Singaporean rapper ShiGGa Shay teamed up Aisyah Aziz and Charlie Lim to release ‘uTopia reimagined: chasing’, marking the third installment of The Foundation’s UTOPIA Reimagined series.
The track is a direct response to the UTOPIA Symphony, a Singapore-inspired symphony by Russian composer Vladmir Martynov, and recorded by the London Philharmonic Orchestra (LPO). Produced by superjdoug, ‘uTopia reimagined: chasing’ features the sampling of the orchestration played by the LPO. “It was a challenge to incorporate a unique piece like the UTOPIA Symphony as we had to blend and bend different genres together,” expressed ShiGGa in a press release statement.
