Editor’s Note

The Team

Buckle in! Autumn’s got some aces up its sleeve. This month we’ve been eyeing up the long-haired EDM giant, Skrillex, who is set to headline Don’t Let Daddy Know at the Expo on the 30th, and every Ultra event around Asia until then. In our A-Side this month we question why as a rocker, he turned to EDM (P16). Our B-Side this month is the phenomenal Tuxedo, aka Mayer Hawthorne and Jake One, whom we caught for questioning after their show at Summer Sonic, and ahead of their funk fest at Ovolo Southside on the 11th (P20). This month is particularly busy, so be sure to flip through our Fast Forward so you don’t miss out on the best parties and shows (P4). We give you the lowdown on the drivers at the Singapore Formula 1 this month, and a quick sweep of the best hotels to stay in (P36). We hopped over to Repulse Bay’s new, exotic Balinese eatery TRi for a weekend brunch in Boom’s Kitchen (P40), and kicked back in Honi Honi’s tropical baby sister, Mahalo Tiki Lounge, for a post-work apéritif (or two) in On the Rocks (P42). Fashionistas turn the page to our fashion spread this month, where we pair the hottest jeans with the best sneakers out there for your everday go-to look (P28), and in Health & Beauty we give you more exercise tips and a healthy smoothie recipe for the heat (P50). As always, flip over to Rewind (P62) to find you or your friends at last month’s parties, catch up on your monthly Zodiac (P58), enjoy your September, and Happy Mid-Autumn Festival! 大家準備好了嗎?秋天已經不知不覺地來到我們身邊了。

九月我們重點介紹EDM電子舞蹈音樂巨頭人物、長髮的Skrillex,他將於30日在亞洲國際博覽館舉行的Don’t Let

Daddy Know電音起義音樂節上領軍,並將會在所有Ultra的亞洲巡迴表演中現身。

今個月的A-Side,我們就深入探討Skrillex,並找出他從搖滾友變成EDM音樂人的原因(P16) 。

在B-Side裡我們訪問了才華洋溢的Tuxedo兩位靈魂人物Mayer Hawthorne和Jake One,他們剛完成Summer

Sonic的表演,並為在奧華酒店・南岸舉行的表演做準備(P20) 。

這個月的節目排得密不透風,你們記得細閱我們的Fast Forward,這樣就不會錯過最精彩的派對和節目(P4) 。我

們更為你提供本月在新加坡舉行的一級方程式大賽的賽車手內幕和資料和酒店建議(P36) 。

今期Boom’s Kitchen,我們會帶你到訪淺水灣全新充滿異國情調的峇里島餐廳——TRi品嘗一個美味的週末早午

餐(P40) 。接著在On the Rocks中,我們會到Honi Honi雞尾酒吧的姐妹店——Mahalo Tiki Lounge,在下班以後品嘗 一、兩杯加冰的醒胃酒(P42) 。

時尚愛好者就最好翻到我們今個月的時尚內頁,我們為大家配搭出最流行的牛仔褲和球鞋裝扮(P28) 。在Health

& Beauty,我們將為你帶來更多運動技巧和健康的沙冰食譜(P50) 。

一如以往,記得翻到Rewind(P62)去找你自己或你朋友在上個月派對的照片,細讀你的每月生肖運程(P58) ,好

好享受豐富的九月,預祝各位中秋節快樂!

Skrillex headlines this huge event curated by DJ Revolution, alongside The Chainsmokers, Laidback Luke, Sander Van Doorn and Sem Vox. Don’t Let Daddy Know was born in Ibiza, before jetting across the planet with huge lineups of EDM. This is the month's essential event for EDM fans.

The announcement that formative Dutch DJ Tiësto is flying into Macau has caused quite a stir. Having won his first Grammy award in February this year, Tiësto is at the forefront of dance music (and has been for nearly two decades). Apart from deadmau5’ show in July, this is probably CUBIC’s biggest dance show of the year. 極具創作性的荷蘭藉DJ Tiësto將飛往澳門演出之公告一出,隨即於港澳牽起一片哄動。在今年二月的時候贏得了他首個格林美

獎項,Tiësto一直都走在舞曲界別的尖端(並且已經接近二十年) 。除了七月尾​​deadmau5的演出之外,這次有可能是澳門嬌比本年度 最盛大的舞曲表演。舞曲愛好者萬勿錯過,趕緊去撲飛吧!

SONNY MOORE, ONCE A FRONTMAN OF SCREAMO BAND FROM FIRST TO LAST, NOW ENJOYS HEADLINE SLOTS AT ULTRA MUSIC FESTIVAL AND BEYOND. BUT HOW, AND WHY, DID HE JUMP FROM EMO TO EDM?

onny Moore, better known as Skrillex, cites rock music as his muse. Between 2004 and 2007, he was the piercedlip frontman of EMI-signed screamo band From First To Last; nowadays he’s seen bounding on speakers in front of tens of thousands of people. But the style of music that maintains his sumptuous Los Angeles lifestyle today - when he’s not 40,000ft above ground jetting over to his next show - contradicts rock music to its core. But where does this contradiction come from? How, if at all, has he transferred his musical fundamentals into the quasi8-bit drops heard roaring from the stages at giant festivals? And how did a thoroughbred ‘emo’, who grew up on The Doors, become, arguably, the most famous EDM DJ in the world? There have been comparisons to fundamental forms of music in EDM’s

