Multi-instrumentalist and forward-thinking dance music protagonist Bézier appears as a highly welcomed guest on the latest and fifth outing by FuFu Records for their ‘88 – Double Happiness’ compilation series.
Last year’s successful run of four charity-driven VA releases supported NGO One Tree Planted, with a final donation being made last month from 2021 sales — so far, the label’s efforts have seen 1900 trees planted in the Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam & India.
Their 2022 plan is to continue to raise awareness of environmental issues our planet is facing through quality dance music produced by electronic artists from across the Asian club scene. This year, the Hong Kong based label will partner with NGO Seven Clean Seas to help the reduction of plastic in the ocean. The plastic offsetting goal is for every US$2 raised in sales to represent 1 kilogram of plastic waste being removed from Indonesia’s oceans and beaches. The money raised will also be used to pay local workers for their efforts in removing the waste, while educating them on an adaptable and sustainable future.
Joining artists like Muto, Farhan Rehman, Jesse You, Xiaolin, Three Oscillators, Ranzen and Tollcrane is globe-trotting Taiwanese-American artist and Honey Soundsystem co-founder Robert Yang, whose music you’ve also heard under his other moniker Bézier.
‘Chandeliers’ is a consistent follow up to Yang’s recent EP ‘Valencia’ on San Francisco imprint Dark Entries, and comes in as a powerful contribution to the 8-track VA from FuFu Records.
Ripe for a 4am workout on the dance floor, Yang’s meticulously layered drums form a chunky groove with enough leeway to let rolling percussion set new thresholds of momentum. The track’s namesake evidently stems from the luminous strokes of synths that dangle and glimmer over Yang’s chuggy drums. The charming, pendant-swinging melody that ensues leaves the listener entranced in humble euphoria. ‘Chandeliers’ is a nod to Bézier’s refined vision for meaningful dance floor flavours.
Have a listen below.
Bézier ‘Chandeliers’ will be released via FuFu Records’ ‘88 – Double Happiness’ Vol.5 on 16 March. You can pre-order here.
