The astronauts are landing.
Palestinian-Jordanian rapper and singer joins force with Somalian MC, rapper, Director and record producer from Dubai Freek on this massive remix of Australian rapper Masked Wolf’s Astronaut in the ocean!
Astronaut In The Ocean is an anthem that Masked Wolf has created where one could blaze through his thoughts in a fast and animated cutting-edge style creating a song that you could knock your heads to while relating to what is being said and really delve into the lyrics.
For the remix, we have none other than The Synaptik and Freek, who each shine on this track bringing their own flavor to a territory that is known to them, self-reflection in their music, allowing both of them to steer the wheels of this track during their verses.
All 3 artists are inspired by and infuse different genres and cultures together, Masked Wolf with that touch of dark chords on a hip-hop/trap song with Synaptik’s animation and flow in his classic Arabic trap sound and Freek’s drill and lo-fi trap inspired style. This remix is a match made in heaven.

About Masked Wolf
Transforming from a mild-mannered man by day into an unrestrained beast in the studio, Masked Wolf (aka, Harry Michael) has unassumingly established himself as a powerful, passionate, and primal hip-hop force. After graduating from school, the Sydney, Australia native tirelessly worked in sales to fund recording. He even took out a loan to build a home studio as he cut hundreds of songs and logged thousands of hours in the lab. In 2018, he dropped his independent debut “Speed Racer.” It gathered millions of streams and turned heads across Australia. Following “Night Rider” and “Water Walkin,” he unveiled “Astronaut in the Ocean.” Awash in airy guitar, jagged 808s, neon keys, and deft wordplay, he submerged himself in honest lyricism, facing depression head-on. That one-two-punch of a recognizable riff and chantable chorus organically caught fire online. It quickly incited 350,000-plus Tik Tok videos, spanning everything from footage of U.S. military Blackhawk chopper crews to welders and ice fisherman.
