A soulful contemporary R&B collab by Soulflex/Tokyo Critters' vocalist ZIN and Pearl Center/Mime's TiMT, staple artists in Japan's independent jazz fusion/hip hop scene. "Cloud9" is a spacey, euphoric take on a groovy and romantic soul ballad with English lyrics taking the listener through a world of emotions like emptiness, loneliness, and reluctance to go back to reality after having positive high in life or simply having a good time. With its uplifting message and deep chill vibe, the track is universally appealing as a go-to for listening at home lounging, in hours of dusk or in the morning on the go.
A showcase of TiMT's signature spicy genre-glitching soundscape with ambient synths, spicy electric guitar and expansive lushness, as well as ZIN's buttery voice with profound emotional depth. PR plan includes online media coverage, as well as traction from fans of both artists which amass a listening base of over 100k monthly listeners.
