Los Angeles-via-NYC-via-Bengbu, China producer, songwriter, and DJ Alice Longyu Gao has dropped a brand new single referred to as ‘Kanpai’. The monitor comes with an accompanying video directed by Olivia Aquilina. Test it out beneath.
Gao mentioned of the brand new music in a press launch:
My finest buddy Madison Emiko Love and I wrote this music three years in the past. Her grandma is a Japanese immigrant and we at all times need to champion & plug our tradition all over the place we go. We’ve been ready to place this music out, cuz again then nobody with energy in western music realized the facility of Asian popular culture, nobody actually cared to place Asian abilities on the desk. The fabric world was asleep cuz they didn’t see the money-benefits. ‘Kanpai’ means cheers in Chinese language, Japanese and Korean; the joyful vibe interprets completely all through the music. The braggy-docious, rap-y bridge half within the music is what I want for, it’s not my actuality but. Final yr was darkish for me, and for everybody. However now it’s time to regroup and restart, this music wakes me up within the morning, it jogs my memory that I got here to this earth with a mission. I aspire to encourage and profit different individuals’s lives. I try this by way of my artwork.
