With a fusion of Hiphop, Jazz and Classical, ATP’s music is diverse. Consisting of a team of passionate emerging musicians – graduate students from the music department of Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM).
With a non-biased/non-prejudiced eardrums/implying no pre-judgments stance, ATP captures and melds everything audible. Merging sounds that are possibly considered a discord or an uncommon cross over – a fusion of sound and rhythm into a piece of art beyond music : a term we call beauty within randomness.
ATP’s music is a momentarily captured event of the composer’s melodic emotions : a reality on pause, a photograph delivered through music .
ATP has been collaborating with producers and they have come together to share a single stage with infinite ideas/influences/thoughts/dreams and direct their talents towards delivering indefinite textures into tracks. ATP is currently working on their debut Album estimated to be released early 2011.
Amirah Ali is a world pop singer songwriter whose fusion of traditional Malaysian and modern pop music was introduced to music lovers across the world through the release of her first single “Katakanlah”, featured in Bernama TV News Malaysia, a track that gained great attention from fans, press and radio from the US to Malaysia. Her forthcoming Aidilfitri EP “Syawal: Koleksi Lagu Aidilfitri” and her upcoming English World Pop Album, also wonderfully showcases this talented young artist’s unique new sound.
Growing up in Kuala Lumpur, the densely populated capital city of Malaysia, Amirah Ali was constantly exposed to the juxtapositions of different cultures and different viewpoints. In this fascinating city several languages are commonly spoken; and timeless traditions stand side by side with modern personal styles and values. Its populace subscribes to several different religious backgrounds, and traditional music, played on instruments unheard of in Western countries like the tanbura, the erhu, the gamelan and the kompang. It is this exposure to diversity that has framed who Amirah Ali is today: both as an artist and as a human being.
Musically, Amirah enjoys exploring ways to fuse aspects of music traditional to her part of the world with elements of modern Western pop. She uses traditional Malay instruments and scales to lend her songs a unique feel, blending them together with Western pop instruments and rhythms to create a style of music she refers to as “World Pop.” She hopes this style will make traditional music more appealing and relevant to the youth while at the same time showing older, more traditional communities that pop music is not “just noise.”
Amirah’s music is available at Mydin outlets nationwide (Malaysia), The Guitar Store (Malaysia), Cdbaby, iTunes, Amazon, and at her website.
DECK comprises Eric (Vocals/Guitar/Keyboards), Damon (Lead Guitar), KK (Bass), Julian (Drums/Percussion). Coming from different music background, these boys try their best to blend in their influences and bringing to you and their unique style of music.
