Yellow Claw reunited with Indonesian electronic music trio Weird Genius on the single ‘Lonely’ featuring Indonesian singer-actress Novia Bachmid earlier this year in May. ‘Lonely’ was the second collaboration between the two acts since 2020’s ‘HUSH’.
Yellow Claw’s last full-length came in the form of their 2020 record ‘Never Dies’, which was their fourth studio album. The duo have released several EPs and compilations since, notably 2021’s ‘The Holy Bassgod’ EP, which featured remixes of Dysomnia’s ‘Bassgod’ and ‘Kawaii 808’ with Indonesian rapper Ramengvrl.
MORTEN recently released his single ‘No Good’ earlier this month on August 5. The DJ, real name Morten Breum, spent much of 2020 and 2021 collaborating with famed DJ David Guetta, resulting in a string of singles including ‘Detroit 3A.M.’ and ‘Alive Again’, as well as an EP titled ‘New Rave’ that was released in July 2020.
Morten’s last solo single ‘Polar’ was released in January 2020.
HypeWorld joins a packed list of concerts and festivals announced for the Lion City this year. ASEAN Music Showcase Festival will be held on September 10 and 11 at the iconic Haw Par Villa theme park, while Singaporean mandopop artist Stefanie Sun and Malaysian rapper Namewee have been announced for the upcoming One Love Asia Festival in October.
