Respect The Artists
Representing Canada/Singapore and living in Malaysia, Masia One kicks off Respect The Architects with her Far East Empress style and flow setting the stage for Klang’s own Noyz134, who proceeds to drop a barrage of bars in his native tongue Bahasa Melayu. Yes, this is how the story begins. Weaving her unforgettable vocals over the JCB produced beat, Janine Annice blesses this first SoundSplash drop with the vibes of a soulful oracle. Holding together the backend of this production, ALX adds his talents to the mix and master of the track, ensuring that the boom bap production hits as hard as the lyrics. More than enough reason to put this NFT in your collection.
Also showcasing his skills as a visual artist, Noyz134’s hand-drawn digital artwork for “Respect the Architects” shows a vision of the future, ominous with robotic sludge covered streets ridden with cameras ever watching. The artwork also hints at hope, with people teaming up in Web3 communities and a strong female figure in the forefront seemingly empowering her path through innovation. Look out for the Easter eggs throughout the image, with all collaborators names hidden throughout the piece, symbolic to the song’s message: Sometimes the pioneers and founders forging the path are not celebrated in the forefront. Even so, we are reminded to respect the architects.
