DATO’ MAW released his latest single, ‘做自己 / 熬過來 FREESTYLE’ on August 6, featuring production by labelmates Franco.$ and Kaiote. It follows the rapper’s 2021 release, ‘佛牌 PAY ME TWICE’, which is slated to feature on his upcoming EP ‘CINA Pt. 2’ later this year.

‘CINA Pt. 1’ was released in late December 2020 and serves as the first of a series of three EPs which will form the rapper’s ‘CINA’ album. According to his YouTube channel, the album is also expected to be released in 2022.

DATO’ MAW is also the founder of Kuala Lumpur-based hip-hop collective Ban Huat Sdn. Bhd, which includes RAPKEYS and fellow Pesta Kit performer Yung Kai among the artists on its roster.

Disco-pop outfit Late Night Frequency most recently released the single ‘Sinaran’ featuring rapper and producer Ichu earlier this year in April, their first release since their May 2021 festive single ‘Pagi Raya’. The band’s previous single ‘Fun Lust Love’ was released just a month earlier in April and followed their October 2020 debut single ‘Shurga’.
