East Asia #3 – Modern Trap Asian Mysteries
This album combines traditional Asian instruments, sparse or confident hip-hop and lo-fi trap beats, and enigmatic or delicate sfx, with ethnic plucked strings, guitars and flutes, slow-paced percs, dripping synths, and other audio effects. The tracks are at times mysterious and somber, at others, deep and dynamic. The arrangements are suspended and often beautiful. From China to Japan, Korea, Vietnam, Thailand, from Singapore to Taiwan, this is an album perfectly suited for big city scenes, urban settings and Asian topics, as well as travel, documentaries or leisure and lifestyle content.
