Wovensound brings Ihasamic! and Joey Maker for new song, "No Road Home"

11/24/2020 02:32:24 AM

There's a crossover collaboration between neighboring countries as hip-hop producer Wovensound has teamed up with Singapore rapper Ihasamic! and Vietnamese-Australian hip hop artist Joey Maker for his latest single “No Road Home.”

Released under international record label Umami Records, this song possesses an eclectic blend of old school hip-hop beats, haunting piano chords, conscious rapping, and even a suave guitar solo. In terms of creative inspiration, Wovensound cited Immortal Technique’s “Dance With The Devil” as the track responsible for laying the preliminary touches of his latest collab song. 

“I wanted a beat that felt that way and brought out that kind of vibe and emotion in people,” said Wovensound. 

Its lyrics tell a cautionary tale of flexing and lying for short-lived clout, and suffering the consequences after. 
Joey Maker shared, “My writing was inspired by the stories of some of my close family and childhood friends - kids I used to see weekly as I went through high school but have lost contact with since adulthood. Growing up amongst the Australian-born Vietnamese community, there was always a mystique and a lure - even an idea of status - associated with gang culture. We idolised triad movies like Young and Dangerous and looked up to Sydney gangs as much as we feared them. Unfortunately, some of the kids I grew up with got caught up in the image - the image became their reality, and they never made it back. I still think about them today.”
The collaboration of this trio is just Wovensound's second single off his 6-track debut EP Vertigos Fulfilled, scheduled for release in June 2021. Meanwhile, the hip-hop producer (or Vinod Dass in real life) and Ihasamic! Will also be releasing their 4-track collaborative EP REPACK in early 2021.
