Asia goes dance: Globally acclaimed dancer TSUKUSHI (Fabulous Sisters) joins Japanese production duo AmPm for new single ‘Wake Up feat. Lilly Ahlberg’
Since their debut in 2017 with the hit song ‘Best Part of Us,’ Japanese masked production unit AmPm has collaborated with multiple artists worldwide.
AmPm has released ‘Wake Up feat. Lilly Ahlberg’, the eighth advance single from their forthcoming concept album themed on global travel – this time set in Jakarta.
The track is a collaboration with UK-based singer-songwriter Lilly Ahlberg. Telling its story through Ahlberg’s eyes and set against the backdrop of Jakarta, it depicts a “journey to find yourself.”
The music video features an incredible performance by TSUKUSHI, the 17-year-old dance prodigy who has appeared in several music videos.
TSUKUSHI is a member of Fabulous Sisters, the world-beating dance group that won the WORLD OF DANCE global dance tournament held in Los Angeles for two consecutive years in 2016 and 2017.
As the video unfolds in a classy Asian-style restaurant, TSUKUSHI reinterprets the unique vibe and flavour created by AmPm with choreography based on jazz dance.
Set in Jakarta, her beautiful dance expresses the feelings of overcoming the recent period of oppressive travel restrictions to find ourselves.
AmPm is a masked production duo from Japan who made a significant global impact with their March 2017 debut track, ‘Best Part of Us feat. Michael Kaneko’.
The same year, they were the only Japanese artist to perform at Spotify On Stage, a festival in Indonesia hosted by Spotify.
In 2018 they dominated stages worldwide, from ULTRA Miami, ULTRA Korea and ULTRA Japan to a headline concert in New York.
In addition to releasing their original music, AmPm has remixed tracks by famous overseas artists such as Afrojack, R3HAB and Nicky Romero, along with remixes for renowned Japanese artists like Gesu no Kiwami Otome (‘Black Parade’) and MONKEY MAJIK (‘Tokyo Lights’), and production for Ken Hirai’s track ‘Holic.’
Furthermore, collaborating with many dance-music vocalists, they have released more than 40 tracks. In March 2019, they were recognized at the Digital Contents of the Year 2018 / 24th AMD Award, winning the Special Jury Award.
