DIESEL LAUNCHES ISSUE FOUR OF "BRAVE" 'ZINE | DIESEL發佈BRAVE 雜誌第4期

DIESEL LAUNCHES ISSUE FOUR OF "BRAVE" 'ZINE FOR FALL/WINTER 2007: THE "ALIVE" ISSUE

Chapter One kicks off on October 11 with Wing Shya, Dan the Automator and 24Herbs

HONG KONG, October 11, 2007: Diesel is proud to launch Issue Four of its seasonal ’zine, “BRAVE,” as a three-part experiential art / music / fashion platform.

Aptly titled “Alive” — where the ’zine has now evolved into a real live, physical experience — the three chapters of “BRAVE 4” will feature incredibly special art-exhibition and music-showcase events each month in October, November and December 2007.

As a long-time supporter of art and music around the world, Diesel is honoured to also work with AliveNotDead.com for “BRAVE 4” to celebrate emerging musical talent in Asia. Throughout the next 3 months, a series of AliveNotDead.com music showcase events will be held as part of "BRAVE 4.” Chapter One will be launched on October 11, with three guest collaborators:

1) WING SHYA: “溫沙 – THE ARCHIVES UNLOCKED” exhibition, curated by Sean Kunjambu and Danny Chau, features never-exposed works taken over the past decade by Hong Kong’s most celebrated photographer. To commemorate Diesel’s “BRAVE 4,” the exhibition includes special portraits of indie bands and musicians who are part of the AliveNotDead.com artist community. As part of the exhibition, also look out for the interactive room featuring music videos by these featured artists and musicians. And lastly, renowned Hong Kong toy designer/artist Michael Lau pays tribute to his long-time photographer friend with special hand-drawn illustrations fused into Wing’s collection;

Superbly eclectic and old-school-cool in musical style and direction — and possibly California’s most underrated producer — Dan The Automator will perform a private live-music showcase featuring vocalist Gavin Hayes of Dredg and rapper AG of DITC;

Armed with hardcore Canto-rap lines and an underground music vibe, the group mixes local humour with street culture to add fresh vibes to a stale pop-music scene.

Inspired by three words, “Only The Brave” — the Diesel corporate identity — “BRAVE” is a seasonal ’zine that’s different in attitude, content and creativity. Previous issues have seen the Guest Art Director seat rotate from AllRightsReserved (SK Lam) to Shya-La-La (Wing Shya). And Guest Collaborators have included artist Anton Lopez, photographers Ann Woo, Dan Pak, Jordon Scott and Wing Shya, as well as stylists Chinatown, Sean Kunjambu and Sunshine. Always in fine, sweet tune with the Diesel mantra, “For Successful Living,” we are very excited to come “ALIVE” for “BRAVE 4.”

 

“溫沙 by Wing Shya – THE ARCHIVES UNLOCKED”

Exhibition will be open to the public, with free entry, from October 12-28, 2007 in Hong Kong (location will be released October 12). (11AM to 8PM daily, closed on Mondays)

AliveNotDead.com來自組合Alive的官方網站,樂隊成員陳子聰、連凱、尹子維和吳彥祖成立了Alive及AliveNotDead.com來支持及宣傳他們的電影《四大天王》,一套講述Alive經歷起跌的實驗電影。網站更為本地的音樂人提供了一個發表他們想法及對本地樂壇睇法的平台。網站的主持人相信,要維持本地音樂和電影工業的影響力,有必要培養藝人和支持者的創作力和多元化,所以,AliveNotDead.com就是為此而生存。

今天,AliveNotDead.com已逐漸演變成一個網上創作社區,為鞏固其他藝術社群而生存。除了展出本地具潛質藝術工作者的作品外,網站還扮演了不同地區及不同種族的橋樑角色,聯繫了最頂尖的藝術家和世界各地的藝術愛好者。各藝術家可與觀眾交流部落格、音樂、錄影帶、相片、新聞、宣傳活動、擴大他們的支持者,結識其他藝術家甚至合作機會等。各地支持者能透過網站聯絡他們喜愛的藝術家,發掘新的天才,及結識其他志同道合的人。

AliveNotDead.com成為了一個最熱鬧及最多人談論的網站,在這裡,潛質優厚的人可互相交流,相識,甚至發展新的合作機會。

http://www.alivenotdead.com 關於 廿四味 (24Herbs):

廿四味(24Herbs)是香港石屎森林當中的一股清泉。由六位饒舌樂手於2007年組成,是近期最炙手可熱的廣東話流行饒舌組合。這個不簡單的名字,人所共知是由本地的涼茶而來,每人試過後都有極端反應,愛上或厭惡,當然這也是一種很好的中藥。這就是廿四味的理念,你可以很喜歡或很憎他們的音樂,但他們的都是好音樂。

這六位既靦腆又態度傲慢的音樂人將他們的獨特形象帶到他們的組合當中,MC Drunk(陳子聰,演員及ALIVE樂隊成員)將他的自由和對生活的睇法帶到樂隊,DJ Dor Yuk(Eddie Chung,香港的知名監製)將不同的音樂融合在一起。MC Sir-Eats-a-Lot (Brian Siswojo, 品牌Know1edge及8five2 shop的創辦人)是最懂得攪氣氛及有一把令人難忘的響亮聲線。DJ/MC Ghost Style (Brandon Ho獨立音樂人/監製)將他的英文饒舌技巧及特別型格節奏帶到樂隊,而MCs傑和阿肥(前激進樂隊LMF成員)就維持著他們的激進態度和街頭風格。

關於 DAN THE AUTOMATOR:

Dan “The Automator” Nakamura是九十年代尾及二千年頭的著名美國嘻哈及饒舌監製,他的音樂以兼收並蓄而聞名。

Nakamura的作品融合了七八十年代的文學經典及次級的九十年代電視節目元素,他更喜歡大玩古典音樂和科幻電影的音樂,亦帶些Parliament、the RZA及Jedi Mind Tricks的嘻哈音樂影子。

Nakamura於加洲三藩市出生,小時候學習小提琴及古典音樂,年青時的Nakamura迷上了早期的電子和嘻哈音樂,後來更當上DJ。但他最終發現自己喜歡的始終是音樂監製的工作,並不斷作小型的公開演出,直到遇上Kool Keith,便成為他的轉捩點。

Nakamura的監製代表作包括Kool Keith’s的《Dr. Octagon project》,trip hop/lo-fi 集作Gorillaz。始外,Nakamura於地下音樂圈仍非常活躍,參與的作品包括:Prince Paul的Handsome Boy Modeling School、Del tha Funkee Homosapien 和Kid Koala的Deltron 3030、Daryl Palumbo的Head Automatica、Josh Haden 、Mike Patton和Jennifer Charles的Lovage等。

他的音樂還伸延到幾張流行的搖滾大碟上,包括英國組合Cornershop的“When I Was Born For The 7th Time”、Blues Explosion大碟 “ACME” and “Damage”、 Primal Scream“XTRMNTR”和Little Barrie的 “Stand Your Ground”。
