Spotlight on Urbanscapes: 9 Maps

  Hello! How would you describe 9 Maps’ sound?  Sherin: Hello, Music Services Asia. 🙂 Among the many things it could be, on any given day it’s certainly indie-folk; oneiric; existential ramblings and visions delivered in harmonic ebbs and flows. Others have described it as a slow-burning candle, or a great partner in a traffic jam. We seem to be slowly transitioning to […]

Spotlight on Urbanscapes: Charlie Lim

  Hello! How would you describe ‘the Charlie Lim sound’?Heya! Right now it’s treading the fine line between gritty singer-songwriter/folk-rock and slicker urban/neo-soul. I think I have some twisted career death-wish to be the adopted Asian lovechild of Jeff Buckley and D’Angelo. I’m also experimenting with electronica and synthesis more and that adds a different dimension to the sound, as […]

Spotlight on Urbanscapes: Pastel Lite

Describe Pastel Lite’s sound: We are an experimental band. We combine an eclectic mix of noise samples, electronica pop, shoegaze riffs, disco beats and as well as old school vocals. However, we have this habit of exploring new things and coming up with something different occasionally. So honestly, we could not really tell you what to expect from us. What […]

Spotlight on Urbanscapes: Narmi

How would you describe Narmi’s sound? Hello! I would say that if my sound was a person, it’d be named Jason Mayer, haha! I guess you could say that my sound is slightly dream-like, somewhat comforting with just the right amount of storytelling. What are your thoughts on playing at Urbanscapes Festival and what are you most looking forward to? I […]

Spotlight on Urbanscapes: DANGERDISKO

Describe DANGERDISKO’s sound: Robotron 5000: Our sound is an unholy mix of nu disco, 80’s new wave, indie dance and of course, house music. I’d say we’re definitely heavily influenced by the whole 80’s revival movement and our key sound has always leaned towards the iconic/cheesy 80s glam era. Big reverbed snares, big spacey synths and even bigger hooks has always […]

This year has been quite amazing and […]
