Heineken® Live Your Music announces 88 Rising to the Kuala Lumpur nightlife scene on 9 December 2017 with the Malaysian premiere of a group of the World’s fastest rising music stars featuring , Higher Brothers and Joji at KL Live. Adding a touch of local flavour to the line up is an all-star cast of Live Your Music insiders including Jhin, Flipze and DJ Vin.
is a fast rising media juggernaut and artist discovery platform that is earning its stars hundreds of millions of views with a frothy mix of music, food and hip hop culture clips. 88Rising is tipped to break through to the mainstream in 2018 and has already attracted interest from collaborators as diverse as Diplo, Skrillex and Ghostface Khillah.
Indonesian trap artist Rich Chigga, broke out in 2016 with the massive hit Dat $tick and is the first of the stars to cross into the mainstream. Chigga was recently interviewed on Beats Radio along with Pharrell Williams, where the global hip hop icon seemed more in awe of the emerging Indonesian artist than vice versa. Tracks like Glow Like Dat and Gospel have clocked up more than 20 million views each, while his latest cut Chaos looks set to repeat those successes.
Chengdu-based Higher Brothers have converted their outsider status into a massive and international online following.
The Chinese rap four-piece may have been inspired by US rappers like Kendrick Lamar and Migos, but their take on the music, via YouTube hits like WeChat (feat. Keith Ape) is entirely original, with an outlook that is instantly recognizable and relatable to audiences across the region.
Of all the 88Rising acts, is the most difficult to categorize. Specializing in the kind of woozy, laidback nu-soul that has made global stars of acts like The Weeknd and Frank Ocean, the Japanese- Australian musician is also a YouTube star in his own right.
