A week ago, we heard a first impression of Donnis in conjunction with his new found Japanese-based producers Nippon Sounds powered by Onitsuka Tiger. Now, the full project has gone live and it features interesting collaborations with three of Japan’s most exciting producers and DJs: De De Mouse, Joe Iron and Taku Takahashi. Listen to the project and read a short description below.

25-year-old Rapper Donnis may hail from the hip-hop hotbed of Atlanta, Georgia, but his musical journey began in Tokyo, Japan. While stationed in Japan with the U.S. Air Force, Donnis’ eyes were opened to Tokyo’s vibrant music scene. Inspired to begin recording his music at the base, Donnis soon received the attention of influential DJ Masterkey, who helped the young MC land high-profile opening gigs for visiting hip-hop acts from the U.S.

As part of the Made of Japan initiative, Onitsuka Tiger curated a cross-cultural musical collaboration between Donnis and three of Japan’s most exciting producers and DJs: De De Mouse, Joe Iron and Taku Takahashi. Dubbed Nippon Sounds, the free collaborative EP features original music and remixes from Donnis that bring Atlanta and Japan together in way that has never been heard before.
