about

New species of dance music grooves is born in the forest of concrete and data. Following the single “Sheng” on Do Hits Vol.1, putting together various sound elements, fusing traditional and dance music in the oriental context, Jason Hou returns with his album Sheng, as a milestone for his musical adventure from 2013 to 2015.

“Qi” is the repeated breath of the universe; “Shrine” records the oldest temple of Beijing; “Mantra” chants the mysterious sacred words. Reconstructing “Peking” of Beijing Melodic Metal band Frosty Eve, “Peking 2045” depicts a cyber-punk futuristic city of Beijing. A longer version of “Sheng” captures a thunder-rumbling, stormy evening in the forest. “Martial” represents Chinese philosophy in the future electrified war. “Havoc” takes in Chinese opera, putting on a show of the Monkey King rioting in the Heaven. “Stardust” tells the story of the last human beings entering the unknown space after the apocalypse.
