'Supernova' is out now on CONECTD, a new imprint with a motif of the Modern Silk Road
‘Supernova' is the second collaboration project of a new imprint CONECTD, following ‘Northern Lights' by Third Party and Nell. This time, Korean-American rapper Junoflo— a West Coast Icon who gained a rapid fame through a popular TV series in Korea, 'Show Me The Money'— joined forces with Curtis Cold, one of the most respected electronic producers in China. Curtis produced Kris Wu’s 'July' and was included in the Forbes 30 Under 30 China 2018.
The Urban track opens with Curtis’s dreamy instrumental, layered with an astronaut’s voice counting downing from five to zero, and is followed by WHO$’s mournful vocal. Led by Junoflo’s flawless rap, the track gives the illusion of having watched a sci-fi film after listening.
The title ‘Supernova’ refers to the powerful explosion that occurs towards the end of a massive star's lifespan, emitting so much light that it resembles a brand new star. This is a reflection of the way that these three artists came together and created ‘Supernova,’ demonstrating an explosive synergy.
A newly launched series <CONNECTED MINDS> is published on CONECTD’s official YouTube channel to present how Korean-American artist Junoflo and Chinese artist Curtis Cold collaborated to create ‘Supernova’ along with their personal interviews and background stories. The series will continue with CONECTD’s upcoming collaborations and is expected show how CONECTD acts as a Modern Silk Road between artists from different regions.
