FEMM announce FEMM-Isation UK/EU tour 2022
Calling all agents: FEMM is embarking on their first-ever overseas tour!
After many international appearances at conventions and events, the rap/J-pop duo finally stepped out as headliners and hit the road in the UK and EU this July!
Presented by Orion Live in association with Ran Touring, the FEMM-Isation UK/EU tour 2022 will see the J-pop sensations performing a full-length set of fan-favourite tracks giving fans a long overdue dose of the live experience only FEMM can deliver. Dates and ticket details will be announced in the coming weeks, including VIP packages.
Supporting FEMM on all dates will be J-pop singer MIKUROMIKA, also touring for the first time. MIKA’s fresh brand of house-infused J-pop, released worldwide via Setsuzoku Records, will be the perfect complement to FEMM’s iconic sound and presentation.
In celebration of the tour, FEMM’s international label—JPU Records—will be releasing the group’s latest two albums, Tokyo Girls Anthem and Tokyo Ex Machina, on CD for the first time! The physical releases will be available ahead of the tour. In addition, FEMM’s previous releases will also be reissued due to popular demand.
For the latest updates on the tour, be sure to stay connected via social media and the artist’s official website.
Rap duo RiRi and LuLa are two mannequins of their own will. Their signature song, “Fxxk Boyz Get Money,” was a girl’s anthem with a poignant message supported by American teens and quickly spread to Europe, South America, and Asia by agents (the name of FEMM’s fans), including global influencers.
As a result, their debut album “Femm-Isation” made it to the “Top 10” of the US Billboard chart “World Albums.” In the UK, they were selected as one of the “6 Acts To Watch in 2016” by the Huffington Post and as the “Best Indies Album” by all HMV stores, opening up a new decade in the female rap scene both at home and abroad.
They are also well versed in internet culture and were one of the first to start the revival that is now sweeping the world, releasing the Vapor Wave interpretation of “’80s-’90s J-Pop Revival”.
In 2020 they released “404 Not Found”, a six-song EP with the message of “a brand new sound that doesn’t exist anywhere else (yet).” This led to an “upgrade” and launched a new era for the iconic duo as FEMM 2.0. Their most recent album Tokyo Girls Anthem was released in December 2021.
It was packed with a wide variety of rap tracks made in collaboration with globally active hip-hop producers such as Boys Noize and Star Boy. FEMM then released their latest album, Tokyo Ex Machina, in January 2022.
The artist’s aggressive musicality, which is linked to their agents and the dark world view and the global trend known as “Hyper Pop,” has garnered serious and sharp attention from domestic and international media.
Combining house, vocal trance, and J-pop elements, singer-songwriter MIKUROMIKA is ready for the world.
MIKUROMIKA’s chill pop vibe and sleek vocals, which she calls ‘MIKUROPOP,’ draws inspiration from such diverse acts as Japanese R&B legend MISIA and icons like Lady GaGa and Cindy Lauper. MIKA’s love of music, art, and fashion fuels her passion for performance and positivity and takes that passion global! Finding her Tokyo-energized groove in the world of electronic music, MIKUROMIKA is crafting her path, her direction, and her style.
Her debut album, ‘MIKUROPOP,’ was released on Setsuzoku Records in 2021 and was produced by Argentinian DJ and producer Delta Ouji. The album features “Good Day” and the Spotify dance playlist sensation “Product Boy.” In February 2022, MIKA released a new three-track EP with the lead single “Ocean.” Continuing to make waves, MIKUROMIKA is planning a new single as she hits the road in 2022.
