Merry Lamb Lamb, Miso Extra and aimei 媚 usher in the Year of the Dragon with a brand new release ‘Better’, the result of an inspiring music writing camp organised by Platoon’s ‘She Runs The Board’, ‘she’ and ESEA Music, the community for the UK’s East and South East Asian music industry. Shining a light on the ESEA music community and female producers, songwriters & engineers in the industry, it’s a project close to the artist’s hearts.

’Better’ is a stunning mélange of sultry RnB, pared down dubstep and rich techno grooves, a colourful tapestry of sounds seamlessly brought together through the intrinsic interactions between Merry Lamb Lamb’s deft production pairing naturally with Miso Extra’s and aimei 媚’s understated, evocative delivery.

Merry Lamb Lamb says: “It’s interesting to have different mixtures of people coming together with very different personalities that bring something new to the table.” Merry also comments about the single: “A broken heart is like a ghost always following me around. It made me breathless and tired, but I will be better without you because my future self is waiting for me ahead in the line.”

Hong Kong, London based producer Merry Lamb Lamb joined fellow Hong Kong born, Japanese British singer-songwriter Miso Extra and Chinese-British newcomer aimei 媚’ for a 3-day writing camp over Summer and everything just clicked.

aimei 媚 adds: “Merry is a very strong producer and Emily (Miso Extra) is an equally impressive lyricist. To be able to work with other females who are also Asian has felt natural and at home.”

Miso Extra goes on to add: “To me Merry’s production is so euphoric and Aimei’s vocals carry with them a youthful hope so it was hard not to write lyrics to it that carried a sense of optimism. It’s really interesting to see how they work and how they construct their music, it is definitely a big learning experience for me.”

This coming together of minds was made possible through Platoon’s ’She Runs The Boards’ writing camp in partnership with ESEA Music and creative organisation Drinks were also provided by female asian-led health drinks brand, Good Jamu.

For this brand new program, ESEA Music worked with Platoon to curate and A&R the artists’ group sessions that took place across 3 full days at Platoon’s new state of the art Platoon 7 Studios over in Tileyard London. The aim was to shine a light on the ESEA Music community and to increase the number and visibility of female producers, songwriters & engineers in the industry.

These sessions resulted in 2 brilliant singles from each of the artist groups, the first of which was MEYY x object blue’s ’Shut Up’ in November 2023 and Merry Lamb Lamb’s ‘Better’ featuring Miso Extra and aimei 媚.
