 After a working relationship spanning 4 years, that included performances across Canada for audiences of to upto 30,000 and key performances on national television, acclaimed London, Ontario, Canada-based Metis producer, multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Niiko Soul and first generation Chinese-Canadian vocalist and songwriter The 3MPR355, together known as Trans-Pacific Noise Club, partnered to create a collaborative, cutting edge, cross-cultural production duo for the ages. Their debut EP, ‘Liù Liù Liù,’ features vocals in Cantonese, Mandarin, Japanese and English. The songs are built on top of a soundscape that is both colourful and eccentric as well as distinctly contemporary, featuring innovative production; mixing a variety of current sounds from the East and West. The lyrical content reflects the young, vibrant, confident creative cultures and lifestyles of today’s youth on both sides of the Pacific Ocean. The hard-hitting Cantonese hip-pop single ‘Tick Tick Boom,’ was released in March of 2016 with very little expectation. The song went on to be picked up by Sirius Satellite Radio internationally and is streamed in countries across the world. It also became one of the first songs, performed in Cantonese, to receive airplay on a Top 40 radio station in Canada. A majority of the project was conceived after Soul spent the summer of 2016 residing in China. With no blueprint to go off of, this project creates a new identity all of it’s own. 

The duo’s first multi-track project dropped on Tuesday, January 31, 2017. The project includes the debut single ‘Tick Tick Boom’ as well as three other tracks including the successful radio single ‘#Shanghai’ featuring First Nations rapper Deya and current single ‘Dominoes,’ performed in Mandarin as well as ‘GODzilla,’ a creatively ambitious bass heavy song performed in Cantonese. 

‘Dominoes,’ which is Soul’s first solo write in Mandarin, is a warm tropical pop song inspired by the romantic late night city vibes of Nanning, China where Soul spent the summer of 2016. The video for ‘Dominoes,’ which dropped on Tuesday, March 7, was produced, filmed and edited in Nanning, Guangxi, China by Light Seekers (尋光) Productions. The video stars singer/actor Li Zi Yang (李子陽) and model Wei Wan Chen (韋宛辰,) both of Nanning. The video was made possible through regular correspondence with executive producer, 22 year old Lan Fang(蘭芳,) also of Nanning. It is also a homecoming of sorts, as lead vocalist The 3MPR355 has close ties to the province of Guangxi herself, with grandparents who were natives of the province. Collectively, the video wracked up more than 12,000 views in the first 2 weeks of it’s release in China. The EP and video are now available on iTunes, AppleMusic, Spotify, Tidal as well as all major streaming services in China.

The EP's followup single 'Firecracker' was released on May 18, 2017. 

With a great debut project under their belts and growing recognition as innovators on both sides of the Pacific, T-PNC are set to take the scene by storm in 2017.
