Their Most Wholesome Album Yet

The album’s main composer, Maatjet (above) shares, “This album sets to be a turning point in each of these artists involved in the project.

From someone as senior as Gard, Quai and Offgrid in [the] roster to the label’s latest signing Akkimwaru, everyone seems to understand the task very well and gave their best interpretation of the main album waypoints in their one creative language.

It’s just amazing to be in such a creative atmosphere. I initially thought that I would have hiccups in making sure that all these different styles and takes on music gel together in their respective songs, but it turns out to be a very seamless process”.

They Really Understood the Assignment

Executive producer Wuzgut (above) added, “It was a relatively short process yet it felt wholesome, well at least for me. I hope everyone enjoys the album as much as I did while mastering this project”.

The album cover art is a visual representation of their idea of blossoming, growing, and contributing to a greater cause rather than just acting on self-interest.

The label has commissioned a painter based in Central Market, Kuala Lumpur to work on the visuals of the album in support of the oil-paint artists in this digital era.
