The Grammy-nominated French producer, DJ SNAKE, was blasted into the minds of the public after the release of his 2014 hit with Lil Jon, ‘Turn Down For What’. His collaboration with Dillon Francis on the single "Get Low" was a smash in 2014, making it into multiple movie soundtracks, while 2015 saw him join MØ and Major Lazer on the worldwide summer chart topper "Lean On".
Twin brothers Paul and James McElwain have been dropping insane tunes and playing shows under the moniker Milk N Cooks in America for quite some time, but that only scratches the surface of what these ambitious twins are up to. The use of live instruments and thoughtful arrangements combined with the high energy dance music vibe has made their live sets something you don’t want to miss.
Milk N Cooks have toured around the U.S. with multiple sold out shows and have played at some of the biggest festivals there (such as Electric Forest), and now they are bringing their risk-taking music to Asia for the first time. Already having the support from some of the biggest DJ’s and Producers in the world, such as Martin Garrix, Cheat Codes, Keys N Krates and many more, be sure to head over to Zentral on Friday, 18th November to catch their Hong Kong debut!
Despite the recent unfortunate withdrawal of South African rap-rave duo Die Antwoord from this year's Clockenflap lineup (plus LCD Soundsystem's previous pull out from the festival), the final list of acts—totalling to more than 115 international and local artists—is still very much worth your every dime. Read on for the highlights.
Wondering which electronic music artists to check out? Have a listen to some of the International electronic music artists that will be performing at Clockenflap 2016 on the Electriq stage and the Robot stage.
Acts on these stages include Berlin's Rødhåd (DE)
Danny Daze (US)
DJ Nick Höppner (DE)
Terry Francis (UK)
Jimmy Edgar (US)
Shy FX (UK)
Our favs for sure will be when SHY FX and Terry Francis comes out, the last time I think I saw Terry was about 10-12 years ago in Hong Kong. See you all there in November!
