SONO Music is proud to announce the release of Tōryanse (通りゃんせ) by RHYME and Dontmesswithjuan. Coming together on their musical journey, the two have created a beautiful timestamp of life together with this new single.
Tōryanse (通りゃんせ) is about a strong lady and her weapon taking her own way. Will she be showing the way? The song is written, recorded, produced and mixed by Dontmesswithjuan, from Montreal and Tokyo, Japan. As a 360° artist, Dontmesswithjuan is unfolding into her own genre called Surrealist Electronica, where her philosophical questions, haunting voice, dark textures, sound design, glitchy foley elements, and surrealist videos collide to create a cinematic world outside of human reality.
Dontmesswithjuan and her record label SONO Music released her debut album Juan & the Pursuit of Happiness in June 2021, on which each single represents a level into fictional character Juan’s quest to shed light on his questions of purpose. Now the cycle starts again, this time in the Metaverse.
The last single Young Lady from her album was released along with the album on June 25th, 2021, followed by the accompanying surrealist video and short story. Sometimes in life, we need to eliminate a version of ourselves that we might have been very attached to. We need to let go of a part of ourselves, of our frustrations, of our past…. So we can move into the next cycle…….
“PURPLE JUAN” commented RHYME and Dontmesswithjuan.
Tokyo-based artist, RHYME, emerges as an enchanting muse, teaming up with legendary act Shinichi Osawa, to create the captivating duo project, RHYME SO. Their musical prowess caught the attention of renowned label 88Rising, leading to collaborations with esteemed artists like Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Mari Natsuki, Wuh-oh, and KAZUO.
Through the fusion of poetry and sound, RHYME seamlessly blends the essence of our ever-changing world with the nostalgic echoes of iconic genres such as Rock & Roll, Spoken Word, Electronic, Electro/Techno/Hardstyle, Hip Hop, and Experimental. A true multi-instrumentalist, RHYME skillfully plays the saxophone (alto and Soprano), the Japanese koto, and the piano while programming and producing her compositions on Ableton.
Acknowledged in the fashion industry, RHYME continuously showcases her talent for brands like DIOR, COACH, Dolce & Gabbana, Dom Pérignon, while also gracing the stages of festivals such as PLAYTIME FESTIVAL (Mongolia) and MORI MICHI ICHIBA (Japan).