S

technicality, though rarely to rock music. However much music purists might like to shoot down the idea, there is some truth in its comparison to classical composition. It’s straightforward enough to structure a basic EDM track: you need drops, build-ups, an intro and a break down. With this formula and some basic production skills you can create a track within hours. A composer in the 18th century would similarly set out to compose a piece with a certain form in mind - perhaps a sonata, or a symphony. The EDM producers, who make an often stigmatised fortune, have somehow sculpted the over-used formula into something that sets them apart from the rest. Similarly, only a proportionate few Classical composers managed to craft their structural skeleton into something of widespread intrigue. It’s farfetched

to say that a popular EDM track is as memorable as Beethoven’s 5th, but it’s a sympathisable comparison. Contrastingly, it’s difficult to think of any technical similarities between EDM and the more traditional rock music - (i.e., the guitar driven music of Led Zeppelin, The Doors or Metallica) - and a thoroughbred rock enthusiast would spit at the thought of trying. However, the live shows, which are half of EDM’s appeal, can be very much compared. To some extent, the aggression in Skrillex’s music reflects his inner screamo, and the energy of the crowd at an EDM festival must provoke the same, if not a more intense, rush of adrenaline for the performer than at a metal gig. Though where rock music has fundamentals in rebellion and emotional strife, EDM is largely void of heartfelt matter. Rather, it has a specific role to play. Essentially,

MAYBE IT WAS THE DYNAMISM AND HYSTERIA OF DUBSTEP THAT FILLED THE CHASM BETWEEN HIS ROCK MUSIC AND DANCE MUSIC an EDM producer aims to create something that succeeds in triggering a certain feeling in the listener through its obligatory pace and energy. In that rock music relies more on instrumental skill and songwriting, this is where the clashes between both cultures arise. Once of the clashes lies partly in the fact that the ever-growing popularity of EDM threatens to replace live musicians. In RE:GENERATION, a documentary by the Grammys, The Doors’ drummer John Densmore walks dubiously into Skrillex’s studio before meeting him for the first time. “It is worrisome to me,” he says, “that cultures prefer dancing to a machine [than to live music].” To the old-school DJs, it’s more a problem that EDM misrepresents and devalues traditional dance music culture. British house and techno producer Carl Cox, one of the pioneers of the UK’s ‘80s dance movement, said to Dancing Astronaut last year: “Some of these people have no clue why they are standing in front of these DJs in the first place.” In his opinion, EDM is a moneymaking construct. Why, then, did a musically proficient and industrially aware Sonny Moore take such a vast leap from screamo to Skrillex? In the same Grammy documentary, he says that originally, “[production] was just

something I liked to do.” In his youth, Moore always had a soft spot for dance music. Bullied out of school at the age of 14, his later teenage years would be spent homeschooled, regularly attending punk gigs - or whenever possible, electro raves. After a successful run with From First To Last, he launched a solo career through Myspace. The ‘Sonny Moore’ releases balanced hardcore rock vocals with light drum machines and synths. At this point he clearly found an opportunity to test out his bedroom production on the public; and a positive response triggered a dedication to the style that, two years later, would be signed to Deadmau5’s label Mau5trap. His production was at the forefront of the dubstep movement for a long while: maybe it was the dynamism and hysteria in the form that filled the chasm between dance music and rock for him. 'Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites', the title track of his second E.P., was the first track to define his knack for original production (the track now has over 200 million YouTube views and won him one of his six Grammys in 2012 for Best Dance Recording). But as the ‘EDM’ culture popularised, his music became more and more, in Aphex Twin’s words to Groove Magazine, “poppy”. His release this year with Diplo, Skrillex

unk, at its rawest, is a form of music of which we don’t get to hear too much nowadays. With a vanguard of drums and electric bass, brought to life with brass interjections and sugarplum keys, funk is the forgotten fairy godmother of dance music. Mayer Hawthorne (né Andrew Mayer Cohen) and Jake One (Jacob Dutton) have created one of the purest funk acts of the year; and it all began as a casual mixtape exchange. Mayer and Jake both have a long cultivated career in music - but neither had ever explored funk music past their personal record collections. Jake One is an established hip hop producer based in Seattle. Once part of 50 Cent’s G-Unit production team, he’s worked alongside almost all the biggest names in hip hop - including Snoop Dogg, De La Soul, Ghostface Killah, Skillz, Jay-Z, Kendrick Lamar - the list goes on, seemingly forever. Mayer, on the other hand, is a Grammy-nominated soul songwriter, branching from time to time into hip hop under the moniker Haircut. Introduced by mutual friends, the pair found common ground in old-school disco and funk music, began swapping mixtapes in 2006, and eventually decided to get together and try their hand at delving into the genres creatively.

”I WASN’T SURE HOW MY FANS WOULD REACT [TO TUXEDO]. YOU CAN NEVER PREDICT WHAT PEOPLE ARE GOING TO ROCK WITH.” - MAYER HAWTHORNE Insofar as Tuxedo’s success is concerned, there’s no doubt their respective careers in music upped the odds. But according to the duo, they weren’t sure if their fans would love or hate the idea of Tuxedo. Jake confesses, “I think it made our fans curious to hear what we had come up with. I wasn’t sure how it would be received by the people who follow me because it’s so different.” Mayer adds, “It definitely helps we had existing fans, but this Tuxedo album is very different for both of us.” He continues, “You can never predict what people are going to rock with. You just have to make what you love and hope for the best.” Aside from old-school influences, Hawthorne cites Bruno Mars as one of the only contemporary artists to have had an effect on Tuxedo, at least, in his words, “as far as the showmanship” is concerned. “We recently got to see Zapp Band perform though, and no current group is on that level. It’s like an 8 ring circus. Super inspiring!” (Zapp was a pioneering electro-funk band in the ‘70s from Ohio, who Jake and Mayer have always cited as one of their influences.) Live, Tuxedo emits an addictive energy, with band members in tuxedos and backing singers swaying their glitz-adorned hips.

