In this special episode of the Japan 2.0 podcast, Matt is joined by producer/rapper Artem Koker, aka the Wild Factor. If you didn’t know already, The Wild Factor produced the new Japan 2.0 theme song!!! The Japan 2.0 crew was blown away by his awesome contribution to the podcast and knew that we had to get him on the show.
In this episode, Matt talks with Artem about how he got into music, what brought him to South Korea, how he found David and Matt’s original podcast; Two Crude Mandudes, and much more!
We also are treated to some samples from The Wild Factor’s new album “Wild Dream”, out now on Bandcamp.
Japan 2.0 would like to thank Artem again for coming on the show and for contributing a theme song for our podcast We would also like to welcome him to the ranks as an honorary member of the Japan 2.0 crew.
