Amsterdam riser Zanillya draws on the full scope of club flavours.

An artist who grew up around hip-hop culture, she draws the potency of afrobeats and dancehall into her orbit.

Reflecting the diversity of Amsterdam's music underground, Zanillya's new EP 'Choose Life' bursts with colour and vitality.

New single 'Sacrifices' leads the way, and it's a bold, vivacious piece of music, with Zanillya flexing over that impeccable production.

Bubbling afrobeats rhythms are matched to bashment elements, with the Amsterdam force given space to do her own thing.

Catchy and difficult to shrug off, 'Sacrifices' "is about trust issues and betrayal stemming from the internal and external world," she explains.

"It's essence is about facing and choosing yourself despite the negative self talk and outside voices. When stepping into your destiny one must make a bunch of sacrifices and even though those are hard, with this song I was expressing my pain as well as my faith. It gives me the strength to keep going and hope it does the same for others."
