Mak Wai Hoo

Founder of Soundscape Records

Mak is a pivotal force behind the Malaysian local independent music scene. He is instrumental to releasing genre-defying musicians such as Liyana Fizi, NAO, Citizens of Ice Cream and Dirgahayu through his own record label, Soundscape Records. He is also one of the founding members for Live Fact, a mid-size venue  that showcases local acts and touring musicians.

He has been instrumental in building the Chinese language fringe scene in the late 1990s. In 2006, Mak has expanded his reach to the bigger urban market, bringing the likes of post-rockers Mogwai, Mono, GY!BE, Explosions in the Sky, Kula Shaker, Russian Cirlces, Tortoise, Warpaint, The Album Leaf, Tycho and many more to Malaysia.

Mak is also the backbone behind City ROARS! Festival, an annual festival that featured fringe Asian acts. He’s also the co-founder of ASEAN Music Showcase Festival (AMS), the first international showcase festival in the region.
