Spearheading the e-generation of today, Rampage On The Airwaves (ROTA) is a podcast that aims to promote local Singaporean music as well as regional and international independent music by exposing the local Singaporean community and people overseas to these artists. ROTA seeks to continually evolve and cater to the growing support for the local music industry while still focused on its aim of giving bands the much deserved exposure they need by exploiting the Internet’s fastest-growing medium, pod-casting. As Singapore’s premier independent music podcast, ROTA constantly collaborates with promoters and gig organizers to add value to these gigs and raise the profile of the podcast by organizing giveaway contests to ticketed events and interviewing the artists involved.

Hi, my name is Zul Mahmod. I majored in sculpture at Singapore’s LASALLE-SIA College of the Arts in 1997. I am an associate artist with The Substation, and one of the figureheads in the group of emerging Singaporean contemporary artists. I have exhibited locally and internationally: Thailand, Germany, Japan, Vietnam, Malaysia, Taiwan, Norway and Finland, where I completed artist-in-residence programmes in 2001 and 2004 respectively. I was selected for the 52nd Venice Biennale in Italy for the Singapore Pavilion, along with three other artists. My work is multi-disciplinary, ranging across sound, installation, drawing and sculpture. Each form is inspired and conceived in relation to objects in space. Formally trained in sculpture, I have continued to build and expand my practice over the last three years to include sculpted sound and live sound performances. MORE »

Hi, we are The Great Spy Experiment! Our music has been described as ‘a champagne-fuelled orgy of power-pop, indie, rock and dance, informed by everything except J-Lo’. As much guitar-led as it is beat-driven, with indie riffs juxtaposing irresistible pop hooks, and dance textures overlaying dance-able rock-grooves, our music is created with the dance-floor in mind and the bedroom at heart. Though only two-years old and with only an independently-released single to our name, we have played numerous gigs here and abroad. Highlights include the Baybeats, ZoukOut and SingFest festivals here in Singapore, the South-by-Southwest Festival and the San Antonio Indie Fest in Austin and San Antonio, Texas as well as an appearance at Central Park, New York. On 3 September, we released our debut album, “Flower Show Riots”. Welcome to The Flower Show! MORE »
