Releases of the Month is a collaboration between SceneNoise and XP Music Futures that brings you a playlist of the month's most noteworthy tracks.

From Elyana’s ‘Mama Eh’ securely cementing her place as a leading voice in the industry, to Ziad Zaza expanding his sonic footing with ‘Oul Ya Baba ft. Karim Osama (prod. Riff)’ all the way to Sudanese artist Mvndila nimbly walking the line between hip-hop and RnB, this month’s picks for ‘Releases of The Month’ champion pioneering MENA popstars and talented up-and-comers alike.

In our selection, Nour Khan leaves us captivated with her enchanting vocals on ‘Shuaa El Nour’, while Jeme delivers deep and rich grooves on ‘Ygol Alshaer’. Zain Faiez also showcases his singular sound with ‘Freak’, and Lil Eazy, along with Rissi Tempo, hit it out of the park yet again with Srtwhile.
