"Deer Mx @ Rocks"

Deer Mx is a band that one really has to see in order to believe, feel and hear. Made up of the duo which is Adriana Martinez and Miguel Bastida, the group, originally from Mexico now based in Hong Kong, have produced and honed their craft on their own terms. From a classically trained music background Miguel brings an experience of composition and song structure while Adriana, who has studied ethnomusicology, brings a folk like presence to their music accompanied by her passion for various forms of traditional and ethnic music. This lends itself to something truly original, but represents a departure from the areas they have trained in. Pulling from a variety of influences and genres, Deer have created a musical experience that gives the listener glimpses of the greats such as Massive Attack, Bjork, Portishead and Nine Inch Nails. Their sound drifts from hard industrial bass lines with pummeling drums to lighter sounds that create a sensation of floating, of traveling on clouds. Electronic percussion to surging synths, piano and electric guitar all culminate around Adriana’s beautifully powerful and nostalgic vocals to create a piece of music that is full of contrasts. - Taiwan Indie

"Deer – The Mexican Invasion"

All the way from Mexico city, this classically trained duo is bringing a breath of fresh air to the venues of Hong Kong. - Boom Magazine

"Deer, la banda mexicana que triunfa en el underground de Hong Kong"

Deer son un dúo mexicano que triunfa en el underground de Hong Kong. Tan curiosa mezcla de latitudes arroja como resultado un proyecto musical bastante original en el que se mezclan estilos de ambos continentes para recordarnos que la originalidad sigue siendo la única manera de salir de la rutina... - Miusyk

"The New Breed Of Trip-Hop Part 4"

Classically trained and full of low slung spirituality Deer are the duo of Adriana Martinez and Miguel Bastida. Electronic percussion, swirling synth, moody piano and electric guitar all fuse around Adriana’s beautiful vocals which juxtapose from a choral to fractured (in a good way) delivery. Based in Hong Kong yet originally from Mexico, this exciting new duo definitely evoke the trip hop spirit. - Amazing Radio


From a training in classical music Deer has been able to stride the great divide to trip-hop and deliver compositions that elegantly glide around the room in elegant sweeps of floating textures. - Emerging Indie Bands


Still working on that hot first release.
