Apl.de.ap: “LIGHT IT FOR ME” shows the world that Asia is in the game

A new Asian star is about to rise as BMBX releases “Light It For Me” by Singapore-based talent The Lion city Boy (TLCB), Friday August 7, 2015.

Light It For Me is a product of musical collaboration with Marc E. Bassey on TLCB’s creative journey to Los, Angeles. It is testimony to the amazing creative collaboration across oceans and cultures that has become the signature of a BMBX release.

“Marc E. Bassy wrote the demo with TYLERxCORDY. It was one of the few tracks that Tyler sent over. But there was one that got my attention immediately. Flightsch and I made some changes to the chorus that Marc initially sang and pitched it to him… Thankfully he appreciated our vision! The rest is on the final version and I’m stoked to release it.” – TLCB

The Lion City Boy also known as Kevin Lester started his musical career after leaving his successful career in Financial Marketing. He met Ap.de.Ap in 2014 and they both decided to work on new music together.

Seeing the product that is Light It For Me. Ap.de.Ap said,

“LIGHT IT FOR ME by THELIONCITYBOY featuring Marc E. Bassy moves me. Kevin has a groove full of soul and this song shows it off. I’m happy to say I’m blown away. My friends in LA too. They can’t believe LIFM is coming from Singapore/Southeast Asia. It’s totally unexpected and exciting because good music is happening everywhere and LIFM shows the world that Asia is in the game.”

Growing up in a city with such diverse cultures, TLCB builds into his emotionally charged lyrics the complexity of life and uses a mix of languages unique to a multi-racial society like Singapore’s. He blends the inspiration from experiences to the grooves of Hip Hop, R&B and Punk Rock, all musical influences from his growing up years.

LIGHT IT FOR ME will be available on all digital platforms globally, including iTunes, Spotify and Google Play, from Friday, 7 August 2015.
