asiadeep music compilation out now on digital platforms


I am proud to finally present my asiadeep compilation on Pschent Records.
Chill electronic and acoustic, for digital release on most platforms:

French electronic label Pschent (Hôtel Costes) has commissioned me to bring together a digital music selection from Asia's rising new  generation of independent artists, the first of a series exploring the entire world.
This is a first compilation designed as a collection demonstrating Asia’s artistic vitality and diversity, from its rising new generation of artists.
In return for the love and loyalty from our fans in Asia, our aim is to recognize and promote local original talents to regional as well as worldwide audiences, curious and proud to discover fresh creativity from across the continent.
This compilation of 16 tracks is pulsating with good vibrations, eclectic and celebrating the many local scenes and regional tastes: electronica, chill, acid jazz, jazzy hip hop...

NeoFolk Asian contemporary art show in Singapore, January 15 - March 1, 2014

Our NeoFolk exhibition has its 2nd installment at Ikkan gallery, Helutrans bldg, opening January 14th for Art Stage Singapore.
With Clear Edition Tokyo and Kult Singapore.

NeoFolk2 explores the work of artists in Asia who have been rediscovering their roots and traditional crafts, by remixing and creating images inspired by their heritage.
These artists use the same visual language of their ancestors to create a commentary on contemporary Asian culture and society.
This multimedia exhibition gets under the surface of living in modern Asia. We see this form of visual expression as a search for identity, a desire to rework heritage in order to shape the future.
