dreams from Alex Zhang Hungtai on Vimeo.

Dreams do happen in real life.


We have been on tour since feb this year...its been a VERY LONG and productive year so far.  We are all incredibly tired but also excited to play a newly arranged live set of DRIFTERS and instrumental improvisations for this upcoming EU tour.  Can't wait to sit down at home and start working and recording on newer materials for 2014.  Bernardino is now on his solo Femminielli Noir tour in europe as well with Jesse Osbourne so go check them out, real dark berlin techno stuff.  Its really great.
We won't be playing live for a while after this tour, so come out to these shows if you can, you know we always appreciate it when the fans come out and show us love.

Shub has a solo album in the works, almost finished and we can't wait to share them tracks with y'all.  I'll be working on some solo meditation music for 2014, mostly ambient instrumentals and more film score projects, and then regroup with Shub to work on more DB material later in 2014.  Can't wait for the changes the new year brings.

On the road to god knows where 4 EASTERN EUROPE 2012

on the road to god knows where 4 Eastern Europe 2012 from Alex Zhang Hungtai on Vimeo.

This was the tour that made us fall in love with Europe.  We met so many incredible people and cumulated so many different experiences that will be forever framed in my mind.  Filmed mostly in september 2012, now looking back these footages I can already see those feelings which later became Drifters / Love is the devil...

Tumultuous times.  But tomorrow is always a new day.  Start over.  LEARN.

DB Men's style icon: Walasse Ting

Walasse Ting's paintings were a big influence on DB, but also the way he lived his life.  Drifting from Shanghai to Hong Kong, paris, New York, Amsterdam, etc.

I especially loved the tropical birds and women paintings that were a popular motif in his work.  Hyper neon romantic.  One of the inspirations behind Drifters/LITD.

I finally found out that all my favorite Madonna songs were written with and produced by the same person: Stephen Bray.  Below are some examples of his productions, and some early Madonna demos. ACE

its crazy to read about how many lifetimes Madonna lived through before she became the Madonna we all know in the 80's...
