Following her head-turning performance on the buzzing online Chinese electronic music reality show, Rave Now, Singaporean chanteuse-producer Jasmine Sokko, has scaled the ranks and emerged as one of its top 15 contestants. She is also the only female producer and Singaporean vying for the prize.
Currently in its first season, the show is presented by Chinese streaming conglomerate Tencent Video and produced by Tencent Penguin Pictures and Star Media Entertainment. In the show, electronic music producers more than 70 teams from China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Macau, Canada and Singapore, will square off with each other in elimination rounds for the honour of performing at Tomorrowland 2019. Much like American shows of this nature, Rave Now also features celebrity mentors who provide feedback and tips for the contestants to help them through in the competition. Season one’s guests are the panel of Mandopop star Lay Zhang 张艺兴 (member of K-pop group EXO), electronic pop starlet Laure Shang 尚雯婕, Chinese singer/actor Wowkie Zhang 大张伟 and Norwegian EDM crown prince Alan Walker.
Last Saturday, Sokko performed an original cut '1057' that was reworked to incorporate a Lay Zhang 张艺兴 vocal sample. Her impressive showing elevates her to the fourth round of the quarter finals stage. It's worth noting that Sokko has become a legitimately sensational proposition on Chinese social media: Her recent performance amassed over a million views on Rave Now's official Weibo page.
New weekly episodes of Rave Now are streamed exclusively every Saturday, 8pm on Tencent Video, from 1 December 2018 onwards. Stay tuned to Jasmine Sokko’s social media channels for constant updates on her progress.
