TÓKE // RILIS SINGLE “BROWN FACE”

Hallo Mavers! Kita mau kenalin nih artis baru dari Berlin yaitu TÓKE yang baru saja merilis single barunya “Brown Face“. “Brown Face” merupakan single kedua dari EP The Art Of letting Go yang akan diluncurkan. Coba Mavers dengerin deh lagu “Brown Face” ini!

Di single ini TÓKE memberikan nuansa modern RnB-esque tune Indonesian-German yang mengingatkan dengan masa kecilnya yang tumbuh besar di pemukiman dekat dengan HamburgGermany. Dia membicarakan tentang pengalaman masa kecilnya yang penuh dengan rasisme. Single ini merupakan sebuah identitas diri sendiri serta sedikit menyinggung tentang politik.

„Call me exotic, that’s white gaze. My culture surpasses your mindframe. My batik outshines your Nike’s“

Terlepas dari rasa sakit yang mendasari dalam lagu tersebut, lagu ini juga membawa energi positif yang kuat terhadap mereka yang  sedang merasa diasingkan. Dalam Video Musik yang akan Mavers lihat, kita lihat Tóke tampil dengan sekelompok BIPOC (black, Indigenous and people of color) yang sangat menakjubkan di sebuah gudang yang berada di Berlin.

Secara musikalitas, kita bisa mendengar irama yang sangat catchy dan penuh dengan perasaan, sementara Tóke beralih di antara melodi yang kuat dan energik.

Lagu ini diproduksi oleh FLKS yang berbasis di Berlin dan Meekeska yang berbasis di Milan dan direkam di Planet Earth Studios Berlin, tempat populer di Jerman untuk pertunjukan Hip Hop dan Reggae.

I would like to let you know about Tóke, upcoming Berlin-based artist who is set to release his touching new single „Brown Face“ this Friday, March 12th. This is the second single of his upcoming EP „The Art Of Letting Go“. It would be amazing if you had a listen, review it & put it in your playlist! :)

In this deep, modern RnB-esque tune Indonesian-German artist Tóke revisits his childhood growing up in a village close to Hamburg, Germany. He speaks about the experiences he made and the often subtle, yet stinging nuances of racism. It is a piece about Self-Identity on an individual and collective, political level.

„Call me exotic, that’s white gaze. My culture surpasses your mindframe. My batik outshines your Nike’s“

Despite the underlaying pain in the song, it also carries a strong celebratory energy towards those who are „othered“ in western societies, the people formerly colonized. In the accompanying Music Video we see Tóke performing with a stunning group of BIPOC (black, Indigenous and people of color) in a warehouse in Berlin.

Musically speaking we hear a cutting-edge, danceable and soulful sounding beat that carries traces of RnB and Hip Hop, while Tóke switches between powerful melodies and energetic flows.

The tune was produced by Berlin-based FLKS and Milan-based Meekeska and recorded at Planet Earth Studios Berlin, Germany’s hotspot for cutting-edge Hip Hop and Reggae acts.
