The exciting partnership between Uniqlo Singapore and Syndicate continues!
Last year, the cutting-edge audio-visual collective first teamed up with Uniqlo to produce exclusive in-store music, in conjunction opening of their new flagship store. Recruiting some of the very best local producers around, Syndicate's initial 24-track compilation was eye-opening and extremely well-received.
And since the first collaboration went so swimmingly, Uniqlo and Syndicate decided to get together once again — this time for a brand new Christmas-themed compilation! Featuring another all-local lineup of beatsmiths, the 11-track Yuletide offering proved to be yet another widely-celebrated and wonderfully successfully venture for both parties.
So it only stands to reason that the two entities would be eager to keep the ball rolling into 2017. And true enough, this coming Chinese New Year has given Syndicate and Uniqlo another cool reason to unite: to craft a more Sinocentric compilation for the occasion.
Showcasing 11 outstanding homegrown producers, this latest collection of tracks might actually the most sonically interesting team-up Syndicate and Uniqlo have done so far. Awash in traditional samples and experimental electronic sensibilities - this compilation totally redefines the sound of CNY in fresh new contexts.
Featuring in-house Syndicate staples such as Kiat & Cherry, KoFlow, Rafi Dean, Intriguant and Max Lane, alongside talented affiliates like blankverse, Fzpz, FAUXE, The Analog Girl, dyzfnktn and Perk Pietrek, this latest in-store music playlist exclusive to Uniqlo's popular Orchard Central store.
But lucky for you, Syndicate has also made all 11 tracks available for streaming on YouTube.
