In 2001, Waka X and Qewza set the foundation for the Makunouchi Bento experimental project (“lunchbox”, in Japanese). While one of them is strongly influenced by IDM, the other one has a fetish for primitive computing – spectrum, c64, amiga, atari. Their lunchbox can hold all musical styles and genres and every possible experiment or cliché. With or without rhythm, with or without noise, the guys from Makunouchi Bento process organic sound until it surprises. They transplant old and catchy cliches into exotic contexts. Their focus of their music is on how different elements follow one another to sustain a party to its peak. Repetition is key, and syncopated beats are there to back that up. Waka X and Qewza are also the founders of one of the first electronic festival in Romania, TM Base, that reached it’s 10th edition this year. They’ve been releasing since 2002, on several netlabels and you can find and download their music for free, on the internet, with a Creative Commons license.
