Bringing quality house/techno to the city since 2009, PUSH are back after a long break with an appearance by a DJ whose deep, hypnotic sound has always had a big influence on what we do: the former Peace Division member Clive Henry.
Clive is one of the most respected faces in the UK’s underground house music scene, having been one half of the genre-defining tech house outfit Peace Division and a long-term resident at Circoloco, one of the world's most (in)famous events based at Ibiza nightclub DC10.
After coming of age in London’s early acid house scene, Clive and his friend Rocky from X-Press 2 began hosting their own club nights in the emerging West London scene with guests such as Andrew Weatherall and David Holmes. It wasn’t long before Clive started playing at his own events, which led to bookings at other clubs, first in London and then across the UK.
Then in the late 1990s Clive launched the tech-house duo Peace Division with his production partner Justin Drake. Peace Division quickly evolved into a dominant force in the global tech-house scene, pioneering a deep, tribal sound best heard on classic tracks such as Body & Soul, Club Therapy and Blacklight Sleaze.
After discovering the legendary Circoloco party at DC10 In 2000, Clive became a regular feature at the club and then joined the roster in 2005. This residency brought him into contact with Crosstown Rebels frontman Damian Lazarus, who welcomed Clive into the legendary Crosstown family.
Before the 2019 season goes into top gear in Ibiza, Clive Henry will be calling past Hong Kong for a gig hosted by long-term electronic music promoters PUSH, where he will be supported by residents Frankie Lam & AKW, and special guest Darka.
The Hong Kong events organisation of DJs Frankie Lam and AKW bringing quality house/techno to the city since 2009.
Back in December 2009, a small Thursday club night called PUSH was launched in a dive bar in Lan Kwai Fong. The DJs Frankie Lam, AKW and Lukas were frustrated by the lack of events playing quality house and techno music, so decided to just do it themselves.
Three years later, PUSH has evolved into the biggest electronic music event organisation in Hong Kong, bringing a truly upbeat sound to skyscrapers and poolsides, to Hong Kong’s biggest clubs, to hotel terraces, on boats and probably soon to jet planes and aircraft carriers.
Regardless of where they are, PUSH’s primary aim is to put on a great party. Simple as that. They believe this comes from a confluence of factors such as quality house and techno music, dope sound and visuals, and – most importantly – plenty of good vibes.
Apart from promoting the best DJs Hong Kong has to offer at its monthly residency at top Hong Kong clubs, the infamous Daybreak events and countless pop-up parties around town, PUSH are also working with top European labels and clubs such as Berghain and Watergate to bring the freshest sounds and DJs from around the world to Hong Kong, the city that they love and call home.
The PUSH crew:
Frankie has earned his position as arguably the top DJ in Hong Kong through serious hard work and persistence: going from a young supporting act for all the big international names passing through town to the city’s top DJ and a respected event organiser. Frankie has more than two decades of experience as a DJ and it shows every time he takes to the decks: with unwavering confidence, he takes the listener on a journey through everything from deep techno to bubbling acid house, always with a serious emphasis on the groove.
Adam was a pioneer of the 1990s breakbeat movement in Hong Kong, and later evolved into one of the most influential DJs in the city’s techno scene. A long-standing music journalist, AKW has a love of music that stretches back decades, and this shows in his mixsets which combine everything from throbbing electro, soaring house and hard techno. As the team’s media strategist and public-relations manager, AKW has laid out the plan for PUSH’s domination of the local dance music scene – and has big ideas in mind for the future.
