Audio: CHLLNGR's Title Track "Haven"


We first posted about CHLLNGR, a Copenhagen-based producer signed to our buddies over at Green Owl Records, when he dropped the track “Ask For” featuring Spoek Mathambo, The Very Best’s Mo Laudi, and Blk Jks’ Mpumi Mcata.  The eerie, dubby sounds continue here in this "goosebump-triggering" title track off his new project "Haven," listen below.  Vocal contributions on the album include performances from Coco O. of Quadron and Aku from Dragons of Zynth. Check for the full project which will be in stores July 5th.
