Gaidaa, a Dutch-Sudanese singer, has been making waves as an artist for about a year. She toured with Masego during the summer of 2019, and has been on the rise since then, catching the attention of The FADER and Schön! Magazine.

“The series provides a comprehensive look into the creative process of making a hit song,” Red Bull said in a press release. For each episode, the show will pair three distinct artist from three countries to collaborate on a track. The kicker?

In the show’s debut, Gaidaa is paired with UK Garage producer DJ Q and Japanese artist tofubeats. The result is an uptempo alt-R&B cut for fans of Kelela and Jorja Smith.
