Soundscape Records celebrates its 15th Anniversary next year. To commemorate and reflect on our long journey, we are very pleased to announce a series of anniversary showcases that will take place in 2016. We’ll be partnering with some of our favourite venues to present several events featuring a diverse cross-genre of artists. To kick off the new year, we will be having our first showcase at Playspace, the line-up will include Japanese math rock quartet LITE, the genre-defying SKITS, and two of the best known instrumental bands in the local scene, DIRGAHAYU and DAMN DIRTY APES. LITE will be returning to KL for the third time since their Past, Present, Future tour in 2012. The band are known for their thrilling and emotional compositions, progressive, edgy riffs and complex rhythms. Their explosive live show and tireless touring in the US, Europe and Asia along with worldwide album releases have brought acclaim from all quarters. The band has released three full length albums and several EPs including “Illuminate” (2010 recorded by John McEntire) and 2012’s “Past Present Future” which featured Caroline from Mice Parade and appearances at Fuji Rock Festival and Summersonic. The band are widely regarded as one of the most exciting to emerge from Japan in the last decade. The newly formed SKITS comprised of ex-members from Free Deserters and Citizens of Ice Cream, the band are expected to release their debut album first quarter of 2016 and has been gigging regularly, and premiering new material including the reinvention of Butterfingers’ Vio-pipe and Herbs Vendors’ Opium War. Damn Dirty Apes, one of the most acclaimed and long-standing instrumental rock group of the past decade. The band was at the forefront of a phenomenal growth in instrumental rock music in the early 90s and has shown no sign of slowing down, they are currently recording their 3rd studio album at Greenhouse Studio. Local instrumental rock powerhouse DIRGAHAYU released their debut album “Commemorate” in May and had garnered good reviews, the screen printed/handmade version was sold out within 2 months. The band has been working tirelessly, including two nation-wide tours, a split release with Japanese band NOTHINGNESS and their much talked about Japan tour.
