RED’s Record Release Party

by

RED EP Release

Taiwanese electro outfit, RED will be throwing their debut EP release party on Sunday the 28th July at Taipei’s Riverside Livehouse. They will be launching their EP, 7’28 and the night will feature special guest DJ Point.

RED’s music is notable for being a musical bridge between the East and West, combining electronic music styles from house to D’n’B, with Chinese traditional influences. With a background in classical and electronic music, Pierre Hujoel adds the interplay of electronic keyboard and triggers to weave in traditional Chinese instruments and percussion dialoguing with one another, bringing a whole new kind of performance to the music scene.

Last month, the group performed for the rAsia.com Featival at Moscow’s Izvestia Concert Hall and Stariki Bar where some of Moscow’s finest monthly house music parties take place. The band recently signed an international management agreement with MusicDish LLC which runs music media brand MusicDish*China.

RED took shape in 2010 when music producer, composer, recording and mixing engineer DJ Code met Shao Shih in his studio to record the demo tape for an ad campaign. Impressed by her delicate, yet powerful vocals, he invited her to collaborate on a song of his upcoming album Asia River. With the success of the resulting song, “Snow”, whose lyrics come from famous Chinese modern poet Hsu Chih-mo, Shao Shih and DJ Code decided to form RED.
