Think of 88rising as the Asian answer to Tyler the Creator’s Odd Future. They’re the brains behind viral hip hop acts such as Indonesia’s Rich Brian (previously known as Rich Chigga), Chinese rap group Higher Brothers and Australian-Japanese alt-R&B sensation Joji. And the music label’s bringing the gang together to release their debut collab album that’s due out in July.
To give fans a taste of what’s to come, they’ve just dropped the first single off the record, “Midsummer Madness.” Produced by Rich with the help of fellow 88 member August 08, the track’s a laid-back R&B jam that’s perfect for those long summer nights with you and your squad.
