-及時雨 – RAIN IN TIME
Mango532 is a story about a man and a recording machine,
Mango is a designer who lives in Hong Kong, in 2001; he bought one 4 tracks recording machine called BR532, and started to write songs and record on his own.
He defined his music style as no style music, because his music is influenced by British music, but he always think that Simon and Garfunkel’ music is his root. But in his blood, Canton pop songs are still running. So he thinks nothing can explain for his music style. So it is better to called it no-style music.
He always dream that can get a record –deal one day, but nothing happen, so after 10 years. He publishes a debut album “A day in the life” on his own; the album songs are about our pigsty life. The album is free and can download in mango532.com also www.imusicbox.hk

Rain in Time (及時雨) was established in 2008. The name is inspired by a Chinese phase which means rain before the drought. Taking this as a metaphor, the band decided to gather for passionate music with such inspiration that hope to enrich everyone’s life. After a few lineup changes, the sextet pursuits their musical aspiration with their solidarity and ambitions. With poetic lyrics and a bite of catchy electronic vibes in the genre of Alternative / Powerpop / Post-hardcore , the band has attracted new faces from Hong Kong underground band scene and remained active in various shows and gigs…….
In 2012, the band swept the awards of Best Vocalist, Best Drummer, and the Champion among 101 bands in 2012 Youth Band Competition. With the motivation of such highly proclaimed achievement, the band is busy preparing for their debut release and hopefully will hit the street in the late 2012.
