Malaysian lo-fi producer OnlyM and Los Angeles-based Asian-American hip-hop artist Blahza have collaborated on a brand new single ‘Perfect,’ released via Singapore-based indie label Umami Records.
‘Perfect’ envelopes the listener in waves of serene melancholic vibes while it laments the pain and struggles of life and love. Perfect for crying yourself to sleep to, the emotional rap tune wistfully recalls memories of young love with fondness and newfound wisdom. Blahza shares in a statement, “This song is inspired by the relationships I had in high school. Love isn’t perfect, and leaving a relationship is okay if both of the people in the relationship are getting hurt in the process. Sometimes it’s actually selfish to stay in a bad relationship.

“I wrote the melody imagining myself in space. I felt like the very emptiness of space was like the emptiness of a person who has been through a lot in their life. Everybody has to go through feeling empty at some point and that inspired me to do the beat.”, said OnlyM, the 20-year-old bedroom producer from Malaysia. This was his first experience collaborating with another artist. “Blahza perfectly elaborated and delivered the emotion and very chill, sad vibe that I was looking for,” the underrated electronic musician shares.
OnlyM and Blahza will be putting out 2 more tracks together this year, and Blahza will be releasing his LP, Sad Songs For Happy People over the next 12 months.

Los-Angeles based Asian-American hip hop artist and producer Blahza makes music with a larger than life sound about his afflictions, aspirations, and accomplishments, inspired by the American counterculture of the late 1960s and music from the early 2000s.
Blahza recorded, mixed and mastered Blueface’s record ‘Next Big Thing’ in 2018. In 2019, Blahza opened for Members Only at the first stop of their album tour, and released his EP ‘Bloom’. Blahza has been featured on major playlists including Spotify’s Beats & Rhymes and New Era: Asian Hip-Hop.
Born and raised in Van Nuys, of Chinese and Puerto Rican parents, Blahza grew up surrounded by music and diversity. He fell in love with rap music and especially how it bridged different cultures.
Blahza is currently working on his full-length debut album ‘Sad Songs For Happy People’ slated for release later this year.
Malaysian lofi bedroom producer OnlyM makes music which is a combination of Flume meets Kanye West with a heady dose of chillhop. The 20-year-old started producing and selling beats on social media when he was in high school and used the money to buy his first MIDI keyboard. OnlyM wants his music to be like your coffee in the morning, to get you going and do what you want to do throughout the day while being inspired.
