Newsletter: LiFTED Asia Drops New Single From LiFTED LOUNGE VOL. 1 Series Third single from Vol.1 is RAYRAY and TED PARK’s ‘6 Speed’


Asia’s leading pan-Asian Hip Hop Platform LiFTED will release its third single under the LiFTED LOUNGE title – an ongoing series that will showcase the region’s top artists and emerging talent to the world. On the new single, ‘6 Speed’ Taiwan’s Bass queen RAYRAY teams up with Korean-American rapper TED PARK for a bouncy, hook-laden Trap banger that finds RAYRAY singing the hooks to counterpart TED PARK’s melodic, rapid-fire rhymes. Her bass-heavy production, combined with tweaked Asian instrumentation is at the forefront of this catchy collaboration. LiFTED Lounge is released by b2 Music in partnership with Jägermeister and distributed by The Orchard.

RAYRAY has been steadily rising up the ranks to become a global festival fixture, after her collaborations with Dutch heavyweights YELLOW CLAW, and a string of releases with them that have touched all aspects of Bass culture. She recently was an international feature at Tomorrowland festival across three continents and has become one of Asia’s top DJ standard bearers across the globe.

TED PARK is one of Asian America’s most recognizable MCs due to his non-stop hustle and well placed collabs. Since he first blew up in 2016 with ‘Hello (Who is This?) he has gone on to sign with Jay Park’s H1GHER label and collab with him and artists like JESSI and frequent partner in crime PARLAY PASS.


LiFTED was founded in March 2021, and quickly took the lead in covering all aspects of Asian Hip Hop culture – including RnB, B-boying/B-Girling, Graffiti and Street Art, Turntablism and associated sub-cultures. In May 2022 LiFTED launched the LiFTED 50, Asia’s first-ever regional Hip Hop rankings. Now the platform is curating its first exclusive music project, LiFTED LOUNGE Vol 1 – after 18 months of covering the scene in an organic and personal style.

Jägermeister has been committed to helping emerging artists break out and create new music through their global initiatives like #savethenight and in the Asia region with LiFTED’s #thenext5 campaign.
