AmPm’s New Song ‘more’ Features DedachiKenta On Vocals

16.May.2019 | MUSIC

AmPm have announced that they will release a new song entitled more feat. DedachiKenta & FUNTYME on May 22. The electronic duo previously worked with popular Japanese group A6 and now they have invited DedachiKenta on board for vocals to their new track.

DedachiKenta is a 19-year-old singer-songwriter currently living in Los Angeles. He joined Office Augusta’s new label “newborder recordings” in November last year and released his first debut tracks as an artist This is how I feel and Memories. Both songs made it onto FM29 across Japan and the singer made it onto YouTube’s “Artists to Watch” list.

 

AmPm’s new song is described as having a different taste to what we’re used to from the masked duo. Its melody is “catchy with a feeling of refreshment.” The music is laced together by DedachiKenta’s honest and pure vocals and is a peek into the coming summertime.

DedachiKenta will appear as a guest at AmPm’s upcoming performance at GREENROOM FESTIVAL ’19 on May 25. AmPm completed their first solo concert last month so we look forward to seeing what they have in store later this month.

    Comment from Amanda Yang

    Everyday is about getting caught off guard and falling in love with someone. Being vulnerable is hard. So, I wanted to capture the moments when you realized that you were no longer just “casual” with someone. The moments that showed it grew into something bigger. Everyday is about finally letting your guard down and being open to loving someone without restrictions.’

     

     

     

    Comment from AmPm

    ‘Beginning in 2021, we’re not just releasing artist collaborations like we were before–we’re releasing pure dance tracks. Everyday is a great combo of AmPm’s past trends and this year’s dance music trend. It’s a simple and easy to understand summer tune, so we hope people can just enjoy the heat while vibing to this track. Even though there are still tons of restrictions in place this summer, we hope turning this song up a little louder will help raise everyone’s spirits.’

    Dipha Barus and AmPm have some words about the remix which we’ve translated below.

     

    Message from Dipha Barus 

    “It’s truly an honour, and I’m overjoyed, being requested to remix AmPm’s On The Black and White. I’m grateful, since I’ve been in contact with them ever since we performed on the same stage together in 2017. It’s been a really fun experience getting stuck in with this remix. I can say with confidence that I’ve made the best thing I possibly could. I pray that my brothers are satisfied with the results, and I hope in the near future I can perform together with them again once we’re done with this!”

     

    Message from AmPm

    “We’ve been in touch with Dipha ever since we performed together at SPOTIFY ON STAGE in Indonesia in 2017. He’s unique, and we can feel his identity as an Indonesian artist on many of his songs. He’s someone we have great respect for. We’ve longed to work on a project with him. We’ve thought about having numerous different people remix our songs before, but for our first remix there’s no one else but him. It’s our first time experiencing our music being reborn by someone else’s hands, and it’s more than we could have hoped for. We’re so excited, and we look forward to performing with him again.”

  • TV Anime Fruits Basket Opening Theme ‘Chime’ Gets Remixed by AmPm

    08.October.2020 | ANIME&GAME / MUSIC

    Masked music duo AmPm released a remix of Ai Otsuka’s song Chime on music download and streaming services, along with a music video, on Wednesday (October 7).

     

    Since August, Ai Otsuka has teamed up with music producers and track makers of various genres to release a remix of one of her songs per month. Chime comes as the third of hers to receive a remix. The first was PEACH which was remixed by Tomggg and the second Kingyo Hanabi by ANIMAL HACK. AmPm have produced music for a whole range of Japanese artists such as V6  and Ken Hirai, and have remixed for the likes of Afrojack and Nicky Romero outside of Japan.

     

    Chime is used as the second opening theme for the first season of the 2019 TV anime adaptation of Fruits Basket. The song is hugely popular within anime community both inside and outside Japan.

    Check out the colourful music video for the remix below which is inspired by the fairy tale The Ugly Duckling.

     

    Ai Otsuka – “Chime (AmPm Remix)” Music Video

     

    AmPm | Comment

    “We’ve had the chance to remix a lot of different songs, but this one was the hardest to remix. The original track is fast-paced, and Otsuka’s voice is persistent. We went through a lot of trial and error which is unusual for us. We wondered things like, ‘Can we tamper with this part’ and ‘Have we finished?’ The original song was written as the second opening theme for season one of the Fruits Basket anime, but this remix feels more like and ending theme. If the original is the chime to start the day, then the remix is the one to signal the end of it. But we want people to think of it more as an ending that connects to tomorrow, rather than a cut off. We also think that although it’s the same song, you can take the lyrics differently between both versions, so we hope that makes the existence of a remix more fun for people so they can listen and compare!”
