We don’t know much about mysterious new Tampa Bay artist Young Muji—except that he sometimes raps in Japanese—but his new album “True Harmony” tells us we want to know more.

Produced by Teenslug, the 8-song, 15-minute release showcases promising talent, mellow beats, tight rhymes, and lots of Tampa representation. Learn more about the rapper at the DIY album release party, with a bunch of other new-to-you artists like Young Rich Rico, Partyboi Paris and Ksantanna. Sometimes you need to drive a strip mall out of Tampa city limits to discover new talent and that's ok—just wear a mask when you’re there.

Young Muji album release show. Fri. Aug 13, 7:30 p.m., $15. The Venue, Riverview. eventbrite.com
