For this latest Hong Kong music wrap-up, there are some especially wicked tunes!
From Sensi Lion comes a live tune, 源頭 (人類之根源) @ 搖滾不容殺人政權音樂會, which features a nice melodica intro, quality vocals, and proper live reggae vibes:
Then J-Hoon has just chopped an dropped a beat-interpolation of the early 70s track “Moroccan Nights” by Mandrill, entitled “Moroccan In China (rework).” More hip-hop than funk or soul, this has a nice groove throughout:
As posted on The Groove Thief’s Facebook page, Selekta Sev has just dropped her fully funky PARAGON mix, loaded up with rare afrobeat, funk, hiphop and more:
Two Hong Kong DJs are Croatia-bound to represent at the Outlook Festival: Blood Dunza [Heavy Hongkong] and DJ Saiyan [Magnetic Soul]. The former dropped a new dnb track that’s already gone from Soundcloud, but thankfully the latter’s exclusive Outlook Festival Global Friends mix is still available for your listening pleasure:
I just had my Free Dubs: Nox mix (all freely available dub tracks) featured on the Echo Chamber radio program out of Minneapolis, MN, USA - much respect to Dr. StrangeDub for the support! Please check out the whole radio program, it’s loaded up with choice tunes:
