After various changes of line-up, Kujoy has join in permanently on guitar. With Feroz on board (after the absent of Aie & Par) & officially filling the bass department. MUCK have evolved from a simple indie rock band to become more experimental with their music. Hence, MUCK have succeed in creating their own sound and style, and at the same time attracting more people becoming their followers due to their new, fresh & interesting sound.

For those of you who are unfamiliar and didn't have a chance to listen to MUCK before this, MUCK sounds can be describes as an experimental 80's american indie rock/lo-fi to noise pop. Among the bands that've inspired MUCK since the early days until now are SONIC YOUTH, DINOSAUR JR. , PAVEMENT & SEBADOH.

Estranged

Estranged started out in the year 2001 when Rich and Din were students in the International College of Music (ICOM) wanting to play rock music, therefore, they gathered a bunch of guys who had similar interests, thus, Estranged is formed. The band started off with their first ever gig in year 2001 at TwelveSI and since then, the gigs kept on coming. The band has also gone through many changes in the line up, even to this day, original lead guitarist Adzrai had just departed with the band due to furthering his studies. New grunge-influenced guitarist Hanafi replaces him. Estranged participated in the “Yamaha Asian Beat Competition” for year 2001 and managed to finish 2nd runners-up for the competition.

Right after Rock the World 4 (Malaysia’s annual rock festival) the band got inspired to cut an album. And after endless effort and all sorts of obstacles, they completed an 11 track album. The recording process took about 4 months (Oct – Dec 2004) to be completed. Thus, In Hating Memory is born. The debut album includes 10 English tracks and 1 Malay language track. The first single Velocity started receiving airplay since June 2005 followed by the second single Chocolate Syrup. Both singles were accompanied by music videos directed by “Motion Notion” and Tan Chee Meng respectively.

More on the album, the band was very fortunate as they had a chance to work with two dedicated engineers, Mr. Norman Rashid and Mr. Eduardo Garcia. Mr. Norman did the recording sessions and is very experienced as he has work with many pop Malay artists. Mr. Garcia however hails from Colombia, temporarily in Malaysia, finalized the mixing and mastering, and has exceptional talent and even a Latin Grammy nominee to his name.

A little more on the video Chocolate Syrup, the video received heavy airplay as the video had a different storyline to it, compared to other cliché rock videos. It was shot and directed by Tan Chee Meng, a local music producer/video director (the list goes on!). The band wanted a whole new concept for the video compared to the common rock videos.

Rabiyas

winwin seorang gadis : lyric
Category: Music

jauh kau pergi bagai nak lari
hanya yang kesan ada di pipi
hati nak marah tapi tak jadi
sarung di muka penuh abadi

c/o:dirimu memang satu misteri
sukar ku cuba kau lihat nanti
hati layan teman
ku sanjungi

puas ku ayat tapi tak jadi
apa ku bilang gigi kau beri
mungkin hikmahnya terus begitu
yang penting ramai kan cemburu

dirimu memang satu misteri
sukar ku cuba kau lihat nanti
hati layan teman
ku sanjungi

Estrella

Estrella originally formed as a trio back in 2006, then shrunk to a duo, armed with their guitars and heartfelt tunes. Singer/guitarist Liyana and lead guitarist Yob began circulating the local music scene with their own brand of acoustic music. Numerous open-mic sessions and gigs at notable shows around town namely Moonshine, Troubadours, Doppelganger, and No Black Tie followed suit, before ultimately capturing the attention of indie label Laguna Music.

After teaming up with Laguna Music in January 2007, Estrella further evolved their genre from indie jazz to a slightly more complex sound, with dreamy and spacey after-effects. Under the suggestion of producer Jeffrey Little, the strummers now became a full band - with members, Ariff Zahidee on bass, Shamsul Idzwan on percussions and Jeffrey Little himself on drums. Having worked their way to perfecting their existing and new material, Estrella’s self-titled album was released on the 28th of December 2007. Simultaneously, Estrella’s singles, ‘Ternyata’ & ‘Stay’, were released to reach-out to both the Malay & English markets...

Deja Voodoo Spells

In the first quarter of the year 2002, the Ministry of Youth and Culture of Malaysia sent representatives to Kyrgyzstan as Ambassadors for the World Music festival held there. The event saw the participation of 40 countries, including Sweden, Africa, Palestine, Germany, Russia, Uzbekistan and the United States of America.

From the Malaysian contingent, two young musicians became acquainted through a common love for music from the Rock genre a bond that holds strong to this very day.

The guitarist Rithan was selected after a series of shortlists, particularly for his contribution to the local music scene. Ainol was an obvious choice. 16 years old at the time, he had already carved a reputation for himself as a sterling drummer and percussionist.

Seeing as how the Festival was a showcase of World Music, Rithan and Ainol performed traditional Malaysian masterpieces such as the Ulik Mayang, Joget Pahang and Jong Jong Inai together with the troupe. Rithan also conducted talks and workshops covering the theory, harmony and rhythm approaches to Malaysian music from a historical perspective.

During the month-long Festival, Rithan and Ainol discovered that they shared similar influences in their individual style, as well as an insatiable love for precision-based Rock music.

Cue three weeks after the World Music Festival. Back in the sunny shores of Malaysia, Ainol contacted Rithan in the hopes that the talented guitarist would be willing to form a band together to take part in Asian Beat, a prestigious battle-of-the-bands competition that spanned the region. Rithan first declined, seeing as how he had only just begun pursuing his degree in Music. A hundred telephone calls later, Rithan finally gave in to Ainols determination and thus, the earliest incarnation of Deja Voodoo Spells was born.

