Sui Zhen is the alias of musician and artist Becky Sui Zhen. Her recent EP ‘Female Basic’ showcases her own version of Japanese post-punk through a dreamy balaeric-bossanova filter, moving from the intricate bedroom-pop explored on her 2012 releases Midriffs and Two Seas to create something more minimal and mysterious.
After a decade of dating DJs, Becky discovered her own love for sharing the records that inspire her own music. As DJ SUSAN she plays balearic pop, 80s bossnova, soft-disco and modern-soul – ever searching for voices reminiscent of those she hears in her head. She really likes Dip in the Pool, Antena and Robbie M.
Originally from Sydney, Becky Sui Zhen is now thoroughly embedded in the Melbourne music scene. A participant of the Red Bull Music Academy in 2010 it was there she met collaborator Andras Fox to form the duo Fox + Sui. She performs solo as Sui Zhen and in band format as Sui et Sui (with Ashley Bundang and Alec Marshall). Becky also provides vocals and percussion to Melbourne bands NO ZU and Hot Palms. Her next LP ‘Secretly Susan’ will be released on Two Bright Lakes in 2015.
In her professional life she is a creative producer with a passion storytelling across multiple platforms and varied mediums. Her focus is to bring clarity to the creative process with consistent and personable project management - from conception to completion. Becky likes to explore mistakes, tactility and ideas that age well. She makes music, digital and video for business and pleasure. And occasionally sings the ‘oohs’ and ‘aahs’ on TVCs.
