DECADENT SUMMER DISCO
SOAK IN THE SUMMER VIBES AT WOOBAR AS HED KANDI DJ STUART OJELAY AND CHRIS B (PERCUSSION) HIT HONG KONG ON JUNE 21
This summer, the international mega brand Hed Kandi makes its exciting return to WOOBAR Hong Kong. Hot on the heels of DJ Phoebe d’Abo and saxophonist Emma Frampton who made their stunning appearance at W Hong Kong earlier this Easter, Hed Kandi resident Stuart Ojelay and percussionist Chris B will be taking to the decks this June 21st for one night only.
Having made their globally-recognized name off the back of their compilation album sales reaching 4 million to date championing their brand of eclectic beach music, Hed Kandi has long been throwing hedonistic parties every month in every continent. W Hong Kong, the 393-room hotel designed to celebrate the emerging cultural hub that is Hong Kong, takes the global W brand's philosophy and passion for music to new levels. Always on the hunt for the-next-best-thing makes it the global epicenter of exciting new names in entertainment, as well attracting world-established acts such as Tiesto and Carl Cox to the city - making the Hed Kandi and W Hong Kong collaboration an ideal match this year.
Headlining the second collaborative party this Summer will be Hed Kandi resident Stuart Ojelay hailing from the Midlands, who has been spinning for over 15 years and performed in every continent in the world. When headlining glamorous events in the likes of Brazil, Uruguay, Dubai and China, Ojelay mixes a blend of soulful deep house, sumptuous disco and main room anthems for intimate clubs, beach and pool parties to festivals, lighting up global dancefloors. Joining him on the line-up will be the young Chris B who juggles an international touring schedule with his solo productions on the likes of funky tech-house label Toolroom Records, seeing support from some of the world's biggest DJs including Eric Prydz, Dubfire, and Luciano. Since the tender age of 18, Chris has been globetrotting with his crew of numerous A-list DJs including Roger Sanchez, Chris Lake and Basement Jaxx for the last two years.
