“Can a mere song change a people's minds? I doubt that it is so. But a song can infiltrate your heart and the heart may change your mind.” ― Elvis Costello

Take a few minutes ... scroll, stop & listen. Allow the artists in our spotlight to infiltrate your world ...

Jun Parker’s first two singles released in the second half of 2022 garnered radio play across the continents. With international music festival appearance also under his belt, the Australia-based artist is gearing up for new single releases.

Here comes the club remix version of Say Goodbye recorded in Yokohama, Japan remade into a beat-driven dancer tune. An assured modernised transformation from a City Pop medium number into one that gets your feet tapping while still leaving a retro Tokyo scent behind.

Uniquely the song is set in the Australian outback sang in a story-telling fashion in Japanese. The repeated phrases “say goodbye” and “c’est la vie” in chorus bridge the lingual and cultural gap in this apocalyptically surreal and nostalgic storyline.

Entitled 6 Ft. Away the two Asian-American rappers, Star2 and $tupid Young, return with a punchy anthem about their thrilling lifestyle in the limelight. Over thumping bass, a razor-sharp beat, and intoxicating rhythmics, Star2 and $tupid Young note on the lessons they’ve learned from fame and fortune.

6 Ft. Away blends influences of burlesque and hip-hip for an enthralling sonic experience chalk full of sharpened rhythmics, and heavy undertones of bass.

The single is a dynamic hip-hop collaboration between Star2 and $tupid Young who can both agree, while fame has immersed them in a surreal and exciting reality, it has also illuminated fake relationships.

“I want more Asian artists to win,” says $tupid Young. He has collabed with Star2 on a six track EP due out in March with features from MB Nel, Chinatown Runner, Gee Kade, and Lil Poppa.
