Rapper/singer/producer brandUn DeShay has had a hand in crafting tracks for folks like Chance The Rapper, SZA, Mac Miller and more. But when he moved to Tokyo a few years ago, he began focusing on other creative endeavors including his own music under the moniker Ace Hashimoto. Now the Chicago-bred artist teams with our newly-minted GRAMMY Award winner Thundercat for his new single “VAPORWAVES,” a teaser for his upcoming debut album. And we do mean that literally as Ace has already warned that the video will only be available for a limited time.
The laid-back tune is the perfect vibe for chillin’ at home or cruising down the street like Ace and Thundercat throughout the cute 8-bit music video. Hashimoto explains the concept saying, “this song is about existential crisis and i believe it was that concept that led me to feeling free enough to do things i’ve always wanted to do, while also being even more grateful for the things i CAN do. if that make sense. basically, be aware of your own mortality. remember, we’re all just human. and tell the people you care about, ‘i’m happy to have you in my life.’”
