Asian Electronic music trailblazer TSUNANO has positioned himself at the intersection of Chinese culture, international fashion, and funky House music. His striking image has been captured by fashion outlets like Nylon Shanghai, Lui, and L’Officiel, while his musical talents have earned him recognition from acts such as Yellow Claw, Cesqeaux, Aazar, and many more.
"Educational" is the latest release from Tsunano, and compares favorably to Disclosure's funky House vibe, crossed with the rhythmic energy of DJ Snake. With production credits for Chris Lee and Momo Wu under his belt, Tsunano unleashes his own buttery lead vocal, flickering in and out of falsetto before embarking on a spoken word, rap-like verse that is both sticky and fresh. Blending equal parts Electronic, Hip-Hop, and Funk, Tsunano's unique aesthetic vision is ready to secure a lasting spot on the global charts, while "Educational" features a gorgeous music video shot in the streets of Hong Kong. But the most striking element of the video is the first 30 seconds, where he makes a poignant speech on the construct of femininity. This infectious track will have you hitting replay with hints of jazz-chord voicing, deep dance beats, and a bubbling synth bass.
Born in the city of Taipei, Taiwan 1992, TSUNANO (also known as Jaeson TsuHao Liu), currently resides in Shanghai. "Educational" is out now on Universal Music France. This song is featured on our Groovy Summer playlist.
