  • Collaborative Music Project MAISONdes Releases New Track Featuring Nagumoyuuki and riria.

    12.September.2021 | MUSIC

    MAISONdes is a unique music project. Extremely popular on TikTok, it’s described only as ‘a fictional apartment building somewhere,’ where a different singer and creator features on each and every track. Each song is even labeled with a room number. This allows up-and-coming artists to collaborate in ways they never expected, and leaves the listeners enjoying an all-new sound. Rather than stick to what’s comfortable, artists taking part in the project express themselves freely with their new creative partner.

     

    Following artists like yama, Nakimushi, Kujira, Moka Sato, Riu Domura, Wanuka, and haruno, we come to Room #107. This time, Nagumoyuuki and riria are up to bat in the new single Natsukaze ni Tokeru, out September 8. Nagumoyuuki wrote the lyrics and arranged the track, while riria provided the vocals.

     

    Room #107 – ‘Natsukaze ni Tokeru’ feat. riria., Nagumoyuuki / MAISONdes

     

     

    MAISONdes began a YouTube channel in February 2021, and has already featured plenty of creators leading the new music scene. Released in May, ‘Yowanehaki feet. Wanuka, asmi’ won the TikTok Song Ranking four times in a row and has over 100 million views on the app. In August, vocalist asmi appeared on THE FIRST TAKE. The song also attracted a great deal of attention on Line Music, Spotify, and Apple Music.

     

    In Fall 2019, singer-songwriter riria posted a video to TikTok and YouTube, in which she performs without showing her face. Currently, the artist has over 1.3 million followers on TikTok.

     

     

    Nagumoyuuki is an up-and-coming composer who has written music for yama, who performed in Room #101, and who has featured massively popular singer Ado in her own work.

     

    Comment from riria.

    I was incredibly honored to participate in the MAISONdes project, and to sing Nagumoyuuki’s incredible song. It wasn’t the type of song I usually sing, so I was able to express myself in a new and fun way. Please give it a listen!

     

    Comment from Nagumoyuuki

    riria did an incredible job singing this song, which is about two people just passing the time during a quiet night. I hope you enjoy listening to it, no matter what’s going on in your life.

     


    The illustrations used for the song were created by NANAKI PANTZ, who has also contributed to other videos from MAISONdes in the past.

     

    This track is sure to be another hit across SNS, and the future’s looking bright for MAISONdes! Be sure to check out the rest of their tracks on YouTube.
