2012 Preview, Part 2

by

We here at the GigGuide.tw office have gotten antsy - there's so much fun to look forward to that we can't sit still.

But we were able to channel that restless energy into something productive. We've invited more bands and promotors to tell about their Dragon Year dreams.

As before, we've asked everyone the same 3 questions:

1. What are your hopes and plans for 2012?
2. Can we look forward to any new recordings/albums?
3. Will you be doing any touring?

Welcome to our second installment of the GigGuide.tw 2012 Preview!

Greggo (High Tide)

2011 was an eventful year for High Tide due to its first CD release '21st Century Dream' finally taking stock. We are arranging a short trip to Okinawa in the next few months. It will be the first venture off the island in our 5 year existence.

As for recording, we are in the process of writing new music with a slightly less traditional angle as we explore other genres albeit within the foundations of drum and bass. Don't expect a new full-length recording until early next year. The ride to spread the good vibes of reggae will hopefully envelop a broader section of the local public as ex-pat bands should not exclusively be cutting themselves off from the emerging growth of the local scene.
