Speaking on the track “FUG’D UP” MIKANO explains “The idea for this project started in Seoul during my stay in May . Initially we were supposed to do a couple of performances set up by some friends but then I met producer Dayrick and made this song in an hour due to the excitement I had of just enjoying the Seoul nightlife. Actually we got more in stores but this one really stood out… also I knew director Wing already as we met earlier this year in Paris (he’s actually one of the people who convinced me to go to Seoul) , and when we discussed about a video we should shoot we quickly decided it was going to be this one. He then introduced me to Shin (steady Camera + color grading) and we all connected on a friendship level before even starting to work on anything. They later came to Paris to shoot the other half of the video as we realized we still had time to add more content in there”

MIKANO has been lucky enough to visit the four corners of the world during the first part of his life. At the age of 17, his family settled down in Paris, where he began to compose and write, inspired by the music that touched him at each stage of his life and his travels.

In 2018, he released Blind Man Dream a haunting and dreamlike EP which put him on the radar of the French and international music industry and positioned him as an artist who crossovers genres. MIKANO continued his momentum with the release of EP Melting Balloons in 2020 and AKWA 1 in 2021. The AKWA series marked a return to the artist’s purest form of creation and is named after one of Douala’ district in Cameroon, AKWA, where MIKANO spent his early years.
