Asian collective 88rising has been generating a real buzz in recent months as they have been pushing the envelope when it comes to breaking Asian hip-hop, R&B and electronic acts both in Asia and across the globe. Recent signee NIKI comes into the fold having made a name for herself from the heart of Indonesia.
With an impressive debut EP Zephyr under her belt, she’s already ready to release brand new material into the world, in the form of brand new single. “Warpaint” is a fresh new cut; a radio-ready pop gargantuan that picks up where her EP left of. Starting mellow, the bold percussion builds into a rousing anthem that aptly suits the name.
It comes following previous singles from her 88rising crew “Midsummer Madness” and “Let It Go” which have gone down an absolute storm. With the promise of a crew album on the way, we should be expecting to see some NIKI features and tracks of her own appear on the project. She might be a relatively new face but she is a talent you need to know about, Zephyr can attest to that.