That being said, Tuxedo is as much a DJ outfit as a live band. Mayer again: “Most people don’t know that we were both DJs before we started making our own music. Our DJ sets are different from anything you’ve seen. It’s really a party. Usually I drink a bit too much cognac and start singing karaoke over every song.” Sounds like he’s got the right idea. It’s an unfortunate truth that shows in Asia tend suffer from a lack of energy in the crowd, but by now we’re all well aware of the consistent success of Fresh Off The Boat shows - and with a sound like Tuxedo’s, the dance floor’s going to be packed. Plus, Mayer and Jake are fresh out of their performance at Summer Sonic Festival in Osaka and Chiba. Jake tells us, “It was amazing. Japan had shown us love in April when we did a DJ gig but [Summer Sonic] was a whole different level.” Mayer cuts in, “It was insane! I still can’t believe how many people knew our songs.” On his journey westwards, he adds, “This will be my first time in China; so I’m really excited about going to Hong Kong and Shanghai!” Catch Tuxedo for the first time in Hong Kong at Ovolo Southside on the 11th.

Amir Amor, Kesi Dryden, DJ Locksmith and Thomas Jules, released their first studio album. Despite expectations, Home was a record full of surprises. There was a preconception when Rudimental released ‘Not Giving In’ the heartfelt, brass-propped anthem about the difficulties of life - that the record would lack in gems and herald that track as its one masterpiece. Instead, the album introduced to the world some of the UK’s now preeminent vocal superstars, from John Newman and Ella Eyre to Grammy-nominated singer MNEK. The album also strayed from the expected full hour of drum and bass. In it were restrained, deep house tracks like ‘Spoons’ with MNEK. It dipped into late-night soul music in ‘Hide’ with Sinead Harnett, and stadium quality, honey-dipped ballads like ‘Free’ with Emili Sandé. From the album we took ‘Feel The Love’ with John Newman and ‘Waiting All Night’ with Ella Eyre as two more of the top, most prolific dance tracks of the past five years. With the release of Home, drum and bass became an approachable genre to mainstream ears. So, with second album We The Generation set for release in the next few weeks, what else will they bring to

the table? Julie Chu of Warner Music took our interview questions over to London, where Amir and Kesi let us in on what’s changed since Home. Amir begins, “I think our albums are a good snapshot of where we are at the time that we make it, and We The Generation is a representation of where we’ve been since the moment we finished Home, up until now. It’s basically the last three years of touring and the cultures we’ve learned about, combined with the drum and bass, house, grime and soulful music we grew up with. [In that way] I’d say it’s definitely along the same lines as the first album.” Asked about new musical influences since Home, Amir continues: “There’s a lot more funk and soul in this album. We ended up working with George Clinton from Parliament Funkadelic. We worked with Donald Fagen from Steely Dan, and even went to Jamaica for a while and recorded some more reggae influenced things.” Kesi chips in, “The album has a strong Rudimental sound, but with more of these soulful things coming out of it.” By ‘soulful things’, Kesi means strong, passionate vocal tracks. After launching Ella Eyre et al into the

When we jam out ideas for new music, they come out a lot more fluently. There’s a lot more emotion coming out through the music because we’ve bonded as friends and family. I really feel like We The Generation is some of the best music we’ve ever made.” Rudimental is already at the top, and if We The Generation is indeed better than anything they’ve done before, we’re confident it’s going to be spectacular. So, scribble down the 18th in your diary and listen out for that record. Meanwhile, let’s just hope they return to Hong Kong with the We the Generation (2015) full band sometime soon.

Dean Morris

Who Puts the BASS in HK’s Parties? ou’ve probably never heard the name Dean Morris before, but chances are you’ve danced to one of his sound systems over the last few months. As Hong Kong’s nightlife continues to rapidly expand, Dean and his V Group consultancy have been busier than ever before. In one month alone, V Group handles several of the most widely attended parties in H.K. A few of the recent events they have supported include the Rewind parties, Botellón, the Outlook Festival Launch Party, Reloop Rooftop, BOOM Magazine’s Indie Attitude party, and the PUSH event featuring M.A.N.D.Y. Their packed schedule of events takes them from the beaches of Shek O to the rooftops of Causeway Bay, and deep into New Territories sometimes all in one day! Armed with a notorious FunktionOne sound system, rated one of the best in the business, and a mean collection of K-array sticks from Italy, Dean may not be seen, but he’s certainly always heard. The Funktion One sound system is a massive block of speakers and bass bins that packs a serious punch. It’s got the kind of raw power that legends are made of. The full setup looks like a throwback from the height of the rave days, or a mythical Jamaican soundclash, but with a sleeker and more contemporary design. In addition to the many wellattended special events around town, Dean presides over a number of the city’s top clubs and restaurants, building custom audio visual systems to give guests an earful along with their mouthful. V Group, which has been around for ten years, specializes in everything from equipment rental to the design

and installation of audio and visual systems. On top of their work with underground events, they have a hand in some of the city’s most glitzy new concepts opening in high profile sites such as Times Square and the IFC mall. V Group built the systems at PLAY, Liquid, 6 Degree’s, MO Bar at the Mandarin, Mahalo Tiki bar, Gordon Ramsay’s BSK, Penthouse, Gaia, Lupa and the list stretches to over one hundred in total. In addition to being an audio and visual guru, Dean is also a Hong Kong personality whose career has taken him from being a professional stylist to a fashion photographer and beyond. One thing that perhaps runs through all of his pursuits is his deep commitment to quality and getting the job done right. Planning BOOM Magazine’s Indie Attitude party featuring Free The Robots, Dean insisted that we use a superior lighting set-up, despite having to eat the cost himself. His technical know-how and high standards are rare in business these days, and a true standout in Hong Kong. Whether it’s a rooftop party, a beachside bash, or an informal gathering of a thousand people in an amphitheater next to Lan Kwai Fong, he’s helped many a promoter realize their dreams, and turned masses of stressed out HKers into a sea of smiling, dancing people.

