GOODNWS x Darker Than Wax – Assembly Point 2

by wjournal


After the teasing first Assembly Point, this second edition cements the fact that Asia is brimming with musical creativity as a whole. Collective collaboration between GOODNWS, a music media based in Jakarta, Indonesia and from Singapore Darker Than Wax. From Tokyo to the deepest side of Taiwan, we unearth a new generation of artists who inject into their music, a diverse range of influences.
So, in conjunction with our extended family label GOODNWS based in Jakarta, we are back once again presenting you the sonic frequencies in all things Boom-bap, House, Garage, forward funk nuggets and hypnotic loops.

Starting with Japan, the likes of Japan’s Sauce 81, Linn Mori and Rigly Chang have been enlisted for the cause. Nobu Suzuki is a highly respected figure in the electronic music scene, and is truly a sound musician in so many levels. Linn and Rigly Chang are part of the younger generation of Japanese beatmakers who are really starting to develop their own forms.

Travelling across to Hong Kong, we have wonderboy J-Hoon who is a multi-talented cat that freestyles, sings and dabbles in the world of Boom Bap and Electro. J-Hoon has also opened up for acts like Daz-I-Kue, Rhettmatic, Eric Lau, Dj Krush and Afrika Bambata, so you know he means business.
