Having been making big waves with his critically acclaimed debut album, How To Make A Master Peace, Master Peace continues to solidify his status as a rising star to watch in the music industry with his new release Santiladang by connecting with Santigold in a razor-sharp rework of his track. This is yet another demonstration of Master Peace's growing presence in the indie scene, being one of the most up-and-coming artists in the current scenario.
“It was a dream to get one of my biggest inspirations on a song, especially a song that I knew I wanted her on in the first place; she was the original trailblazer and blueprint to this sound, and it feels good to get the nod from her. Long live SANTIGOLD!” responds Master Peace, whose real name is Peace Okezie and has released three EPs to date, when we ask him about the meaning of his new track, Santiladang. Welcome to a sonic landscape that is both fresh and exhilarating, which takes as its starting point the original version of the track, which was featured on Master Peace’s debut album.
The artist has not hesitated to share on social media how excited he felt after collaborating with Santigold. “It’s so special to share this track with an icon,” he says when asked about the artist he admires and with whom he has now been lucky enough to work. Drawing inspiration from an eclectic array of influences, his music defies genre boundaries, effortlessly blending elements of indie subcultures and his artistic project continues to gain new followers by leaps and bounds.