V Group在業界打滾已經有十年, 提供由設備租賃到專業視聽系統設計 安裝的一條龍服務。除了地下音樂活 動之外,他們還沾手一些全港最觸目 的知名場地如時代廣場和國際金融中 心商場的全新概念開幕活動。V Group 亦 曾 經 替 夜 店 酒 吧 P L AY、L i q u i d、6 D e g r e e ’s、在 文 華 東 方 酒 店 的 M O Bar、Mahalo Tiki bar、著名廚師Gordon Ramsay的BSK、Penthouse、Gaia和 Lupa安裝視聽系統,顧客名單上的名 字起碼超過一百個。 Dean除了身為視聽系統專家外, 他那本土香港人性格亦造就他由專業 的造型設計師,搖身一變成為時裝攝影 師。然而,無論他做任何事,所追求的都 始終如一,就是對質量的要求和執著, 必定將工作完美地完成。 在籌備BOOM Magazine’s Indie Attitude party featuring Free The Robots之時,儘管需要自費,Dean仍十 分堅持認為應該使用更高級的燈光設 備。他的技術和高標準是今時今日罕見 於業界的,於香港無出其右。 無論是天台派對、沙灘派對,抑或 是於蘭桂坊旁邊的露天劇場千人輕鬆 聚會,他曾幫助了許多派對主辦人實現 過自己的夢想,讓被壓力壓得喘不過氣 的香港人開心跳舞。

The Singapore Grand Prix was established in 1961, originally called the Orient Year Grand Prix, then the Malaysian Grand Prix in 1962. In 1965, it was renamed the Singapore Grand Prix after Singapore became an independent republic, but was discontinued in 1967 after a series of fatal accidents in the races on the Thomson Road circuit. In 2007, it returned in full glory at the newly renovated Marina Bay Sands Circuit, laying host to the first ever F1 night race, and the first ever Formula 1 venue in Asia. The Singapore Grand Prix has since become one of the most popular F1 races, attracting world-renowned figures and legendary entertainment from across the globe. Here we summarise the racers and cars to watch, the musicians to catch, and how to make your trip to the Singapore F1 as memorable as possible.

BOOM MAGAZINE


BOOM’S KITCHEN

Chef Conor & Chef Mustika

rom the same people who brought us the stylish Bibo on Hollywood Road, TRi is traditional Balinese cuisine, designed in the style of a gourmet restaurant on the Indonesian island. With a beach view over Repulse Bay, TRi sits on the third floor of The Pulse, boasting an airy expanse of pretty deco and spa-like scents. There’s plenty of table seating, but a true TRi experience involves booking one of the giant wicker pods, accessible via stepping stones across a bubbling stream of water. The low table is a giant slab of stone, held up by chiselled tree stumps. The seating is a struggle for taller guests - it’s designed for reclining and sitting cross-legged, but the whole experience is unique, even for Hong Kong. We went on a Saturday, for their fairly quiet second brunch sitting at 1pm. A spread of starters kicks the meal off nicely (alongside a few glasses of champagne if you’re brunching, of course). A highlight was the sugared sweetcorn with coconut yoghurt, tasting strangely similar to sweet popcorn at the movies. Another highlight was the fresh tomato and chilli salad, and a plate of wonderfully cooked octopus. The deep fried curry chicken pancakes were delicious, but a little heavy before the meaty mains.

F

The Wagyu beef cheek rendang could have been spicier. Indonesians used to use rendang to preserve their meat, and traditionally it should taste better the longer it sits postcooking. TRi’s, although tasty, didn’t seem to have been given enough time to soak in the flavours, so didn’t quite unfold in layers of flavour like a rendang in Bali would. However, the meat (if, maybe, a little too fatty for some) had just the right melt-in-themouth consistency. An essential dish at TRi is the Jimbaran BBQ pork ribs, the meat of which falls of the bone with the lightest touch of the giant gold serving fork alongside which it’s presented. The outsides are expertly charred, and the serving size is generous. Whether you’re sharing them or not, the ribs fill you up and leave a glorious, sweet aftertaste. TRi’s ambience is delicate, with nods to Indonesian spirituality that work exceedingly well. It feels like a spa getaway on the edge of Bali, with a range of piquant and colourful dishes, the relaxing sound of trickling water in the pebbled indoor streams, and stellar service. No one can complain about being overfed, but we warn you: take your meal slowly to ensure you savour every course served. Fancy a trip to Bali but can’t find time? TRi will satisfy your craving.

Mahalo Tiki Lounge

A Breath of Fresh Air

mongst all these skyscrapers, life on the island can sometimes feel quite oppressive. After a long day, stepping out on the 29th floor of the QRE Plaza into Mahalo Tiki Lounge is almost surreal. An offshoot of Wellington Street hangout spot Honi Honi, Mahalo opened at the beginning of July to rave reactions. It’s a breath of fresh air from the pollution at ground level; friendly, relaxed, and exquisitely designed. The lounge is adorned with a similar bar setup to Honi Honi, crafted with bamboo and organised in a neat spread of bottles (from all corners of the globe, of course - these are the same guys who hosted the HK Rum Fest, after all). The concept was to herald the US’ fashionable tiki bars of the ‘70s and ‘80s in a sophisticated way, and they’ve certainly succeeded. Old Wan Chai boasts a number of quirky watering holes, but Mahalo is by far the prettiest. The smoking area is about three times the size and seating capacity of Honi Honi’s, lined with giant alocasia plants and sprinkles of flowers. By its warm

candlelight, Mahalo’s early evening cocktail sessions are reminiscent of sitting by the beach on a tropical island after a day in the sun. The tropical vibe clashes stunningly with the spectacular westward view towards the Bank of China, and the passageway of skyscrapers leading up to and beyond it. The menu is bound in the style of an aged treasure map, which unfolds in a leather sleeve. Drink choices are numerous, with classics imported directly from Honi Honi - like the Mahalo Collins (recognised by most of you as the Honi Honi Collins), a refreshing take on the Tom Collins, infused with lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves and elderflower syrup. A quirky highlight on the menu is the Kaizoku, an innovative blend of wasabi, yuzu paste, coriander, fruit juices and New Grove Oak Aged Rum from Mauritius.

