    Yoo Doo Right

    Inspired by the pounding rhythmic improvisations found in krautrock, experimental trio Yoo Doo Right (Montréal, CA) wed noisy, melodic guitar parts, effect-heavy synthesizer soundscapes, nonchalant bass grooves, and patented percussive furies into a literal wall of sound. Solemn, chin-to-chest vocals dance in and out of the primordial sonic spectrum, creating a warm pillow to rest a weary head upon. In their honest approach to experimentation, YDR engages with elements of shoegaze, post-rock, and psychedelia, crafting a unique sound that could be described as a “car crash in slow motion”.

    - The Crew -

    Eric de Fontenay

    Founder, Manager

    Eric is the founder of MusicDish*China. With more than 20 years of experience in the Western music market and a unique vision, he decided to enter the Chinese independent music market in 2009, to provide Chinese music lovers with talented overseas bands, as well as assist overseas musicians in music distribution, sales, and tour planning across Greater China. Currently, Eric is the overseas agent of popular Chinese rock band Second Hand Rose, Gemini, and Iron Kite.


    Head of Domestic Music

    I follow Chinese independent music, and am looking forward to all types of music that is expressed sincerely. I seek personal growth alongside music, while attempting to become a little "screw" in the music industry.


    Yifan Wang is a graduating senior studying Music Industry Studies at California State University, Northridge. He has always been passionate about discovering different music styles and bridging the cultural gap with music/sound technology between China and the US. After various experiences working with local musicians and sound engineers, he’s now looking forward to applying his knowledge and hoping to share those incredible Chinese indie music with people all around the world.


    Singer/Songwriter Xinchen Tang is an adventurous and creative spirit. She spent several years traveling the globe on her own, immersing herself in new cultures. Her writing is influenced by the experiences she had during her travels. In China, Kelsey received a degree from The Sichuan Conservatory in music, one of the few music universities in China. At this school, she joined a K-pop-style girl group as a rapper, singer, and dancer. Her music is noted for emotional vocals and lyrics, and reflects sensitivity and soulful fire, but Kelsey also enjoys writing and performing Rap. Music is the most important part of Xinchen’s life -as she always says, “I can live without a boyfriend, but I can’t live without music.”


    As a senior pursuing BM in violin performance at UCLA - Herb Alpert School of Music, I am also double minoring in both Visual & Performing Arts Education and Musicology. As a Chinese-American, I grew up appreciating music from diverse cultures. Playing music to me is like telling an exciting story, and I can never forget people’s gracious faces when the power of music brings peace and abolishes the dust of life.

    Eva is a graduating senior studying the Music Industry minor at UCLA. With a background in classical cello performance, she is also a connoisseur of many genres besides classical music. Eva is particularly passionate about the underground electronic music scene, and she is a huge fan of live shows. At UCLA, Eva manages Electronic Dance Music Community (EDMC), where she dedicates her extracurricular time to help independent artists build technical skills and professional connections. Eva hopes to pursue a career in live event promotion while enjoying the creative side of music in her free time.


    Indie music lover, a college student majoring in films&drama/arts management, always hungry for new experiences. She truly hopes the indie music market can get better and better.


    Ivy was born in 1999, now doing a double degree program in Psychology and Piano Performance at Bard College and Bard Conservatory of music. I held my first solo concert in 2015; In January 2017, won the Spain “Husca” International Piano Competition in group B, first prize.


    Born in 2000, Lillian is a student in the Musicology program at UCLA. She is very passionate about music and is pursuing a career in music performance. She has participated in multiple festivals and competitions and studies with various violin virtuosi.


    I am a college student majoring in economics, also minoring in communication & music industry at UCD. An interesting saying is that the best way to memorize a moment is by listening to music, then you can feel the mood of that time forever as soon as you hear the familiar melody. That’s why I love music, music composes life's flavor.
