From BT to Haim

Also this week:

Print star Anna Aya told us that, It’s not the basic J-pop, which is only in Japanese. My song is mixed with English and Japanese, so not only is it a fusion of the languages, it’s a fusion of the sound as well because it’s more of a western beat that you would technically hear in America more maybe. But the lyrics and the melody are more Japanese-inspired in that it’s soft and more emotional. So yeah, I think it’s not the most generic way of describing J-pop, but it’s something I define as my kind of J-pop.”

In “Not Another DJ,” BT said, “I think a lot of electronic music is highly formulaic and will be replaced by large music AI models. The stand out stuff is incredible so I’d call it a mixed bag.”
