Greece: Space Odyssey is a greek Uplifting Trance group that is made of 3 Djs. They play music since 1995. 10 years ago they were really famous, everyone from 15-20 years old knew them and listened to their music. Nowdays they are not that much famous but teens still listen to them. Their music is pretty good for dancing clubs or partys even though people have matched this music with drugs, but that’s not true!
One good track from this group is : Space Odyssey-Memories.(1996)
This music makes me feel free, the beat and the melody of this kind of music makes my fantasy works and my body moves without thinking.

and he has several more songs but i can`t name them all.
When i first heard him sing I thought he was a good singer and i liked his music style.
Ignite the Hope is a local underground band which plays post-hardcore music in Hong Kong. It formed in 2007. It has four members, Henry (vocals and bass), Lun (guitar), KinHo (guitar) and Nicky (drums and screams). Henry, Lun and KinHo had been friends for a long time. Once they were in the concert, they met Nicky and form Ignite the Hope.
Nicky(The drummer of the band) said, “ Each of us shares the same vision and goal, as well as similar taste in music. It is also our friendship that binds us to close each other.”
Although it plays alternate music, they are popular in Hong Kong. Ignite the Hope represents the hope of people. It hopes people all over the world can have a hope in their heart even you are in difficulty.
Nicky also said, “If I have to choose a song to represent my band, I will choose the “Can You Hear the Words of Innocence” because when we wrote the song, we often heard news about abandoned children and babies. In this song, we are questioning why those irresponsible parents could be so ruthless as to giving up their innocent children.”
When I first heard its songs, I did not feel good. The songs are really annoying. But after I listen to those songs again and again, I feel excited and full of power!
