Psychedelic soul savant Jitwam debuts in Southeast Asia this April
His first stop in Hong Kong includes a Jazzy Sport show and Arturia workshop
Representing a fresh wave of musical prodigies from the South Asian diaspora, Naarm & Brooklyn-based artist Jitwam will be dropping into Hong Kong, Indonesia and Thailand following a hefty six-city show across Japan.
Currently on Mixmag Asia’s Artist Spotlight, Jitwam has sonically gone from strength to strength through his production output, while escalating his presence on the global stage through community-driven projects like Chalo in London, and studio collaborations with the likes of Cosmo’s Midnight.
His first show will be at Terrible Baby in Hong Kong, together with Japan’s Jazzy Sport crew on April 6. A day after the show on April 7, Jitwam will be doing what he does best through the art of giving; in a partnership with Arturia, Eaton HK and Mixmag Asia, the DJ & producer will be hosting an intimate music production workshop where he will share his unique approach to songwriting, arrangement, and production, providing valuable insights and techniques that he has developed throughout his career.
Attendees will also get a deep dive into his latest single ‘hollatchu’, which features acclaimed LA-rapper YUNGMORPHEUS and UK-based artist jaydonclover. For either aspiring producers or seasoned musicians, learn from one of the most innovative artists in the game right now, and get familiar with his favourite tools of the trade from Arturia.
Following the workshop, Jitwam will be heading to Bangkok where he’ll be performing at The Standard Bangkok Mahanakhon for a double show over the Songkran weekend. Catch him first at the decadent Sky Beach rooftop, with the best view of Bangkok, on Friday 14, followed by a soulful get-together by the Pool on Saturday 15.
The globe-trotting artist will close off his Asia Tour in Jakarta with a show at Bebop on May 5.