MERCURY REV

THE LIGHT IN YOU

Rising from Buffalo, New York, only two main members remain in Mercury Rev, namely Jonathan Donahue and Grasshopper. They spent the last 2 years producing their brand new album The Light In You, released no less than 7 years after the previous work Snowflake Midnight. In my mind, they are still a psychedelia band as their songs have always been so refined and surreal. The dream-pop track 'The Queen of Swans' is almost ethereal; 'Amelie' expresses sorrow from the past; 'Central Park East' demonstrates the feeling of loneliness and 'Autumn’s In the Air' is like a movie. 'Emotional Free Fall' has a sound as vivid as a mythical journey, though the lively psych-pop track 'Sunflower' must be the highlight of the record. All in all, a great album. 跟前作專輯《Snowflake

《The Light in You》跨越兩年的製作。在我心目中,他們仍然是一隊迷幻(Psychedelia) 樂隊,他們的歌曲總是那麼的美麗與夢幻得有點超現實。 〈The Queen Of Swans〉是如斯 美不勝收而空靈出塵的夢幻流行曲(Dream-Pop) , 〈Amelie〉的思古幽情, 〈Central Park

FOALS

WHAT WENT DOWN

It's been hard to ignore the math-rock of Oxford indie-rock band Foals since the release of 2013 album Holy Fire. In 2015, under the leadership of Yannis Philippakis, they've stepped into their most mature stage yet. With James Ford at the helm of its production, new album What Went Down has concretised the band's charismatic sound, and no doubt triggered their longawaited recognition as one of the UK's best rock bands. In title track 'What Went Down', Yannis’ passionate vocals are supported by a dazed electric organ. and a galloping, Krautrock-esque Motirik rhythm. Other highlights are the profound 'A Knife in the Ocean', the haunting balladry of 'London Thunder', and the powerful release in 'Mountain At My Gates'. 即使我仍然懷緬著英國牛津獨立搖滾樂隊Foals早年還帶有數學搖滾(Math Rock)

CHVRCHES

EVERY OPEN EYE

Last year at Clockenflap, not only did we enjoy the live performance by the trio synth-pop Band Chvrches from Glasgow in Scotland, but we also began to think about what their new projects might be. Although they kept us guessing and told nothing concrete on stage, I still looked forward to the band’s second album. As the latest work following The Bones of What You Believe after two years, there were no huge breakthroughs in the second album Every Open Eye - but the group's synth-pop tracks are unfailingly pleasant. 'Never Ending Circles' is a catchy song about heartbreak. 'Leave a Trace' stretches slightly into R&B territory, and 'Make Them Gold' recalls '80s pop. Interestingly, keyboardist Martin takes the vocals on 'High Enough to Carry You Over', and it works well. 去年在Clockenflap中,不但看到蘇格蘭格拉斯哥三人電音流行樂(Synth-Pop)樂

As debut albums go this is a disappointing one. It’s hard to pinpoint exactly why, but as a DJ and performer Seven Davis Jr’s vocals are often at the forefront, often haphazardly so, both in a live setting as well as on record. Channelling the astral funk of older acts such as Parliament/Funkadelic and Prince, but without the same musical inventiveness, Universes is assured and sometimes enjoyable, while not nearly as wild as it likes to think. 作為出道首張專輯,這張大碟令人十分失望。實在難以解釋,但作為一個DJ和表演

DARK FETISH / ONLY DREAMING

The British producer’s 2008 LP has been re-released and re-mastered, this time featuring cover art by Konx-om-Pax. This may seem premature after just seven years, but given the huge critical and commercial success of last year’s Reality Testing it’s a timely reminder of where Lone started out, with sounds that veered towards the ambient and psychedelic as well as boom-bap hiphop of the '90s. Most of the tracks here come in under three minutes before heading elsewhere.

Although Taiwanese shoegaze act Doodle's previous work had already hinted at just how heavy they could sound, the newest EP hits you right away with some dark, full-on shoegaze reminiscent of a True Widow record. From opening track 'Dark Fetish' to the more uplifting 'Only Dreaming', the sludginess permeates the record. Much like any other variation of shoegaze, the walls of sound are best enjoyed with your headphones turned up very, very loud.

and entertained by how different the street art was in each country.

After living in San Diego, how have you found America has influenced your art, if at all? Did Los Angeles culture influence you at all? The US influenced me tremendously in my art. There are so many talented artists in LA and New York. I would drive around LA in my 20s during the weekend just to discover new street art on the wall of the city. It would get me so amp’ed. Los Angeles for me was an amazing canvas that fueled my creativity from the first day I stepped in the city. Your work is clearly very much inspired by city life and street art. Have you ever done street art yourself? Do you ever want to attempt it? Yes, I used to do it when I was younger. But after a while I realised that I would rather work from my studio. I thought it would be better to be able to take my time and work more on details. I am very attracted by street life and street art; I could spend hours walking around a city contemplating the concrete walls and the street art on them.

