    AXIS


    Axis is a local band from Macau. The idea of axis is all member is spinning on Herman, the vocal and bassist of the band. Founded in 2005, the band has preformed in many gigs. The line up of the band change several times, now we have Herman (Vocal, Bass) , Simon (Vocal, Guitar) , Ason(Drums). Their music is blended with Pop rock, Brit rock and Hard rock, and some different elements were added. And it’s also to conform to Herman’s idea: bringing different feeling out by every song of them.

    F.B.I.



    “Open your eyes, see the F.B.I.”

    One Gwailo and three Hong Kong guys come together to form FBI (Fire Bird International). A band which takes it’s audience on a musical journey that will blow your mind. FBI emerged from the New Territories in the summer of 2007 and since then they have been performing at various venues around Hong Kong.

    With the help of their friends, Soler, FBI has finished recording their debut EP at K-town studio. The duo’s drummer, Peter Gorton, has produced the EP.

    The EP has been given 4 out of 5 stars in local music magazine Re:spect. And has also been given 4 out of 5 stars from HK magazine. FBI’s sounds have been described as RHCP-esque. The songs on the EP range from soft pop, pop punk to hard rock. The EP features the song, ‘The Masquerade’, which won the I-cable band competition in 2007.

    The EP was originally supposed to have 6 songs to represent their diversity of sounds. But, 2 more bonus tracks have been added to give the listener extra value for money.

    In addition to the release of their own CD, FBI has also been featured on the Underground Compilation CD which showcases some of Hong Kong’s best up and coming bands. The compilation CD has also received 4 out of 5 stars from HK magazine and FBI have been lucky enough to be mentioned in the SCMP and other press due to the CD.

    “Who knew that the New Territories boasted a rival to Green Day in the cheeky punk pop of FBI?” (Nov 9, 2008 Sunday Morning Post)

    Matthew Veith



    My name is Matthew Veith. I am a musician, photographer, and artist. Raised in Hong Kong and Macau, I live quite far from the electronica scene. My journey in electronic music began from an early age when I discovered techno music and found that I really liked it. I never really had any idea how it was made and I remember wanting to find out and starting making my own. After buying a disc compilation of trance music back in 2006, I finally knew what to call the music I was craving but knew nothing about. When I discovered Garageband in 2007, I got sucked right in. I began to compose songs in the program, slowly building on my techniques and style. Then after roughly a year later, I switched to a better, more versatile program called Reason. Since then, I have been able to do much more and be more creative, constantly discovered new things about myself and new facets of my musical style. As a musician, I have intermediate Piano training, but am completely self-taught when it comes to music production. Known also as ‘MKVX’, ‘Gigamind’, and Transit Lounge, I dabble into many genres now. I produce and perform mostly trance and progressive trance, but as of late I have been diving into lounge, house, downtempo, funk, hip-hop, and even orchestral music. Music to me is it’s own motivation. Often when I listen to a song and it moves me, I want to sit down and write a song that gives me the same feeling. I have collaborated with musicians from other countries over the internet, and I am ALWAYS up for more. My goal in my music is to do what God would have me do to further his kingdom. In life we are only given enough light to see the path ahead of us, and that is how I have approached my music, to slowly, day by day, change and evolve.

     

    Never be a prisoner of your own style.” - Armin van Buuren

    VoidCamp



    Voidcamp was formed in the early 00’s as a 4-piece cover band by high-school classmates.
    However since most of its members had to study overseas, they could only get together during summer holidays.

    Not until 2008, Daniel (Vocals), Jose (Guitar) and Richard(Drums) finally met Christine (Keyboard) and Adid (Bass), Voidcamp was finally complete.
    Heavily influenced by brit-pop music they now write their own raw and catchy tunes, expressing their feelings and attitudes towards Macau’s change in the recent years.
