Who are Hong Kong’s Best Kept Musical Secrets?

Who are Hong Kong’s Best Kept Musical Secrets?

Part Two

 

   By Jamie Elizabeth Ho

There comes a point in every music seeker’s life, where what is readily available through the radio, YouTube and television, becomes stale. They begin to hear the same type of songs, and their musical journey stops at a standstill. This experience happens a little too frequently in Hong Kong. It dominates Hong Kong music especially in the bars surrounding LKF but All That Junk has found one of HK’s dirtiest DJ secrets, GHC.

GHC

Genre: Electronic/Hip-hop/Chill/GoodVibes

Musical Influences: Drake, Kanye West, KiD CuDi, Mike Posner, Ghost Style, DoughBoy, Lifehouse, Dashboard Confessional, The Fray, Coldplay, Bearson, Chainsmokers, Bee’s Knees and Tokimonsta.

Why is he one of HK’s Best Kept Musical Secrets?
GHC is definitely a talented dark house in the music scene since turning his musical talents from being a DJ to becoming a producer/singer-songwriter this year. Hearing the beats he creates gives me the chills, and a knowing that he is going to blow up and shake up the Hong Kong music industry in a big revolutionary way. It’s about time Hong Kong gets recognized for its creative musical talent and he has the potential to be an artist who will put Hong Kong on the global map of Music.

Fun fact: GHC is 24herbs’s rapper Ghost Style’s younger brother.

Favorite Hits: “Saturday Nights and Sunday Mornings” ( I love how experimental he is as a producer, putting together sounds which you normally wouldn’t assume sounds good as a pair, but when you hear it, it just clicks. It’s got good vibes, a voice with a soul, what more could you ask for?)

“Infatuations” ( A solid track, filled with a great original soundtrack that has you feeling like you’re living your own music video. This track evoked and stirred emotions in me I never knew I had!)

His Message: “For me I feel love conquers everything; when you put your heart into an activity or produce music with love, people feel it. Whether I produce an emo (sad) song, or an upbeat song, the core component is love. I hope that people can connect with my songs and bring a little bit (if not a lot) of joy into their lives as it is a gift to and from the Universe.”

Premium Sofa Club

Premium Sofa Club

 

By Sandeep Sharma

Thanks to the constant efforts of Lucas Luraka, the owner and DJ of Premium Sofa Club, this nightclub has become an affordable and immensely fun staple of Hong Kong nightlife so as Premium is about to relocate to a new location, All That Junk gets nostalgic and takes a quick peek back at the original club.

Be careful while climbing down the smoke-filled stairs to the club and remember to use the hand-rail. The tense beats pulsating from the thumping amplifiers are only further heightened by the iridescent lights radiated by the various ‘light machines’. Plush sofas and burnished tables adorn the candle-illuminated room.

The streets of Sheung Wan at midnight don’t usually come to mind when one thinks of a night out, but Premium Sofa Lounge begs to differ. If you walk too fast, you might just miss the open door leading to the underground club. The variety of genres rages from Italo, Cosmic, Balearic, Funk, Boogie, underground house and disco, new wave, acid, vaporwave, sometimes old school hip hop and French pop as well. It was a humid and gloomy Friday night when I decided to venture into this underground club for the first time. The concept of bringing your own booze and paying a minimal entry fee appealed to the miserly college student in me and I found myself descending down the white staircase into a smoky room.

The diversity of the people at the club was astounding – crammed with college students, exchange students, working professionals and travelers – quite a far cry from your atypical ‘LKF Bar’ crew – or as my acquaintance aptly described the crowd as ‘the hipster students at SCAD’. The DJs at Premium Sofa Lounge begin their set at midnight and the party continues into the wee hours of the morning, when the weary retire to bed but only the persistent remain. The club itself is conveniently located next to the Sheung Wan MTR station as well as the nearby 7-11, allowing revelers the benefit of tanking up on affordable alcohol and convenience of location, all for a reasonable entry price.

The owner of Premium is an eccentric man named Lucas, who I found constantly bustling all over the place and making wonderful small talk with the party-goers. He even went ahead to offer everyone freshly baked pizza at the end of the night, which is exactly what you need when the alcohol (et all the other substances) begins to wear off and the pain of the upcoming morning rears its ugly head.

All-in-all, Premium Sofa Club offers fantastic heady beats, a fantastic atmosphere and the chance to bring your own booze for a minimal entry free. The crowd at the club is chatty and friendly, with Lucas providing and caring for his customers all through the night. It’s particularly worth a visit during the nights where they host events, such as Heart of Darkness amongst others.
