Groningen based and Curacao born afro pop meets indie artist Axel Dorothea has just released his latest single. Entitled “Simmer Down,”the chill track follows his moombahton release “Moombahroad” shared earlier this year.

But if I’m unable to communicate how i truly feel, my relationships were doomed from the offset. Over time, I starting to feel much more comfortable in showing my emotions.
