Japan-born singer and producer Joji is a multi-talented visionary, with a cult following from every corner of the internet. Joji is one of the most enthralling artists of the digital age. He has a total vision for his work, not just in the writing and producing of his music, but artwork, videos, merch, and live performances as well. It's a fully realized world that his fans can inhabit and explore - and see themselves in. "My music is not biographical," he says, but even still, the deep heavily shaded emotions in his songs are genuine and they speak to anyone who has ever felt stuck on the outside looking in, who knows what it means to not belong.
Joji's sophomore studio album Nectar has a star-studded cast of features across the 18-track record, his most ambitious project to date, including the recently releases singles 'Daylight', 'Sanctuary', 'Run', and 'Gimme Love'.
A project Joji describes as having "a sense of urgency but calm", Nectar occupies space where genres melt into each other, where downtempo R&B slides into invigorated pop, where indie alternative creeps into electronica; where emotions get tangled in an exploration of what every living being is innately drawn to - whether for pleasure or for survival - and the ends they'll go to reach it.
