This August, one of London’s biggest underground music promoters dollop will make their debut in Asia as they celebrate their 10th Anniversary.
To headline, we’ll be bringing over producer, DJ & label founder Doc Daneeka on the likes of Numbers, Ten Thousand Yen, 2020 Vision and Ramp, with NTS Radio duo Blackwax (Circadian Rhythms/Liminal Sounds) in support. Whilst on the ground, picked from local Hong Kong talents we’ll have the cult New Wave band, ni.ne.mo playing a live set to kick off the night.
