Cantonese spoken word raps, choral samples and cinematic soundscapes.

Triad God, AKA Vinh Ngans, has debuted on Presto!? with his first project in seven years.

Triad 黑 社 會 sees the UK-raised, Chinese-Vietnamese rapper reunited with downtempo dancehall prodigy Palmistry, who incorporates choral samples, sparse synth-lines and cinematic sound design on instrumentals for 11 of the album’s 12 tracks. The album closer, ‘Chinese New Year’ was produced by Organ Tapes.

The album follows the rapper’s 2012 album NXB, which was released on Hippos In Tanks. Palmistry’s debut album, Pagan, was released via Mixpak in 2016.
