JASS YANG

Taiwanese musician JASS YANG has already achieved more in his young life than most musicians dream possible. Becoming the youngest licensed street performer in Taiwan, JASS attracted the attention of renowned Asian indie label, Rock Records, and was signed at the age of 18. JASS grew up between two worlds, one with his family’s deep ties to traditional Asian culture and religions in Taiwan; the other exploring the world of music, touring and producing with Rock Records and his band – FUN4. The years that followed included award nominations such as “The Most Popular Band” at the Singapore Hit Awards, penning hits for other CPOP artists such as Alien Huang, and countless appearances at some of the biggest venues in Asia such as Taipei Arena and New Year’s Eve Concerts. After releasing two EPs (2009) and one album EXIT(2013), JASS started to reach his arms to music production and started his own production company, producing films and music. He then became the youngest music producer of films in Beijing, China. In 2016, JASS moved to London as a music producer and mixing engineer. Aiming to bring eastern traditional culture to the western electronic music scene, JASS wishes to create a brand new listening experience. He made a series of cover songs in a cultural project called “Taiwan Tempo Run” in 2016, and was soon being interviewed by BBC radio as the first “Oriental EDM” producer. JASS is now preparing for his first release as a solo, independent musician for the end of 2017. 獨立音樂人/製作人JASS楊威宇為FUN4樂團主唱兼吉他手,擁有同齡音樂人所羨慕的音樂背景:在15歲成為台灣最年輕擁有執照的街頭藝人,18歲隨FUN4簽約滾石唱片並發行兩張EP,並為小鬼黃鴻升創作成名曲《不屑》,2014年發行樂團首張專輯《EXIT出口》,足跡遍佈亞洲各大主要舞台包括台北小巨蛋滾石30週年、2013台北市跨年演唱會、超犀利趴、亞洲巡迴演唱會等等,並曾入圍2014年新加坡金曲獎最受歡迎團體。 除了在搖滾樂團扮演靈魂人物,JASS將音樂能量擴展到幕後製作與影視配樂,曾任北京華誼兄弟合作影視配樂製作人,配樂代表作品包括江西衛視《新閨蜜時代》由蔣欣、張歆藝、童瑤主演,以及廣東衛視《月供》由郭京飛、張芷溪、陳赫主演。音樂製作及演唱會製作部分曾經合作過的華語藝人包括:任賢齊、黃品源、黃鴻升、劉力揚、浩角翔起、2moro等等,為新世代最具實力的音樂人之一。 2016 JASS離開台灣以製作人與混音工程師的身份旅居英國倫敦,在濃厚的華人音樂背景以及英倫電子的渲染之下,首創融合傳統戲曲與EDM製作了一系列COVER作品《妙台灣》並成為首位受邀英國國家電台BBC專訪的華裔音樂製作人。 未完待續...