Roti



Pada waktu yang sama Alif , Amin dan Jimbo sudah pun mempunyai band yang di panggil Gradiasi. Am pula pernah satu band dengan Bintang suatu ketika dahulu yang diberi nama The Stairs/Trodace tetapi sudah berpecah atas sebab - sebab yang tertentu.


Disebabkan naluri dan keinginan untuk bermain dan berkarya dalam muzik, Am bercadang menubuhkan band semula dengan line up baru dari rakan - rakan kolejnya sndiri. Untuk posisi drum, Am menjemput semula Bintang untuk menyertai band ini. Sementara itu mereka tidak dapat lagi mencari orang yang sesuai utk bermain bass, bintang yang kebetulan mengenali Api yang semasa itu juga baru berpecah dari band asalnya Mist lalu Bintang mencadangkan Api bagi melengkapkan line - up band ini.


"Idea untuk menamakan band ROTI berlaku secara spontan sewaktu kami lepak makan2 dekat kedai mamak berdekatan kolej cosmopoint.waktu itu semuanya order makanan yang sama, Roti. so secara tak langsung kami berpakat menamakan band kami dgn nama roti.antara faktor2 kami memilih nama tersebut adalah kerana roti adalah perkataan yang mudah di sebut,senang di ingat dan roti yang kami bawakan dalam versi muzik adalah 'makanan untuk telinga'."

The Rhaman


The Rhaman ditubuhkan pada awal tahun 2005. Secara asasnya, mereka terdiri 4 individu yang berkongsi minat pada muzik dan dunia mistik. Kesan daripada keinginan untuk bereksperimen dengan dengan gaya muzik tempatan, Hafidz dan Ewin telah mempelawa Hayan dan Adik bagi melengkapkan pemposisian instrumentasi pada pra-band mereka. Rentetan daripada itu maka bermulalah The Rhaman dengan Hafidz pada mikrofon dan gitar, Adik pada gitar, Hayan memainkan gitar bass secara dinamik bersama pukulan deram Ewin. Kemudiannya dituruti oleh penyertaan Abong pada sesi rakaman dan disusuli oleh Yuyun setahun kemudian.

Dengan berbekalkan inspirasi daripada bunyian 60an dan langgam tempatan beserta mood nyanyian emosional generasi bundle era 90an, The Rhaman mengaplikasikan sebaik mungkin pengamatan instrumen musikal dalam menghasilkan muzik gubahan mereka. Dan kini, The Rhaman terdiri daripada Hafidz, diposisi gitar irama, Adik, diposisi gitar utama, Hayan sebagai pemain gitar bass, Ewin sebagai pemain deram, Abong di posisi keyboard dan Yuyun di bahagian nyanyian.

Dalam arena muzik tempatan yang agak keliru dengan serbuan band-band asing dari seberang telah sedikit sebanyak membuka mata mereka untuk mengambil inisiatif bagi berkarya dengan menggunakan Bahasa Melayu sebagai medium perantaraan di antara mereka, muzik binaan mereka, dan juga ANDA.

Bunkface

Bunkface are Sam (vocals, guitar), Youk (bass, vocals), Paan (guitar, vocals) and Biak (drums). Formed in 2005, the guys recently released an EP titled Lesson Of The Season, a six-track mini album filled with pop punk goodness.

What started as casual jamming sessions among four secondary school friends ended up forming a band, Bunkface, that is now widely known as a rising star in the local music scene. Although the band was formed in 2005, it was only in late 2006 when they caught the attention of the public through their participation in the hit TV show Blastoff.

The year 2006 proved to be an exciting one for Bunkface. One of the highlights of their experience as fresh young musicians happened in March 2006 when Bunkface won first place for the Battle of the Bands competition in UNISEL organized by ROTTW. Winning the competition opened a door for Bunkface to be featured in a magazine for the very first time. Another sweet success came later that year when Bunkface snatched first place for the Battle of the Bands competition in Universiti Malaya. With that accomplishment, Demoplanet.tv approached Bunkface and offered to sponsor a video clip for the song Hyper Killer. After garnering a truckload of new experiences, Bunkface began writing more and more new songs.

In December 2007, Bunkface released their first EP titled “Lesson of the Season” featuring 6 English tracks with a taste of pop-punk and alternative rock. Fast forward to the present, Bunkface have been featured in ROTTW and interviewed on air numerous times on XFresh FM and Fly FM. They were also interviewed and featured on Era Sentral and The Wknd Sessions. Their first hit song Silly Lily was number 1 on Hitz.fm’s Malaysian Top Ten for 8 weeks and number 1 on Fly.fm’s Campur Chart for 10 weeks. Bunkface’s current hit and first Malay single Situasi has stormed to number 1 on XFresh FM and steadily stayed at number 3 on Era FM for 3 weeks. The band has performed at high school proms, charity events, product launchings, dinner galas, and gigs covering venues all around the Klang Valley, Malacca, Perak, Penang, Johor, Sarawak and Singapore. Bunkface was the opening band for Fly FM 3rd Anniversary showcase, and their very first large scale gig proved to be a success. It is no wonder that their catchy tunes coupled with their addictively energetic and fun filled performances have captured the attention of the masses and event organizers alike!
