EN-X (pronounced an – ex) which is short for Entity X, is an entity embodied by members from different walks of life, coming together to bring about something even greater than its individual parts; The X symbolizing the reconciliation of the heart and mind, the outer self and inner self, and faith and the soul (as seen by the two lines intersecting at a point).
We like jangly guitars, sad singer-songwriters, tambourines, doe-eyed pretty girls, jazz standards, 60's girl groups, dancing till dawn, love songs, Jens Lekman, Botanic Gardens on sunday mornings, Fort Canning Park on weekday evenings, Edith Piaf, Britpop, Audrey Tautou, hyperactive toddlers, hobos with harmonicas, group hugs, behaving like girls at gigs, cult comic books, Noam Chomsky, staying up late the night before recording sessions and falling asleep during recording sessions.
About Richard J
Richard J, born Richard Mark Jansen on August 21, 1989 is Singapore youngest talent extraordinaire to perform in Top Dawg Party twice. Richard J started composing music at the age of 12 and inspired by artistes such as Lil Wayne, Bow Wow, he then moved on to create a style of his own. He began performing at the age of 15, joining street competitions/ Battles, and in 2005, he joined his first Rap Battle as a soloist and came out victorious. With a brand new LP in the works scheduled to release in 2008, this young extraordinaire has so much more to give.
No strangers to the local scene, S.P.O.N.G.E. has performed at Suntec City, the Esplanade, HMV, and in 2007, they were one of the few bands chosen to be part of Noise Singapore’s The Apprenticeship Programme (TAP) under the tutelage of Nick Chan of Astreal and MUON fame. S.P.O.N.G.E. was set up in 2006, and after settling into the band’s current lineup, they have grown into their unique sound by utilizing elements from a vast range of influences. The band defies traditional genres of music with atmospheric lead melodies, a driving rhythm backbone and powerful vocals. S.P.O.N.G.E.
