led songs and intricate instrumentals. "Run" leads with beautiful melody alongside a dreamy keyboard hook and quickly develops into a dynamic interplay between syncopated vocal drops and energetic, tropical rhythms.

"Run" is another solid offering from this prolific British electronic artist.
