After an extended period spent hibernating in the studio while the world as we know it changed significantly, electronic producer and visual artist Asta Hiroki emerges in 2021 with the first single taken from his eagerly anticipated debut album. And it's a typically luscious track of downtempo nourishment that goes by the name of 'Slumber'.
Lo-fi aesthetics combine with leftfield electronica are laid down to form a beautiful bedrock, as the Colombia-based, Montreal-native producer and vocalist: Dontmesswithjuan contributes to an appropriately dreamy vocal performance for this sleepy title. She further enhances her already growing reputation on a track that captures the mind with it's soulful, heavy-eyed hypnotism.
Her vivid lyricism mixes the everyday and the surreal with overarching themes of stopping and stepping back for reflection, looking to find joy and beauty in simple moments, and not just sleepwalking through modern life scenarios and situations.
Having just sparingly released a few singles and an EP to date, Asta Hiroki has built up a solid fan base and growing critical acclaim with BBC 6Music plays from Don Letts, Tom Ravenscroft, and Huey Morgan, achieved coveted Spotify editorial playlists like 'Fresh Finds', 'Butter' and 'State of Jazz' and gained prime slots on Bandcamp weekly multiple times.
