Interviews

Read below about some of the biggest artists in the business before they come to perform in Hong Kong and Macau.

Happening tonight, the Mnet Asian Music Awards will be kick starting in Hong Kong this year. Obviously piled with a load of amazing Asian line ups; we can’t help but to also anticipate for the international celebrity performance also happening at the event.


Will this be your first show in Hong Kong?   Is there anything that you are looking forward to doing or seeing in particular?

Yeah it is! You know what, I know very little about Hong Kong so I'm really looking forward to have a look around… I have a couple of mates out there who've promised to show me some cool s**t.


Will this be your first show in China?   Is there anything that you are looking forward to doing or seeing in particular?

Yes it will be my first China show. I have played all over the world in the last few years but not China yet. I like the fact that I am going somewhere with no expectations, at least gigs wise, and I am very excited about seeing the place, China has a rich history and culture and I want to experience as much as I can while I am over there.


Will this be your first show in Hong Kong?  Is there anything that you are looking forward to doing or seeing in particular?

Yes, first in HK. I have played in Macau, and travelled through. Always fascinated me, and I can't wait to spend some time. Just wandering about wide eyed is good for me.


How did you start your DJing career here in Hong Kong?
Started playing at small events of friends, then early/warm-up sets at Yumla.

How many years has it been since you first started DJing?
I started in 2000, but then took it more seriously around 2006/08.


How did you start your DJing career here in Hong Kong?
I started as a DJ after being worked at club marketing for serval years which made me understand the clubbing scene in HK. Having lived in the UK for many years, I was surrounded by a vibrant culture that gave me the opportunity to study all aspects of music therefore I  decided to become a DJ who can bring different style of music to the crowd. Luckily I was taken by DJ Frankie Lam and DJ Ball under their labels which helped me elevate my techniques and develop my DJ career.  


You probably all know him for that gorgeous looking face of his on his works as a print model and as an actor; with that obvious fact that he is also the son of Hong Kong’s very own legendary George Lam.  But little did you know, he is also a passionate musician, with his face completely changing when he talks about music. Well spoken, quiet but determined; his performance that night spoke louder than his appearance which everyone sees at first glance.


They are one of those bands that have successfully attracted not only rock lovers; but all those other listeners who are completely not familiar with the genre. Ever since 2004, these 5 passionate youngsters; Rocky (Vocal), Man Man and Au Boy (Guitar) (with one unable to attend the interview), Sai Lo (Bass) and Gould (Drums) have strived for recognition amongst the local music industry as well as abroad, winning “Global Battle of the Bands” in China during 2008. From then on, they never stopped and have released their first album 3 years ago, delivering their modern rock music to the general public. As a complete newbie in such a genre, I had so much fun talking to these exciting faces as they journey me through their musical travels with Guinness’ Paint the Town Black event. 

One of the fathers of band sound in Hong Kong; Joey Tang from band Tai Chi is one of my dad, and my own personal favorites. Songs like “Red Mobile” and “Let me Stay” is one of those timeless classics that always gets the crowd going, singing along each word unfailingly with their hands up in the air. As an 80’s baby interviewing the most well know 1980’s band member face to face, I was thrown overboard with his strong presence and lovely sense of humor.


Will this be your first show in Hong Kong?   Is there anything that you are looking forward to doing or seeing in particular?


Yes, it’s the first time HK for me! Looking forward to see the city and feel the vibe of HK. Some dj friends of my played already here and they all told me only good things about the shows. I’am also looking forward to make a shopping trip here. A lot of brands that I like have a shop in HK.
