Kaz’s very first solo EP, “Code Love” is now available on streaming services, and this young man is showing that he’s ready to show why Generation Z matters. At the age of 21, this entry may well show he’s branching out. He’s also part of the Japanese boy group, Intersection.

This artist was directly involved in the production of every song on the new EP. Its release follows the June 2021 single ‘White Stallion’, which broke records on its release in China. It’s become the first song by a Japanese artist to simultaneously hit No.1 in four separate category charts on Chinese download sites.

‘Punk it up with Vault’s Fox & Hare!

21 Aug

Vault Comics
Coming November 2021

Vault is thrilled to announce Fox and Hare, a thrilling new cyberpunk series co-created by writer Jon Tsuei (Sera and the Royal StarsRun Love Kill), and artist Stacey Lee (Marvel’s SilkThe Unstoppable Wasp, Gwenpool).

When black market coder Aurora Yi uncovers top secret data that has tapped into the past lives of the citizens of Mazu Bay, her world is turned upside down. The mega corporation Synastry Designs wants its data back and is hot on her trail. Aurora has no choice but to turn to the Fox and the Hare, the most feared mercenaries in the city, for protection. Rebellion. Reclamation. Rebirth.

“I’ve always been drawn to the cyberpunk genre, but I never saw myself represented in those stories, despite their heavy usage of Asian aesthetics,” said Jon Tsuei. “I began to wonder, what if Asian people reclaimed the aesthetics of cyberpunk and centered ourselves in the narrative? As I spent time with that question, I realized that it wasn’t enough to just place Asian faces in the story. We also had to reframe the themes of new technology (cyber) and rebellion (punk) through an Asian lens.
