Triad God – Remand
Triad God’s name came on the radar after dropping the NXB (New Cross Boys) mixtape earlier in this year. Since then the Cantonese rapping Vinh Ngan has hooked up with London producer Palmistry who has also taken on a management role for Vinh. As unusual releases go this is probably one of the most yet as the mixtape is getting a fresh mix and being released as an LP on LA label Hippos In Tanks. Remand is the lead track off the album which you can stream below but read what was said when Fact Magazine asked Palmistry to shed some light on this project.
“I moved to London after giving up gambling in 2007 to pursue music and learn music production. In 2011, I started hanging out in casinos in and around Chinatown while looking for a place to film a music video, [which is when I met] Vinh. After I told Vinh I was making music, he told me he wanted to be a rapper, from which I invited Vinh to my studio. Vinh and I share a love for Hong Kong, a place we’ve both never been. I find inspiration in Wong Kar Wai and Christopher Doyle and Vinh in Andy Lau’s Young and Dangerous films. We started recording music, working on an EP called “Aym G 4 Life” (“my boys for life”) in between watching Young and Dangerous films and hanging out and filming in Chinatown’s casinos. We formed a strong friendship, and Triad God was formed. Triad God represents Vinh’s musical output over the past year. Building on “Aym G 4 Life” comes NXB, or “New Cross Boys.” NXB follows the theme of brotherhood with his old crew: the struggles they faced, and the lasting memories they left with him.”