Which material do you have most fun working with? I like to combine different techniques, but mostly I enjoy using spray paint, airbrush, acrylic, and most importantly, concrete. Why do you use concrete as a canvas? How do you create the canvases exactly? For me, building a canvas made of concrete is as an enjoyable process as painting on it. I build and sculpt every single canvas. Each art piece are made of a unique, one of a kind, hand made concrete canvas. What’s been the most fascinating and inspiring moment of the past year for you? I would say moving to Hong Kong. I was born in France and spent all my life there in the French Alps before I decided to move to San Diego in California. Over the last 15 years, I traveled extensively, and visited a lot of countries around the world. I spent a lot of hours on trains, buses, planes, and in cars. Whenever I looked out of the window, I was always captivated

How did these travels inspire your art exactly? I started paying more attention to the street art in each culture, and became more and more fasinated by it. I felt that I was connecting with the locals. I could feel their emotions, their frustration, their joy, and their jokes through the messages they had left on the walls. I became quite obsessed by the walls and the concrete. I think I became more interested in the texture of the surface than the artwork itself. Hong Kong has a growing street art culture, but what’s your opinion on it? How does it inspire you? Hong Kong has so much concrete that every time I walk down the street I become excited, because it inspires me to create new street-inspired art. 美國如何影響你的藝術創作?

美國對我的藝術創作影響極大。在洛杉磯 和紐約有很多有才華的藝術家。在我二十 多歲時,我會在週末期間駕車於洛杉磯四

周穿梭,看看城中牆上的街頭藝術新作。 這樣的旅程讓人十分嗨。洛杉磯對我來說 就是一幅了不起的大油畫,從我踏入此城 的第一天起就已開始激發我的創造力。 每件藝術品創作需時多久?

一件可能需要兩到三週。有時少些,有時 卻多於這個數字。這取決於我的感覺。

你現在還有(或)曾經有創作過街頭藝 術嗎?

有的,在我年輕的時候。但是我意識到我

寧願在我的工作室裡工作,慢工出細貨。

街頭生活和藝術對我而言是非常吸引, 所以我會花大量時間走到街上欣賞混凝 土牆上的街頭藝術。

在你使用過那麼多的創作物料之中最有 趣的是什麼?

我喜歡結合不同的技術。但我比較常用 的有噴漆、噴筆、亞加力和混凝土。對我 來說,在混凝土上作畫,光是畫畫就已經 讓人心情愉快。

每一幅畫都由我親自起草和精雕細琢。 每一件藝術作品是獨特的、獨一無二、手 工製作的混凝土油畫。

對你來說,過去的一年中那個激發了你 創作的有趣時刻是什麼?

我會說是移居香港的時候。

我生於法國,在決定搬到加州聖迭戈前 一直住在法國阿爾卑斯山區。在過去的 十五年裡,我經常在世界各地旅行,到過 很多不同國家。我在火車、巴士、汽車、飛

機之上花了不少時間,每當從窗戶外望, 碰上街頭藝術,總是讓我著迷。我開始更

加關注那些街頭藝術,並變得越來越痴 迷,因為我覺得我像是和當地的人們有 了連繫。通過留在牆壁上的訊息,我能感 覺到他們的情緒、挫折、喜悅、玩笑。我喜 歡牆壁、混凝土、物料的表面質感更多於 藝術本身。

在香港有這麼多的混凝土,當每一天我

走在街上的時候,我都感到無形的興奮, 因為我可以從中受到不同的啟發,隨之 而創作出更多的街頭藝術。

Notes From The Underground Boss RC 505 Loop Station By: Sync Sing Sin

syncsingsin

First of all, I’d like to thank everyone who came and/or helped to baste the words for Hong Kong Blender 2, our event in XXX last month. What a blasting, energetic night - and thanks to Cheap Monday for all the awesome decoration and all the other sponsors too! Back to business. This time we’re testing this nice looper from Boss. What makes this so special is that Boss finally realised that there are people who use loopers other than just guitarists and singer-songwriters. It comes with a lot of desktop aimed triggers and controls, so we thought we’d ask Janni from Gravity Alterstra to do a test drive. Here’s her report: “First things first: It should be known that I am in no way close to being a tech geek. So when it comes

to selecting gear for creating music or playing live, I would need something that is user friendly, without being limiting in features. The Boss RC 505 Loop Station was what I was looking for. Firstly, on first power up, green and red lights on the buttons flare up as if it were a rave (instant thumbs up). It was also fairly easy to use without reading the instruction manual beforehand. It may be small in size, but it can hande five independently controlled channels at the same time, each with their own record/play/overdub button. Hold the stop button for two seconds, and it undoes your last recorded loop. The hardware comes with a wide variety of effects to enhance performance. This is definitely designed to gear towards vocalists or beatboxers more than guitarists as it requires hands

on control. I like that it is small, and lightweight enough to carry around easily. The one downside is that there is no option to use the device using batteries. This is a downside because I prefer to record my ideas in settings where there is usually no plug accessible!” Have you tried it yet? (Special thanks to Tom lee Music) 首先,我想謝謝所有參與過或是在社

行之Hong Kong Blender2有關資訊的大 家。 (BOOM雜誌在今期的On The Streets 街頭快拍亦是攝於其派對)一個充滿能量

的晚上,大家都盡興了。 (當然也要謝謝

Cheap Monday弄了相關的裝飾以及贊助 了我們的衣服啦) 。

好,言歸正傳,今次我們試玩了一台

BOSS的RC505 Looper。特別之處乃Boss

似乎終於醒覺到世界上除了結他手以

及唱作人以外,Looper還有別的市場 需求。是以機器上多了很多DESKTOP

的操控。我們也想不到除了找Gravity Alterstra的Janni以外,我們還可以找誰 來試玩這個新一代Looper呢? 以下是她的報告;

