Djing an underground rave by diesel apr 19 in ny, if u know u already know. got my outfit sorted, i even made an original track whilst prepping for the set: i mimicked roland tb-303 bassline, made garage style beats. u can also find a playlist i made for this gig on my spotify (and the track on my soundcloud)
My response to an recent interview. do ppl consider my work frivolous? i think so? i ask myself all the times: “is this good? is this real? is this me?” i am constantly under these anxieties bc all i do are under my name’s sake. do ppl think i am a joke? am i not good? i don’t know man! i gotta move on! what’s not legit about performing at a shopping mall / showing art at a restaurant? i wish i can dj at shopping malls! so many great worldclass japanese entertainers had to do “ninja training” like that before they debut. the future is coming the future is now, i want to be well. (if there is any mental health / eating disorder charity work out there, please contact me! i’d love to contribute what i can)
I’ve been sloppy on manifest my “all-that-brits” destiny, but things that relate to england just keep coming! ty so much @theofficialselfridges for featuring me! i love u! honestly all @ivygetty & i did last lfw besides work was hanging out at urs. my installation:pericura 2.0–the deconstructed me, tho i am already onto my next art adventure, this piece is important to me—i realized how hungry i am, how many things i am lacking of. i want to be better, i want to be good at more&more substantial things, whether if is music production, dance, singing, art etc. therefore i have been training and learning new skills for my next piece. afterall, i want to prove the power of dreaming to u. and i want to bring energy, encouragement and 💕 to everyone🐰(ps: i am obsessed with department stores, especially when i was living in japan—school + department stores + home. my top choices are laforet for its fashion, daimaru for its food court, seibu is nice too. it is so rare for me to find a fun department store in the west but selfridges its a gem: the braid bar, tarot & aura readers shop, a selection of alternative fashion brands, the afternoon tea restaurant, the food court that sources from the entire england. when i was in london last time, i basically lived there & my posh brits housewife dream came true.
Really please listen to this spotify playlist i made for @masterdynamic. the more i work on making my new song(“princess of manifestation,” release new york time april 25 btw!), the more often i feel like, in asia we really can make great music, train and produce magnificent 360 degree entertainers. not just sing, or dance, or dj, or act, anything really, u just name it, we got it, f*****g proud everyday bro 🚀🙏🤙#baesian
Why its so disturbing when thinking “ah, zayn is british, ah, british 🍵🍪🍵🍪” (practicing a bit of every genres everyday! i havent design dance moves for my song “princess of manifestation” yet, the release show is apr 23! it will def be very cute!!)
Ty so much @hennessy for making this gift. this means a lot to me. sometimes i feel so hard pursuing my dreams, but i would never give up and i will embrace who i am. that’s really why i always say “princess of manifestation.” from the small town i came from in china, we rarely see henni, but i remember my dad said he would open a bottle of hennessy if i get accepted by a college. and he did after i received 11 offers from american colleges! so in my family we really have this tradition of celebrating with hennessy! maybe i will open this one next month when we release my song “princess of manifestation”?! thanks again for having me to dj last month! when are we doing a 5 hours dance party again?! 🎀🚀
I actually was never in japan during the cherry blossom season. this year i thought i would be there for producing my song, but it turned out that i am working independently in ny for that. i have felt so much better the past few days. the snow that gathered under the shadow will never melt, you gotta push yourself and move around to make improvements. my life is so fulfilling when i practice dance and music. everyday before i go to sleep, i pray that something exciting will come to me soon 💫
I was in severe depression and anxiety since we closed my last art installation. this month has been quite and everyday i just practice dance & write music. i write diaries often, and sometimes i read what i wrote from when i was in a mood, they are ridiculous and scary. yesterday morning i had a panic attack whilst preparing for my song writing session. i couldn’t even read my chart. last night my friend mimi and i stopped by her friend’s sandwich restaurant. the chef owner was making sour dough bread, like he is so good at this and he got his customers’ trust. the scene was so serene and beautiful. bc this life of knowing what you are doing tmr, the day after tmr, and being with some solid happiness like the aroma of the bread, they are the precious jewels of life. i don’t know what’s the next, and i appreciate what i have been taught: no short-cuts, experiment & find ur own music. thank u thank u ❣️
