With large success already under his previous artist monikers JUN and MMXJ, Singaporean artist MJ Kuok is arguably one of the most exciting names currently coming up within the electronic music scene of Hong Kong. His long career started back in 2009 when he took the stage at Singapore Idol as a finalist, and later went on to DJ in major regional festivals such as ZoukOut and massive events such as Djakarta Warehouse. Over the past years, MJ Kuok has truly discovered his love for electronic music production, consistently sharing tunes that have landed on major YouTube outlets, received support from numerous editorial Spotify playlists and even been placed in Mediacorp’s broadcast of the 2016 Olympic Games.
Now, following a lengthy and exciting rollout, MJ Kuok is finally ready to unveil his brand new album ‘Atlas’ in full, which front-to-back makes up for a truly exciting project. Driven by stunning melodies, subtle kicks and irresistible deep house energy, ‘Atlas’ is the culmination of years of experience, taking listeners on an auditory journey unlike any other. As the DJ and producer explains, this album represents his growth in self-discovery, as through its tracks he shares his first-hand life experiences in fulfilment, love, and even becoming an adult.
“I have dabbled in quite a number of aspects in the music industry from being a singer-songwriter to performing at major electronic festival circuits as a DJ to now, music production and ultimately rediscovering and finding a true sense of comfort in feel-good beats that I work on. Every song in ‘Atlas’ not only sheds light on a personal moment or experience but also captures an all-encompassing positive theme of hope and courage,” reveals the talented artist.
Alongside the release of ‘Atlas,’ MJ Kuok has shared a collection of one-of-a-kind NFTs, that combine beautiful landscapes with modern stylizations, allowing viewers to be transported to an artistic paradise. MJ Kuok will also be taking part in this month’s TikTok Music Night #HouseParty edition on 17 September 2021, Thursday 7:30PM (GMT+8) via the @TikTokMusicNight account. There he will perform his music via livestream, representing Singapore alongside artists from the APAC and ANZA regions.
