the new single from the Brooklyn based mega collaboration between tastemaker Japanese-American DJ and producer Haruka Salt, Sorry Records co-founder and producer/DJ Tony G and Chinese-American rapper Bohan Phoenix. Entitled “Papajam”, the riveting new track fuses a wild blend of techno, house and hip-hop that intertwines hints of nostalgia with future driven sonics for an explosive hard-hitting good time. Haruka Salt confides, “We all stretched ourselves creatively, and the result was a magical experience, and super fun recording.”
Signature to Bohan Phoenix’s style, the song incorporates both Mandarin and English lyrics relaying a unification of cultures and musical backgrounds in dance music. In eliminating all perceived boundaries creatively, the track’s “stream of consciousness” lyrics are structureless and surprising, further opening the mind of the listener.
“Papajam” is released through toucan sounds record label, and the colossal collaboration features three of the most pivotal figures in the Brooklyn music scene. They are debuting the single at the Legendary Brooklyn’s Mood Ring December 3rd.
