Sensational duo imugi 이무기 and buzzing Kiwi-Korean rapper Hans. share the stage for this double-bill of silky smooth electronic pop and laid-back, feel-good hip-hop.
A symbiotic match found in the melting pot of Tāmaki Makaurau, Carl Ruwhiu and Yery Cho have found an irresistible aural aesthetic in the eclectic spaces between a smooth mix of synth-pop, R&B, poetic stream-of-consciousness and addictive ambient-pop all wrapped in a bubble of electronically produced music.
They’re joined by friend and collaborator Hans., whose signature nonchalant delivery speaks of bittersweet musings of the heart, dipping between down-tempo grooves and upbeat pop-style beats. Hans.’s distinct laid-back honesty moves strong in the music waves he’s been making on the local hip-hop scene, and on imugi 이무기‘s recent single ‘Swimming’. On the rise, he’s one of music industry legend Zane Lowe’s favourite New Zealand rappers, has already played SXSW, and opened for Billie Eilish.
Off the back of their gorgeous sophomore EP Dragonfruit, imugi 이무기 continue to experiment with the sonic and emotional landscape that encompasses their vibrant live shows, reaching out with a glowing hand to invite you into their multicoloured universe.
