Since the start of the project in 2019, the duo has had various releases with renowned label Kitsuné and have collaborated with major artists including Lee Wilson, Shigge, Røse as well as releasing the celebrated single, ‘This Is Good ft. Miraa May’ which was selected for Kitsuné Musique’s Best Tracks 2019.

Other Spotify playlist features include Herbst Chillout, Chilled Pop Hits and Tokyo Rising, contributing to over 2 million plays across digital platforms. The pair have also received international airplay with French radio station NRJ Online and written support by NME, and Stereofox amongst others.

Featured vocalist J.O.Y (Judgement of Yesterday) is well recognised across streaming platforms, with nearly 4.5 million plays and features on Spotify playlists such as New Music Friday (Canada, Germany, and Switzerland) as well as on noteworthy YouTube channels such as 7clouds and Royal Music. His celebrated single, ‘Into The Night’ earned him the #1 spot on the German iTunes Compilation Charts.
Snowk is the joint effort of Japanese musicians Namy and Fuminori Kagajo. The two find inspiration amongst the genres of R&B, Acid Jazz and House music. As a result, the dance-inducing stylings of ‘I’m Lost ft. J.O.Y’ can be compared to the likes of Duke Dumont, The Weeknd and Parcels.
Easing the single open with mellowed tones, best suited for a relaxing Saturday afternoon spent in the sun, Snowk gently guide their listeners along on blissful melodies that keep the positive vibes following. J.O.Y’s smooth vocals praise a mysterious woman that he can’t get off of his mind, creating a flirty atmosphere in the glistening single.
“We first started the track as a remix of another song but later on, we found that the rhythm and the overall mood of the track was embodying every aspect of our project “Snowk”. We decided to keep the instrumental and in a hurry sent it to a vocalist, J.O.Y. We really like the final version of the track, and we are looking forward to hearing your thoughts on it !” – Snowk tell us about the origins of the single.
