Sal Dulu shares hypnotic single ‘Alien Boy 96’

It comes ahead of the release of his debut album slated for early 2021.

Following off the back of his previous releases Irish producer Sal Dulu has provided another beautiful piece of instrumental hip hop.

Arriving via his own Duluoz Records ‘Alien Boy 96’ sees Sal experiment with dreamy and hypnotic sounds and enlists crunchy drums to push the cinematic sounds along.

Speaking about the new single, the Dublin-based artist says, “I made ‘Alien Boy 96’ quite early on during the making of the album. The song is a throwback to 90’s dance music with some hip hop influences in there. Stylistically, it’s probably not the most representative in terms of what the album is about, but it’s one of my favourites and I’m excited to put it out as the first single.”

Largely working late into the night in both London and Dublin, Sal Dulu has provided a cut dripping with nostalgia and a much-needed dose of escapism.