「首先,我不是一個TECH

GEEK,

所以我在挑選器材的時候往往會從方

RC505是完全合我心意的。甫開

機我便給一大堆紅和綠的燈光給迷

住了(瞬間加分) ;基本上也不用閱讀 說明 書就可以 好好使用 了。麻雀 雖少

但它 可是能獨 立處理五 個音軌的 哦! 而且每一個上面都有獨立的record/ play/overdub按鈕,也方便的載有一

鍵清 除的功能。機體上 甚至附有 不少

效果器。我最喜歡它的小型體積,但遺

憾是它不對應乾電…我倒想帶著它

If You Don’t Know Now You Know Never Been Done By: Pro B Lam problam

Never Been Done (NBD) is a special term in the skateboarding world. It means you have to do something new, and achieve something different. It’s the spirit of skateboarding. But it’s been almost 40 years since people began skateboarding, so pretty much all of the tricks we can physically do have been done, so when we talk about NBD nowadays, it mostly refers to combo tricks, or tricks using different spots on the board. In this issue, I’m going to let you know a skateboard legend that created a lot of tricks during the 70s and 80s. Elguerial is his signature move; in 1979 and 1980 Gold Cup Series of Skateboarding he became Champion: at 53 years old, Mr. Eddie “El Gato“ Elguera. There wasn’t much street skateboarding during the ‘80s until Powell Peralta release their ‘Public Domain’ video. The street skateboarding by Ray Barbee and the Rubber Boys changed the whole scene, and Eric Koston was one of the guys who brought street skateboarding to another level in the ‘90s. The way that he popped his tricks, his trick selection in different spots and the creativity he brought into the skateboarding world is different to anything else, so there’s a lot of people who would describe Eric Koston as the Michael Jordan of the skateboarding industry. It was Eddie Elguera who found this superstar, and turned him into what he is today. Back then,

and the skateboarding scene would be completely different. Although Eddie turns 53 this year, he continues to skate. He cooperated with Vans and World Cup Skateboarding to start a competition last year called “The El Gato Classic”. Unlike any other competition, it doesn’t involve pro competitions, just amateur and legend games because Eddie strongly believes that if skateboarding honours the past and champions the future, skateboarding will never die. Eddie“El Gato“ Elguera

Eric Koston lived two blocks behind Eddie Elguera, so when Eric started skateboarding, Eric always visited the mini ramps that Eddie had built in his home. They started to skate together, and when Eddie started going to skateboarding camps over the summer, Eric was hired as his assistant. Before long, Eddie realised Eric’s true potential. When Eddie’s sponsor H-Street started a skate tour, Eddie brought Eric with him and tried to make him skate in the demo and earn sponsorship from H-Street. Finally H-Street turned Eric Koston pro, but unfortunately he soon switched to Girl Skateboard with H-Street teammate Mike Carroll. In the famous YouTube skate show Epicly Later’d Eric states that really appreciates everything that Eddie did for him. He says that if there had been no Eddie Elguera to open his eyes, there wouldn’t be an Eric Koston

Never Been Done (NBD),滑板世界

一個好特別嘅名詞,即係你要做一啲從來

無人做過嘅野,不斷創新,挑戰極限,呢樣 就係滑板運動嘅精神!但係由開始有滑板

到今時今日大大話話都有差唔多四十年, 所有可以做嘅花式幾乎都俾人做過晒,仲

點樣可以創到新花式動作呢?所以依家滑

板仔喺唔同嘅地方做一啲無人做過嘅動 作,已經算係「NBD」 。

今次介紹嘅呢位滑板手就係其中一

個 喺 七、八 十 年 代 滑 板 發 展 嘅 初 期,創

出好多唔同花式嘅傳奇人物,Frontside Rock’n’Roll,Elguerial直頭係佢嘅招牌

一樣,佢亦係1979年同1980年連續兩屆

Gold Cup Series of skateboarding嘅冠 軍得主,滑板聖經《Thrasher

Magazine》

Hall of Famer,現時53歲嘅Eddie “El Gato” Elguera。佢上個月嚟香港旅行嘅

時候,主動聯絡我地,並且免費為我地做

左個小型Demo,所以今期If You Don’t Know Now You Know就講下佢嘅事績俾 大家知。

Eric Koston嘅啟蒙老師

喺八十年代初期滑板主要係玩Vert

台,無乜人走街,直至Powell

Peralta於

1988年推出滑板片《Public Domain》之 後,Ray Barbee同Rubber Boys走街果

一part先興起街頭滑板,而Eric Koston 就喺九十年代中期將街頭滑板帶到去另

一個境界,所以好多人都將Eric Koston 比喻為滑板界嘅Michael

Jordan。而

將呢位滑板巨星發掘出黎嘅就正正係

Eddie Elguera。當年Eric Koston住喺 Eddie Elguera附近,所以Eric Koston成

日會去Eddie Elguera屋企個mini ramp 度一齊滑板,而每當Eddie Elguera試一

樣新花式,Eric Koston好快就可以做到, 兩個人成日一齊踩板,好自然地Eddie Elguera就請左Eric

Koston幫佢做

Summer Camp嘅助手,Eddie Elguera

知道Eric Koston係極有天賦嘅板仔,所 以Eddie

Elguera當有機會代表贊助佢

嘅滑板品牌H

Street出去做表演嘅時

候,佢要求帶埋Eric

Koston一齊,甚至

要求H Street開始贊助Eric Koston,幫

佢推出第一塊個人型號滑板。不過當H Street隊友Mike

Carroll自行開設新品

牌Girl Skateboard之後,Eric Koston亦 離開左H Street。喺Youtube影片《Epicly Later’d》嘅Eric

Koston特集入面,Eric

培,如果無Eddie

Elguera的話,可能無

Koston好感激Eddie Elguera對佢嘅栽 依家嘅Eric Koston,現今嘅滑板世界亦 可能無咁精彩。

The El Gato Classic

雖然現年53歲,不過Eddie Elguera

不但無放低塊滑板,仲反而更加落力,除 左繼續參加大部份傳奇組別嘅滑板比賽

每次都例必入五強之外,更聯同Vans及

World Cup Skateboarding搞左一個名 為El Gato Classic嘅滑板比賽,同一般 比賽唔同,無職業組,只得業餘組及傳奇

組,搞呢個活動嘅目的就係希望滑板文

化可以生生不息,代代相傳,Eddie話:

