AM444, Eye Wonder, PAUSE:MUSIC
A collaboration between Dutch DJ and producer Jay.Soul and local-based singer ChaCha, who also features on Kode9's latest album, AM444 are one of the most exciting electronic music talents to have emerged from this city. On Eye Wonder, ChaCha’s brilliantly sultry vocals are backed by Jay.Soul’s sexy funk beats to produce an eight track album that blends underground sensibilities with sheer pop appeal.
Infectious choruses abound, with the hooks from ‘Ni Wen Wo Ba’, ‘Shen Xian Yao’ and ‘Eye Know’ near impossible to shake from your head while the title track that finds AM444 at their most irrepressible.
The first of two excellent releases from local label PAUSE:MUSIC, this record ought to be playing all over Shanghai this summer.
