On the heels of his latest critically acclaimed release “Ini Kisah Benar”, host Azzief Khaliq speaks to Malaysian rapper-producer, Ichu, on the influences that have shaped his music.
Ichu is a record producer and rapper from Sepang, Selangor. His interest in music began when he was in highschool. He formed the music group “Clumsygang” and began to make and release music with the name Ichu. He continued to release music as a solo artist and has since released mixtapes like “Hell Must Be Lit” and “God Makes Us Clumsy” in 2016 and 2017. Both his album “Heavensbaby” and “Museum” was released in 2019 and has received lots of praise from established music houses.
The Sepang-based rapper has gained major attention for his experimental brand of hip-hop, which incorporates elements of noise and electronic music.
