USS at Music Matters Live 2012

USS was another band that I kept hearing people talk about during Music Matters and Music Matters Live. Naturally, I’m curious as to what is it about them that made people talk about them. After watching their performance at The Arena and the main stage at Fountain Square, I can see why people are talking about them. They’re kinda weird on stage. I mean the … Continue reading USS at Music Matters Live 2012

Manafest at Music Matters Live 2012

I missed Manafest’s performance at the main stage at Fountain Square. To be precise, we arrived at Fountain Square as they played the last 4 chords to his set. Didn’t think much about it at that point really. As I’ve mentioned in a blog post earlier that I didn’t bother to research any of the performers before Music Matters Live. So when I watch his … Continue reading Manafest at Music Matters Live 2012

Direct Influence at Music Matters Live 2012

Direct Influence is an electro/raggae group based in Melbourne, Australia. I didn’t realise that Direct Influence is actually a 6-piece band actually since only Dylan Smith and Marcus Ross were present. I first saw them performing on the main stage at the Clarke Quay Fountain Square and I found their brand of electro very interesting and unique. I have never heard electro like these guys … Continue reading Direct Influence at Music Matters Live 2012

Hill & the Sky Heroes at Music Matters Live 2012

Just so you know, Daniel dragged me to go watch Hill & the Sky Heroes’ set all over Clarke Quay throughout Music Matters Live. I think I ended up watching their set at least 2 times over the 3 days. I’d say that Hill & the Sky Heroes plays a genre of music that I wouldn’t normally listen to but they’re pretty alright live. I … Continue reading Hill & the Sky Heroes at Music Matters Live 2012

Drunken Tiger JK featuring Bizzy, M.I.B and Yoon Mirae at Music Matters Live 2012

Rounding off Korean Night at the main stage at the Clarke Quay Fountain Square was legendary Korean rapper Drunken Tiger JK featuring Bizzy, M.I.B and Yoon Mirae. M.I.B was up first on stage singing a couple of songs (which I am obviously not familiar with). The crowd went mad. I thought that people only cared about Kpop but I was wrong. Korean hip hop and … Continue reading Drunken Tiger JK featuring Bizzy, M.I.B and Yoon Mirae at Music Matters Live 2012

Clazzi at Music Matters Live 2012 at Clarke Quay

I just read the wikipedia article on Clazzi and I just realised that they’re not some unknown/indie type of musicians who are performing on the Korean Night of Music Matters Live 2012. Honestly, I do not have much impression of Clazzi as a musical group because of this one fangirl. She was screaming through the whole set. I kid you not. The first 10 minutes … Continue reading Clazzi at Music Matters Live 2012 at Clarke Quay

J’Kyun at Music Matters Live 2012 at Clarke Quay

Korean rapper J’Kyun was in da house performing on the main stage at the Clarke Quay Fountain Square on Thursday (24 May 2012) and at The Arena on Friday (25 May 2012). I must say that while I do not have any idea what he is rapping about in Korean, he left an impression on me with his music, beats and rapping skills. The other … Continue reading J’Kyun at Music Matters Live 2012 at Clarke Quay

Born to Beat (BtoB) at Music Matters Live 2012

Rookie group Born to Beat or better known by their acronym, BtoB was definitely a highlight at Korean Night Music Matters Live 2012. It was very apparent that the crowd were mostly there to see BtoB and Drunken Tiger JK + co. later in the night. There were so many fangirls there with banners that you actually can’t see shit if you were standing at … Continue reading Born to Beat (BtoB) at Music Matters Live 2012

Rhythmking at Music Matters Live 2012

When I arrived at the Fountain Square at Clarke Quay, the place was already full. Not surprising at all given it was Korean Night. Hallyu Wave was in full force alright. I arrived in time to see Rhythmking perform. I had absolutely no clue what to expect because I didn’t have the time and energy to go check out all the performers at Music Matters … Continue reading Rhythmking at Music Matters Live 2012