「如果可以加冕老一代滑手,同時俾機 會新一代,滑板文化將永恆不死。」

On the Screen Escobar : Paradise Lost By: Colm Gardner

Rating 評分:

cheesy dialogue and “cute” moments which, naturally, stand out against the backdrop of the harsh realities put forth by Escobar’s reign, which the film does such a good job portraying. Being in both the romantic and thriller genres will ultimately limit its audience to those who enjoy both simultaneously. As someone who enjoys crime films with nail-bitingly intense scenes, I found that its romantic aspect really turned me off.

22 years ago, the most infamous Colombian druglord of all time was shot dead atop a Mendellin rooftop after a 20 minute shootout with Colombian security forces. Yet today, the concern over the rise and fall of the world’s wealthiest criminal has found a new rise in popularity. Escobar: Paradise Lost, starring Benicio Del Toro as the enigmatic kingpin, showcases the life led by Escobar prior to his arrest in 1991, complete with all the intensity and brutality that entails. The film plays out as a unique blend of romance and thriller as a young Canadian surfer marries the niece of Escobar (played, respectively, by Josh Hutcherson & Claudia Traisac) and soon finds himself embroiled in the chaos of Escobar’s downfall. The film’s strengths and weaknesses lie within each name on either side of the title on its poster. Del

Paradise Lost comes full circle with a frustratingly ambiguous ending that leads the viewer to believe that the quickly perishing intensity throughout the film amounts to absolutely nothing but fully-fledged disappointment. Unfortunately for director Di Stefano, the actually very enjoyable highs of this film are suffocated by its very tangible pitfalls.

Toro provides a deeply arching biopic of the kingpin, encapsulating both the charming, charismatic demeanour of “El Patron” as well as his antithetical brutality and sociopathic tendencies as one would expect from the world’s most prolific cocaine dealer. What I found most impressive 《失樂園》 about Del Toro’s performance is that 22年前,哥倫比亞最出名的毒販巴勃 he manages to capture the politician, 羅·埃斯科瓦爾(Escobar)在Mendellin屋 the family man and the psychopath 頂與哥倫比亞安全部隊經過二十分鐘的 whilst adhering expertly to the 槍戰後,最終被槍殺。 camera’s peripheral. 然而,我們對最富有的犯罪者一生的 Th film’s main character is played 起落充滿好奇並著迷。 by Hutcherson, which unfortunately 《失樂園》 (Escobar:  Paradise  Lost) serves as a major pitfall for the film. 由Benicio  Del  Toro主演,他飾演那個神 Hutcherson’s acting isn’t bad per se, 秘的主角Escobar,展示著他在1991年被 especially towards the end - in fact 捕前的生活,  表現所有現實生活當中的激 it’s actually impressive at times. But 烈和殘酷的事實。 rather the film’s romantic focal point 這部電影把浪漫和驚悚的元素混 seriously deters from any admirable 合 在 一 起,一 個 年 輕 的 加 拿 大 衝 浪 者 quality the film holds dear. 與 E s c o b a r 的 侄 女 嫡 結 良 緣( 分 別 由 The romance is requited by Josh  Hutcherson和Claudia  Traisac主 the equally impressive Traisac, but 演) ,並 很 快 發 現 自 己 已 經 深 深 陷 入 了 even so, it’s typically perforated with Escobar的混亂並將下榻的世界當中。

這部電影的長處和短處跟其演員

和電影製作團隊有關。Del Toro可以說 是由頭到尾的演活了Escobar角色的傳

奇,呈現了「El Patron」既迷人又有魅力 的風度,以及他的另一面——殘暴和反

社會傾向,正正符合普遍觀眾認為世界 上最大的可卡因毒販該有的形象。

我發現這個電影最令人留下深刻印

象的就是Del Toro的演出,他成功地精

準拿捏到他要演出的政治家、住家男人 和精神病患者的神髓,這複雜的演繹還 要透過單向的鏡頭表現出來。這部電影 男主角是Hutcherson,可惜的是,這就 是這部電影最大的敗筆。

其實Hutcherson的演技本身並不

差,尤其是他在電影接近結尾的演出,實

際上他有時候確實令人眼前一亮。但是 這部電影的浪漫情節就真的讓觀眾沒辦 法欣賞到電影精彩的部分。

浪漫的部分是由同樣迷人的

Traisac來演出,她往往都在俗氣的對話

和「可愛」的時刻出現,並與Escobar背 景下、嚴酷的現實中形成強烈對比,電影

都把這些細節細膩地勾畫出來,也做得 非常出色。

也許,這個就是重點,但這並不一定

會帶來良好的觀賞效果。

結合浪漫和驚悚元素的電影最終通

常只會能夠迎合一部分的觀眾,就好像 當我傾向於享受犯罪片激烈場面帶來

的刺激的時候,我就會覺得浪漫劇情讓 我摸不著頭腦。我想相反的情況也會是 如此。

《失樂園》 (Paradise

Lost)有一個

令人沮喪、含糊不清的結局,導致觀眾認

為整部影片結尾草草了事,讓觀眾完全 失望,更沒有讓犯罪電影愛好者得到一 絲的滿足。

對導演Di Stefano而言,可惜的是電

影裡拍的非常過癮的高潮點就這樣被確 鑿的弊處蓋過了。
