I had the opportunity to participate in Lithuania's leading showcase festival and international music industry conference, What's Next in Music?, organized by the Lithuanian Music Business Association. I was joined by Warren Chien (MTA Festival | YEMA Live) and Mathew Daniel (NetEase Cloud Music), Philipp Grefer (FakeMusicMedia) and Agne Biliunaite (Lithuanian Embassy Culture Attache) on a panel called "Focus Market: China" as well as participating in "The Moment Of Truth: Foreign Experts Evaluate The Bands Of What's Next in Music?".

While in Lithuania, I had the chance to discover a vibrant music scene and sign some talented acts such as Colours of Bubbles and Sheep Got Waxed. The latter, an experimental psychedelic jazz trio who were awarded Vilnius Jazz Young Power Grand Prix, will be doing a short tour in China's southern Guangdong province, including the OCT-Loft Jazz Festival later this month.

Sheep Got Waxed是新兴的“异类”乐队里备受瞩目的一支。他们的音乐虽然复杂,却也并非晦涩难懂。乐队的成员们在演奏时都会手脚并用,用吉他、萨克斯和架子鼓,配合以多种多样的效果器和电子打击乐,展现了爵士乐、电子乐与学院派音乐的另一面。

乐队成员有着电子乐甚至重金属音乐的背景(在最初的几场演出时有些成员还留着长发),而他们现在的风格则介于自由爵士和实验电子之间,尽管依然非常难以定义。正如一位观众在看完他们的演出之后评价的那样,他们的音乐听起来像techno、footwork,与Death Grips式的trap和George Michael对早期The Beatles作品翻唱的混合体。所以说,无论你喜欢什么样的风格,Sheep Got Waxed的音乐应该都能让你过耳难忘。

迄今为止,Sheep Got Waxed已发行了两张专辑——2014年的同名专辑和2016年《PUSHY》,并在立陶宛、拉脱维亚、爱沙尼亚、俄罗斯、法国、西班牙和英国等地进行过巡演。他们曾被授予Vilnius Jazz Young Power Grand Prix,并两度获立陶宛音乐协会年度奖M.A.M.A.提名。他们也涉足戏剧和电影领域,为其制作音乐。
