ACHUN

Achun is a Macanese electronic musician. His music style is deeply influenced by post-punk, shoegaze, etc, and has now developed into the 140bpm Dubstep sound. Achun is going to smash up the dancefloor by his trademarking dark, explosive digital noise over the solid 140bpm in a well layered live set. He released one of his best tunes to date tune earlier this year – Deeper. The remix of “Deeper” by Macau Dubstep Badboy N1D can be heard on Kongkretebass Episode 111 and is included in HEAVY Hong Kong 4th birthday mixtape.

AM444 – ‘Eye Wonder’ EP Sampler

AM444

AM444 is the new project by local vocalist ChaCha (Sub-Culture, Uprooted Sunshine) and Dutch producer Jay.Soul. After years of  thoughts, discussions and drunken promises, the pair have finally been in the studio for the past few months and have come up with some of the freshest and most exciting music to come out of Shanghai for a while. Its pretty hard to say what genre AM444 fits into, but with hints of jazz, pop, funk, hiphop and electro its sounding super dope! Their first EP, entitled ‘Eye Wonder’ is due for release in March/April this year. Check out the sampler for what to expect, and also pick up Time Out’s latest compilation cd for an exclusive non-EP track!
