UK-born Vietnamese-Chinese rapper Triad God explores the culture of his Chinese heritage in his exclusive thirty minute mix. Triad God’s heavy rap basslines are interrupted by clever Cantopop references, opening with vocals from Hong Kong film The Next Dai Lo before mixing in La Caution’s Thé à la Menthe – the infamous track popularized by the film Ocean’s Twelve, layered under raï hip-hop from Algerian rappers Sinik and Cheb Bilal. His self-proclaimed inspiration from “Chinese love songs and Chinese rap music” is articulated throughout with interjections from the likes of icon Hong Kong’s Ivana Wong or Ekin Cheng’s soundtrack for late 90s films Young and Dangerous.

Despite being born and raised in New Cross, Vinh Ngan is heavily influenced by the sounds, sights and culture of China, resulting in innately downtempo productions complemented by his spoken word-style Cantonese rap that discusses his upbringing in the Triad brotherhood. Triad God's first LP, NXB released in May of this year under LA-based experimental label Hippos In Tanks, the home of electronic acts Nguzunguzu, James Ferraro and Physical Therapy.
