With the fifth installment of their popular “Best of Asian Dance music” series featuring Billboard, B2 Music has once again drawn on a wide variety of pan-Asian talent. Known for a mix of superstars (previous editions included remixes by Steve Aoki, KSHMR and Ferry Corsten) and emerging names, the Electric Asia series stays true to its roots, with 15 tracks spanning 10 Asian countries and multiple electronic genres, including House, EDM, Techno, Bass, Hardstyle, Drum n Bass and Downtempo.
Highlights of the album include a sublimely dark remix of Zeds Dead’s “Alive”, Chinese singer Downtempo Bass King Freeza, an international festival favorite, as well as the thrilling Trance remix of Chinese DJ Lizzy Wang of American superstar 4B “There 4 You”. In addition, RayRay, Taiwan’s top bass exporter, collaborates with fellow Barong family colleague DJ Sihk for the nail-hard anthem “Where are My Friends”, and rising star of Korean House / Techno Closet. Yi comes with his “Pike’s Pique (Hill Climbing)”.
Elsewhere on the album, South Asia is well represented with tracks from San Francisco-based Indian producers Baalti and their track “Aame”, as well as groove dealer Shillong Finding Mero and his track “Bubble”. Additionally, Krunk Kulture’s Sohail Arora delivers a dazzling Drum n Bass track, “444” under the nickname Easy Rizer.
Hong Kong is represented by Singaporean MJ KUOK’s Melodic House treatment “Aurora” and Zight delivers uplifting EDM with “Everybody Keep Running”, while Passerby’s “Life” is a cinematic ode to the city of neon lights.
Sean Dinsmore, Managing Director of B2 Music, said: âWe are delighted to announce the release of ‘Billboard Electric Asia Vol. 5 ‘because it really represents a sample of what’s happening in the region in 2021. As always, we’re happy to work with Billboard to continue bringing Asia’s most exciting electronic music to the world.
The album will be available on December 17th worldwide on all major platforms via AWAL and NetEase in China.
