A British icon or band who inspire your sound?
Massive Attack - 'Angel'
In Korea, when British musicians come to mind, young friends think about the Massive Attack. In their music, various attempts were made and refined.

Which music defines the teenage you?
Sanullim – 'Motorcycle Guitar'
I listened to this music a lot while drawing cartoons in high school. Sanullim is Korea’s representative 70’s rock band and their music is like a Korean punk.

What has been your all-time favourite gig?
The Paradise Bangkok Molam International Band
That's totally awesome!! Never miss their gig. They have appeared at include the Off Festival in Poland, Festival Mundial in The Netherlands, The Glastonbury and Field Day festivals in the UK.

What was the first song you played on repeat?
NAMI - 'Forever Friends'
She is a Korean 80s disco diva. Her low voice is charming and sexy.

A song from your favourite album?
Fariz RM - 'Selangkah Ke Seberang'
His music is soft, hot and lovely.
He is a romantic guy in Indonesia.

A song you wish you’d written?
Ravi Shankar - 'Raga Nata Bhairav'
I love Indian music. Indian music seems to be the most mysterious of all Asian music and I like sitar.

What is the last piece of music you bought?
Boyfriends - 'Greatest Hits (LP)'
Boyfriends is a from the Philippines. Their heyday was in the 1970s as one of the most prominent bands of the Manila sound, with pop and disco harmonies reminiscent of the Bee Gees.

Best song to bring people together?
Asha Bhosle - 'Dum Maro Dum'
Dum Maro Dum is an Indian Hindi song from the 1971 Bollywood film Hare Rama Hare Krishna. This music had a lot of influence on the hippies.

Best love song of all time?
Sam Cooke - 'You Send Me'
Very very lovely song.

Is there a song you like that people wouldn’t expect?
The Flybaits - 'Gelagat Anak Muda'
They are like Earth, Wind and Fire in Malaysia. Their music is very groove and funky

What new music/bands are you listening to?
Altın Gün - 'Yolcu' 
Altın Gün is a Turkish Psychedelic Folk band from Amsterdam, The Netherlands. It was 2018 that I first got to know them. Modern funk rhythms in Turkish grooves were very shocking. Their music is very progressive. They released their second album last year and are now one of the busiest bands in Europe
