After clubbing in Hong Kong for the last 13 years I have really discovered that the expats who always used to dominate the clubbing scene and who were the ones who first introduced it to Hong Kong have started to disappear. Only when a more commercial branded event happens does the true clubbing expat resurface and have a great time on the dance floor.
HONG KONG HARDCORE
King Ly Cheeâs Riz Farooqi shares his thoughts.
King Ly Chee is arguably the biggest (underground) band in Hong Kong. Their aggressive blend of punk and metal work only too well with their social and sometimes political lyrics. In the last few years, they have revolutionized Hong Kongâ s music scene by merging local and Expatriate rock cultures and introducing âHardcoreâ to Hong Kong. Their name reaches from the likes of our neighbors in Singapore and Japan to the other side of the world in America.
