Joji – “Reanimator” (Feat. Yves Tumor)
Joji, the Japanese internet personality and musician who makes fluid, depressive R&B as part of the Asian rap collective 88Rising, just dropped his second album Nectar today. There are a bunch of high profile guests and producers on it, including Diplo, Lil Yachty, Kenny Beats, and Clams Casino. But perhaps the most exciting feature for people who read this website is Yves Tumor, the arty, genre-fluid experimentalist who released the great album Heaven To A Tortured Mind earlier this year. Their song together, “Reanimator,” is a good one, slowly building up from layers of James Blakeian synths to a subterranean groove before slinking back to the shadows. Listen below.
Nectar is out now via 88Rising.
