Gonno (Beats in Space / International Feel)
Fragrant Harbour Soundsystem (FGHB)
Ocean Lam ( Cliche / HK )
Cliché and Fragrant Harbour are happy to welcome Gonno for his first apperance in Hong Kong. He is without a doubt an integral part of the current wave of house and techno in Japan. His releases have not only appeared on reputable local labels but have also made their way humbly over to the continent.
Gonno always manages to bring an acidy and melodic flavor to his DJ and live sets while still staying true to his house and techno roots. Without fail he draws clubbers in with eclectic sounds and the lost art of storytelling behind the decks/machines. As a result of his infectious sets he's played in Berlin every year since 2007 until now. Meanwhile, he released 3 split 12" from Berlin based label Merkur Schallplatten with Shingo Suwa, and the label is steadily becoming widespread to outside of EU.
Gonno's recent release "Acdise #2" dropped from International Feel Recordings in Sep 2011. Even before its release the EP had frequent play from so many DJs such as Laurent Garnier, James Holden, Francois Kevorkian, Tim Sweeney and Todd Terje, and still continues to be a phenomenal long seller. It’s no exaggeration to say "Acdise #2" is the year’s best Japanese techno tune.
Gonno is now hard at work in the studio preparing some remixes and his own album. The recent remix work is Jeff Mills' "Light Of Electric Energy" that was included in his new album "Where Light Ends", and Gonno's own EP "The Noughties" have been out from Tim Sweeney's Beats In Space Records in 2013.
