AOBeats and SAKIMA have teamed up for the track “Duress” off the ‘Pilot’ album. Fusing r&b, pop and electronica, it’s the perfect song to blast in your car with its bouncy beat!

Andrew Okamura – otherwise known as the multi-hyphenate artist AObeats – is quickly becoming a name to know in the international crop of forward-thinking producers. Drawing inspiration from reveled beatsmiths like Just Blaze and The Neptunes, AObeats’ self-taught skills blend the styles of pop, electronic, club, grime, and more with a wholly unique sound design and hip-hop flair. 

SAKIMA is a left-field electronic r&b pop singer-producer based in the UK. With a keen focus on bringing LGBTQ+ narratives to the pop music sphere without any filtering or censorship, SAKIMA sets the stage for his boundry pushing lyricism and sonic style.
