Over the course of little over a year, Tunisia’s Koast has quickly become one of our favorite emerging regional talents, bringing her unique voice and R&B-tinged flow to sleeper hit after sleeper hit. ‘Don't Do That’ sees Koast step further into the trap/R&B fusion that, alongside dancehall-tinged releases like ‘Japan’, is quickly becoming her signature sound.
Producer Kiev Beats brings together upbeat chords, muted and reverb-drenched vocal chops, and grumbling 808s into the perfect sonic foundation for Koast's rapid fire, melodically-inclined flow to elevate the tune into sublime sonic territories.
The music video, directed by returning collaborator Oussama Boukhris, presents a street-level night shadowing Koast through brightly lit streets, with a dreamlike aesthetic that ties in well with the groovy instrumental. Also returning on ‘Don’t Do That’ is rising tunisian producer & multi-instrumentalist Ratchopper, who mixed and mastered the project.
