“The ordinary feelings of life and insignificant thoughts grows stronger and huger because of the impact of sounds. Then all the accumulations turn into the poem of real life.”
DSPS was formed in autumn, 2014 from Taipei and originally by acoustic guitarist Ami Tseng, drummer Ziheng and bassist Kashin Chiang. At first, the acoustic guitar is the main element of this band. Electric guitarist Tzuchuan Hsu joined DSPS shortly after. DSPS starts to round out the current line-up. Choruses between the male and female members with these two acoustic and electric guitar sounds gradually stack up the emotions, while the complex drum patterns and steady low frequence from bass both back them up. The actual image of their combination is like a midnight-sailing boat which enjoys the serenity, waits for the dawn and is softly drifting on the ocean.
Producer, singer-songwriter, track maker. The song "Yureru" with Dengaryu, such as the albums "When Become One (ひとつになるとき)", "Musuhi (ムスヒ)" and "People", has been played 11 million times on Youtube. He produced many good songs such as "Good Time (いい時間)" and "Dream Continuation (夢の続き)".
