Formative musical experience: In my younger years I was obsessed with learning different kinds of musical instruments just for the sake being able to experience the making of different sounds, but I was terrible at playing nearly all of them. Later when I discovered DWG, with all the synth instruments and real live samples, it shook my world. I soon learnt that I am much better with arrangement and producing songs then being an instrumental musician. Nowadays, a single new interesting sound can inspire me to produce an entire track. I just wish I had this digital music making exposure earlier, but I suppose it is never too late!
Musical Guilty Pleasure: K-pop and old Canto-pop. I feel nostalgic about it because of my HK roots.
