WHAI


1) First of all, can you introduce yourself as a musician ? 请你自我介绍 。

我叫张巍,来自宁夏银川,现在长住北京,我的乐队名字:WHAI,有为什么的意义,WHAI的音乐风格是:中国迷幻!目前有多位音乐家和艺术家参加:DJ:MICKEY ZHANG,鼓手:刘淼,李帆,贝司手:三哥(欧洋),吴翘!

My name is Zhang Wei, I am from Ningxia, but in Beijing for a long time, the name of my band is WHAI, it means of course “Why”, our style is: Chinese psychedelic ! We have had a few different members: DJ: Mickey Zhang, Drummer: Liu Miao, Li Fan, Bassist: San Ge (Ou Yang), Wu Qiao !

2) What do you think of the Beijing Underground music scene ? 你觉得北京地下音乐现在怎么样?


现在北京地下音乐在九十年代来看,就是地上音乐!是纯正的西方音乐!不北京,也不地下,很快因为他们的风格名扬千里!但作为中国地下乐队的代表乐队-WHAI,我们仍然坚持努力与真正有地下味道的乐队一起合作,一同建立起中国乃至东方的地下音乐氛围!让更多人在胸中建立自我独立思考的能力与品味,能明白任何一个不同的个体都有他存在的意义,比如你的父母,你的家人,你的同学,老师,你的恋人和爱人⋯⋯

If you look at the Beijing Underground now with what it was in the nineties, to me it is not underground but on the ground ! it’s pure western music ! not from Beijing, not underground, these bands will become famous ! but as one of the representatives of the Beijing Underground WHAI will go on collaborate with more underground bands with an underground flavor to go on building a Chinese and Asian underground atmosphere ! Hopefully we will help people here build a more independent way of thinking and more independent tastes in order for people to see everyone has there own reasons to live, for example your parents, your schoolmates, teachers, lovers….

3) What’s your favorite music to listen to ? 你最喜欢听什么音乐和乐队?


我最喜欢很年轻就去逝的年轻音乐家,这种感觉无法解释,只是感觉!

I like it the most to listen to musicians who died young, I can’t explain it, it’s just a feeling !

4) How long have you been doing music ? What was your first instrument and why did you start playing music ? 你做了音乐做了多长时间 ?你是怎么开始做音乐的?

 我做音乐三十二年,是父母他们喜欢让我开始的,之后我也迷恋了,比他们更严重!

I have been making music for 32 years now, it’s my parents who let me start, and then i also fell in love with music, even more than they did !

5) What are your other musical projects ? 你有别的乐队吗?你的音乐计划是什么?

我没别的乐队!目前的计划是重复毎天的生活,久而久之,你会看到它在自然的变化!那么的自然! 

I don’t have any other bands, my plan these days is to relive the same day everyday, and overtime you will see that day naturally change, very naturally.

6) Any music you want to share ? 有没有你想分享或者推荐的音乐?

有,当然有,是WHAI新专辑里面的歌曲,我非常想与大家一同分享,希望大家可以耐心等待,顺利的话应该在2018年与大家见面![Peace]在这里我还跟大家分享一首WHAI的歌曲,巜寻找到冰山旷野生命的意义,才能够忘记一切欢乐与忧伤!》

Of course I have, the music from WHAI’s new album, I really want to share it with everybody, and I hope people will patiently wait for it, if everything goes has planned it will come out in 2018 ! so in the meantime here is an old WHAI song: “You have to find the meaning of life in the wilderness of the iceberg to be able to forget all the joy and sadness”, please listen !
