The third single in a series of releases by producer audiot909, a pioneer of Japanese Amapiano, is a triple collaboration with producer TOMC and Dos Monos rapper Shoko it.
For two consecutive months, audiot909 has released music with QN and CHIYORI, opening up new possibilities for Japanese and Amapiano.
This time, the collaboration partners are TOMC, an ambient artist who is highly acclaimed both in Japan and abroad, and Shoukoit, leader of the rap group Dos Monos, who has been active beyond Japan, including two European tours and a live performance in Taiwan.
This work, entitled "The Out of Africa Hypothesis," is a sublimation of both lyrics and music, based on ideas born from an exchange of ideas and ideological backgrounds, as well as shared musical favorites such as Steven Reich, Four Tet, and Shackleton. This is a work that should be called "Alternative Amapiano".
The result is an imaginary Afro-tronica sound that no one has ever heard before, with a progressive Hip Hop sound and a dance music aspect.
