MMXJ details the track: “When I composed the instrumental to the song, I experienced one of
those rare moments where I was fully present in the moment and aware; almost as if someone
had woke me up from a deep slumber and I was finally awake. I felt that the instrumental
encapsulated that feeling well and when I sent it over to James, he penned lyrics and recorded
vocals around that theme. Our goal with this song is to inspire listeners to live fully and present in
the moment as much as possible, as that is where the magic starts to come alive.”
MMXJ released his debut LP, ‘Into The Wild’ with Warner Music Singapore, to critical acclaim,
with his hit single ‘Kings’ claiming the #1 position on Spotify’s Viral 50 Chart for 3 consecutive
weeks. The album was licensed to tech titan Garena for use in their top downloaded mobile
His irresistible blend of honest, ethereal, uplifting music coupled with a high octane
live experience has seen him grace the stage at Singapore’s leading electronic festival ZoukOut
