“First collab between the 2 of us and “Twilight Garden” was born! To me, it really feels like going through a process of being reborn, and finding your way through a garden in the twilight hours, piecing together your bearings and thoughts. To me, it’s more of a morning twilight rather than evening twilight, going along with the theme of rebirth.”Metic
Embark on a journey of finding yourself with this lush guitar-driven lofi.
“To me, this track is about undergoing personal development. The Twilight Garden reflects a calm state of mind – the perfect place for introspection as we venture on a journey to find ourselves.“, elaborates Axian.
Metic fuses soulful guitar grooves with laid-back hip-hop beats. While his playing is rooted in blues and fingerstyle guitar, his productions are informed by 90s boombap, G-funk, and trip-hop. A frequent collaborator and a nomadic soul, the Brooklyn-based Hong Kong native continues to draw inspiration from both cities.

Axian’s music bucks many of lo-fi hip-hop’s clichés: the overuse of the same few samples, the 45-second songs, and the splicing of cartoon dialogue onto beats. His sound – while undeniably influenced by lo-fi – is built off denser, more melodic samples, punchier, more organic drums – as well as his instrumentation, involving Rhodes keys, synths, guitars or horns. This is evident on albums like Chronos and Andromeda where his inspirations from jazz and lo-fi shine through.
