SINGAPOREAN ELECTRONIC MUSIC ARTIST MJ KUOK NEW UPLIFTING MELODIC HOUSE SINGE, ‘TRIUMPH’
LEADING UP TO FORTHCOMING ALBUM ‘ATLAS’
2021 has seen Singaporean electronic music artist, MJ Kuok (previously known as JUN and MMXJ) on a prolific music production ascent, where releasing music has been a constant, and the works of an upcoming full-length album, ‘Atlas’ slated for release in Q4 of 2021. As part of the upcoming album, its focus track, ‘Triumph’ will be released on all major digital streaming platforms on 2 July 2021, Friday, together with an accompanying music visualizer which will be available on his Youtube Channel.
‘Triumph’ was produced in the midst of a quarantine stint in Hong Kong. The uplifting melodic house single marries ethereal synths with light hearted catchy beats, embodying a sense of succession and achievement in listeners and transporting them to a place where anything is possible.
MJ Kuok shares, “I was working on ‘Triumph’ during my quarantine stint in Hong Kong where I came to be with my partner. As we were both not living in the same country at that time, I wanted the single to be a celebration of sorts. To finally reunite and be together despite the challenges we have faced, especially during this current climate, it was a mixture of relief and a new sense of hope. This song is my personal tribute to anyone out there who wants to or is in the progress of pursuing their dreams. The sky’s the limit, and all the more we should work towards achieving our goals.”
MJ Kuok’s ‘Atlas’ album is slated for release in Q4 2021. Exciting activities as part of the album release, including a brand new line of merchandise, hybrid livestream sessions, and collaborations will be shared in the upcoming months.
