“I don’t think I could live without my drum, it’s part of my soul.”
Rap began his relationship with drum while he was 16, after he got inspired by various bands and drummers. Tony Royster Jr., Mike Portnoy, Jojo Mayer and Carter Beauford are his all time favorites. He formed an instrumental band, T.S. in 2007, with the guitarist and keyboardist of recent band Blaster. During the T.S. period, Rap won “Sabian Best Drummer” and T.S. won the first-runner-up award at WoFoo Teenager Band Competition.
In 2009, T.S. transformed to Blaster by invited the vocalist and bassist and Rap continued to develop his drum technique by composing and arranging various types of music with his band mates. In later days, Blaster won the champion of Hong Kong’s Yamaha Asian Beat Band Competition in 2009. The band is currently working on their debut album which should release in late 2013.
More recently, Rap has also joined an experimental percussion group, Junkit, which performs percussion-only pieces on everyday items such as buckets, pipes, and rubbish bins. With influences ranging from Heavy rock, fusion, to Jazz, Rap is a diverse and aggressive musician with a charming and energetic on-stage presence.
